I'm capturing a bunch of my 78s. I'm following along all the proper steps and applying proper curves for different labels.
Maybe I'm nuts, but applying the RIAA inverted curve invariably has the effect in EVERY case, no matter the label of the record, of worsening the sound to the point where it has so much high-end that idiosyncrasies of the low end are completely lost. Can anyone explain why this is the case?
I get that the RIAA curve is an electronic recording element that is erroneously placed on a 78 by capturing it into a contemporary system and that reversing it gets us to the purer signal, but why would that make it sound worse than even the live record?
Thought, guidance? I'd love to understand this.
