"Recently a friend asked me for a CD of music I wrote and
recorded many years ago. Unfortunately, the material existed only
as a 4-track cassette tape master, but the tape had been recorded
on a Yamaha MT120 home studio 4-track, with a speed of 9.5
centimeters per second and with dbx (a noise reduction method)
enabled. Though the tape was hardly a sonic or musical masterpiece,
it did sound good enough to warrant recording to hard disk for
processing before eventually burning the songs to CD."
"This article follows the process of recording the material to
the hard disk, editing and filtering it with signal processing
software, and finally creating an audio CD from the results,
complete with custom covers for the jewel case. I'll present and
describe the tools used in each stage of the process, and I'll
explain how you too can turn your computer into a powerful audio CD
mastering machine, using only free and open-source Linux
