Wow it seems like such a never ending learning curve. It's funny how I can edit something and then listen back to it at a later time and wonder 'what the heck was I thinking'.

My dilemma is cheap recording equipment and possibly undue tenacity to think I can edit it away!

Here I go again: Yes, high pass filter but not too much! Currently I'm thinking the low end needs to be slightly below the middle peaks area (100-300 hertz), as recordings with a dynamic mic seem to produce.

So only needing high pass on my DR-05 recordings where I did not use an extension (dynamic mic), but used the built-in condensers which pick up a ton of low end.

Also, the DR' has built in low cut which I will probably enable to 80 hertz next time, if I record w/o the dynamic mic. Choices are 40, 80, or 120 and 80 is usually around where I need the high pass, ... hard lesson.

Other than that, to bring things down further in other areas I can use what ever then, with the low end problem being THE big PROBLEM hopefully solved.

My new reedits will be labeled ELU for edit (like) Line Up, Line Up being my song that came out good! I looked back on my notes and looked at the plot spectrum's and realized it was recorded with the dynamic mic and little editing was needed just (mainly) manually lowering loud areas with GCom compressor and Audacity Limiter, not even touching parts of the song. That's the way I like it, as natural as possible.

New ELU reedit so far is "Do You Know? S2ELU" at https://www.reverbnation.com/revblackdog

Compare to (my last reedits) "Egm" that I took too much low end out of and sound tinny.

"Line Up S3E1" is also at https://www.reverbnation.com/revblackdog

Lo-fi, lo-cost music production (thanks Audacity!),

There will be neural adaptation when listening to a track on repeat.
So returning to it after a break, (during which the adaptation wears-off), it will sound different.
Spectrograms don't suffer from that.
