Nice upgrade! Though, MOB did find evidence that some of the BBC 1969 tracks may have been processed. I kept the Spectral View of Track 7 that Ron Toon posted, together with this SHN set.
The only unfortunate thing is that there were a number of crackle/pops, most obvious on Track 5, but other tracks were affected as well. I had to fix these, I felt it was worth the effort.
I ended up fixing the pops/snaps on ten tracks (1-8, 11 and 12). Some 'pops' were VERY minor, others were quite obvious, like the ones during the first bit of Track 5, 'Daybreak (Grantchester Meadows)'.
I extracted the SHNs to WAV, then used Cool Edit Pro v2.1 to manually remove the digital pops, I aligned on sector boundaries with Traders Little Helper and reSHNed with MKW Audio Compression Toolkit. New ST5 Checksum created with TLH - Jan. 9, 2008.
