Tracks 6 and 10 are not the Gish versions, but earlier demos. The 4 Spoken sections are presented in Spanish on the disc, and translated into English below.

Spoken #1: I always wonder, who am I? Why do I do it? I don't know. It's because there's no other way. Sometimes I ask God and he answers. The simple answer for simple questions.

That's how I see God. As a question.

Spoken #2: My sacred heart. I speak of my heart as if it were an entity seperate from me. I think the same thing about pain. It's like an evil spirit outside of me that's always with me. The pain that I feel is like a weight that guides me. There's no way to destroy it. It's my eternal opera.

Spoken #3: I want to triumph over you. I want respect. I want it all. God will help me to help myself. I don't know. Dreams and wishes become reality. Peace and love for humanity.

Spoken #4: The surreal and suspect dream -- I want to clearly remember it, but I can't. The dream lives in me. My desires control me. My thoughts follow. What is it that stops me from killing, from thinking, from recognizing my destiny? Nothing, absolutely nothing.

FLAC - Smashing Pumpkins "Reel Time Sessions 1989" - 2CD - remaster

**Remastered** by thir13en

Smashing Pumpkins
Reel Time Sessions

I've done parts here and there, but I've heard many requests for the whole thing. Now it's fresh!

Some of these were really nice recordings and decent versions of some cool tunes. The mixes are rough and probably thrown together in a rather efficient (translation: money saving) procedure. Balance was an issue on nearly every song, and each one was predictable to be either heavy left or heavy right. And many songs had huge leaps in disparity between certain instruments and ultimate peak levels.

But what was interesting was to see how they reacted to the mastering process. In A-B comps, the midrange, or real meat of the guitars just jumped out on the remaster. So much so that I would often go through my settings to see if anything was adding that in an overzealous artifical manner. I found nothing really, as I hardly boosted the mid's at all. It's just that when I did the basic mastering compression and maximization, that's what wanted to really jump out, and my ears just loved it. Made quite a difference in the power and emotion of many of the songs.

As tempting as it was to edit out the giggling, the banter, the noisy intro-outro of songs, etc, I decided to leave it alone, but that was after I had already given "Fat Man Blues (abandoned)" it's own track, so that edit remains an anomaly to this version.

FLAC - Smashing Pumpkins "Quiet and Other Songs" - 2CD - Fall 1992 outtakes - remaster

*a thir13en Remaster*

The "album" version, lovingly declicked and mischievously tinkered, bleeding loud 'n rocking proud.

Each nasty snap, crackle and pop was sought, targeted and eliminated by hand. At difficult spots, a second process involving automated plug-in thresholds helped to further control the wave-form anamolies.

Why do it by hand rather than a "cleaning" plug-in? Because although the count of pops was easily near or just over a hundred, all totaled those noises add up to less than 1 second of actual audio. Processing everything would cut off natural peaks of the drums, vocal stabs and guitar attacks, causing possible "stuttering" among other unwanted nuances. This way those stay pure.

The secondary process was used on about 10% of the pops, where the hand-pasted fix didn't work or needed more help. It involves strapping the Waves X-Click plug-in to the master output, then setting the de-click threshold to kick in precisely at the bad pop spots. It safely kills anything left.

On a few occaisions, the pops were generated by thumps in the recording. The pops are gone, but the thumps remain. I don't recall exactly all of them, but there's at least 3 obivous spots where this occurs.

The mischief begins with some light de-hiss, sound-printed from the surface noise. Then EQ tweaks and channel balancing (Waves ReQ), the mastering compression (Waves R-comp), the low-end warmth and detail of the BBE, and the finishing touches with the Waves L3. It's slammin'. Hard.

Sources used were the single file whole-sides. No edits (except for the 46 seconds of nothing on the front end of side 1, and 20 some seconds of nothing at the end of side 2).

Splits were made at what seemed the most reasonable point pertaining to each song.

Rock out, peace on,
