The MMMS Records Remastered

Since it seems I’m perhaps the sole provider on the Net of the audio from the two Flexidiscs that Marvel Comics produced in the 1960’s, I thought I’d offer them with superior sound compared to what I posted five years ago. Here they are, remastered for the best possible audio fidelity.

Technical notes:

  • Technics DD turntable, Shure MM cartridge, AGI pre-amp, AKG headphones.
  • Captured from AGI line level output, 24-bit resolution, 48 kHz sample rate.
  • A 60 Hz hum in the The Voices Of Marvel was removed with a 120 Hz high-pass filter.
  • Click removal used sparingly. No other noise reduction or equalization.
  • A dimple in The Voices Of Marvel causes a recurring thump between 3:15 and 3:35. It was reduced, but not eliminated, by the high-pass filter.
  • The left channel in each recording was deemed better and was used as the source, forced into mono, then exported as lossless WAV files.
  • WAV files converted to MP3 at 256 Kbps CBR.

  1. The post sure is old — ten years in September! eBay is always the best place to check, rather than scouring dealers tables at conventions. But complete MMMS kits, as originally shipped, are rare and very expensive. Occasionally someone on a Facebook group, like Marvel Comics Fans 1961-1986, will have a tip on something.
