This is the double vinyl reissue of the album with all the tracks. This is the 180g release pressed at Pallas version.

The waveform represents all the tracks of the album.

Like the Ed6 DVD stereo version, this is one of the most dynamic versions. You can notice fine peaks representing the guitar attacks. A very nice pressing work has been done for this vinyl.

The curve represents the average frequency distribution over the sample “Before You Accuse Me”.

The interesting features on this curve are the following:

  1. The two curves are globally superposed up to 20 kHz, but the yellow arrows indicate 2 very narrow attenuations of 10 dB above 15 kHz. The width of these zones being very small, the difference is almost inaudible at these frequencies.
  2. The high frequency cuts at 20kHz due to the master. This is noise (green area) on the Ed2 vinyl due to the analog noise of vinyl, it is smaller than on the Ed1 vinyl.

Spectrogram is another representation of frequency versus time of a track. For each channel (right and left), horizontal axis represents time, and the vertical axis represents frequency. The amplitude is represented by the intensity (brightness) of the color of each point in the image.

The yellow arrow reveals the limit around 20 kHz due to the master. Beyond 20 kHz (green arrow), there is noise or distortion due to the vinyl playback method.
