Quake PC game CDDA soundtrack and pre-emphasis 2014-03-03 09:35:30 I recently went to rip the CDDA tracks from the original Quake PC game CD-ROM (music composed by Trent Reznor). Exact Audio Copy reports this disc as having pre-emphasis.However, does anyone else find this suspicious? This game was released in 1996, which seems late for anyone to be using pre-emphasis. Also, since this is a PC game soundtrack, these tracks were originally intended to be played in CD-ROM drives, which (as far as I know) are not capable of de-emphasis.I have listened to my rip with de-emphasis (using SoX) and without, and I honestly can't tell which one is correct. Does anyone know?
