Iíve got a project right now dude gave me a CD of a tape of a live performance complaining that itís all weak in the bottom and harsh in the treble. I donít know anything about how it was treated at any step of the way. I dicked with it for a half hour or so before it hit me that this was exactly what happened. In this case I donít think it even occurred to them to decode. Like I donít think they even knew it was a thing. I was able to hack together a decoder in Reaper in minutes and it really made all the difference.

Thereís another sounds almost like they did the opposite - recorded without encoding and played back with decoding on - but itís also actually damaged and kind of redundant. Trying to re-encode after the fact doesnít turn out so well.
