Software to liven up dead recordings?
Any recommendations for good free or low cost software to liven up dead recordings? I would like to re-encode the original. Its mostly for rock, so I'm not afraid of "altering" it. There are just some recordings, even new ones, that have a really dead sound stage (well dead everything). The type that sound better in your car than at home. I've tried some filters that "enhance" or "spacialize" but they don't seam to help. I am thinking something that would give the "Bose" effect would help, like old 301's and 501's.
