Found a plugin you guys may find interesting. Search (ctrl+f) "relife" on the page. Use it with foorbar's VST adapter, and set it to 3-peak mode. It seems to improve layering a lot, and reduces some of the roughness in vocals caused by dynamic range compression (instrumentals crowding in on the vocals, distorting them in very rapid, audible oscillations). It's not quite a "re-FLAC", obviously, but something like a "re-256kbps" plugin--even for modern music that is 256kbps or 320kbps, because much modern music, as we all, presumably, know is routinely pre-amped to the point of clipping. Unfortunately, it causes random pauses. If someone wants to rework this plugin so it doesn't randomly cut out....you'd get a purple heart, medal of valor, your paper in the picture, and droves the opposite sex lining up at your door. Or maybe just a ton of likes here on head-fi.
