I feel like there should be a setting to keep them active in Unattended mode...

I found my mistake. In the Keep Processes and Services boxes, I forgot to enclose them in brackets (  ). MC and LE seem to work now in Unattended Mode.

Onward to the listening tests!

Ciao,
Joseph

Here's the link for HB installer if you want it (I find it very useful): https://ufile.io/3pp84nqf

Hi, George,

Thanks for the direct link -- so much easier!

It's a good app and made installation seamless. No messy syntax to worry about.

Cheers,
Joseph

First listening impressions were positive... I listened without Majority Clean and Lemonade Elitist and then with both activated... Together they removed a slight veil, which was more noticeable on some cuts than on others...

Now that they were enabled to persist in Unattended Mode, I ran the listening tests again and my impression was the same as before. This tells me that it does not matter in which mode they are active  -- Unattended or not, what I heard was the same as described earlier.

I also tried listening with MC alone and MC + LE and heard very little difference with the addition of LE. At least 99% of the benefit seemed to come from MC. At the moment, I'm really not sure if LE made any improvement at all or whether I was just imagining it. However, it did not seem to do any harm.

As usual, your impressions may vary.

Cheers,
Joseph

One final observation. Today I listened with either Majority (Minority) Clean 2.84 or Lemonade Elitest 4.4 activated, but not both together.

With only Majority Clean activated, I felt more involved with the music than with Lemonade Elitest. While LE did not degrade the music, I just found it less captivating and no longer have it set to start automatically. Sometimes less really is more.

I encourage listeners to experiment with both and draw their own conclusions.

Joseph
