Tracked & Pitch Adjusted by kingrue upload 1736

This was a project getting it prepared.
This source 2 cassette played noticeably fast all the way through and gradually slowed down.
I had to do quite a lot of work to figure out the pitch adjustment changes throughout the tape.
Thank goodness for source 1, which I used as a guideline.
Source 2 sounds much better now, I’m fairly happy with it.

I noticed that each tape source shares 1 particular fan in the crowd. You can hear the same person cheering, but in Source 1 that person is farther away from the taper and is closer in Source 2.
Which tells me that the 2 tapers were relatively close to each other.
The hand clapping and whistling are definitely different in both sources.
