Tech Notes

FLACs were decoded to wave and SF 8.0 was used to reassemble
the tracks back to 1 long wave. CEP2.0 was used to align &
synch all 3 sources. Soundforge 8.0 was used to remove a line
buzz that ran throughout the SBD source. Wave L3 Ultramaximazer
used to perform compression. Multitrack mixdown was performed
using CEP2.0. This is a 60% SBD, 20% AUD1, 20% AUD2 mix.

Multitrack Mixdown Settings

Stereo Matrix
SBD -3.5db
AUD1 -7db
AUD2 -8db


Remaster done largely to utilize Waves L3 which I did not
have at my disposal back in 2005. The drums ran extremely
hot on the SBD recording. Wave L3 was able to best contain
the drum while increasing the volume on the rest of the mix.

I also was able to utilize MLP encoding for the six channels
of 24/96 high resolution audio for use with the DVD-Audio
version. I also did not have at my disposal back in 2005.

Disc 1 and disc 2 can be assembled seamlessly on longer media.

There was an audible line buzz running throughout the SBD
recording. This was likely not going over the PA as the buzz
is not apparent on either of the AUD sources. The SBD DAT
recording continued to run after the feed from the SBD had
ended and the buzz continued. This leads me to concluded it
was a line feed problem. Bad cable possibly? Because the
recording continued after the music ended a perfect recording
of the buzz was recorded. This allowed me to accurately
capture and then remove the noise throughout the recording
very accurately without disturbing the fidelity of the
recording. This was done with Soundforge 8.0 using the
highest quality setting.

The 2 AUD tapes made that night were from similar locations
as you can hear the same ‘cat calls’, claps, etc. on both
recordings. However the 2 recordings still blended well
together and had different and unique sound characteristics.

Additional Formats

This show is available in the following formats:

Samples Folder – 4 Additional FLAC Files

Here you will find 4 samples. One is a short snip of the noise
pattern that ran throughout the recording. This noise was
particularly evident in the quite portions of mellow or acoustic
numbers (turn the volume up to hear). The 2nd clip is the SBD
with the noise pattern still intact. The third is a sample of
Matrix Mix after the noise pattern was methodically removed. The
final sample is a side-by-side of SBD and Matrix recordings
(approx 20 sec MTX, 20 secs SBD, 20 secs MTX and 20 secs SBD).
