Location: Main floor, right section, about 20 rows back.
Gen: 0 from Master
MP3 Sample: Right click & save
Notes - by: Taper: I was located about 20 rows from the stage, in the main floor right section. This was two rows behind and three seats to the right of the soundboard. The first three tracks suffer due to heavy security that prevented me from checking the levels. The connection was bad and resulted in only one channel recording. I corrected this during the middle of 46 & 2 and the rest of the recording is in stereo. To fix the mono sound for the first tracks, I simply duplicated one channel to the other, so you'll notice the thin sound at the beginning "magically" transform into stereo about 2/3 of the way through track 3. I fixed a few channel dropouts by pasting the audio from the other track. They're noticeable around the end of track 3 and beginning of track 4.
Notes - by: Taper: Good recording. Solid. More crowd noise than source A but is definitely listenable, enjoyable & is a decent reflection of what Tool sounded like. However, some technical issues with the sound manufacture somewhat of a tinny sound that permeates the sound for the first few tracks. After 46 & 2 the sound is reasonably the same but when the crowd "hoots"; that can be somewhat of a deafening sensation - if you listen to this on headphones. Do not get me wrong, enjoyable & realistic sound but the limitations of the location of taper, microphones & recorder are somewhat noticeable. I am somewhat surprised the taper did not switch discs. All in all, worth a listen.
