Notes - by: Taper: Missed a few seconds of guitar feedback at beginning of concert. Hope all is going well. Regarding Source D, I'm the fella. I like your summary! Hit the nail on the head with the sound. I have been testing different sounds with different settings, and even with the levels at 0, I was still clipping on the right side. I only know this from the wave and other shows. I was somewhere between BC and Texas when the show was on. Either way, I've picked up a 10 db pad today, and I tried a different mic setting on the MT. I decided not to touch Su's recording at all only because I did test it on a few peoples machines as dvd audio, both edited and untouched, and in my friends studio, the unedited sounded very nice (minus the clipping which was my bad). My home speaker setup isn't quite good enough yet to do top notch editing, but I may pick up a good set so that if I do edit, it will be good out of the gate. I'll keep an eye for when you post. It never hurts cranking the tunes when you just want to relax!
Notes - by: Galen: I really like this recording. I honestly do. From the rumor I heard, a fella's friend taped this show for him as he was out of town. To Susannah, nice job! When this was posted comments from people that downloaded this ranged from perfect quality to poor quality; gives an indication of how subjective perceptions really are. To my ears, this is balanced, clear & concise. Very live sounding. I do believe that Cardioid microphones were, by far, the better choice for any of these mini tour performances, that is for sure. The binaural mics tended to get buried in the bass-heavy sound. There may be a layer of some very, very high level distortion that I think you is an issue at different intervals; the MP3 sample I provided will give an indication.

"We had a new album come out. Apparently it went platinum in Canada. And I'd just like to say what the fuck dudes - what about triple platinum - buy it again. I'm trying to put a new wing on the winery - help me out; I said, I love Canada."
