  • Mastering Notes:
    Edits done in Bias Peak w/ Nomad Factory AMT Multi MAx

    Way up front FOB -- almost to the point where it was too loud. At times the mics sound very saturated, even though the levels were no where near clipping. This recording at times is fantastic, but it is an outdoor show with wind that causes some phasing and some clarity issues - especially in the second set. No other AUD tape circulates of this show.
