    Matrix by Hunter Seamons using Final Cut Pro (FLAC>AIFF>Final Cut>WAV>FLAC)
    September 28, 2008


    1) There were occasional, brief "phasing" sounds in the SBD, yet not in the AUD, particularly during Hamza el Din Song #1, Promised Land (and after the song), and I Need a Miracle. Most of this seems to be from Miller's patching of the source with SHNID 6100, which sounded differently when mixed with the AUD, or on it's own.

    2) There is a noticeable tonal shift in the AUD during Hamza el Din Song #1 from the mic being moved around.

    3) There were cuts in the SBD and AUD between songs, whereupon only one source plays in the matrix.

    4) Interestingly, Lee Oskar's harp is more audible on the AUD than the SBD, which is good.

    5) As noted above, unfortunate cuts in the AUD right after a stellar Other One and a raging Sugar Magnolia, so the roaring crowd is just a little low during those parts. Cut in the AUD for the tail end of the recording as well.
