    Notes on the Source Material

    SBD (shnID = 525)
    It is shocking that this is still the only shnID for this show
    as it is so old. However, it is likely until now, a better source
    could not be located. It is noted that this source, like all in
    circulation, has a small amount of digi-fuzz and a dropout at
    the start of Bertha. My original DAT had the same problem so I
    belive that is indeed true.

    This is another strange 1991 SBD. Let me explain. Quite a few
    digital SBD's for the 1991 year are in circulation. I am sure
    some of you have noticed a sorta strange sound quality to them.
    What makes them sound they way they do is unknown to me. I'd
    call them too digital. They tip-toe along the edge of blurry.
    If I had to guess I would think a portable DAT deck was being fed
    an analog signal into the line in. And although the levels were
    set appropriately the deck was overloaded by 'too hot' a feed
    from the SBD.

    AUD (shnID = 97389)
    Nice and well balanced FOB. This upfront FOB grabs quite a bit
    of the sound from the PA with just enough atmosphere you like for
    making a matrix mix. While it doesn't completely fix the strange
    "digitally" sound of the SBD it does help quite a bit.


    Tech Notes

    FLACs decoded and Wavemerge was used to reassemble the entire
    show back to 1 long wave. CEP2.0 was used to align & synch all
    of the sources. SF8.0 was used for the EQ setting on the LFE and
    CTR channels. SF8.0 used to adjust the volume for the center,
    surround and LFE channels. SF8.0 used to adjust the volume for
    the center, surround and LFE channels. SF8.0 was used to perform
    the hard limiting on the LFE channel. Surcode CD Pro DTS was
    used to encode to DTS. This incorporates 6 channels of DTS
    encoded 16/44 wave files.

    Entire show (and all disc changes) are seamless and can be
    played start to finish without inturruption.

    d1t01 "Tuning" Is mostly from the AUD source. Crossfades
    to the SBD just a few seconds before the first song.

    d1t03 "Bertha" Small amount of Dig Fuzz was patch using a
    matrix mix of shnID 97389 & 94246. This was then EQed,
    levels adjusted and crossfaded with the SBD to make the
    source change transistion as smooth as possible. This
    patch came out excellent and is in no way distracting.
