    to align & synch both of the sources. CEP2.0 used to adjust
    the volume for the AUD source, center and LFE channels.

    DTS-Audio-CD Info

    Left Channel SBD: Master Reel -> Master Dat
    Right Channel SBD: Master Reel -> Master Dat

    Mono Mix -5db SBD: Master Reel -> Master Dat

    Left Channel -3db FOB: ECM-280 mics > TC-152
    Right Channel -3db FOB: ECM-280 mics > TC-152

    Mono Mix -4db SBD: Master Reel -> Master Dat



    This is all that circulates in the SBD source.

    The AUD source was lightly EQ'ed. A slight high end cut.

    The AUD source was a bit overwhelming in the 5.1 mix. While
    I usually leave the levels alone, this time I mixed the AUD
    into the rear channels at -3db. In my experience louder
    rear channels is an undiserable effect.

    AUD Patch Samson approx 4:35 to fill missing part of the SBD
    29:58.490 to 31:31.560 total of 01:33.070. This is somewhat
    detectable but hardly. Which is really a statement to just
    how great the AUD source is.

    SBD Patch Drums approx 02:37 to fill missing part of the AUD
    44:07.731 to 44:15.904 total of 0:08.172. This is smooth and
    most likely undetectable.

    Missing 22.027 crowd on AUD source between Around & Around
    and High Time. SBD trimmed accordingly to match with a 3
    second crossfade. Smooth and most likely undetectable.


    More On DTS

    Today's audio standards are moving towards multi-channel
    sound, like DTS and Dolby Digital. While the Audio-CD
    standard (Red Book) hasn't changed to accommodate these
    new sound formats, it is still possible to go around the
    specification and put a 5.1 surround recording on a regular
    Audio-CD. To play a DTS-Audio-CD you must connect your
    DVD/CD player via a digital cable (optical or coaxial) to
    your DTS Dolby-Digital receiver. It is not 100% sure that
    your receiver will recognize a DTS-Audio CD, so the first
    time you're trying to playback a DTS-Audio-CD you must do
    a test to determine if it can. Begin with the volume very
    low, start the disc and raise the volume gradually. NEVER
    listen to a DTS-Audio-CD through the analog audio outputs
    of your CD/DVD player.

    Burning Instructions
    Burn them the absolute same way you would burn any normal
    Audio-CD from .shn files.
