  • Tech Notes

    SHNs were decoded to wave and SF 6.0 was used to reassemble
    the tracks back to 1 long wave. CEP2.0 was used to align &
    synch the SBD & both AUD sources. CEP2.0 used to adjust the
    volume for both AUDs, matrix/CTR and LFE channels. Surcode
    CD Pro DTS was used to encode to DTS. The center matrix track
    is a 60% SBD, 40% AUD2 mix.

    I looked at the 4 pages of notes I had on this project and
    it made me sick to think about typing them up. So, although
    not complete, you will get a good idea of what was done to
    bring these recordings to this point.

    ALLOT of editing was done to keep the flow btwn songs. Both
    AUD recordings suffered from btwn song pauses that not only
    cut the crowd cheer out but clipped the beginning of many
    songs. The 2 AUD source coverage allowed my to patch 1 with
    the other in some situations. A couple spots I created a
    fake AUD recording by mixing crowd cheer with the SBD. This
    was effective at creating patches for the rear channels in
    the 5.1 presentation but also maintained a smooth quality in
    the stereo matrix mix as well. These patches are numerous
    and I think completely smooth and most likely undetectable.

    The SBD+AUD matrix details. The stereo matrix it is approx
    60% SBD, 20% Jerry Moore's AUD and 20% Steve Maizner's AUD.
    The matrix mix on the center channel is a 50/50 with just
    the SBD and Steve Maizner's AUD. I also D'EQ'd both sources
    to pull up the vocals and give the center channel a unique
    sound as not to detract from the front stereo imaging or the
    rear surround effect. You will also note that the rear channels
    are just Jerry's AUD and not a matrix of the 2 AUD sources. I
    did give that configuration a listen but opted for the single
    rear source. It was clearer and had more definition on its own.

    d1t01 The first 16.041 seconds of Minglewood blues was cut on
    the SBD. Starting this monster project with an unrecoverable
    flaw was unacceptable to me. I decided to patch that opening
    portion with a SBD and AUD recording from 5-7-77. As this
    patch ends you will hear some slight phasing as the stereo
    field moves. The result, although not perfect, I think
    provides the listener with a more enjoyable and natural
    listening experience. Maybe you disagree. For those of you
    who would rather have a patch using a matrix mix of the 2 AUD
    sources please feel free to do it yourself :^)

    d1t07-08 The SBD is missing approx 34.361 from 42:47.001 -
    43:16.362. This was patched using a matrix mix of the 2 AUD
    sources and then EQ'ed to best match the sound spectrum of
    the SBD. I also tried to match the volume on the SBD. A
    switch in sources is obvious to the listener but this is
    still pretty good. The switch back to SBD is actually
    really good as there are no vocals at that point.

    d2t02 A tiny right channel digital sizzle at 12:18.418.
    This was fixed using a quick channel swap. This is smooth
    and most likely undetectable.

    If you play this DTS-Audio-CD and hear static it is b/c you
    didn't really read the text file, did you?


    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 to 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 as you would burn any
    normal Audio-CD from FLAC files.
