    Thank you to mayormarionbarry and Charlie Miller for their beautiful work and seeds at etree.


    1) While there are minor gaps in all sources at various places, there is a three-minute gap in the AUD patch (Sennheiser 421) during Drums, so only the SBD plays for part of Drums.

    2) The speeds of all sources were relatively close (within 1%), so there were no MAJOR speed changes.

    3) I was extremely impressed with the results of merging these sources. (I have abandoned several other matrix projects simply because I do not like how the sources sound together.) While the Set I SBD is significantly better than the Set II SBD, which sounds "flat," the AUD source really rounded out the sound in Set II. I would say this is my best sounding matrix yet in terms of fullness of sound and syncing techniques - and an amazing show! Set II has some awesome moments as well - I like Space a lot.

    4) Enjoy!
