  • This is a matrix, done by hansokolow in ProTools, of the following sources:

    SBD: shnid=9364
    Source: Hartford Civic Center SBD feed to HCN studios via ISDN > HCN Master Reel > DAT(Sony ES)recorded/(Tascam DA20mkII) playback>Pioneer PDR 555>CDR>WAV>SHNv3.

    CDR seeds of this seldom seen complete show with AUD splices (source unknown) provided by David Huck, Matt Fuggi, & Michael Dixon (splicing and tracking).

    d1t1 @ 4:14 aud splice begins
    d1t2 start/stop during dead space @ 9:24
    d1t3 return to sbd @ 01:40, minor digifuzz replaced in Rt channel at 02:29.18 by copying L. channel.
    d1t05 @ 5:53 aud splice begins (during crowd noisde) and continues through d1t06 0:17 (half of first verse).
    d2t05 - 08:52 - minor digifuzz - left alone.


    AUD: shnid=94400
    Sennheiser ME-80's>Technics SV-MD1 (1st row OTS)
    1st set recorded on Maxell R-90 DAT, 2nd Set Maxell R-120 DAT
    DAT MASTER>Tascam DA-30MKII>Sound Devices 702>Wavelab 5 (Fades & Sample Rate Conversion)>CDWAV>FLAC)
    Recorded & Transferred By Keith Litzenberger


    My notes: songs from set were shrunk by varying degrees, song by song. Set 2 was much more consistent, leading me to believe set 1 has an analog generation, while set 2 is all digital. There was some slight diginoise just before Spoonful, and some other short missing sections on the SBD that had been patched already.
