    Special Thanks

    Many thanks to James Young and Clay Brennecke for their wonderful
    recording. And HUGE thanks to both Jamie Waddell and Todd Evens for
    making this project possible with their amazing work on their pristine
    transfers and excellent editing/mastering. I am simply a cog in the
    wheel and lucky has hell to work with such incredible source material.
    It is the guys listed above that deserve the bulk of the credit. So
    a big THANK YOU!


    Notes on the Source Material

    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.

    Nice and well balanced FOB. This upfront FOB grabs quite a bit
    of the sound but not as much atmosphere as you'd like for making
    a matrix mix. However, this does help the sterile, straight SBD
    out quite a bit. While it doesn't completely fix the strange
    "digitally" sound of the SBD it does help quite a bit.


    Tech Notes

    Jamie Waddell sent me the 16/48 waves files as one long track
    for both the SBD and the AUD. CEP2.0 was used to align & synch
    both sources (time compress and expand). CEP2.0 was used to
    perform the multitrack mixdown at 24/48. Wave L3 was used for
    minor limiting (-0.7 threshold), and no EQ was used on the two
    primary sources. This is a 60% SBD, 40% AUD mix.

    About the 24/48

    This represents the 24 bit files that are the result of all the
    editing, mastering, digital sound processing and the multitrack
    mixdown preserved in 24 bit. It is unclear exactly what we have
    in the way of high resolution. However what we have here
    would not be represented accurately in 16/44. What you are getting
    is the full result of the matrix mix process. How much different
    does this sound? is this better? A little and yes. This is more
    accurate and has more dynamic range. 24/48 resolution versus a
    16/44 of the same material will usually result in very subtle but
    important differences. Most of it relying on the quality of
    the DVD-A player and the D to A conversion. With that in mind,
    this 24 bit copy is no different. Small but important gains over
    the same material in 16/44. This is just one man's take. Take
    it or leave it.
