    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 the SBD & both AUDs. This is a 60% SBD, 20% AUD1, 20% 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.

    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?
