Gathering Of The Vibes
Original master recording: Neumann TLM-170 (30' split cardoids) -> Sonosax -> Teac DAP20 (m)
DAT playback: Sony R500 -> Sound Devices 722 digital input (@24/48)
Mastered: Soundforge Pro 10.0c - *All file manipulation in Soundforge done at 24 bits*. Time aligned L/R channels (removed about 300 samples from the left channel), then sample rate conversion 48khz to 44.1khz using iZotope 64-Bit SRC set higher than "Highest Quality" setting w/anti-alias filter. 24 bit file then processed with SOX 14.3.1 (as recommended, keeping the file at 24 bits during the processing) to remove pre-emphasis which was applied by the Teac A>D converter. Then back to Soundforge for volume normalization and dithering to 16 bits using using iZotope MBIT+ with Ultra noise shaping, with high dither settings. Tracked in CDWav.

There are 3 distinct 6 second dropouts in this recording: 21:25 - 21:31, 38:07 - 38:14, and 38:37 to 38:44. I'm not sure what caused them.
I saw and recorded a TON of Project Logic shows, but none have made it online into my BARN series, until now. And this one basically made it in on the coattails of BARN76, which I pulled out because of the awesome moe. set that preceeded it at this festival. I can't say I remember much about this Project Logic set, but after listening back to it for this posting, it is pretty awesome in itself. With Project staples Melvin Gibbs and Casey Benjamin leading the band, Logic informs us at the outset that he is "ready to take you on a trip" and sure enough this band does. Special guest guitarist Fuzz (from Deep Banana Blackout) fits in superbly as he had previously done a bunch of studio recording with and appeared onstage with Logic. Also, Dean Bowman (ex singer of the Screaming Headless Torsos) joins for some freeform vocals near the end of the set. He is an interesting character to say the least and takes the show to some unexpected places.
So enjoy your trip into "something new, something different" for BARN77.
