Really nice Birdsong set 1 closer.

Not one of my favorite or best recordings that I have done, however since not many other Audience recordings circulate, here this is. My recordings of the year before  in 1988 were much better and only the Toa K1’s. I used a Sony MX-12 mixer, apparently grey market in the USA, That I found at the Rose Bowl flea market. The MX-12 is powered by 6 D cells and has only either 1/4” TS or RCA inputs for 6 channel mixer with 2 vu meters. This was a 4 mic mix Toa k1’s on wide bar spaced at 30” and the Sennheiser 416 t (I think) short shotguns into the mixer, mixed on the fly.  The 416’s were borrowed from an unnamed art college that I used to attend by an old friend, it’s possible it was a pair of 415’s at some earlier shows I tried the 816 but liked the shorter 416/415’s better. Mic’s on same stand in the OTS just behind the board at one of my favorite outdoor venues. The Frost is so amazing and the sound was very full of fun. It was a windy day but you could see the wind sailing in the eucalyptus trees that surrounding the Amphitheater, at times this cause phasing and the music to swirl as well.  I think the mix was more of the 416’s then the Toa K1’s which I think lost out on the low end and some of the openness but it doesn’t sound that bad. I think we were a level up and slightly on Phil’s side at the back corner of the house mix position, though its hard to remember exactly where we were. I didn’t always take notes, sometimes I did other times I didn’t and always thought I’d remember but now all these years later, it can be challenging.

No other processing or eq’ing
