General Notes:

Given the multiple sources available on the Llama, I decided to put the
effort into editing a matrix of all three nights from this wonderful run
at the Uptown. The Glassberg AUDs are very nice and full, standing on
their own as excellent representative recordings.  The SBD sources of all
three nights have the reputation of being some of the crispiest boards
out there, and after a simple test on the Ship O' from the 3rd night I was
motivated to dive into editing land. The result is a worthwile listen,
especially when you turn it up.

Timeline/Tracking Notes:

No music is missing as both sources have excellent coverage.  However,
in order to fit the first set on one 80 min. disc, I edited out some
crowd in between songs, crossfading so the transitions are smooth.
The transition between the disc 2 and 3 can be put together seemlessly.

Editing Notes:

- Pitch
Both sources were pitched differently, the AUD being the sharpest,
and the SBD being the flatest.  I used the SBD as my master timeline
and pitch referenced the AUD to it. The AUD on average had to be pitched
down about -.18 (18 cents) to achieve pitch correction - 1.00 being
100 cents which is a semitone.  I did not reference A=440 as I did not
desire to pitch adjust the SBD.  It is very close though to A=440.

- Synch
Even after pitch correcting the other two sources to the FOB AUD,
because of the speed fluctuation within a given source, multiple edits
were performed to keep the sources synched.  Because the SBD was my
master pitch and time ref, the AUD was synched to the SBD (too many
edits to list).

- Sonic Quality/Matrix ratio
I did choose to employ a slight amount of limiting to the SBD (Waves L2)
to give it a slight amount of punch and presence. Conceptually,  all
I was trying to do here is to add some dimension to the SBD, which is
pretty dry but very crisp, by using the ambience of the AUD. The result
is a lively but clear recording, hopefully close to how it sounded at
the show. If I had to guess the SBD/AUD ratio would be somewhere between
3:1 and 4:1, leaning more towards the 4:1 end of things.

- Edits
The following are places where the SBD and AUD had holes or
incomplete coverage in reference to the final matrix timeline.

SBD:
d1t01 (5:36:36 - 5:37:52) - missing
d1t01 (9:11:60 - 9:14:25) - missing
d1t01 (9:49:42 - 10:34:52) - missing (crowd)
d1t03 (9:10:00 - 9:35:45) - missing (crowd)
d1t04 (9:49:42 - 11:15:42) - missing (crowd)
d1t06 (5:41:04 - 5:50:58) - missing (crowd)
d1t07 (7:40:17 - 8:24:25) - missing (crowd)
d1t08 (5:00:24 - 5:31:59) - missing (crowd)
d1t09 (8:29:73 - 9:10:56) - missing (crowd)
d2t01 (0:00:00 - 1:29:01) - missing (crowd)
d2t04 (7:19:41 - 8:09:50) - missing (crowd)
d2t06 (0:47:45 - 0:54:34) - missing
d2t04>5 (9:20:03 - 0:10:34) - missing
d3t06 (4:18:67 - 5:22:62) - missing (crowd)
d3t03 (2:21:67 - 2:22:42) reduced volume by 7dB due to vicious feedback

AUD:
d3t03 (2:21:67 - 2:22:42) reduced volume by 17dB due to vicious feedback
Set 1 had parts of the crowd in between songs edited out so as to fit
the whole set on one disc.

Note that alot of the missing elements from the SBD source are just
crowd segments except for the 2 cuts in Stranger, a cut in the post
He's Gone jam, and a cut in the transition from Black Peter to GDTRFB;
