danlynch Master Series Volume 9

Master Audience Recording

Nak 100's Cardiod Capsules > Sony D-7 DAT
Recorded from Mezz2 with microphone stand, eye level
with the upper portion of the large PA stacks

DAT Master > Panasonic SV-3800 > digital coaxial > Audigy 2 ZS Platinum >
Soundforge* > 16 bit 44.1 wav > CD Wave (tracking) > Flac Frontend  (level 7,
align sector boundaries) > flac

Soundforge was used for extraction, set fades and a level boost.  This 8 year old
DAT played cleanly straight through on one play.  Although recorded from the
Mezz2 section, this recording is quite clear as a result of the huge stacks that
fill the cavernous Hammerstein and reach up to the Mezz2 level, and the use of
hypercardiod uni-directional microphones.  As a result, this is less boomy recording
than one made from the floor of this venue. Unfortunately, the sound system in the
venue did hit "the ceiling" and there is some peak level distortion in the louder
moments.  This is not caused by the recording, as my levels were well below the
maximum.  Ultimately, I was surprised at how enjoyable this recording came out
considering all the above.

This show captures the fun and energy of BFF at its peak of creativity and
popularity, and features a few rare nuggets.  Enjoy!
