Taped by Todd Neville & Ian Stone ([email protected]
~20'from stage, 5' right of center. Seat Location: ORCH R/C, Row HH, Seat 101. This was pretty much the place to tape from at this theatre. the tapes prove it.
We used a 6' Stand, and had the mic's in the ORTF position.
Notes: Beginning of first set came earlier than expected because Al from moe was scheduled to open and did not.
Therefore, there are slight problems at the beginning of the tape. To correct this problem,
I have patched in a taper-section source, also mbho603/ka200's with a sound devices mp2 preamp and a dap-1.
(First 0:10.30 is from taper section, then there is a slight levels increase as it transitions to the FOB version. the 10min30sec from the taper section includes the
banter/crowd noise at the beginning of the set. The transition is in the middle of Triumph:)
The split is located at 7:18 during Triumph (D1T02).
From about 10min30sec>10min32.043sec both sources are mixed. before this 2.043 second time frame, the source is
mbho603/ka200>mp2>dap1 (taper section, x/y co-incident position), after the 2.043 second time frame the source is the
fob (mbho603a/ka200n>mp2>adc20>m1). I used soundforge to perform this operation, measuring very carefully to the milisecond, doing my best to match up the two files.

Used Soundforge to apply fades at beginning and end of sets.
