This is a matrix, done by hansokolow in ProTools, of the following digital sources:

DSBD: shnid=79022
SBD -> Dat (44.1k)


DAUD: shnid=9772
Primary Source: DFOB MAD>D>CD
Recorded by Dave Brotman FOB DFC, (Section 2, row 15, seat 1)
Schoeps MK4/CMC3 (ortf/110deg)>Oade PS>Oade Mod. SV255
(MIT reference XLR interconnects).

Tapers became friends with the head security guard and ran a D5 copy for him every nite (a tradition that was apparently carried on in following years by other tapers)

Secondary Source: 20th row FOB B&K4011's> DAT; DAT> SHN via M1> Zoltrix> Cooledit2k> CDWAV> MKW

Secondary Source used to patch two master dat dropouts in Promised Land and two in Eyes.  Each dropout was approx. one second in length. Dropouts patched/crossfaded in soundforge.


My Notes:  One of the first shows I made a matrix of, so I don't have notes, but it turned out quite well.

Caveat: I don't take meticulous notes of every splice and adjustment I make, it's already time consuming enough, but I will explain my process.  Every disc I make is seamless for longer media.  I use the most reliable source, usually whichever is digital, if both are the same generally it's the SBD, and the other sources is time shifted to match that.  With analog sources there is always some wavering.  Within reason I try to adjust for the by making small, millisecond cuts, lining up the drum beats.  These are smoothed over and when mixed with another source, undetectable.  There still may be occasional phasing, particularly in the vocals and the cymbals.  Believe me that I do everything I can to minimize problems like that.  That includes cutting out spots of diginoise and blips and things.  Whenever there is something missing from one source but present on the other, I bring up the volume a tad on the source that's left, to minimize the jarring nature of one source dropping out.  When the crowd noise at the start of a set is less than two minutes or so, I don't make a separate crowd track.  I export the final result to aiff files, and then convert those into flacs at the smallest setting, using xACT for Mac, and that also makes then SBE safe.

I hope everyone enjoys the product of my labor, and I'm glad to give something back to the community that has given me and others so much music over the years.  Thanks, brothers and sisters.
