tech info:
-- internal Samplitude timebase setting - 120 BPM - SMPTE 25 f/s
-- 3.3 per cent increased speed correction - "samplitude-speed-correction.jpg" spec display
-- 6 dB tape hiss reduction - "samplitude-dehisser.jpg" graph display

Trader's Little Helper __
-- file conversions - Flac > Wav; Wav > Flac
-- fixed SBEs
-- created checksums and torrent files

Lexicon Alpha device
Sennheiser HD 280 pro headphones

-- processing new source at 192 kHz / 24-bit on my system creates glitches
-- down-converted & down-sampled new source to 96 kHz / 16-bit
-- re-assembled new source - d1t04 & d1t05
-- 3.3% fixed speed increase applied to new source. It corrects pitch mis-match due to slow speed, which slues. Flawed slow speed duration = 06m:42s:21f; new corrected & matched speed duration = 06m:30s:00f
-- dehissing applied to new source to reduce tape hiss by 6 dB
-- normalized new source levels to match old source levels
-- switched channels on new source to match old source

tracking & editing:
-- up-sampled Miller source d1t04 & d1t05 to 96 kHz
-- re-assembled Miller source - d1t04 & d1t05
-- edited the patches using X-fades
-- down-sampled to 44.1 kHz
-- re-tracked d1t04 & d1t05
-- corrected track order on all discs - prevents CD overburn on disc one

d1t04 St Stephen patched w/ new source 01:33 - 02:39 - new track length is 02:39
d1t05 It's A Sin patched w/ new source 00:00 - 01:50 - new track length is 03:51

"I was out doing yardsales recently.  I had the SYF hat on and was looking for some fans for the hot Tucson summer.  Got to talking with this one fella and the GD came up. He said to me after hearing about LL that he had some tapes.  I asked him if he knew where they came from.  He said "I cant tell ya man".  I thot he meant that he " didnt know cant tell" but out he walked with a lil treasure chest of some cassettes. The cases werent pretty but the tapes were high end pro tapes.  I asked him again where he got them and again he said "I cant tell you" but it seems your folks in the trading world might like them  Well, i got home and found too many treasure to note.  He told me they werent always on the best dubbing deck and some had been played and were at least 25 years old (some older) but he was sure that these versions were recorded by what he termed a "dear old buddy" and official channels and he had them for years and years and would like some of them to see the light of day.  More to come."
