2 taper matrix
24 bit version

Taper 1: Binko
Gear: Audio Technica AT 831 mics > Tascam DR-08
Location: immediately behind the soundboard to the right

Taper 2: }{eywood
Gear: Tascam DR-08
Location: 20 feet in front of hillside PA speaker

Transfers and mastering by }{eywood
Lineage for both: DR-08 (wav @ 24/96) > USB > Adobe Audition 1.5 (EQ, multitrack synchronization & mixdown, normalization, splits & fades) > Xrecode II (flac 8)

This is a mix of two recordings designed to counter the weaknesses of both. Binko's tape had a bit of wind rumble for the last 20 minutes or so (it got really windy near the end, and the windscreens he bought can't withstand gusts like we were having). My recording came out essentially perfect, but there was no audience at all, making it a bit lifeless. Also, the PA speaker I sat in front of didn't have the rich tonal quality that the main PA had, so it sounded a bit hollow. The closeness to it, however, gave a near soundboard quality to the recording, close and dry. Mixing the two together allowed me to retain the crowd and tonal quality of Binko's tape, yet add to it the clarity of my recording. It also allowed me to scoop out the low end on Binko's recording where the wind rumble was while retaining the lows from my recording. Together they sound better than either one did separately.
