Bits of applause and cheers now and then, but mostly just between songs. Prominent venue reverb due to the omni characteristics of the mics (see below). Very (VERY) low noise and distortion, however. Mastered in a slight 'smiley face' fashion, i.e. good bass and detailed treble, the main reason being the troublesome contents of the mid frequencies. So perhaps not the preferred version for the purists... Comments: Mindblowingly great show. That goosebump note in Snowy's ABITW2 solo just never ends. Click- and backing tracks discussions aside, this is one helluva performance. Mastering notes: EQ'd to balance microphone characteristics and venue acoustics. Noise reduction was NOT used. NO compression or limiting was applied. WAVES MaxxBass was used carefully to address the flabbiness of the bass frequencies by reconstructing a small amount of the harmonics accordingly. Levels were adjusted manually throughout the entire recording, e.g. reduced slightly during crowd noise inbetween songs. Band introduction was intentionally removed. Mic notes: This is my first bootleg recording ever, so I thought I'd share some lessons learned. It was recorded with custom built A/B stereo electret microphones using Linkwitz modified Panasonic WM61A omnidirectional capsules attached to either side of a baseball cap turned backwards, approximately in the temples area. "A/B stereo" means that the mics are separated by a certain distance. Consequently, the stereo image information is encoded and subsequently deducted by the ears primarily by the time differences between the channels, i.e. a sound coming from the right side hits the right mic a certain amount of time before the left mic, which also gets a certain coloration of the sound due to the fact that the head is partially blocking the path of the sound wave for the left mic. This is basically the way our ears work to locate sounds and produce a sonic perception of the space we're in. This type of mic technique is generally percieved as highly suitable for producing acoustically accurate recordings that create an illusion of "being there", especially when played back through headphones. The drawback to using omni mics (you knew there was one, didn't you?) as opposed to using directional mics is that the balance between the actual sound source and the reflecting sound waves, bouncing off the walls of the venue, tips in favour of the reflections. The recording becomes more "reverby", or "spacey". This time, I chose the omnidirectional capsules only because of their relatively low price and acclaimed sonic qualities (after the Linkwitz modification), not for the pickup pattern per se. They're excellent in all aspects for doing what they do, but I will however most likely try to build a set of high quality directional mics for my next recording. Reverberation is easy to add in post production in case the recording should turn out too dry, but virtually impossible to eradicate if too excessive in the first place. Of course, it also depends on the character of the reverberation, which is a result of the size and shape of the concert venue, which in this case was a text book example of the worst case scenario: a sphere... For the record, the most suitable venue shape would be that of a shoe box.
