Flickering Flame 7:21 Comments and Reviews: Production Notes: I needed an audio source to replace the garbled up soundtrack on a dvd production. The two sources I used were A Collection Of Great War Songs & a DAT to CDR of Schoeps k4v's > kc5 > cmc6 > vms5u > sony-tcd8 @ 48Khzs via Tascam DA20mkII > Rme96/8. After hearing each source, I wasn't expecting a lot. The aCoGWS production was very bright and lacked bass to a significant degree. It also had some deletions in the middle of songs making for some strange sounding vocal lines. The second source had a lot of bass and absolutely no high end at all with a diminished midrange clarity, very dull. I wouldn't have rated either source better than VG+/EX-, and I'm known to be forgiving on ratings. That left me with the alternative of matrixing the two sources which didn't look to be very promising. Wow, was I ever wrong! I would never have guessed that the resulting matrix was nearly perfect. Almost nothing else had to be done. The bass is fantastic and solid without making my subwoofers unnaturally jump off the floor. The highend is great and the midgrange is greatly improved. There are only a few drawbacks. Some of Roger's quieter vocals are buried in the mix, but when he sings strongly, there are no issues. The segements of missing music from the RoIO release of aCoGWS will sounding like channel phase drop outs when only the Schoeps source is playing. This not only gives an idea of what was missing from aCoGWS, but it also shows what the matrix did for the Schoeps source. Each of these drop outs is less than a second and there are only 8 of them in the entire 2.5hr show. This show can be safely played loud; in fact, I highly recommend it be played loud to fully appreciate the depth of the recording. A special thanks go out to Anthony for trading me the two sources used for this recording. This production is for free trade and blank media trade only. Please do not buy, sell, or distribute for profit. Help keep the spririt of trading alive and well. (January 2004)
