Mastering of this source:
This recording had some unique issues.
There was a Crackling thoughout the ENTIRE recording, and some minor clipping.
Possibley do to some other nearby electronic device.. ??
There are also one or two very breif signal fades.
A lot of TLC was done to remove the 'Crackle' without too much noticable distortion of the recording.
I opted NOT to do any noise reduction or sound removal on this, as there was already a lot of processing done to this.
This recording found it's way to me from a long time buddy/collector via a portable HD.
The HD contains a good 50-75 shows from Wolf Trap from about 2010 - 2013
I have found NONE of these to be in circulation, nor have I found many to have been recorded via any other source.
So I would regard these as very unique.
I can conclude that almost all of these recordings (if not all) were recorded via ALD.
They are all Mono, and many of the recordings have various stages of Clipping.
It's not clear if the clipping is only in the copies I received or are on the original files (which I had no access to)
Without overly enhancing or destroying the recordings, I have done the best I could to master them and put them out.
I would welcome any input on the history of these recordings or anything else that someone could enlighten me on their origin.
