Mariah Carey’s Christmas Show
Beacon Theatre New York City, NY
15 December 20915

This set was recorded full econo-mode, straight to my new Edirol R-05s built in mics. Then copied from SD card to my Mac and cut into tracks, volume boosted and exported to FLAC with Amadeus Pro 2. Fingerprints created with xACT; Torrent file ands upload facilitated with Transmit.

I am providing the highest quality file I have at 24/48 audio. Re-convert as you need for CDs or other uses but please do not trade other then original files. (as if I could stop you) If you do not like the way I record or the equipment I use, wait for another upload.

It’s Christmastime and I thought the wife might enjoy this for her birthday and I was not wrong. As for the recording, it’s pretty good. Lots of dynamic range in this show. Soft holiday songs and then a christmas rave up. Kids singing while Mariah changes clothes and other BS. Plenty of kids and try delivers in the crowd. Someone clearly loves Mariah. In some ways I think it adds to the tape. There is definitely some fun stuff to hear here.

Mariah Carey - vocals
a bunch of kids dancing and singing
and drums, bass, two keyboards, and a dude named Big Jim on piano who was running the show.

I hope you Enjoy!

PSS: For the inevitable requests;
I’m really sorry but I can’t offer other bit depths. There is only so much time in the day and I love to contribute music to this venue and hope that folks enjoy these shows too. So I put to the best of what I have and hope users will take a little effort to get the output files they need. It should be a one step process, I know it is with the Mac based software recommended below. I hope it is just as easy with the windows options.

On the Mac I think XLD is great; you give it a batch of files and it will out put pretty much what ever you need and will easily convert these 24bit flacs to 16bit AIFFs you can burn to CD. It will also allow you to clean up the metadata if you roll that way. Right click to apply to batch. While definitely worth a donation it is totally free, check it out.

For windows, I would love to hear more current suggestions but I have always heard great things about Traders Little Helper. But I do not use it nor am I 100% sure that it will take a 24bit flac and give your a 16bit wav in one motion. I have also heard good things about I also had recommended as a straight bit conversion for free that will take what I gave and give you swell CD quality. GO!

As with all of this windows stuff all the same caveats apply - I don’t use it and have not tried it. Still I would continue to welcome any current confirmation or commentary to help make this note more helpful.
