Recording info: Tascam DR-22WL (24-96) > file transfer > Adobe Audition (slight EQ/dynamic adjustment*, downsampling) > CDWave (tracking) > Traders' Little Helper (flac)
* There are three places where I've done some surgical work on isolated volume issues.
> Near the beginning of track 11 (I Don't Remember), there's that bit of feedback, which was... a *lot* louder in person. I wrangled it down to a less apocalyptic volume.
> During track 12, which is all chatter, Jerry's mic wasn't hot when he started talking, but through the space-age magic of 24-bit depth recording and crazy low self-noise, I was able to excavate his voice and lift it up to an audible level for those first few crucial words, "You know it's not easy - how many Gabriel fans are there?" There was some other weirdness going on with mics and feedback in the few seconds before that, so it's still a tad bumpy.
> After Mother Stands for Comfort ends, there was some fussiness with mics again as Happy made some comments. So I excavated again. A bit bumpy still, but at least now Happy is clearly audible.
None of these little adjustments affect any of the music.
The remainder of the "production" I did was a bit of EQ to bring the high end up just a touch, around 3 dB at 2K and above, and very gentle compression + normalization to make good use of the headroom so you can listen to this recording in your car without having to futz with your player's volume and then have Live Rust make your neighbors bleed when it inevitably rocks up next in the rotation.
This is the CD-ready 16-44 version, and is the full Security Project show. A full-quality 24-96 version has also been uploaded.
