Some minor wind noise, mostly mitigated by iZotope's "de-wind" function, but there is some phasing due to the wind.
This was the conclusion of the 2018 Fair experience, and it was a near sold-out (capacity 4K) show, as the floor (1200) was sold out in mid June, and the lawn was quite full.
Since the floor was sold out, and the weather was rather crappy (sprinkles and occasional wind) I forsook my normal taping location (DFC, around rows P-Q) and stood right along the left side of the soundboard on the front of the lawn, as the board had 'tent walls' which mitagated the wind from the east rather nicely. The sound suffered a little bit, comparatively speaking.
And Three Dog Night put on a pretty solid show...the only 'down time' was this horrid song about praying for the children, done acapella, sans instrumentation right before "Jeremiah The Bullfrog"...it nearly sucked the air out of the venue.
But other than that, the crowd lapped up their performance, and sang along with all the hits.
Post-show, I had a 300 mile drive in the pouring rain back home, but all-in-all, it was yet another great time.
THANKS be to Dennis for yet slapping together another batch of my garbage for your earholes.
And just take those "FUCK OFF HAGAR"'s, and present them however you deem necessary.
Tomorrow: THE MAGPIE SALUTE!!!
