Willie Nelson + Family
Outlaw Festival @ SPAC (Saratoga Performing Arts Center, Saratoga Springs, NY)
23 September 2018

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, cut the bass a bit with Wave Pad, then cut to tracks 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.

Willie is always amazing, bless him. This was truly a Family band with Micah on drum and Lukas on guitar and "little sister" Bobbie on piano, as always. Paul English was there too, playing hand drums and percussion and Mickey was blowing his amazing harp and finally the new bass player, Kevin.

I hope you Enjoy!

PS: Please Don't Sell This

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. http://tmkk.undo.jp/xld/index_e.html

For windows, I would love to hear more current suggestions but I have always heard great things about Traders Little Helper. http://tlh.easytree.org/ 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 http://www.foobar2000.org/ I also had http://www.voxengo.com/product/r8brain/ 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.
