Ran the V3 hot to get best sound possible out of the music. As a
result, the audience applause clips. Is it me, or does the V3 clip
fairly gracefully? Doesn't sound nearly as nasty as clipping I've
had on other tapes I've made. Anyway, compressed the applause 10:1
above -9dB in post to reduce the shock of the overpowering applause at
the end of each song. Applied various compression to reduce applause
during playing, but only down to the level of the music - no music
compressed. Unedited master available if anyone wants it.
