Source 1: SBD-> XLR (L/R)-> Tascam DA-P1 (by dubba.com)
Source 2: Schoeps CCM 4v-> Lunatec V2-> Sound Devices 722 (by Z-Man)
Source 1: Tascam DA-P1-> coax-> RME Intelligent 24/96 PAD-> Adobe Audition 1.0-> wav
Source 2: Sound Devices 722-> USB 2.0-> AMD64 PC-> wav
Mixdown: Adobe Audition was used to sync each track, minute by minute, clean up numerous SBD flaws (glitches and dropouts).
The sources were mixed, adjusting an -8db on the AUD source, leaving the SBD at 0db.
After patching and synching, there was mild compression used to balance out the snare drum and vocal spikes.
Disc 1, Track 1 is purely SBD.
Disc 2, Track 5 has an audience patch a few minutes into the song, for about 15 seconds.
There were numerous problems with the sound this night. Dan the soundman was pulling his hair out.
Despite these issues, the show sounds pretty decent.
