  • This recording, like the other Gatto-Jaeger recordings of this run, has excellent high-end energy, but was lacking a bit in the lower frequencies. The recorder was paused between most non-sequential songs creating abrupt tansitions, most noticable in the first set. The second set contained several sonic anomalies scattered throughout. Several songs were not ideally tracked with a couple of songs in the third set combined into one track. I asked Dan if he could boost the base without affecting the mid-range and high-end and clean up the transitions and anomalies. Dan's Change Log: 101- OK 102- Cross-faded about 2 seconds 103- Cross-faded about 3 seconds 104- Cross faded about 2 seconds; Quasi-fadeout (-12.42dB) for track 4 105- cross-fade to track 6 106- Trimmed about 1/4 sec. of silence from end 107- Trimmed 1/4 sec. of silence from end 107; crossfaded 3 secs 108- faded out 107 and let 108 start as it was because music was already cut for beginning of track 108 109- clapping at first note of Dire Wolf so faded out HHTH applause for about 3 sec then a fast fade in to DW. 110- Did a slightly faster fadeout 201- faded in; anomaly at 5:28 Interpolated so it's not noticeable now. 202- anomalies at 8:02 & 8:10 (8:02 has a funny sound; fixed the tape start, but not the odd sound; fixed by cutting out about 1/4 second and interpolating the two pieces; 8:10 fixed the same way) 203- OK 204- anomalies at 5:54, 6:16, 6:29, & 6:52 Interpolated 205- anomalies at 8:55 & 9:04 (crossfaded the first, cut the second out) 206- anomalies at 7:55, 8:51 & 9:03 interpolated 207- OK 208- OK 209- abrupt ending faded out 301- There were two level changes, and a gradual increase in level, so I added 2dB to the second change, 4 dB to the first change, and then added a linear increase from 3 to 0dB for the first few seconds. Still starts abruptly, but the music sounds about right after it starts. 302/303- blank space cut out; cut to two tracks 304- Crossfade 305- OK 306- anomaly or cut at 8:39 looks like digi-mess from the transfer. Blocky spots and blank spaces. Only option was to cut it out or paste over from another spot. About 1 second removed. 307/308- Split into 2 tracks 309- Ok 310- OK 311- Redid fade 312- faded in; cut a small section of blank space at the end of song. Tagging notes: Show information is embedded within the header of each flac file. It will display on any player capable of directly playing flac files. If converted to wav during processing, all tags will be stripped, however audio data will remain unaffected. If you must transcode to a lossy format, do so directly Flac > Lossy. Use ffp to validate audio integrity. Md5 values will change if tagging is altered. B. Proctor 5-18-12

  • Nak 700's > Sony D-5 > AMC; Recorded Dead front center loge by Keith Gatto & Pete Jaeger; AMC > DAT > CDR > EAC > FLac (EAC > Flac by Michael Turi); Equalization: Used a multifilter with the following order: 20-band EQ with linear increases from 0-500 Hz. One subharmonic synthesizer set at 125 Hz. Two expanders (dynamic noise in expander mode) to increase the dynamic range. May, 2012-Dan McDonald
