Notes:

This release comes complete with a scanned in image of the ticket stub, seating chart, and a piece of Chick Corea SPAM I picked up at the show. While at the concert, I noticed a bit of boominess in the lower frequency range. It turns out there's a resonant frequency near 80Hz, about an octave wide. Unlike an equalizer which applies a mandatory attenuation of frequencies, I applied a band-wise compressor to attenuate frequencies from 50-200 Hz, and only when they exceeded -30db. The compression was very mild @ 1.5:1. This removes the boominess without removing any of the content or altering the sound spectrum of the concert
(unlike an equalizer). Otherwise, the show is mostly perfect. Other than the occasional microphone muffling, the recording is exceptional. Using iZotope RX-Advanced, I was able to remove most of the mic muffling.


Enjoy !!!
