Notes: This soundboard recording comes to us as a second generation source. Still, the quality was outstanding. The main problem with the recording was the frequent clicks and pops heard throughout. These were eliminated using both automatic and manual techniques. The tonality also needed adjustment. The bass and sub-bass components were quite deficient and needed a boost. A small correction to the upper treble region was also made. Because this was an in-studio live recording from the soundboard, the sound lacked ambience. Some have described this type of sound as “dry”. To make the recording sound a bit more “Live” a small amount of echo was added. This helps to give the auditory perception of a concert hall or theater. A few other small flaws such as track gaps and bumps were found and removed (PRRP Staff) . Taken from prrp-music.org.
