Notes: Notes from the Re-Master : Obviously, this remaster project begins with the torrented flac files from Dan Lampinski's show. It is interesting that this recording captures part of the explanation for the delay from Gabriel which is not present on the Joe Maloney tape. Both tapers then started their recordings of the show at approximately the same time, halfway through the Rael Introduction. Maloney's tape starts about two seconds earlier that Lampinski's so those two seconds were added to Lampinski's recording to make it more complete. The tape flips mentioned above occurred with uncanny synchronicity between the two tapers, leading to the initial (incorrect) assumption that the two were the same recording. Tape flips were repaired here so that the full, complete show is available.
The first significant step in the remastering was the speed correction. PRRP has remastered other Lampinski recordings and, despite their outstanding quality, they often run too slow or too fast. Here again, this recording was off speed and that was easily corrected. Tonality was re-balanced given the acoustic characteristics of the venue and the location of the taper. Clicks and pops were found and repaired easily. A number of points find undesirable noises coming from the synthesizer on stage. Gabriel references these at least once during the monologue but they can be heard intermittently during 'Lilywhite Lilith', 'The Waiting Room' and 'The Supernatural Anaesthetist'. These were not altered because they were not tape flaws. Dynamic adjustments were made to enhance the recording and repair the effects of auto-record circuitry. Re-tracking was done using standard references, splitting the show just before the second Rael story, but without fadeout for a seamless listening experience. -PRRP Staff-.
