Return to Forever May 29, 2008 Austin, TX (First Show of 2008 Tour)



Dimeadozen Torrent Posting:

First concert of the RTF 2008 tour was at the Paramount Theater in Austin, TX and I was there! As was my R09. :-)

Warning: I was nervous taping so I didn't check the levels and the first half was quite hot. I used EQ to make it more listenable and it is tolerable but it is not great quality. I reduced the levels for the second half and it was mostly acoustic so the second half turned out quite well. If you plan to tape one of their shows, I suggest keeping your levels very low because there is quite a dynamic range and the bass notes in particular can easily overload your recorders preamp. I will be posting samples shortly.


Edirol R09 using built-in mics -> Sound Forge -> FLAC w/align on sector boundaries.
