DC8 Forensics for editing and modification

This is the soundboard/PA version developed by dusborne and droncit,
incorporating some audience material in blank portions.
Contacts: droncit@yahoo.com

–Set 1–
t1 – Bill Graham introduction
t2 – He Was a Friend of Mine
t3 – Cryptical Envelopment ->
t4 – Drums ->
t5 – The Other One ->
t6 – Cryptical reprise
t7 – Doin That Rag
t8 – Me & My Uncle

notes:
– This reel was in droncit’s collection for about 40 years.
– For the reel, we added harmonics, minor eq adjustment, and used light noise reduction.
– For the audience files we used the Reel as a source and a spectral difference filter to match the overall sound of the audience to the reel.
– The opening notes to cryptical sound like there are digital artifacts, but that’s the way it sounds on the straight transfer.
– We think it is a PA tape, not a soundboard, as it appears to be mono.
– We modified it to align better with the l-r distribution on the audience tape.
– This version was developed as part of the syncing process for the matrix.
– The Introduction is noticeably louder than it is on the audience tape so that it can be heard better. Because it comes from the audience tape, the sound is muffled and boomy, but it’s a fun part of the show so we included it this way.
– Final edits to the PA and MTX files were done separately, so they do not match exactly. There is still noise evident.

Matrix Info:

This is a matrix recording using two sources, a soundboard/PA from droncit’s tape collection,
obtained in the early 1970s via a trade, and an audience recording (SHNID 00073)

comment from original audience:
This is not a sbd. It was made with a stereo sony mic on the front of the stage in front of
the keyboards…
That is why TC is front and center and the vocals are low in the mix.

– For the sbd reel, we added harmonics, minor eq adjustment, and used light noise reduction.

match the overall sound of the audience to the reel.

  1. “The Other One” is the highlight here – a great, smokin’ ’69 version. The sound on my copy is far from perfect, so I am looking forward to this upgrade. Once again, thanks for sharing Mat!

  5. Ahhhh, more 69 Dead – it just doesn’t get any better. Thank you very much. As Nikos says a smoking Other One (Cryptical reprise ain’t too bad either).
