"High Voltage"
July 26, 2011
High Voltage Festival - Hyde Park, London UK
(GDT-R142)

 

GRADE : B

MASTERING NOTES :
Overall I would say this show came out a lot better than expected. With the taper using the internal mics, a lot of crowd noise was picked up. The mastering for the most part was pretty straightforward. The big problem was phasing due to people walking through and the wind. A good deal of phase correction was applied, and I was able to repair most of it. The show needed a good amount of surgery on the clappers. Throughout the show people would clap at anything. I took down the in-between song clapping overall. In song clapping was removed where appropriate. This was done at the frame level as to not cut into the music, and it took a week to complete. In the end we have a very listenable show.

COMMENTS :
In my opinion, this recording is brighter than the circulating Roland R-05 source. While there is a bit of extra crowd noise in the version, it does not suffer the phasing present during the encore, and Bob has done a masterful job painting out a lot of ambient crowd noise.

ANAMOLIES :
4:45 of Ytsejam "Sorry Man" could not be "painted" out.

Claps at beginning of Hollow Years are a bit loud but quiet down during the first verse. Then pick back up during the hard section thanks to James
wanting to see the hands.

A guy singing during the first verse in Fatal Tragedy is a bit blah.
