flac files from download -> Magix Music Cleaning Lab (remaster/re-edit) -> FLAC (44,1 kHz, 16 Bit, Stereo)
The original recording had the following flaws:
– sound of first half different from 2nd half (1st half with lower frequencies, 2nd half slightly overmodulated and hissy)
– some gaps between songs
– some cuts in songs, sometimes with new start from the same position
– track starts at wrong positions
– varying sound levels
These corrections were made:
– sound of 1st half: correction to slightly higher frequencies
– sound of 2nd half: correction to slightly lower frequencies
– gaps removed, double starts removed
– tracks newly edited
– sound levels adjusted
The track no. 7, Sense Of Doubt, it is only a fragment (53 seconds long).
Despite of all flaws and after the made corrections this is still a very listenable show and it is amongst the better ones of that tour.
