Morrissey 2014-05-07 San Jose Civic 3 Source Matrix


The If
Tl;dr I think this is an upgrade you'll enjoy:

City National Civic Auditorium
San Jose, CA

This is a 3 source matrix from the following sources:

Source: Tascam DR-100 MKII (Internal Mics)
Lineage: USB Transfer to Mac > Audacity 2.0.2 (split tracks and export as .wav) > ImToo Audio Convert Pro 6.4 (convert to FLAC)
Recorded from section 215, seat 1.

Source: Sony PCM-M1 + Sony ECM-77b (x2)
Transfer: DAT Master --> Sony PCM-M1 --> Sony PCM-D100 --> Audacity --> FLAC 8
No EQ or normalization. Ran a high pass filter (less boomy) and created tracks/labels in Audacity.
Recorded from the floor, center stage about 20 yards back.
Length: 01:32:43

Source: Schoeps CCM4s > Tinybox > Sony PCM-M10 16/44
Mastering (BLG): Adobe Audition > Izotope Ozone 5 > WavePad > xACT > FLAC
Taper: Not Me
Total Time: 90:30

All mixing was done in Audacity 2.0.2. There are a number of missing sections, but all either occur between songs or during the encore break so no music is missing. I’ve not done much processing of the recordings other than fade the cuts in and out to make the effect less noticeable. Most fades occur over a timeframe of 5 seconds. For mixing, the sailnit and muchmusic sources were set to -4 dB and the blg source was set to -5 dB.

Thanks to !Viva Hate! at and mammaof3 at for their help with this release.

The effort appears most worth it.
Much fresher sound and greater depth.
