Bill Koucky contacted me about doing a matrix of the 12-27-82, and since
he had an uncirculating AUD copy of this night (12-28-82), I decided to
do this one as well so as to have a pair of volumes (18a and 18b).
This show is much different from the previous night, so the two together
give a nice snapshot of the band during their 5 night '82 New Year's run
at what later would become the Kaiser.
The first set feature's a tasty song selection with 1 of 7 On The Road
Again's of '82 (only 2 more were played subsequently) that segues into
only the 9th ever Touch Of Grey (midset!). The LSD ending of set 1
foreshadows a powerful 2nd set which closes with a stunning Morning Dew
followed by a fitting double encore. This show is a fan favorite for '82.
The Miller PCM SBD is a vast improvement over the previous night's SBD,
yet the FOB AUD isn't nearly as good, thus this matrix is heavier in
the SBD than the 27th.
Thanks to whomever for recording the AUD, and to Bill Koucky and
Chris Ladner for transferring, encoding and remastering it.
Thanks to Charlie Miller for the killer PCM SBD.
Special thanks to Bill Koucky for motivating me to matrix both nights.
Artwork by Zman - thanx!
The SBD was relatively close in pitch so I left it as is and
pitched the AUd down about 30 to 40 cents for set 1; and for set 2
8 to 12 cents prior to Space; post Space the AUD was pitched down about
12 to 22 cents, except for Baby Blue which is from a different source,
since it was played 10 mins. after the lights had come on
(taper's scramble) and had to be pitched up about 11 to 13 cents.
Because of the speed fluctuation within a given source, multiple edits
were performed to keep the sources synched. Since the SBD was my
master pitch and time ref, the AUD was synched to the SBD (too many
edits to list).
- Sonic Quality/Matrix ratio
The SBD was left as is, but the AUD had some hiss and needed some mild
EQ (-2db shelf at 3kHz). I also applied (very sparingly) Waves L2
(limiter) to the master 2 buss to keep things contained, the levels
rarely hitting zero, thus the limiting is quite scarce. All I was trying
to do here is to add some dimension to the SBD by using the ambience of
the AUD. The result is a lively but clear recording, hopefully close to
how it sounded at the show. If I had to guess the SBD/AUD ratio would be
somewhere between 3:1 and 2:1.
The following are places where the SBD and AUD had splices, holes or
incomplete coverage in reference to the final matrix timeline.

d3t05 (6:38 - 6:49) - missing (crowd)
d3t06 (0:00 - 0:03) - missing
Full coverage is achieved (thanks to the PCM SBD source).
The only music missing is from the AUD source:
the beginning of Women and over 5 mins of Drums.
Show information is embedded within the header of each flac file.
It will display on any player capable of directly playing flac files.
If converted to wav during processing, all tags will be stripped,
however audio data will remain unaffected.
If you must transcode to a lossy format, do so directly Flac > Lossy.
Use ffp to validate audio integrity.
Md5 values will change if tagging is altered.
