Taper notes:

A flawless performance by the Chief and his High Flying Birds!

I arrived late at the venue. Opening act was playing the last song of their set. I hardly had time to make sure the mix was mono so I could stand front of stacks and keep a great balance between vocals and instruments.

I expected this 6500 capacity hall to be a boomy sounding venue, so I set the bass roll-off filter of my battery box @ 69Hz for the omnis source (DPA's). But bass ended up to be so low in the mix (probably to avoid that boomy effect) that I had to drastically increase it in post. Even for the cards source (MM-HLSC-1's).

I still think this is one of my best sounding tape to date (both sources). Audience noise kept to the minimum.
