Notes from the original uploader:

– Beginning of Here Comes Sunshine patched from AUD
– Light Pops in Here Comes Sunshine on the AUD. There was a very loud one in the right channel at 1:34. I fixed this by cutting out the right channel and pasting it with the left. There is still a light pop but it is much better. Also in the AUD at 1:36 was a very loud clap in the right channel again I cut out the right channel and replaced it with the left.
– Glitch between 4:37 – 4:38 of Matilda
– Splice in Matilda from 5:08 – 5:25
– splice in Matilda from 9:11 – 9:24
– sound of Matlida seems to degrade after the first splice
– Slight Pop at 3:35 and 3:52 of Drums
– Last 2 minutes of Morning Dew spliced in from AUD starting at 8:50
– Johnny B. Goode was missing on SBD, AUD source

When this source was first circulated, the flac files contained
REPLAYGAIN tags. The wav files compressed inside the flac files are
fine, but if you listen to the flac files themselves using a player
like WinAMP, these tags cause all the tracks to be played at the same
volume. That’s not good for concerts where some tracks are supposed to
be louder than others.

There’s a new version of this source available. It has exactly the
same wav files; it’s just the flac wrapper that’s different, the
wrapper doesn’t have REPLAYGAIN set anymore. The new version has the
same ffp file (since the wav’s are the same), but a new md5 file
(since the flac files are different). The md5 file for the old source
is called “orig-flac-replaygain-md5”; the md5 file for the good new
source is called “flac-md5”. If you have a source for this that
matches the ffp, you can create the new source by unflac’ing the old
source and then recompressing at flac level 8 using the flac command
line tool or the flac frontend.

From now on, only the new version of the source should be circulated.

Patch source – AUD(Schoeps MK4’s)>DAT>CDR>WAV>SHNv3
Thanks to Yossarian Hunter for getting the AUD to me.

This source was already seamless; however, it’s about a quarter tone
high and the AUD patches, although pretty well synched up with the SBD
source, were not pitch adjusted. Since the AUD is all digital and
there’s at least one C gen in the SBD, I adujted its pitch down to the
AUD, stretching it to 102.4%. I then redid the patches using the AUD
source from archive (shnid 10385) and crossfaded them with the SBD.
