To burn the files in the correct sequence, burn d2t08 – d2t13 as disc 4.
The Bertha filler (d2t13) is abrutly cut about half way through. I did not
number or tag it as I can not imagine anyone wanting to include it. Why it
circulates is beyond me.

Note: Bert Slany, 07/23/2006

–All tracks suffered from speed/pitch slowness to different
degrees:

–disc 1: an average 1.8% slow
–disc 2: also approx 1.8% slow
–disc 3: an average 2.3% slow
–disc 4: an average 3.5% slow

–I have no good explanation for why the speed/pitch offset
varies between individual discs, but it does. (were these
different DAT tapes, i.e. A/D transfers done with different
hardware or at different points in time possibly by different
individuals?)

–both patch sources are also affected by a speed/pitch offset,
but to so small a degree that I did not try to fix it.

–logic as well as physics dictate that in the analog realm speed
and pitch mostlikely vary together to proportional degrees.
Anything else is the absolute exception. I.e. in this case a
tape ran slow somewhere in the analog part of the lineage and
thus yielded a low _and_ slow collection of tracks (I doubt the
direct 16 track -> DAT). This can also be heard by the keen
ear in the original transfer as a _speed_ difference between
the patch sources and the 16 track source. In the analog realm
one would therefore fix the the pitch of the show by e.g.
letting the mixdown tape run faster, affecting both speed
_and_ pitch. There are tools in almost every digital audio
processing software to achieve just that in the digital realm.
If you have grave concerns and don’t follow the logic of this
argument, you might want to consider preparing another fixed
source.

–the lineage of the show is updated as follows:

flac -> Adobe Audition 1.5 -> pitch/speed correction* ->
flac -> TraLiHe -> sbe’s fixed

*To fix the slow pitch/speed of this show I loaded the
individual tracks into Adobe Audition. I then used the
following tool to work on the pitch/speed:
“Effects” -> “Time/Pitch” -> “Stretch” -> “Constant Stretch” ->
“Stretching Mode” set to”Resample (preserves neither [pitch
nor tempo]) -> “Compress” to “Ratio” of choice -> “OK”

–To ascertain the correct “ratio” I used a six string tuned to
concert pitch A=440 Hz and “tuned the song” until I felt I had
the correct pitch. I only ever used
_one_ transformation step for tuning to the correct pitch/speed.
The result is an even nicer sounding show.

–If one were so inclined, one could burn this show to three
discs instead of four:

–1st disc: d1t01-13 + d2t01
–2nd disc: d2t02-06 + d3t01-02
–3d disc: d3t03-08 + d4

–Thanks to Charlie Miller for supplying us with this beauty of
a recording. Lots of dynamics and transparency galore in this
one!! Thank you Thank you Thank you!!!!!
