Lineage: ALD/SBD > D8 (listen box–from the parking lot) DAT > CDR
CDR > EAC > WAV (see editing notes) > Flac Frontend > FLAC (SBE-aligned)

Additional editing notes:
* Deleted 31 seconds of opening applause at beginning of Track 02
* Faded in applause on Track 102, faded out applause on Track 15 (with Nero)
* Re-tracked show by combining in Nero, splitting with CD Wave; as you can imagine, this isn’t an easy task for a comedy act like Carlin…I tried to separate the show by main topics discussed (also, the track names are made up to fit the material)
* Show was recorded out-of-phase; show was phase-corrected (to be “in-phase”) via Cool Edit Pro

ALD (assisted listening device) soundboard recordings are usually knocked for their “thin” sound quality (high amount of treble, not enough bass), but I don’t think that’s a real issue here at all. As such, Jim’s files have been unaltered for sound quality (i.e., no EQ performed)–if some of you prefer to have more bass in your ALD recordings, I’ll let you do your own EQ work since it then becomes a matter of personal taste. As for me, I think the show sounds great, as-is.

Jim Fiesler notes:
(regarding his ALD-SBD shows): “ALDs (fm-sbd) perfect captures in most or all cases..however somewhat lacking bass..more than regular fm..The best place to rec these shows was from the park lot..! the signal was the best there..!”
