Tony, spud, I screwed up royally. After a certain point in the recording (before this song), the balanced shifted hugely. Someone moved the mike? Nope, someone hit a switch (I hope not me) with put in MS matrixing. Oops. I fixed it and now things should sound mo' better. Ditto the 16 vs 24 bit problem- this was the first time I used Goldsound for mastering and there were a couple things I missed. Also fixed.

OK I didn't know what that was, so looked it up. So effectively the recorder thought it had another additional mic (to the Blumlein) and encoded based on that configuration?

I'll have to download tonight and have a listen, I assume it was something you could fix in the mastering, ie it wasn't irreversible.

I'm interested to see if I can pick a difference between the web playback (mp3) and the high quality. I suspect I won't be able to pick a difference between 16 and 24 bit (but you never know). Perhaps with headphones...

Tony.

16 and 24 bit is tough to distinguish. MP3 is a lot easier!

Yeah, it was fortunately recoverable- I just had to dematrix everything which is easy to do with a software mixer.

I've listened to the three of these, last night and just now. This last one is far superior to the last two. A very natural sound with the voice image a tiny bit left of center. Could be my computer speakers (Monsoons) slightly off balance, but I don't think so. And reasonable sounding depth, by the applause, for a living room preformance. Nice job.

Thanks! He really was sitting a bit to the left. Once I figured out my matrixing screwup, things got a lot better. I am VERY happy with these mikes and preamp; the sibilance in many studio recordings just isn't there, and the rendition of his guitar is very natural.

To me the most interesting aspect of the recording is that his voice doesn't sound as pale as it does live, compared to the guitar. Is this due to the height of the microphone placement?

Great performance, recording, and Music! For reference, Is there some background hiss or a/c noise or is it just something in my setup(listening on my backup headphones)?

Nicely done.
