Taper's comments :
Ok then here is my Adelaide 06 Vertigo recording.

I have had literally hundreds of requests for this. And for melb 19th. The requests have been absolutely overwhelming.

I have not traded this with anyone. The only reason it is delayed is due to trying to find the time to get it transferred, split up, flac'd, tracks labelled, etc. Its quite a job....and ive moved both my house and business recently (both into bigger locations!) and its been crazy.

This recording is not as good as my (infamous) Melb 18th. Theres a few reasons why.

It was recorded with the same equipment. The difference in quality is solely due to my position, namely being in front of the main stacks. The main Vertigo speaker stacks are quite crap sounding...scooped with their frequency, lots of top end and mud bass but not much else. They are also not very loud. 20m directly in front of left-hand main speaker stack - against circle fence.

Lineage: OKMII Mics & CUSTOM Preamp WITH TOP-END FILTERS into Sony M1 DAT Recorder > Transferred using Sony DTC-60ES DAT Deck into SPDIF Dig in of Echo Mia > Sound Forge > Some Light Waves L2 Limiting > Spliced using CD Architect > Flac

They are heavily filtered to avoid microphone feedback from Bono as he walks out and about directly in front of them, and the speaker level is quiet as Joe tries to reduce stadium reflections. So the result is a less flat-sounding recording, with more audience noise. Still..it is OK overall. I wish now that i had walked around and gone to the same spot as Melbourne 18th...but then i would have seen nothing.

I was also disappointed that people did not believe that my Melbourne 18th recording was lossless. This recording is also lossless. I have a dual-degree in electronics and sound engineering and have modified the preamp for my OKMII mics so that it rolls off the top end to make it smoother. I also use 3 hour DAT tapes on 44.1k which I brought a few years ago that were intended for data. So i am not using a DAT LP mode, i do not have the 2 hour DAT limit, this recording has never seen mp3. And i hope it never does. I hope this is the first and last i have to say about it this time.
