Majority of this recording is a matrix of the "Animated" bootleg with an audience recording of unknown lineage.
From approximately 2 minutes into Force Ten, the remainder of the encore is from AppleJack Studio's DVDR release "A Farewell to the Gardens".

Many years ago, I purchased the silver pressed "Animated" from someone (I think I paid $40 for it) and thought that it was a great soundboard recording, although it was incomplete and in mono. As my collection grew, I was listening to more and more audience recordings and found that a good audience recording sometimes is a much better listen in comparison to a SBD. For example, the Rush Milwaukee '84 audience recording is far better than the Landover '84 SBD. IMHO however, there are some phenomenal Rush SBDs in circulation, most notably the Oakland '92, Madison '94 and Mansfield '97. So far, not too many audience recordings can achieve what these 3 SBDs deliver in terms of recording quality.

So after some thought, I decided to matrix "Animated" with the audience recording source I had to see what the results may be.

Although I didn't have too many difficulties with the matrix process, I did have to cut the AUD1 source into about 60 sections in CoolEditPro's Multitrack editor. I began to play with different mixing percentages in hopes to obtain the right of amount of ambiance from the audience source and the clarity of the SBD. Finally, I landed on a mix that I liked with the AUD1 source at -7.7dB from 0dB and the SBD remained at 0dB. This mix sounded the best to my ears.

Unfortunately, the AUD1 source cuts out about 2 minutes into "Force Ten". This is where I mixed in the AUD2 source, which is from a 1st gen video soundtrack. Again, I used CEP's multi-track form to matrix the 2 sources. AUD2 was kept at 0dB.

Prior to final mixdown, some EQ adjustments were made to SBD (decrease HF), AUD1 (decrease HF) and AUD2 (increase HF and LF). Upon the final mixdown of the matrix, several amplitude adjustments were made to even out the recording as best as I could; and the final wave was normalized to 0dB.

Please do not convert to MP3 or other lossy formats and TRADE FREELY.
