Soon=========================TECHNICAL NOTESRecorded live at 013, Tilburg, The Netherlandsdate: 24 march 2007.Recorded on iRiver H340 using Rockbox, build 060820.Recording format: 44.1 Khz WAVMicrophone: Sony ECM CS10 stereoSound enhancement with Soundforge 7.0 / Adobe Audition 2.0Sound editing with CD Wave editorFlacs created with FLAC frontend 1.7.1 (level 7)I was sitting a little left to the stage, about 10 meters away from the PA.Mike hight at about 1,20 meters.Gain was set at auto correction (live)Minor clipping occured as a result of loud applause next to me.MASTERING PROCESI started out with some volume corrections, including clipping & peaking correction. The next step was to eliminate the clippings that occured from loud claps made by the person(s) sitting next to me.Then I slightly boosted the passages where talking occured. The microphone I used did pick up the bass, but it was too low. The recording sounded metallic. So in a few steps I gave some boost to the lower freqencies. Around 60Hz there was a hum, so I cut the frequency a bit there. Then I corrected the stereo panning and the overall volume. Finally I evened out the sound to produce a listenable recording with not too much hard or low passages, but keeping the dynamics of the recording in tact.The complete file was split in two discs and tracks were split at sector boundaries. Finally I made the FLAC's, that I tagged for convienent playback on compatible systems.THE CONCERTThis was a special set, the last one of Jons workshops in which the audiencecould ask questions about his songs. A lot of questions were asked. And two youngguitarists asked Jon to join him on stage and perform with him. He invited them and that was really nice. The title of this show is derived from one of his stories in which he tells about pills he has been given to deal with a flu epidemic. They give him the feeling thathe is on magic mushrooms. Hence the title.The audience was nice and the all enhjoyed Jon talking and joking. Although he forgotthe words or chords at some points in the show: that didn't matter. Blame it on themagic mushrooms...erhm pills.MusiciansJon Anderson - Guitar - Piano - VoiceJaap ?? - Guitar on 'And you and I'Pieter de Jongh - Guitar on 'Heart of the sunrise'
