Klaus Schulze
Kšln, Stadthalle Mulheim
23rd September 1977


Cassette master --> Dat tape (32khz/lp) --> Edirol UA-3D --> Power Mac G4 --> Bias Peak/Roxio Jam --> xACT --> Flac (Level 8)

The recording has been very slightly and (i hope) non invasively tweaked. I used two filters: a very small quantity of dehiss, and a little bit of enhancement for the stereo image. A handful of clicks were also removed.

The main manipulation is of a different sort, as I decided to leave out all of the applause: its level was far too loud and caused distortion. And since there were only two bursts which took place without covering more than half a random note, I preferred it this way. My opinion is that it doesn't harm the live feeling at all...!

Finally, besides said applause, the original recording sounded cut up in a couple of places: thus I tried and cross-faded a couple of these to track the record 'properly' (ie: to my taste!) splitting what might have been longer passages into coherent themes/pieces.
Though there's a few themes emerging here and there from known works, track naming is an exercise better left to the most discerning Schulze collectors. ;-)

Hope you'll enjoy it!
