1. I captured the show on an Olympus LS-12, and I need someone to raise the low's and lower the high's and go through the whole process.

    What does it mean when some audience tapers have said they use a USB 2.0 card reader into a PC HDD?

    There's a bit of crackling and reverberation, I need someone talented to do a good job on it.

    Matthew.
  2. A card reader is a little gizmo that you connect to your computer and allows it to read the information on your camera's little card:




    Regarding the mastering... Some of us could help you IF the recording is improvable at all (it could easily not be, sadly). Can you provide a sample from the recording so we can judge and see if we could work on it?
  3. Purple Rain! What a song
    There's some wind or handling noise every now and then - that might be the easiest part to improve. Sadly there's not much to do regarding the crackling and saturation, specially when it comes from the audience around you as happens on 0:15 and 1:40. I suspect there will be some distortion during heavier songs, specially on the drums?
  4. There are no drums on that tour, only him on his lonesome with a piano.
    Do you have the contact details of expert fellows such as from taperssection?
    I'm sure something good can be done with it.
  5. I had to be super sneaky cause it was at the State Theatre, and the ushers were anal about people having even phones!

    I was one of the younger crowd there, not knowing these songs as well as the main demographic and my mission is to give it to people that weren't able to go.
  6. Ah, if the full show was on piano it might be easier to get away with it. There's definitely some room for improvement there, but be realistic and don't expect that a ☆☆½ recording becomes a stellar Ex Aud on post-production - that's plain impossible.


    my mission is to give it to people that weren't able to go.
    That's what defines us tapers in the first place Well done for recording it despite the difficulties.

    It was on Saturday night, dude.
    Prince had two shows at the State the next day, followed by an AfterPARTY.
  9. And the guy didn't repeat more than 3 or 4 songs between nights. Genius.
  10. Do you know someone, or how I can contact someone for this?
    I don't have a taperssection membership.
  11. I could try and help you myself, I am by no means a sound expert but I think I can improve it a bit.

    On the other hand, TapersSection memberships are free, and you'll be welcomed by a friendly community that will be able to help you kindly in all your audio & taping inquiries.
