  1. NEW ORDER - 1982-12-08 - Wellington Victoria University, N.Z. [2nd gen. Soundboard]

    New Order
    Victoria University,
    Wellington, New Zealand
    December 8th, 1982
    2nd generation soundboard recording

    A very good (close to excellent) quality soundboard recording, sourced from a 2nd generation cassette copy of a soundboard recording. The vocals are a bit lower in the mix than other New Order mixing desk recordings I have from around this period, and also the mix has what some might call a bass 'hump', but otherwise it sounds great to me. Note also that, because there was some noticeable hiss on the original tape (unless it was played back with the original Dolby C - which unfortunately would have made it sound unnaturally compressed in the case of this particular brand of cassette), the hiss has been substantially reduced by me using a gradated (i.e. variable) noise reduction in CoolEdit Pro before originally being transferred to CD-R by me many years ago. No other modifications (other than track splitting) were made to the original sound of the captured tape, either at the time, or later.

    Lineage :-

    Traded 2nd generation Maxell XLII (type II) cassette tape -> Aiwa ADF770 3-head dual capstan cassette deck -> Creative SB soundcard -> CoolEdit pro 2.1 -> WAV -> CD-R -> EAC -> WAV -> TLH -> FLAC 8 & .ffp

  2. All I can say about this, as in being the original uploader of this on DIME (chrispoor), how can another uploader of a totally dire (probably not even mixing desk sourced) of an alternate source of this, even claim that my version is a modification of his? (as in I didn't process or "do a lot of work" of ANYTHING off your completely SHITE sounding version myself of this show, thank you!) F**kin' bizarre, IMO. But if any wants to hear the unprocessed version (i.e. no hiss/noise reduction) of the 2nd (or possibly 3rd generation) completely differently sourced soundboard (quite hissy originally) recording of my version of this that I still have it (for now) on cassette, so then I could do maybe that, if any interest is shown for it ...
