U2 2009-08-28 Hampden Park Glasgow
Position- about 100 - 150 ft from stage dead centre, facing Bono.
Rig- SP-PASM-2 (0 gain and knob set to 10 o'clock) -> NJB3 -> USB -> PC -> Cool edit Pro -> Amplitude and fades -> CD wav editor- FLAC level 8.
Title- "Sing for your Sanity Glasgow!"
A terriffic show, appreciated by the band and audience. This was my first time with this rig so it was taking a real chance. The only problem I had was that it was recorded a bit too quietly.
The wav file as a whole was boosted by 26.67 db with a -2 db peak, any more may have ruined the sound. There is a random frequency analysis from Trk 18 included. If you do not like your audio boosted, please dont waste your time downloading it. Nothing else was done to the files apart from the fades and the splits.
** Point of note. There was a sound failure during Walk on. This develops during MLK and then the sound drops out for 1 minute during Walk on. This was nothing to do with me, the whle stadium sound just disappeared!
The singing was fantastic and the crowd were pretty decent (it can get a bit hairy when everyone has too much alcohol, blonde girl please take note!!)

"Here mate, what's that?" asks guy 1 (points to mask guy 2 has on his head)
"Oh I dunno, sum wumin" two couples look at each other as the guy turns the mask over.
"Oh I know" says girl with guy 1
"That's the wumin that Bill Clinton rescued last week from North Korea!"
"Well whit's her face still doin here then?" says guy number 2 (good question!)
Despite my trying to enlighten them they completely ignored me. See ref to alcohol above.
This is a Ruff Snax release Number 11 (probably, it's been a while!) Our first U2! Hurrah!
