Welcome to the new BlahBlahCafe!

A new server, a new environment. Updated and all.

As with every migration, some things might have been lost in translation (at least, that's my experience in software development). The main problem is logging in into the boards. These could be caused by several reasons:

- Your browser cache & cookies need to be cleared because we moved to a new server. If you get the error message whilst logging: "The submitted form was invalid. Try submitting again.", you need to clear your cache & cookies. You can find a "Delete cookies" option at the bottom of this page.

- There is also a chance that your password is not correctly converted to the new system. This is a known bug with migrating the system. The only solution is to request a new password, there's a link on the form that will send an email to you to create a new password. If that fails, I can set a password for you, you can contact us at the "Contact us" link at the bottom of the page.

Don't worry about it, it's still a great recording. ;) Yet it makes one wonder if a recording where the Rendez-Vous 2 encore doesn't just fade out exists. After all, if the Concerts in China 2008 DVD (likely based on an Australian TV broadcast version) had a different audio track than the official ...

Rendezvous Lyon Broadcast, repaired and remastered

I did this earlier in the year but forgot to post it here. Anyway, the Lyon broadcast recordings online weren't so good - incomplete, different speeds, etc... so I've put them together, working on the sound (and speed) so they matched far more closely. Anyway, here it is: http://www.liveandloudshows...

Excellent work! Definitely the best-sounding version of this concert. :] ... Man, it really enhances the actual live parts (percussions, orchestra, choirs, certain synths etc.) and thus the concert itself. And finally there's pitch correction. ;) Thanks, that's appreciated. :) Yeah, this one was 1 ...

Lyon 1986 Concert - Repaired and Remastered

I'm very relieved to announce the Lyon 1986 concert remaster is now available on my site. This took loads of work, involving more than 1 recording from FM broadcasts, over quite a number of hours, in order to present as much of the show that was ever broadcast (and recorded), as well as possible. Fo...

The person posting it on YT actually says in the comments that he didn't tape the second half of the gig - so no chance of finding it; this was his own recording and he only taped the first half. I might try remastering the other fuller recording with the missing bits from here, speed correcting and...

To be honest, yes of course there are ways of getting a recording without the radio idents - but I tread a fine line. My overall concern is best quality - sometimes I can erase bad errors in the recording (distortion or a bad click) by deleting that part and replacing with an identical section from ...

BOOING?!! Really? I remember I was still outside queuing to get in when the overture was playing - missed the first 40 minutes!

Not much I can do to remove a persistent echo but if I can improve everything else that might make it more listenable anyway (at least that would be the idea).

Thanks both. Docklands...well I do have an FM copy from NRJ Radio (from France I assume) although I've not had chance to go through that yet. But the plan is to give that a go sometime this year. I need to make it sound much better than it was on the night. The night I saw the Docklands gig, the PA ...

I finally listened to the whole thing today and there's one little problem with it - the pitch/speed are slightly too high throughout the entire file. Haven't measured it yet, but definitely verified it against other recordings and a nearby synthesizer :) Really? After nearly 500 downloads no-one's...

Ok, I've prepared Equinoxe IV as a demonstration of what the original source sounded like and what I've done. This doesn't include any defects as this track was ok - really its just a demonstration of the 30 band EQ I applied. The track starts without, then EQ kicks in after about 12 secs. Then off ...

Wow. I didn't realised how limited the recordings from that concert actually are. It sounds like it has been recorded with a slightly unstable cassette player. :P Still it's well worth the effort, thank you Flip. Great job. :) One of the recordings that I have (not this particular one I think) was ...

Can you post a short A-B comparison?
Yes, happy to. I'll sort it out and post a link up later today.
