Barclays new for me but have done Madison Square Garden many times.  Last time was David Gilmour.  It's a tough one but I have a method that has worked for me.  We should definitely try and meet up for a beer or two in any event.

Barclays is a bitch, but if it works at MSG, stick with it, but be extra precautious.  I avoid that place like the plague...but part of that for me is getting there and back is more than a pain in the ass.  MSG is a direct train ride for me...if I can meet up at that time, I definitely will.  If I had the money, I would have snagged a ticket for Clapton in a heartbeat.  Love Waters (music, not him), but if I was able to afford that ticket, I'd see him at Nassau Coliseum because it's local for me.  At least I've seen and recorded both.

MSG is easiest for me too, my friend who I stay with is 3 subways stops away.  I am pretty well versed with walkthroughs and wands out here so I will be prepared.  Lets figure out a plan,

this is from before I even knew what I was doing with the internals.

internal mic recording from 4 years ago. and it sounds fantastic.

now that I know what I'm doing, this may be easier than I thought.


I'm gonna hit Winwood and Mavis regardless of what Douchespy does.

as I don't expect her to walk the walk.

Crawl back under your rock.  I am sure you picked those shows because you saw I was going to be out of town.  My trip was booked last October and has been discussed on this thread and others.   Why don't you postpone your trip for this http://www.hardlystrictlybluegrass.com/2017/     It is free,  just your style. 

Doesn't matter what you do, your recordings aren't any good.   Doesn't matter how hard you fluff them.   I'm sure you plan on doing Winwood from the last row since there are no good seats available I would tape from.

this recording is a *perfect* example of why I would never, ever spend a dime on Schoepps mics, or use a mic stand.

what an utterly, muddy burpy mess.

everything to the left of 400hz is jumping up to +10-+12dB, then by the time you get to 1khz, the entire spectrum struggles to hit -12dB (nee: no mids or highs)


it *could* be fixed with some moderate EQ, but as is, what a waste.

please don't flatter yourself, you're not so important that I pay attention to what you're doing...it's always a bunch of tired oldhead garbage anyways...

if I want a good Winwood seat, I get a good Winwood seat...money is not an object at this stage of the game...I just choose to not waste it on fluffed microphones.

my recordings actually are pretty good, sorry to break it to you...

go have fun with the AARP crowd...I'll just keep doing my thing.

Appreciate the feedback, good or bad. You're right, I did not do any post EQ; I certainly don't claim to be an expert in post. Actually with the way the venue sounded and where I was positioned, I'm thinking my AT hyper might end up sounding better. Hopefully will get some time to go through that source soon. Were you at the show? I met someone early on in the night who I never caught his name. I think you're hitting a couple shows this tour, hope you enjoy them.

So you're agreeing that your tape is a "mess"? I downloaded it and, using the dragonfly and AT cans for playback, it sounds fine. He is using the audio equivalent of a Polaroid camera, so his feedback might not be the best gauge.

It actually sounds better than I was expecting given the room and my position, which I'm happy about. I very much enjoyed listening to it again while tracking it, which is what I think matters. What I do agree with is that I don't have enough experience yet to EQ well and hence don't. I'm sure my tapes could sound better, and I certainly hope to get there with more experience, but I am still learning. Appreciate your feedback  :cheers:
