Alrighty folks, I've gone and remastered the hell out of this FOB Neumann u89i (Etree shnid 960) source for 12.31.99. From what I can tell with my own ears and from what others have said, this is the mack daddy of sources for this particular night. (4/19/10 edit: the recently circulated FOB mk4v is considered by many to be the best, but for one it's only the midnight set, and I still prefer this Neumann source...). It's the source that was chosen for the "Project Midnight to Sunrise" DVD over at the Traders' Den. I haven't tackled 12.30 yet because this one was such a beast to fix.
However, once I gave it a listen on my headphones I was shocked by how left-sided the recording was. Or was it right? Either way it was practically almost all in one channel. So I took the liberty of rebalancing the stereo separation with Nero Wave Editor so that it's more centered.
This was already one of the best sounding festival auds I had heard before I remastered it, so I didn't have to do a whole lot in the way of EQ tweaking. I did give Mike some more oomph, and a little more warmth to the overall recording. I also spiked the high end a bit (as I almost always do unless the orginal recording is overly bright and sharp), which has made it sound a lot clearer and punchier. Trey's solos have much more life to them now...just listen to the short solo in After Midnight.
Since you can't download folders over 1024MB with Megaupload (for free at least), I've split the FLAC folders in a way that results in the least amount of folders. The tracks are numbered in order as if they are in one huge folder. If you plan on burning to CD, consult the text file to see how to divide the tracks into CDs. The whole show (including the afternoon set) takes up 10 discs. The AAC's should all be tagged properly and should appear in proper order when you drag and drop into iTunes.
Here are the EQ settings I used:
