Dave Matthews Band - SPAC Saratoga Springs, NY, July 29, 2002


This show was voted from our user in a dedicated poll (Which show should we remaster next? ep.02). Great selection, indeed!


Remastering notes: This show was so fun to work on! Major kudos to Eric Naylor; he captured a beautiful recording of this excellent show! In the mastering process, I did some corrective dynamic EQ, very light glue compression, sweetening EQ, a bit of saturation, stereo spread, and light limiting to address the transients. Hope you enjoy!

Sample and Remastering Notes: There's a sample of Grey Street from the original tape and also a sample of my mastered version in the "Samples" folder, just so you can hear the difference between the original and the mastered side by side. I’m very proud of how this master turned out; I think it’s sounding really full and punchy, with a nice and dynamic openness to it! In the mastering process, I did some corrective dynamic EQ, very light glue compression, sweetening EQ, a bit of mild saturation, stereo spread enhancement, and gentle limiting to address the transients. Excited to hear your thoughts, and I hope you all enjoy!



Taper Credits: Major kudos to Eric Naylor; he captured a beautiful recording of this excellent show! Thanks, Eric - both for taping and for being generous enough to let me work on mastering this show to share with the community. You rock, pal!
