Queen + Paul Rodgers 'The Cosmos Rocks Tour 2008'
Estadio San Carlos de Apoquindo
November 19th, 2008. -Originally recorded and shared by pavlov at Queenzone.com-
Edited by Alex Solan.
Since the original "taper", pavlov, for some reason I don't know, recorded this from the radio broadcast with fade in's & out's, plus, his original WAV files are also fade in/out-ed, I've decided to try to improve this sounboard recording editing and smoothing out all those annoying fades, and I think it sounds pretty good!
Besides all that editing, I also replaced We Are The Champions + God Save The Queen with the audio from the DVD taken from the (TV station) master tape.
As you can read further on, the broadcast had several probs during this two songs and they replaced most of WATC with Radio Ga Ga a as "musical curtain" and also cut GSTQ.
I've also removed those annoying comments at the beginning of the show and added a fade in.
Some of you might think "oh, he replaced two songs in lossless quality with a lossy source from a DVD-5..."
Well, that's not certainly accurate: the original radio broadcast it's LOSSY, and don't get me wrong, I'm not slightling pavlov's work, not at all, he just recorded what the radio station gave him. So, pavlov's recording it's lossless from a lossy radio transmission ;-)
In fact, I'm thinking to rip all of the DVD audio, edit all the several skips present on it and encode to FLAC; frankly, I find the audio from that DVD more enjoyable than the radio broadcast. And remember that both sources are lossy.
On the near future, I plan to completely re-author the DVD (audio and video, if possible), cut out that HORRENDOUS picture slide in the middle of the show, create a new menu, etc. etc.
So lineage for this current version of the show should go like this: * Source 1 (most of the show):
Radio Broadcast > Philips FM Radio > LINE IN Soundblaster Audigy @ X-FI > Audiograbber (WAV) > FLAC Frontend level 8 > FLAC files merged and decoded using GoldWave > editing process also with GoldWave > encode using Trader's Little Helper (aligned on sector boundaries) > FLAC level 8 ** Source 2:
Queen + Paul Rodgers: We Got Santiago Rockin' DVD-5 from the TV station master > DVD Audio Extractor > Lossy ACM Audio ripped downsampled from 48000 Hz to 44100 Hz to WAV (We Are The Champions / God Save The Queen) > editing using GoldWave (tracks added to source 1) Total file size: 1,01 GB
Total running time: 2 hours. 28 minutes. 27 seconds.
