Queen + Adam Lambert

Date: July 14, 2012
Location: London, England, UK
Venue: HMV Hammersmith Apollo
Editing and Mix: Terra (adamwiki.org)

Release Info
------------
This release is a combination of audio recordings from TALC and MeghanEliseForPeace. The reason for this release is that while the TALC release has a lot more dynamic range and bass, it is a bit muddy and distant. The recording by MeghanEliseForPeace, although recorded in a lossy format, is overall clearer with less muting in the higher frequencies, but thinner than the TALC recording.

Work done to the audio:
- The audio from both sources were first converted to 44.1 kHz WAV using dBpoweramp Music Converter before being edited in Adobe Audition.
- For some reason, the TALC audio is about 250-300ms longer than MeghanEliseForPeace's audio, which results in the the audio tracks drifting apart through time. So I had to make some very tiny snips in parts of the TALC audio to keep it in sync.
- Using Adobe Audition, I made cuts in between tracks to sync the TALC audio with MeghanEliseForPeace's audio. The audio transitions between the cuts are seamless. (Audition has an auto 2ms crossover fade feature that helps ensures this.) No cuts were made during songs.
- Boosted TALC's mid to high frequencies using Audition's Multiband Compressor (see settings used here: http://www.mediafire.com/view/?een5ecpel5nhss2), as well as slightly balanced the audio channels using Amplify. Bass was slightly reduced.
- Further panned both tracks to the left channel a bit to make it more balanced.
- Exported the CD-compatible WAV mix of MeghanEliseForPeace's audio (+1dB) with TALC's audio (ensuring everything's in sync).
- Split the WAV into tracks using CDWave (which ensures no SBEs).
- Compressed to FLAC (Level 8).

My download has just finished, but it says it has downloaded only 618 MB although the download is 684MB. There is no error message or anything and I can not listen to the concert right now, to check if everything is ok. Should I download it again?

And thank you so much for this download.


Edit: I've just redownloaded it

my computer crashed during the download, maybe that caused the problem.
My second download is 684MB big, too. :)
