Here is the full show recording:

http://www.respektonline.com/shows.php?s=79

Thanks to the amazing Noise and Hiss removal features of Adobe Audition and a lot of painfully tedious trial-and-error bandpass filtering, I think this is almost listenable. There's still a fair amount of hissing, but it's in the same frequency range as the music so I don't think there's any way to get rid of it. I did my best to make the vocals stand out above the hissing and I think they do on almost all of the songs.

The louder songs like The Calculation and Machine sound best with the quieter songs having a lower SNR. The biggest disappointment is that the banter is almost completely inaudible. In most cases I just removed it because it sounds like 30-60 seconds of static and the end of the track. That shows how close this recording was to not happening... her singing was picked up, but not her talking. The audience clapping is also a little screwy because those levels were WAY too high and I had to bring them down in order to bring the music up without clipping things. For the most part that's fine, except in the few instances when the crowd cheers during a song.

I also uploaded the original .wav file of the whole show, so if anyone else would like to have a go at fixing it up, here it is: http://www.respektonline.com/a...4/trim_mono_only.wav

Here's what I can hear:

A man inside a room is

shaking hands with other men

This is how it happens

A carefully laid plan

Shake it shake it baby

Shake your ass out in that street

You're gonna make us scream someday

You're gonna make it big

You love so deep, so tender

Your people and your land

You love 'em 'til they can't recall

Who they are again

Work it work it baby

Work your way around that room

You're gonna make it ?? one day

You're gonna make it ??

But I am but I am but I am

Not a number, not a name

But I am but I am but I am

A carefully laid plan

A man inside a room is

Shaking hands with other men

This is how it happens

Our world under command

Shake it shake it baby

Shake your ass out in that street

You're gonna make us scream someday

you're gonna make us sweet

You're gonna make us scream someday

You're gonna make it big
