Maybe make a note that this is 'fake stereo'?

Just a bit of background. In the sixties the record companies (esp. Capitol Records in the US) were obsessed with attaining a stereo type effect for the mono recordings that they had. I think the most well-know of these is Pink Floyd's Arnold Layne on the Relics release. Capitol initially used terms as Duophonic for these releases where the mono signal was pratically doubled up from one channel to two. The problem with these was that when played on stereo equipment they seem to attain a significant amount of reverb.

I'd say with any live-recording the issue is quite different. Audience recordings clearly depend a lot more on position and quality of the equipment. Soundboard depends very much on the live mixing desk setup - the latter is prossibly the cause of the fact that this is a mono recording. Now the issue might be that the signal was 'collated' through the laptop input and was originally stereo. Maybe the original taper could shed some light on this. I'm also wondering why it was mixed down from 24 bit?

16bit is still the standard, most people have soundcards that can't actually play back 24bit without harshly truncating to 16bit. If dither wasn't applied during the conversion done to the show in question this was indeed a misstep.

Hello to you, the right honorable gentleman from Belfast. The fake stereo effects you are describing occur when a producer or whatever adds some differences between the channels that weren't there. Identical L and R channels will give you a mono recording.

This information was provided in the first post. It was a mono feed from the soundboard. It was never stereo.

Thanks for the history lesson. Note the emphasis. The recording discussed here has no delay between the channels. What you are talking about has no bearing.

Re: Is it ok If I seed this soundboard?

Yep, basically all that has been done is allow simultanious sound from both channels. Nothing hightech or new, but 10 times better than straight mono, and 20 times better than any "fake stereo"ing or altering of the time loads.

I've done the same thing before, just never seeded it.
