Some moderate equalization and normalization made my mediocre first taping attempt much more listenable - I should've taken the effort to do this in the first place! It's still quite echoey at times, I can't do anything about that, but at least it's not a muddy, quiet mess anymore. A Question Of Time and forward don't sound as consistent as the first half of the recording for some reason - probably because I kept having to stand up to let people pass and that disrupted the mic positioning, plus I didn't stand for the entire recording which would have helped tremendously for the quality of the recording. You can hear an example of how big of a difference it made when I simply stood up and sat down during A Pain That I'm Used To - compare the beginning of the track to when I stand at 1:43, then after I sit down; it gets much clearer when I stand for those few seconds, and gets muddier when I sit back down. Bass is still somewhat overpowering for Enjoy The Silence through the remainder of the recording (with the exception of Home of course). I felt that further EQ for those tracks would make the bass too weak, however. I wish I could say I had better luck the next time I tried taping (Nine Inch Nails 2013-10-30 Sunrise), but I got busted with my taping gear because I'm an idiot; it's a long story which I don't care to recount.

Dave messes up a line during Soothe My Soul (listen at 3:05). There is a false start for Personal Jesus.

Many thanks to JLW for lending me his CA-11 mics, and to everybody else who provided taping advice.
