Soundboard audio demuxed from the Amazon Prime Video capture. Audio mixing is fine. Frequency response is mediocre, particularly considering the insane 512kbps bitrate and file size, going up to only about 14.5khz. Dave's vocals have some distortion during John The Revelator.

PeterToo's explanation of the broadcast from the Home forum.[1]

PeterToo from the Home forum stated on October 22, 2023:[1]

No idea why the festival stated what they did. Having spoken to both the audio and video techs, I can assure you: The Barcelona broadcast was not what they wanted broadcast.

FOH [front of house] does two mixes every night - one that's balanced for PA [public address], and another which is balanced for broadcast. The latter is basically a pre-set that works well for broadcast no matter what the venue is like.

The PA mix was used [for the broadcast].

The band's own guy does the visuals with side screens in mind - that's meant to enhance the live experience for the audience. Visually that wouldn't necessarily work very well for broadcast. The festival clearly had a camera crew and their own editors, but for some reason just plugged into the "side screen" feed and seemingly decided that'd have to do.

The video this audio is sourced from is available as Source 1.
