An excellent matrix recording created from an in-ear monitor feed and two audience recordings. Notably, tracks 3, 4, and 5 only include partial in-ear monitor (IEM) audio due to recording challenges, resulting in some inconsistency. The audience recording steps in to fill the gaps, creating a good but occasionally uneven listening experience.

Efforts have been made to remove the click track where possible. However, it may still be audible here and there, and a hi-hat guide track accompanies My Cosmos Is Mine and Wagging Tongue until the kick drum begins. Some songs feature subtle cowbell guide sounds in certain sections.

The 'default' version of It's No Good includes a different feed of the IEM recording for the first approximately 90 seconds. The full IEM recording stabilizes for the last third of the track onward, and there is consistent sound for the remainder of the concert.

For those seeking a tailored experience, three bonus versions of It's No Good are provided. These options allow you to exclude audience/partial IEM tracks for your listening copy.

  • One with a fade-in at the beginning of the IEM portion, including only the last third of the song from where the consistent IEM begins.
  • The IEM portion of the song without the fade-in.
  • A pure audience version until the consistent IEM segment begins.

Additionally, if you prefer to eliminate the inconsistency in other partially IEM matrixed tracks while maintaining a complete recording, you can substitute the "audience only" tracks from either Source 2 (a matrix of the two audience sources only) or Source 3 (DMLiveWiki's recording).

Immense thanks to bias for dedicating countless hours to creating this matrix, and heartfelt thanks to fried_morals and Anonymous for their contributions in recording Source 4 and the IEM portion, respectively.

For those interested, an audience matrix of DMLiveWiki's and fried_morals's audience recordings can be accessed at Source 2.

Both individual audience recordings utilized in this matrix are available separately as Source 3 (DMLiveWiki) and Source 4 (fried_morals), respectively.
