Since I starting collecting NIN live recordings. I have been trying to find out who taped many of these 94/95 shows with Sonic Studio mics. I had come close a few times to getting in contact. 15 years of trying, it finally happened. We talked and discussed and I now know they go by the alias FUZZMONSTER. One of the things I mentioned was how important it was to get the best quality we could out of his DATs. Like many old media, these tapes have a shelf life. The NIN tapes I had of his were not of the best transfers. Some of them may have been DAT master > Cassette and the cassette transfer had drop outs from the initial master DAT transfer. Or maybe a copy did not have a clean pass of the DAT clone etc etc. Fuzz entrusted me to transfer some of his oldest master DATs. I am excited to do this! Some of these tapes I have been listening to for years and to work on the masters is a privilege. DATs during that time were very expensive, so recording in LP mode would double the amount of time you could record on to a tape. The recordings have been very good and there are other bands that fuzz has recorded. One of the best recordings from the 1994 tour. Honestly, at times you think there is no way you are listening to an audience recording and this must be a soundboard recording. Great quality. In July 2023 I have found the person responsible for this recording and they sent me their DAT masters to transfer. A huge upgrade from the cassette copy I had of this DAT recording. I did a few passes for this transfer and there are some spots of diginoise. This is probably due to the age of the DAT tape, as well as the recording being done in LP mode. I tried to clean the spots up as best I could. Thanks to Fuzzmonster for allowing me to transfer these DATs!
