I find that over the last few years, as much as it's nice to have the SBD recordings from ABB, Mule or DTB, I actually am preferring the audience copies that surface through trading or D/L. I feel the ambiance is so much better and really re-created the feel of being there, as opposed to the SBD.

Also, as much as I love the convenience of downloading shows...I actually like the whole trading/vine aspect better. It's great communicating with everyone...

Curious what everyone else thinks..

Honestly, I find myself listening less and less to audience tapes. I was a taper for years (well, I guess I still am), but almost always prefer the soundboards.

As a musician and an audio freak, the imbalance of some of the soundboards and certain other anomolies do bother me, but never as much as the lack of detail in the music in an audience tape.

With the ABB, this is particular, 'cause they have 2 drummers and a percussionist that can get really jumbled up in the sound if your really want to hear the detail of the difference between them (which I do).

There are some excellent audience tapes that I still listen to (3/23/01 is a great example) and if they all sounded like that, I'd listen to them all.

The problem is, too many people are loud and disrepectful to the music at shows and much of that comes off on the tapes. At least to me.

I don't like soundboards with audience patches. Sometimes I get a show and the recording changes from "SBD" to "AUD" every five minutes.

I'm assumming with the SBD's, particulary ABB, they record each instrument on a different channel, which provides the seperation you hear coming from the speakers...Very noticable with Derek & Warren.

From a music listening experience, then I can see why the SBD would be the preference. From a overall show experience, I think the Audience provides some of that feel you can't get from a SBD. More like you're there with everyone else...and quite honestlly, when you see it live I think it sounds more like what you hear on the audience source anyway. One Way Out is a perfect example. It always sounds better from an audience source because you can everyone singing along. Something you just can't get from the pure SBD. But I hear what your saying and do think it makes logical sense.

I also agree with you Barry...the patches are annoying and kill the flow
