Thanks Mosherben, your MP3s are excellent! Enjoyed listening to them.
Here's my contribution :) I tried to upload these on Muselive a few times today but can't seem to get it to work (keep getting an error message), so I hope no one minds me posting a link here.
This is an Icom radio recording of the Muse gig at Wembley on the Saturday. It's an unusual recording and its far from perfect, but am sure it will be of interest to some :)
The first thing to note is many of the tracks have the click beat mixed in with the music. To my knowledge, this is a backing track used by the musicians to keep in time to the music. This will either fascinate or infuriate you or both! Its not as noticeable in louder songs but it can be clearly be heard in most of the tracks, especially the quieter ones.
These type of recordings also suffer badly with interference from mobile phone interference (and there was lots of these in the stadium ;) so many of the tracks have radio interference and bursts of static throughout them. Tracks 15 + 16 are probably the worst for this.
The first couple of mins from Uprising is missing as I was searching for a signal. There's also around 5 minutes missing between track 11 + 12, as I was looking for an alternative signal.
Now for the interesting stuff. I can't be 100% sure, but this recording may be a feed from an IEM (In Ear Monitor), or possibly from a sound tech's feed of the music.
During some of the tracks, especially the earlier ones, you can hear the backing vocals more clearly in the mix, with Matts vocals much quieter in the background.
You can also hear a techy guy talking in the background now and again, usually just a quick 1 - 2 , to test equipment or something.
Sometimes certain instruments / sounds are louder or can be heard with more clarity than others. Everything the band say to the crowd in between songs can be heard really clearly and the audience are also included in the mix. You won't hear any annoying chit chat in the background though as its a radio recording : )
Will post FLACS shortly for those that want them, probably on Dime, and am sure these will find their way to the other usual Muse dload sites : )

I've "remastered" them (if you could even call it that) as on the originals, they lacked so much bass. So i've re-uploaded them here (http://www.muselive.com/forums.php?m=posts&q=48563&n=last#bottom) and once they have been validated (more to be uploaded, validated within a few days) you'll be free to download them. With an account, of course.

But if you're still curious, this isn't something to listen to like any other concert. This has click tracks. This sounds like Chris' in ear monitor too as it has ALOT of Chris. SO MUCH CHRIS infact. Backing vocals are loud, bass is loud. It's amazing. Enjoy.

I just put this in the 11th thread, sorry :LOL:

Better off having it's own thread though :)

No you did the right thing, I think I did it seconds before you anway and I only found it through your post on Adam's status :)

Wow this is amazing! I take it your having to pay the rather expensive price to get more than just Uprising/SMBH/Knights? :(

Nope. Just click the big blue download button, wait 60 seconds then download :D

Aww brilliant, thanks for posting Nick! I've got the IEM tracks from Nagoya and apart from a little interference here and there they're amazing. Can't wait to relive the gig, and it's always fascinating to heat click tracks. It's like a behind the scenes look at how the show is put together.

Plus, extra beefy Chris? Me likey! Download in the morning I think. :D

Haha, this is priceless. Can't imagine Chris would be too happy about this leaking :LOL:, though he sounds pretty damn spot-on even isolated like this.

Interesting that three of the four OoS songs -- PiB, CE and FG -- are the only songs that aren't clicked. I guess it's because those are oldies and they're comfortable enough to play them unassisted?

Downloading REALLY slow because my internet sucks... can anyone tell me if the MK Jam is pretty clear? Been hanging out for a decent version of that for ages :)

These are fantastic, I'm guessing they are from Chris's bass tech IEM

What are click tracks?

What are click tracks?

Basically a metronome fed into the band's in-ear monitors to help them keep time and synchronize backing tracks, etc. The clicks you hear in the recording are the click track.

Ohhh ok. I thought Muse wouldn't need that? :S

Ohhh ok. I thought Muse wouldn't need that? :SWell, naturally their own sense of rhythm (dictated by Doms drumming) will speed up or slow down and move around a bit so the click track helps them keep it constant... its mainly so that they stay in sync with the lights and the screens, and also if theres a backing track for synthesisers or orchestra, they need to keep in time with that to.

I imagine that it's not necessarily because the band needs it, but being as production heavy as their live shows are, it's probably a necessity to synchronize the audio and video cues as well for the sound techs and the rest of the production team. Besides, any band that plays to a click track will sound tighter.

Ah ok, cool thanks :)

Also, is the occasional static cos whoever recorded it tuned into the frequency and it cuts out every now and again?

The click track is useful for making the recordings near perfect.

For those wondering, this is how I think the recorder obtained them (I'm guessing but I would love for someone to correct me or to tell me I'm right!)

The in-ear monitors are connected to radio-transmitters strapped to the back of their trousers. As there are no wires to the monitor mixing desk, these would have to be connected wirelessly, probably using radiowaves along different channels. For someone to pick these channels up, it wouldn't require anything high-tech. So technically, these recordings can be obtained at any concert which radiotransmitter monitors are used?



Transmitter and receiver

The most common professional stage in-ear monitor system employs the use of a wireless system to send the mix to the IEMs. This system contains a transmitter and a receiver pack that is worn by the performer. There is generally a transmitter for each monitor mix and there is always a receiver for each IEM. The transmitters usually output either one stereo mix or two mono mixes. When the transmitters are set up for two mono mixes, one transmitter can be used for two different mixes. Any number of receivers can receive a single mix. The output from a receiver is generally too weak to power two monitors at the same time.
The Transmitters and Receivers transfer audio wirelessly via a VHF or UHF radio frequency. Generally speaking, UHF systems sound much better than VHF systems and are therefore more expensive to purchase. UHF systems usually are less susceptible to frequency interference which adds to their level of quality.

Well there we go! :D

So judging by this, Chris actually can't sing that well. :LOL: The Chris falsetto on MK is hilarious. It's cool to hear him singing Uprising though.

An audience recording is available on musebootlegs.com! It pretty good. :)

Bailey Essrog

Haha, in fairness to Chris, he wasn't really singing expecting his isolated mix to leak to the public and he was also mainly harmonizing and blending in, so he obviously wasn't putting forth his best solo effort. Love CE: *silence* "With no feeeeeeelings at all..." *silence* :LOL:

We actually have four AUDs for the 10th, two AUDs and one IEM for the 11th. Pretty wide selection to choose from!

That's quite good. Although I never really download audience recordings.. The only good one I've heard is the 12th 02.

Which is the best quality recording on the 11th out of the two available?

This is so effing cool, thanks so much for sharing! :D

I wish it'd stayed on Chris's side (it seems to switch to Matt at one point, cos by the time you get to KoC, it's all Matt and his crazy wailing, haha... hilarious!), but it's still awesome, lol. Feel like some secret agent hacking into their earpieces or something :LOL:.
