Hello........Welcome to my trading site :-) Here you will find a list of live recordings, demos and other rarities that I have collected over the years. I will happily trade recordings on a like-for-like basis & almost everything listed is available for trade. A few items marked as 'No Trade' are done so at the Tapers request & are listed purely for my reference.

If you require any further information about the recordings such as tracklistings, quality, lineage etc. feel free to ask.
I do not trade for profit and I do not trade officially released material. All trades must be on high quality branded discs (Verbatim, TDK, Maxell, Taiyo etc.) & no gaps between tracks, artwork is not essential but if you have it, great.
I am not interested in lossy sourced recordings. Support all the bands by purchasing the material that they release.

Nothing on this site is for sale so please don't ask!!!

Please DO NOT Torrent/Share/Weed anything that you receive from me!

Respect to the tapers who circulate shows!!

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: RULES & INFORMATION ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
• Please DO NOT send me Lossy Sourced material, keep the trading pool clean!
• BURN everything as DAO (disc at once), no pre-gaps!
• DO NOT copy discs 'on-the-fly', always copy to HDD first & verify data after burning.
• If you contact me for a trade, it is likely I will ask you to send first and vice versa.
• I copy all audio shows with
Exact Audio Copy - you should too!
• I use TAU Analyser 1.2 & Exact Audio Copy to test for Lossless Authenticity.
I use Trader's Little Helper for encoding/decoding FLAC/WAV files.
DVD Authoring is done in TMPGEnc so as to avoid re-encoding wherever possible.
Bespoke CGI is created by me in 3DS Max, Adobe After Effects & Sony Vegas.
Recording 'Duration's referred to on this site are as they are listed in Winamp
Ratings are 1-10 and are subjective (primarily for my reference), with 10 being best quality
(8 is average, 7 is listenable, 6 and under is probably for completists only).

+++ 24 Bit / mp2 (FM) File Conversions +++
As more recordings are starting to be recorded & shared in either 24Bit Lossless or mp2 formats I can trade these either as they are or in a more traditional 16Bit (CD) format. 24Bit files need to burned to Audio DVD or played back on a PC with a 24Bit compatible soundcard in order to benefit the full quality. I use 'DVD-Audiophile' or 'Lplex' for creating 24Bit Audio DVD's. Some traders prefer the standard Audio CD (16Bit) format, so I can convert these if required, but some conversion methods degrade sound quality during the conversion process eg. 24Bit FLAC -> 16Bit WAV with dBpowerAMP. All 24Bit -> 16Bit conversions that I do involve firstly decoding the FLAC to WAV file in 'Trader's Little Helper' and then transcoding to 16Bit in 'r8brain' or 'BeLight'. This method preserves audio quality.
I use 'BeLight' for converting mp2 files to WAV format (eg. FM Broadcasts captured from digital sources).

(All have been transferred at 24bit 48,000Hz but I can trade as either 24Bit DVD Audio or standard 16Bit CD)
