Explanation about Matrix/ALD/IEM/Soundboard .



What is a soundboard recording?
These are "live" concerts recorded with professional equipment. During a concert the signal from the instruments usually channels through the central mixing station, or soundboard, before going to the PA system. A soundboard recording is a recording that takes place at the soundboard. These recordings are high quality.


What is an ALD (Assisted Listening Device) recording?
Bootleggers can request an ALD (Assisted Listening Device) headset at an arena concert (required by law for hearing impaired fans), which provides a high-quality feed of a live show using a low-level FM frequency broadcast inside a facility. Bootleggers will tape this headset feed, giving the bootleg not usual problems like random crowd noise or distortion.


What is an IEM (In Ear Monitors) recording?
In Ear Monitors are devices used by performers to hear a mix of microphones and/or instrument pickups that are on the stage. They are often custom fitted to the individuals ears and provide a high level of noise reduction from stage noise. An IEM recording is a recording of this wireless audio feed, there can be a difference between an IEM recording from Bono's feed and the recording from Adam's for instance.


What is a matrix recording?
A matrix recording is a new recording consisting of different tapes from the same show. An example can be that you have an audience and IEM recording (both have their own (dis)advantages) and you want to mix them in one recording, that would be a matrix.

vox12string explanation , thank you.
I find it interesting how some of the nomenclature has developed & become part of the mainstream.

Working musicians don't use the word 'soundboard' it's a 'mixing desk' or just 'mixer' (not to be confused with the folks twiddling the knobs & faders who are also known as 'mixers'). There are usually 2 desks at a concert, the 'Front of House' (FOH), which is the main one in front of the band & which mixes the sound you hear out front. Then there's the 'monitor' or 'foldback' desk, usually hidden on one side of the band which is solely responsible for what the musicians hear.

When we mix 2 audio sections together it's called just that, a 'mix', certainly not a 'matrix'.

2012 RIP Internet

Jos, is wonder if a lot of those 99 tour sbs(that at the time I was told was a ALD) might have been IEM instead? Possibly Ronnie's because most of these seemed to have Ron way up ands Keith nearly outta the mix.

I don't know either. Aren't in an IEM recording "instructions" for the band member audible like on the DAC set from Japan 2006 (DAC-050)?

This may be right. I have a pro-shot of a Roger Waters concert of last years and you can hear all the time the metronome ticking that is giving the right speed of the sound.
