Glasto Sound on Freeview

Post by Mr Onion » Sat Jun 24, 2017 6:27 pm

Is it just me, or is the Freeview Audio feed going through a pair of overloaded crappy lappy speakers?

We just can't listen to it, it makes my ears bleed

James,
It's not just you the sound is very splashy and toppy.
They might sort it out before it finishes. :smt005

I watched part of the Radiohead broadcast last night and I wonder if it might have more to do with the source (the music). What do people see (hear) in such noise?!

"Listening" to Elbow (a band we both love) was an experience I would never want to repeat.

Its supposed to be a music festival, so why does the SQ have such a low priority?

Just watching back Ed Sheeran from last night and at some point it I think the sound engineer from the BBC found the Box of leads to hook up to the feed on stage. I got the db meter out and clocked just over 100 :lol:

Most of what I had heard sounded like a Skype call from an iPhone being held 10 rows back in the crowd. :smt018
Well Keeled :smt020
