UK Area Music

After months of trying, I finally found a signal that allowed me to make an induction recording of the UK area music. However, the signal turned out to be too low, so the recording has no low or mid range sounds. On top of this, all of the corrections I have tried in Adobe Audition are not helping. :'(

Close, but yet so far away...

EDIT: The loop is rather short - 29:21.

Buckets of sympathy coming your way.
I know how disappointing it is to find you have a recording and when you get home find that just isn't "fixable".
It is, however, comforting to hear that even experienced people still have problems (setting out with my first induction mic in 3 weeks to DLRP - several hours of bzzzzzzzzzzz coming up!).
Do you think you will have a chance of getting another recording or is the signal just too weak?
Maybe my comment re a screwdriver and a wrecking bar (jemmy, crowbar) wasn't that far out ;)

I checked several places and the signal strength was either the same or worse. There are two other possibilities for capturing this again. First, someone is sending me (we think) a more "powerful" induction mic, so I am hoping this device will be able to produce something of higher quality. The other option is to try and reach the speakers that are on the poles. However, this option will require a tall extension, at least 5' or more, plus some way to hold it in place for 30 minutes. I'm not a fan of doing recordings like this so I will most likely pass on this method. In fact, I have heard recordings made from the pole speakers using this method and the sound quality was not the best, although perhaps better than what I just captured, as there was at least low/mid level sounds captured.

My Wilderness Lodge lobby recording also came out poor. This hasn't been a good weekend. However, at least it will serve as a reference recording to reconstruct the loop. Besides thx99, who would be the best to help identify the correct tracks in the loop?

So you are taking yourself out of the nomination process? I guess I gave you too many loops to decipher. :)
No, not the case at all! Just adding another ID'ing expert to the list. I'm always up for the challenge. :)
