The overarching point for me is that the artist/producer seemed incapable of making a decision during production, and therefore had to make all of the decisions in the mastering room...which turned out to be not the final mastering room.

What a shamozzle.

Daft Punks Random Access Memories is a milestone in the worldwide music business for several reasons: the cycling nature of the arrangements, the ambiguity of certain musical keys (e.g. Get Lucky), the symbolism of cinematic images, the hypnotic magnetism of the lyrics, the mix between analogue and digital sounds and the hybridism of this particular genre, from disco music to funky.
This album is a masterpiece for its outstanding mastering techniques: were not talking about a revival of the 70s albums dynamics, but of the construction of a modern dynamic. From a psychoacoustic point of view its soft, fresh and gives the listener a relaxing sensation, although it provides occasional sparkles of loudness.
The focal point is to make the listeners aware of something different theyve never heard before, but at the same time make it enjoyable...

Well, I solved it. Hmm, RTFM. I hope this will help others...

In section 6.23 there is a Right Click choice of Crop Project to Selection!

I've found that the well hidden "set time selection to items" action working in conjunction with the "crop project to selection" gets me where I need to go.  I find it odd that this kind of thing isn't super easy in Reaper....

The "set time selection to items" function is in Actions.  Open Actions and then the Actions list and search for it by name.  It's conveniently located at the very bottom of the search results.   And it's probably easiest to use if you set it to a keyboard shortcut.  Good luck finding an unused one of those!   

My workflow is this: cut all the tracks at once at the beginning (trim pre-show time) and then cut all the tracks at the end (trim post-show time).  I then click one of the middle tracks (representing the time span of what I want to keep) and then use this 'set time selection' function.  Then I right-click in the time bar (or whatever it is called and use the 'crop project' function like Rob suggested.  I find this easier to do and later see the results of than simply setting the time selection directly. 

Of course, the last step is to do the 'save project as' step that Rob outlined.

AKG's Gesamtschaltung schematic #1525 (http://www.jlmaudio.com/C28A%20circuit.gif) shows an 8nf at that position.
But it does not matter. Anything from 5000pf on up is used in that position by most manufacturers, with Neumann choosing 10nf (= 0.01mdf or 10.000pf).

Thanks for the quick response klaus, I'll have a look tomorrow and report back - although on the C28a it's a 4.7nf rather than an 8 which is a yellow Philips dog bone on mine - I't makes sense that it could be that maybe even  a solder break? Thanks again

It's probably not the 1fd vs. the 3.3fd  value that would cause extreme low end loss. I would look at the polarization cap (C1= 8nf to ground) first, and replace that with a 0.01mfd.

Any ideas? It's most definstely not the capsule - ive several of these mics so plenty of CKs of different vintages. Someone has replaced the original 3,2uf filter cap with a 1uf boring ally electro cap, but it looks quite new. All the rest look to be original components - I have a 3,3 wet tant that would fit in there nicely, I've also got a 20uf wet tant that could replace the cathode cap which seems to be original - everything else looks and measures out good. Some one suggested the tranny but that looks to meter about right and I'd assume that it would either work or not I do have a new haufe but I'd rather not replace it

Just wondered if any of you chaps would have any experiences and wisdom  before I take it apart?
