Description

I have been capturing the data for this target between other projects and finally got around to processing it. Quite thrilled with how it turned out!

I was originally planning on pouring around 50+ hours into this target and I did... But a good chunk of my data was not playing nice so I had to scrap around half of it. The subs had weird segmentation in them, looked like a collage. I have a feeling it was a USB traffic issue.
