it'll forever be "The Tomit Collection"! dammit! i mean Tomit!Just checked the CD inserts and they only list five Tomita CDs in total!
i will check my copy as soon as i have accessI don't see anything at discogs either about 'Tomita In Surround'
Though discogs shows that cover for 'The planets' title.
I think what happened is the booklet photos were all uploaded, including a preview photo of 'Tomita In Surround' & somehow that one got chosen as the 1st photo to display.
I didn't know that. So the surround channels output doesn't go lower than 100Hz?A little OT, however, regarding PRO-ARTE CDX 013 (1990) Sample Surround CD (DS encoded version):
I guess nobody told the album producers that Dolby Surround limits the surround channel bass to 100Hz, the Cannon Fire tracks (5,6) sound good in L, C, R but in S, it's like a pop, not a boom.
That's probably because theaters had rather powerful subwoofers that could handle the bass that the surround speaker array couldn't handle. The Pro Arte people should have known about that limitation before mixing the cannons into the surround channel.I have both versions, the Stereosurround version doesn't have the Cannon Fire tracks.
IIRC, of all the matrix systems, only original Dolby Surround has this limited frequency response for the surround channel.
Saw this thread and realized I had gotten one of the Tomita discs. Didn't have a 5.1 system when I bought it so stuck it in cd rack. Listened tonight and was surprised by the mix. Really nice when I turned it up. Probably listen to Q8 tomorrow. Been a while but I remember it had a real discrete mix, as all four do. He usually got more discrete as tape ran. He'd slam the quad on track two.
I "saved" the Snowflakes Are Dancing tape when splice broke by taking the one end that was sticking out and winding it onto the wheel of a cart I could take apart. Didn't want to lose it!
