Nice mix and song, thanks for the heads up...
Those discs certainly are from a discrete standpoint and their use of ATMOS to send sounds up, down, and around the room.Booka Shade - Galvany Street. This, "Dear Future Self" and Yello's "Point" are paradigm shifts in surround music.
@Kaspars Barbals: I just wanted to let you know that I've only found time to listen to the first six tracks so far--at a good loud volume, anyway--and I really like the music. I had no idea that bagpipes--dūdas--played such a big role in Latvian music. They sound so much like the uilleann pipes, and the record reminded me almost immediately of the Irish band Moving Hearts. I hope that's not an inappropriate comparison. Great blend of folk, rock, jazz, and world influences.Very generous of you to share, and I look forward to listening! (My high-school girlfriend was the daughter of a Latvian immigrant, so I have a soft spot for your country's culture....)
Bandcamp allows vendors to sell multichannel music, but they don't make it easy--which is to say, your customers won't be able to download directly from Bandcamp in the same way that they would with stereo FLACs or mp3s. How it typically works is that Bandcamp collects the money from the sale, then you email the customer and provide them with a download link to your own cloud storage.
Another option might be ImmersiveAudioAlbum.com.
Are the mixers for these classic soul tracks identified? (Tidal has been hit-and-miss about providing that info in the past.) @Steve G, can you shed any light?Yeah there's a couple more been added to the Soul playlist. Additional tracks as well are -
Listen to Just The Two Of Us (feat. Bill Withers) [Atmos Mix] on TIDALtidal.comListen to Don't Let The Green Grass Fool You (Atmos Mix) on TIDALtidal.comListen to Someday We'll All Be Free (Atmos Mix) on TIDALtidal.com
Interesting coming across some that have had multichannel mixes before. I still prefer the Scheiner 5.1 and the quad to be honest (might also be down to compression) but these Atmos mixes are very good.
I'm trying to figure out how to rip my Atmos discs and then play them back off the hard-drive and get the Atmos stream recognized by my AVR. Let me know how it works out for you.Studying now how to get my JRiver to play an ATMOS file, it can be done, JRiver forum is helping.
Thanks, I'll work in that a bit. I run Linux here but see how much of this I can transport. Main issue will be JRiver but we'll see.You can start using the easiest one-click (literally) way and back up the whole disc using MakeMKV (and it's recommended to backup the whole disc anyway in case the disc gets damaged later).
Yep it does, the main vocal at least. It's a shame as mixed correctly it would be really good. The same thing occurs on James Brown - Super Bad.
Yeah that's one thing about the stream you miss (as well as the compression) - the visuals on this are excellent and really add to the experience. There's some very clever and witty creativity gone into the animation. At some points it also feels like your room is a disco. I'm sure it'd be even more awesome in 3D.Listening now to Kraftwerk 3-D Catalogue from Tidal. I ordered the actual box set from a guy in Germany 20 days ago, DHL, will get here eventually but this Tidal Atmos Kraftwerk is special, and I know the actual box set will be even better. I turned off my foundation speakers and just listened to the 4 heights, wow, very active and picks up all the LFE also. The screen saver of my TV comes on in about 5 mins so I don't have to stare at a red square.
