- in your face
How does the 5.1 remix compare to the old 4.0 mix (which was repurposed to 5.1 in 2004)?Ok, my friends, My first impressions on the 2023 STEREO Remix (by Ben Wisen) of Remember The Future:
1 - Guitars and vocals are more upfront. You can hear all the layers crystal clear and more "fat"
2 - Some bass lines was smoothed too much. I think the original mixes have more definition and bite. The New Stereo Mixes it's sometimes get lost in the mix and lose impact in important parts of the song.
3 - Organ and Drums almost the same. But i still preferer how the drums sounds on the original, a little more open.
4 - The position of the instruments in the stereo image and all the effects is very respectful to the original.
So, the new mixes don't substitute the orignal mixes. In my humble opinion nobody can improve whats it's already perfect.RTF is a masterpiece of audio engineering.
While in hearing i keep asking if this new Stereo Mixes was really done using the all the original multitracks or is a downmix from the original Quad.
Anyway, for the Stereo lovers, now we have another take/prism of the album. Sure guitar aficionados will love. I'm glad that the Original Stereo Mixes are also available in the pack. The Remaster sounds pretty good. No satanic compression or limiting.
Now i will hear the live tracks. Cheers!
