Maybe a specific area of the forum can be created, "Fix The Mix", including there all the finds done in the past about authoring problems.
One section for analog (which will be 99% Q8) with list of swapped channels etc;
One section for digital, which can include:
- the above issue of LFE phase invert and /or delay
- the messed channels configuration (example: TYA A space in time DVD, swap f/r)
- the "we tried to 5.1fied a quad mix but we did a dud" (example: Deep Purple Stormbringer dvd)
- other stuff (example: the l/r delay on the Sly&FS GH stereo track)
I mean, there's a wealth of information in this forum that is really precious; having a single point for collecting all this stuff will be important for the years to come, especially for the newcomers.
This was a great suggestion from QQ member winopener, so I checked with Angie to see if it could be done.
Angie has graciously created this new forum section so that we can gather all of the technical issues we've discovered over the years with surround releases that were let out with strange issues and glitches.
In an effort to keep the number of forums in check, instead of having different forums for analog and digital issues, we will try and flag each thread as digital or analog. This way you can easily distinguish which threads are which.
We know a lot of them right off the top of our heads, but there are others that have gotten lost in the decades of forum posts. So, you can help if you recall certain threads that point out errors or that contain fixes that can be done on a release, please point them out in this thread and I or another admin will move them here so that they can easily be found.
A big thanks to Angie for making this happen, and for all of those who find these mix-ups and let us know about them.
