How do I tell? I've had the CD for a few weeks but haven't played it as yet. I don't have the DVD-V yet to compare it to
Thanks Linda. That was what I was after. I don't have a full logic decoder and am unlikely to have access to my stereo in the near future. I was wondering if I could put it through a script and upload it somewhere for someone to check? I've totally lost track of the scripts so could someone tell me what the latest one was please?The segue between Let the Sky Fall and Hard Monkeys should swirl around you in a circle
if its' different content in the quad mix, or different instruments used (or even entire passages of music can be different) or stuff that just wasn't there in the original stereo, then even a stereo mixdown of the quad mix would sound different to the original stereo mix on the LP.. and so be worthwhile presenting to fans who don't have or don't want surround playback.Actually I've just read the back of the CD and it says
"Tracks 11-20 are a new stereo mix down of the original 1973 SQ Quadraphonic edition, newly remixed by Peter Mew at Abbey Road. Previously unreleased"
What on earth would posses them to do that?
haha.. that's a very astute observation! whoever oversaw this new transfer (Peter Mew..!?) certainly didn't have (or didn't use) the original commercial quad releases of this to reference the finished product.After listening to ASIT DVD-V a second time last evening, it dawned on me: most of the guitar leads are in the rears (now the fronts.) Perhaps this is why this was mastered bass ackwards. Still, didn't ANYONE realize that the vocals were in the rears?
Mine has not yet arrived. Am I missing something regarding the mix? Am I going to need to sit backwards on my sofa to listen to this one?I bought the LP/DVD-V, which I rated 7. Even though it's lossy, I would have rated it 10 if the damn thing weren't bass ackwards.
