I have been trying to see if the multitracks for the first album were available as far back as 2007, but have not any more luck since - I was always keen on the possibility of doing a new mix especially in surround. If there are still no multitracks to be found I hope they don't just put the stereo mix through an up-mix plugin to Atmos - that would not be appropriate.Now the real question, I saw someone mention earlier that the label wants to put out Atmos versions of the two studio albums. I beseech the music gods, PLEASE YES! They are the two records I most want to hear immersively. BUT we need Steven Wilson desperately for that. Anyone up for a Go Fund Me to finance a commando raid to grab the masters and SW and put them together until we have the epic records we deserve. I have some experience with the raiding so I'm kinda pretend volunteering.
These days I am involved with de-mix technology to do forensic work on available limited recordings, so if anyone was going to try to create 5.1/Atmos remix versions from the original stereo I would be the best person - especially as I totally understand the processes and treatments involved on the first album!!
