I do not own the Bluray of M&C, but the Bosso Bluray spectrograms look like the LFE channel is either missing or the disc is being played back as 5.0 content.

The loud action effects of the DD/DTS version of the DVD were heavy in the 30 to 50 Hz area on the LFE track. The Bluray version does not show any action there at all. That is hardly the infra area.

I just think it's odd that this was specifically for the BD release. Who knows if there was significant infra content in the theater but the dvd definitely has it in spades.

Just... odd.

To me, those two pictures don't look "right" if they are indeed the exact same time and playback level, compensation for DN, etc....

I've put out my feelers.. I'll let you guys all know what I find out.

Thanks FM!

Any chance you could find out why Tron:Legacy has so much clipping? Was it the remix that Kosinksi (sp?) did?

I don't think that Kolinski did the remix all by himself..

I am going to see Gary, who mixed the film, at the beginning of November... we will have a nice long talk about it then..

I'm sure we'd all appreciate hearing the responses about that. I have to say, though, having both versions, the difference in realism and storytelling is night and day in that particular opening cannon fire sequence. The DVD's DTS mix is immersive, potent, and thrilling. If you've ever heard big cannons fired up close and personal in real life, this is a reasonably accurate presentation of the effects on the ears and body, and it really sets the tone of the movie. The BR mix is flat, dry and lacking by comparison.

Back when all of the discussion over the dissapointment with the M&C BR was going on didn't a member from overseas (France?) post spectrum plots that seemed to indicate that their version was not filtered in the same way as the NA version?

It was the French audio track that I believe is unfiltered. It's on the US Blu-ray disc.

Is there more than one M&C Bluray for the US?


The audio in this version is called better than the DVD per the customer reviews!

So we just watch the French version with subtitles and all is well.

Actually, I don't think I care about ever "watching" M&C as a movie any more. These days I just use the DVD when I need a reference audio track.

I wonder what it would sound like if you stripped the English center channel and swapped it into the French DTS-HD MA track.

I imagine if you swapped the French LFE channel into the English track you wouldn't recover all of the low end. Unless someone knows where all of that <35Hz was placed.

Someone fluent in more advanced audio wizardry could probably swap out <50Hz on all channels and probably be ok with the vocals.

Swapping the English center for the French one can mostly work, but not all dialog comes from the center. Sometimes it can come from offscreen left or right or sometimes even from behind. There are also sometimes intentional echos if the setting calls for it. The echos would sound odd in French.

It is common for pirated Russion DVD's in 5.1 to be dubbed over by English center channels and it works to a varying degree. (So I've heard)

It would work better to dub the LFE from the DVD over the LFE from the Blu-Ray. Or else, The entire DVD sound could be dubbed over the Blu-Ray sound. You would give up lossless, but gain the full bottom.

I think in the French version they turn and run instead of fighting though.

That's what I was thinking, I guess it might work but would sound pretty strange at times.

If an LFE swap would solve it, you would source the French Blu-ray as it has French DTS-HD MA (assuming it's unfiltered like the French lossy track on the US BD).

The question then is whether the LFE channel contains the ULF or the main channels, or both.

Maybe someone could mux a copy with the French DTS-MA LFE track onto the English DTS-MA. Way beyond my skills but I'm sure someone like scubasteve could pull it off.

That much is easy enough, decode the DTS-HD MA into discrete WAV with eac3to, swap the LFE and either pack into LPCM or encode back into DTS-HD MA (requiring the DTS encoder of course).

What may be more difficult is if the missing ULF is in the main channels or both the mains and LFE.

Could you take just the center Channel out of the English and swap it with the french version?

Actually, the French version is yet a 3rd soundtrack, completely different from the English BR and original DTS DVD versions.

Here is the scene where Crowe is deafened by the cannonball hits on his ship. The French version has much more ULF to DC and a droning 4-6 Hz addition. Remember, I mic'd this, and was only good to 5 Hz back then. I can't find the direct-from-player screenshot, but it had content all the way down.

Sorry to interject in MC talk.

Just wanted to give a vote on Ep V on blu ray, at least 4.5 maybe looking like a possibility for a 5. These destroyer fly by scenes are full of nice LFE. Just half hour in and the quality of the audio seems better than Ep IV so far.

PS might have to buy MC to see what all the discussion in about.

I finally got a new sub, and can vouch that The Hulk definitely deserves a 5. The sequence with the sonic cannon scene (the whole part before and after too) is unreal!

A few votes......

Thor, 5 stars. Yeah I know about the 20hz filter, but this one still deserves a 5 for amount, variety and pure LFE output.....awesome!!

Star Wars OT.....4 stars. Amazing for films of this age, but pale in comparison to the better/best modern LFE tracks.

I agree that the Thor BD has great LFE but then my HT audio system is capable of reproducing bass frequencies down to "only" 18Hz.
