Slightly OT but a lot of you really seem to like the storm effects in AIL. Years back we had a thread on thunder sounds and I still have this site bookmarked.

Obviously this works better for those with HTPCs but I believe you can download the WAV files for free.

Some of these are really well done and have a lot of DR so start out low!

Ditto. Wanted to watch Open Water, but I like to scuba dive occasionally. So that's out.

Well, I watched as much of BHD as I could make it through. I did get to watch the Irene scene. I'm not flat to 20hz nor calibrated by REW. I did feel the LFE and some shaking was going on.

Bought AL:VH for $7 today and thought it was pretty good. Had some good bass throughout I felt coincided with the action well.

My buddy dragged me along to MovieStop since he was getting me his "deal" for Thor 2, though just the 3d disk in a nonfactory case, it was $6! Got $10 off Gravity 3d, Hobbit 3d combo for $15 and Cloverfield for $7, both used. Plus an extra 10% off of each I bought since I decided to join.

If you like your blurays on the cheap and don't mind buying used, check them out. Think I'm going to start going through the DVDs we never watch and start trading them in.

Yep, pretty much, but with even less content under 30hz.

Just finished Gravity and what a bass monster it is.

There is some wicked ~20hz action in a few parts. Specifically, I'd like to see the sequence charted when they are first radioed that the Russian satellite has been hit. At that point a strong sustained ~20hz content goes on for about a minute or so somewhat pulsing in and out. Obviously part of the score. Pretty cool!

Several other parts too! Some parts that were real strong, deep but short. Quite literally blowing my hair back. Tons of fun! biggrin.gif

My Dual 18" LLT subs 120dB down to 10hz

Gravity is on my list for tomorrow's flick.  Is it a movie the whole family can watch?  10 and up?

Lol, yes really! I would never exaggerate in this thread. Well, I guess I could but that doesn't help anyone.

I doubt my hair actually got "blown back" but there was a deep transient or two that did give my hair quite a shake. MKtheater knows what I am on about. cool.gif

Well, just finished Thor 2, and I can say this...

The upstairs resident came pounding on their floor for me to turn it down. Twice.

They didn't do that when I watched Ender's Game. At all.

I'm picking up Gravity 3D tomorrow. It'll be a good movie for me and the wife on Friday. Good to hear it had a little bass in it as well.

Thanks for the Gravity report. Looking forward to it whenever my 3d rental arrives (next week from the looks of it).

I get the hair movement at times even with my relatively humble sub setup. cool.gif My question is what frequency causes the hair movement? I wonder this every time it happens, but have never actually tried to find out.


Watched Rush tonight. Great film and great overall audio. LFE supported the film well, but to me was nothing to write home about at the same time.

Upper 20's probably. Obviously at high SPL level. This is key.

That's a good thing as far as I'm concerned after just rewatching the first and gaining a new level of respect ! the addition of ELF down to 10hz along with solid 15-30hz ! Is something I must hear cool.gif

Can someone do a Spec-Lab graph on Thor 2? From 29:02 - 29:06 timeframe? There's something going on there. I got some seismic vibrations but nothing audioable.

I watched Thor 2 and there are a few scenes that had good bass effect, but nothing demo worthy. I also thought the movie sucked.

Watched Gravity last night and ended up turning my subs down considerably. I started to get tired of the thumping sounds when they were in their suits. It really seemed to me that the bass levels were too high in comparison to the rest of the soundtrack. I do run my subs a bit hot but this was a whole different level.

That was probably it then. Nice catch, btw.

Reminds me of a similar bass transient from Phantom Menace during the podrace. There is a nice bass 'WHOOOOMP' when Anakin's pod flies by the camera in one part.

Way back when, me and my hippy hair really enjoyed that. tongue.gif

I need to watch my 3D version of this. Wait, it will be 4D with the bass. I know it is subjective but how is the movie?
