I read over at the quadraphonicquad forums that the audio was really good but the mix, while immersive, was not very discrete (i.e., discrete being certain sounds coming primarily from a left rear or right rear speaker). What do you think?
If true it is very disappointing - IMO with all the upmixing choices we have such as PLII, NEO and even the homemade upmixes that are 'out there' that already can provide the immersive surround experience, the best option for surround if it is going to be offered as part of a release is the discrete type.
It's too late for me to cancel my order, so I'll be listening for myself in a few days (and selling it if it's not discrete) but was curious as to what others thought of this mix.
Discrete, Schmiscrete. Certain sounds coming from different speakers?
Uh, in my book it's about this:
Does the recording and mix portray what a group of musicians sound like performing together.
Whether this sound is partially "organic", partially a creation of the sound engineer, either, neither or both I don't care.
This recording, mix and master are superb.
Even on the hyper-anal Hoffman forum the biggest bitch from anyone is the packaging and the less than stellar CD mix\\mastering.
Cry me a f*king river.
Even the Vinylites are drooling.
This is the internet, there is always at least one retard that can't resist the compulsion to complain that not only didn't it have sprinkles but if they were to have put sprinkles on it, they would have been the wrong kind of sprinkles.
