If I buy the Tron soundtrack CD (Daft Punk i think), would it go down to 20 Hz like movie?
I am not sure what CDs are supposed to go down to: 20 Hz or even less?
Same question for movie scores like Dark Knight (Hans Zimmer), Gladiator etc

thanks

 

I know on the Tron Legacy Sound Track that Disc Wars has strong content at 20hz.

Thanks. I will buy Tron CD and rip to WAV. I actually like the music - lots of bass.

Also I just finished Elysium, cant say enough good things about it. These guys did everything right. Guaranteed to rock the htib AND the single digit system.
Easily makes my top 5 favorite bass movies of all time.


heres some graphs from the second half enjoy. smile.gif

I couldn't wait.. I watched WWZ, IM3, and AE. With my current dual SC Ref's. Yea, that grenade and heli crash in WWZ was pretty insane. IM3 no comment. AE was kind of boring IMO. I was going to save this titles to watch till my quad S2's arrives in a few weeks. But I just needed something to watch with the family on this 3 day holiday weekend. Btw, I also picked up TLM 3D bluray copy. Watched it with the family. And to my surprise there was quite a few LFE in there also. Don't know how low it went though. My daughter really like this movie..
post #11107 of 16113
loved WWZ sound effects - even first 30 seconds with animated distributor logos has cool LF
IM3 sounded just ok

Also, bought Inception original score (Hans Zimmer) CD and there is crazy bass - orchestra etc

Elysium looks promising

But by far Gravity is at top of my list - CANT WAIT !!!

95% on Tomatometer

I heard an interesting comment from someone regarding 'gravity'. It was, "I really hope you like hearing Sandra Bullock talk". Still looking forward to it since at 90 minutes it wouldn't take many long sequences and effects to keep it interesting.

I have a miniDSP 10x10HD pulling sub eq duties. The mini has capability to establish 4 separate house curves. Once established, it's a breeze to teach the Harmony using the mini's IR function.

Anybody got any Pacific Rim subwoofer stories?

I'm at a loss of words...this is by far the best, most intense bass movie I've ever seen/heard in my life!
Just finished watching it in 3D and in 7.1.
I've never heard so much bass in any movie...I don't even know what to compare it to!
I watched at -2 on the master volume and the bass at +12DB hot...

I doubt you'll be disappointed...everything with so much bass.
Every door that closes, every latch that closes = MAJOR BASS!
A couple of pretty intense sweeps...my favorite is the steps of those robots! WOW!

I wish they made more movies this way!
I wish they make a sequel
Never had so much stuff move around the house this way.

Sorry if I sound really excited and completely blown away! (I AM!)

Guys, you're going to enjoy it...I was also very impressed by the quality and there are some spectacular 3D scenes!



Kemiza- Heres one if you have not seen it already lol

Was it worth the extra to get Pacific Rim in 3D?

Pacific Rim isn't worth buying. It's basically just loud (maybe the loudest overall track ever) and droning bass with no variation for the entire duration of the movie. There are pitiful dynamics as a result - remember, dynamics aren't just about being loud. Also, it is filtered exactly as shown on the early graphs. It has nothing below about 25Hz.

Ashi777:

Many of these graphs, provided by various and sundry people, are taken from rips or web-based downloads, obtained either from file sharing sites or itunes downloads from other regions. While they will basically never show content that isn't going to be on the retail discs, they do sometimes omit content that is on the retail discs. They're generally reliable, but not definitively.

Thanks Nube. Are you going to post the PR results on db? Any differences between the 5.1 and 7.1 tracks for low end or otherwise? What other track on blu ray would you compare PR to if you had to?

I am really curious to hear this track tom.

I think maxmercy will be posting results @ Data-Bass. My GF and I couldn't even make it thru the whole movie because it is such a boring mix, although I subsequently rewatched the entire thing. There's no discernable difference between the 5.1 and 7.1 lossless tracks other than a minor difference in overall levels attributable to the extra two channels.

I honestly can't compare it to any other movie's mix at the moment because my brain is fried after 13hrs at school.

To late I purchased it already biggrin.gif

Does the soundtrack exhibit any form of clipping or is it just loud , and when you say droning bass is it one note. Also is there a good slam factor?

Your GF said... "Wow babe, is it me or is this audio mix boring?"

Maybe I just don't have a great imagination, but I would never guess that a woman would be disappointed with the "audio mix" of a movie with monsters and robots beating each other up for an hour and a half. Did the plot if the movie have anything to do with her lack of interest?

Are guys pursuing the same PhD or something?

I completely enjoyed PR in 3D, there are some spectacular 3D scenes in this movie.
It is very well done (Video) and yes it is very, very loud! This movie is about monsters trying to destroy themselves.
These monsters are bigger than the tallest buildings. How could this not be loud?
I completely enjoyed the pounding...the none stop pounding in this movie.
I take it that listening to this movie on the hot side is a must! For me every movie is worth listening on the hot side!
There's a reason why I have multiple subs. (Note: speaking for me)

I also thought the movie was filtered but that did not take away my complete enjoyment of it.
The science guys can say what they like and that's fine by me. Making fun at someone who enjoys something is...you know!

As they say to each there own...right?
You know there's alot of movies to watch out there...choice and taste is a beautiful thing.

Some people will agree with me and some won't...nothing wrong with that at all wink.gif

Now looking forward to Superman cause there's supposed to be major action in that movie too.

Carry on...

I was disappointed with Pacific Rim as well. I was really expecting it to be Cloverfield on steroids, but it wasn't even close. Charlie Hunnam makes Channing Tatum look like Oscar material to make it even worse.
post #11127 of 16113
Now you see me:
Decent mix. Nothing special. Lousy illogical movie with crappy ending. Weak 4 star

The iceman:
Awesome. Full range, lots of dynamics. Perfectly mixed to enhance what happened on screen. Movie was so-so. Solid 4.5stars

This is the end:
Better then I expected. Decent use of LFE but nothing demo worthy. Weak 4 star

The heat: No idea. Enjoyed the movie though.

Pacific rim:
Loud harsh monotonous droning. Never stopped but the same effect is used again and again and again. Filtered but fairly loud. Disliked the movie, disliked the audio. Loved the video. Not as bad as STID but then again, what is..

White house down:
Nowhere close to OHF but it was atleast a bit entertaining. Didn’t notice the LFE.

Monster university:
Finally something worth watching! Together with Oblivion (and WWZ) this has been the movie experiences of the year for me so far. Loved the movie and the soundtrack was very smooth and not fatiguing at all. Listen at reference which is a bit hotter then I usually listen. Some nice effects when the dean of the uni appears but Im not sure if the LFE was filtered or not since I was fully enveloped in the story. MU has the same sound design that Monsters Inc did with surprise LFE effects with really good dynamics.

Nope. At one time, I think I mentioned that I used to work in a portion of the industry and have a few contacts. She's one of them.

She used to work for Full Sail University, and knows most of the big mixing studios and many of the mixers we revere. She's way into this stuff. wink.gif

Edit: As for Pacific Rim, I'm sure it's just me/us that found it boring - I tend toward hyper critical evaluations of entertainment stuff. I have no doubt a lot of people will like it and find it entertaining and worth buying for completely legit reasons.

You are one lucky dude! My wife is not remotely interested but she does like Tom Cruise so Oblivion at reference it is! I liked PR as it is, a new Godzilla like movie. I guess the sound will be exactly like the IMAX experience which was very loud 22hz bass and up which was enjoyable and one of the best IMAX sound experiences but they never go below that. Missed opportunity for sure but if it still sounds like the IMAX I will like it. I am easy to please!

Are the reviews coming in on Pacific Rim, blu ray reviews or streaming reivews.? I read one review on here that the clip lights never shut off on the amps? I mean who is telling the truth here? I picked up my BR copy also picked up a Hijacking due to high ratings on rotten tomatoes. Just waiting on my Triax's to get here this afternoon. smile.gif
