The New Master List of BASS in Movies with Frequency Charts - Page 13

post #361 of 16108
Watched Daybreakers last night... Not anything to get crazy about but I think there were at least a few scenes with some decent LFE. Plus it wasn't a bad movie and overall the DTS MA track was pretty good.

Just to end this, I ran it again. It was clipping a little bit, but even with the level dropped the extension is still there. Clearly, my DVD has a lot more below 20Hz than yours does, or something else is up.



I'm going to go remove the old waterfalls so I can do them all like the above. Don't wait up for that... I have very little time for this.

I watched Knowing last night for the first time. On the list as a 4 star movie. It does not have a ton of instances of LFE but does have a few really nice moments. The final scene, in particular, of the world blowing up was spectacular.

Watched Red Cliff over the weekend - toward the end of part 2, the naval battle scene is just insane. Any else watch that one?
post #365 of 16108
Between a great movie, tense scenes and potentially great bass I wonder what this one is going to sound like?

Watched it long time ago before I had a ht system. As far as movies go it was okay, I liked part 1 better.

Avatar: Extended Edition (blu-ray, DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1) :


My vote, 3 stars, there's nothing that really stands out, those big spikes between 30hz and 40hz happen in like the first five minutes of the movie.

The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen (blu-ray, DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1)
:



My vote, 4 stars.

Definitely 5 stars

LFDH is more a 4-4.5 star movie for me... it has the freeway scene, but not too much else for demo material. I should watch it again.

Ah come on now you have the shootout scene in the apartment then the big explosion, the car flip in the tunnel and also when the electrical grid gets blown up which has sub 20 Hz info there.

This. Plus like every dramatic music hit has bass, iirc. Many of the assault rifles have some low end component. I remember the part where you see all the power going out having good bass. Dude, Wolf, there is a TON of parts in this that have bass. Did you fall asleep watching it or forget to turn on your sub?


Wow! Leto. Good call on LXG. I always thought that had good bass. Live Free definitely is proven and will stay on my list of best bass movies.

Indeed. Here's a waterfall from the apartment scene that I found posted by DrPainMD from the old thread:

More likely that was before I discovered the big leak in the Tang Band tapped horn. Like I said, I should watch it again

Did anyone else see that Jurassic Park trilogy is going to be released as 7.1 on blu ray? Something tells me they are going to have a great LFE track.
post #377 of 16108
Yeah! Sounds cool to me but I sure hope they don't f**k up the bass for the first one....lol or ANY of them.

I think john mcclane's handgun have lowest bass(under 10hz), in die hard 4.

Sucker punch extended cut have little stronger level in bass than theatrical cut and of course more action with bass.

I could do them for the theatrical blu-ray trilogy. Won't have the extended blu-ray trilogy any time soon.

That's cool with me.

Think sucker punch is a rent or buy? Contemplating picking it up tomorrow.

Good for eye candy, not much anything else imo. The audio was average for Sucker Punch at my local cinema and that place is usually a good indicator for the translation to home viewing.

I feel the same way.

If someone has a link for a SpecLab tutorial capturing completely digitally (software player), I'd like to do some waterfalls of the Jurassic Park LaserDisc DTS (1536kbps) I have so we can compare with the Blu-ray when released. The DVDs only had 768k DTS and don't sound nearly as good.

I would rent first.

Seems rent is unanimous haha. Would have hoped for better from Snyder.

1. Download speclab and install it. http://www.qsl.net/dl4yhf/spectra1.html

2. You need a movieplayer that can play that laserdisc.

3. Open speclab, go to options ---- speclab display settings. Have a checkmark next to Optimum Waterfall Average, Show Spectrum as Bargraph, Amplitude Grid, Peak Holding Graph, and set the Show dropdown menu option to both plot right. Uncheck automatic waterfall scroll interval and make the interval 60ms. For the waterfall time grid uncheck automatic and make the interval 10 sec.

4. Go to the next tab and set amplitude range to -75 - 0 db. Go to FFT tab and set decimate input to 64 and fft input size to 1024.

5. Go to Audio I/O tab and set soundcard sample rate to 48000.

6. On speclab main screen at top left, set the frequency range to min 0hz and max 120hz. Click on the color scale and choose something with a dynamic scale, I'm liking the second option 'BlackRedGreenBlueViolet'.

7. You're almost all set. When you play an audio file you should see waterfalls. Now what you want to make sure is that you have the volume as high as it can go without clipping. What I do is I use the freeware program Goldwave (http://www.goldwave.com/index.php) and record while i'm playing an audio file. It has a vu meter at the top right that gives you a red clipping indicator if you are clipping. My version of goldwave is 5.25, but newer ones might work too.

So set the volume to a level that clips during a loud action scene, you will know it is clipping when the vu meter lights up a red circle at the right of the vu meter. Then go down in volume until you see the volume bars not hit the max markers, then right click on the vu meter and blank it, and then reopen the vu meter by right clicking it again and choosing vu meter.

Now play the source file again and see if it clips. If it doesn't and you think this is the loudest action scene then you are all set to record proper waterfalls.

The Fifth Element (blu-ray, PCM 5.1)


I agree with its score of 3 stars.
