Hi there is a Real good Copy Both an imaginary Q8 and SQ LP version of Animals going around since Christmas?? here is what was written about this version:


Music : Rock : Lossless
There were so many bad news this year. So maybe as a light of hope
I want to give this special Xmas gift to you all out there.

Once there were plans to offer an official quadraphonic version of
ANIMALS as SQ-LP (Columbia JCQ-34474) and as Q8-tape (CAQ-34474).
Although they never saw the light of day, the rumours went on and on that some
tapes have still survived. After years of wait and hope people tried to make their own.

So you can find a lot of Animals upmixes out there.
Some are quiet good (Area 51) – some are not (BWHI).
So let’s see what we have here:

PINK FLOYD - ANIMALS - QUADRAPHONIC DOUBLE FEATURE
(Q8 & SQ VERSION + BONUS FEATURE)

This needs some explanation: Most people (and the Pink Floyd fans too)
know just the common Animals version (LP, CD …) but there were
Q8 versions (in stereo!) too. The hardcore-collectors know about the difference.
On the Q8 tapes the two parts of “Pigs On The Wing” are bridged by a
special guitar solo for continuous run of the Q8 tape. The solo itself was played
by Snowy White instead of Gilmour!!
As far as I know this version was never upmixed properly.
So you will get here:
ANIMALS with full separation quadraphonic sound.
ANIMALS as an imaginary Q8-tape quadraphonic version
(with Snowy White bridge solo in between “Pigs On The Wing”).
ANIMALS as an imaginary SQ-LP quadraphonic version
(with the normal track sequence and without the solo)
ANIMALS bonus feature with all 3 quadraphonic bridge solo versions of
“Pigs On The Wing” – upmixed from
UK-Q8 tape
US-Q8 tape
Snowy White’s Gold Top CD.
ANIMALS as a quadraphonic DVD-Audio with full 3-page menu and cover pictures.

The stereo sources were sliced to 6 mono channels with Plogue.
Then all of the channel’s mono waves were carefully remastered separately
‘cause the original remaster CD sources were over-compressed.
The source was the Japan Cardsleeve Remaster CD.
The bridge solo in the first mix is sourced from Snowy White’s Gold Top CD.
In the first moments this DVD-Audio sounds like a mono version – so be patient –
then the sound wave will swash over you
I’ve got still plans to do the normal version once again – then sourced from a professional vinyl transfer.
But that’s another story.

This project is dedicated to John from Canada!

DVD-Audio only !!!
No DVD-Video content !!!
No DTS content !!!

Caution for the nitpickers:
The are some small tiny crackles in the mix which are barely listenable
if you play it loud - and you should do!
These crackles were in the source already



If you would like to get it PM me!!

and let me know once you get it let me know what you think of it. I thought it was AWESOME!! It is really an upmix but sounds Very Discrete..

I have Been looking for signs of a REAL Q8 or SQ LP copy but they seem to NOT exist?? I guess if Someone Had A Copy of a Real Quadraphonic copy it would have been converted already.. I know if there was a copy it would go for BIG Bucks On Ebay..I relise the was Never an Official Release but perhaps there is a few Pre Released version that where handed out to the Companys CEO's or sometihng..

EDIT: I did NOT do this conversion

Got this one down last night and just got through listening to it. It is quite good, would like a little more bass (but this was just after listening to the Fleetwood Mac Rumours DVDA which in contrast has tons of punchy dynamic bass, so may be a little unfair assessmrnt LOL) but all in all "Animals" has a very nice surround mix. I am really thankfull to all who are bringing these fine quad mixes into the 21st century world of SURROUND MUSIC for us all to hear...kudos to all!

I previewed it last night too but I thought there was too much bass! I don't quite understand the two different sources. They don't sound too much different from one another but I just previewed it and didn't really listen to the whole album yet.

We don't discuss such details on AVS. You just have to Google around and find it, or find one of the discussion boards that doesn't mind such topics.

An old post, but I'm interested in any Pink Floyd/Led Zeppelin quad conversions any of you may have done. I appreciate it's been a while, but hoping you're still around and able to provide a download link or torrent.
Thanks in Advance
