Requests / Re: Puccio Roelens - Research Of Sound (Edipan SML 102)

Greta, you've piqued my interest. I have the 2021 Sounds From Screen re-issue on vinyl. I just had a quick listen with this in mind and I can tell right away that sadly this record was cut from the same "overly brickwall limited" digital master. It sounds dynamically as flat as a pancake.

I've worked on quite a few remastering projects over the years and I can probably shed some light on this....

Unfortunately starting in the late 90s there was a trend to make everything as loud as possible due to these new digital limiters that had become available, much to the detrement of the music though. It didn't matter if it destroyed the dynamics, the record labels wanted hot masters and so as a mastering engineer, you had better deliver them that way!

As a result many records were sonically destroyed in the remastering process. The original tapes would be transferred to digital and then the destruction would begin. Unfortunately the original raw transfer of the tapes (pre mastering) would usually be lost by the labels (they didn't have the foresight to keep them) so only the loud version remains to this day, and that's probalby because it probably got pressed to CD.

Often with smaller labels the original analogue tapes were ditched after they got transfered. So here we are 20 years later  with more knowledge and respect for these incredble recordings, but all that exists to cut a new vinyl version from are the tastelessly, overly loud mastered wav files from 200?. You'd be surprised and maybe shocked to know how many vinyl re-issues are made from files derived from a CD (16/44). I know because I've worked on some!

All to say, that's what I'm assuming has happened with this record. If you could find someone with a good rip of the 1976 Edipan version, I think that would be you're only hope in this case, as it would not have been subjected to the digital limiters that became available much later on.

Hi Greta.

Just checked the APM version of splash down in cool edit pro (now Adobe Audition) and it is exactly the same waveform.  :(
Thank you Tony, this is incredibly generous of you  ;D

Library music used in Japan

It's very hard to find.

but my interest is not in the game.

But my interest is not in games, it's in Japanese pornographic movies, anime and radio dramas.

They use a lot of Japanese libraries

A lot of them don't offer demos, you have to buy the CDs.

I've bought over 50 CDs this year from various Japanese library music companies.

As of today, I still have some that I haven't found the source for.

But they don't seem to use CML MUSIC.

Instead, they use their own libraries.

Ah! Thanks for the finding Chun! You're the best! ;D ;D ;D

By the way, i see there hasn't been many replies since found.

All I have to say is that I've heard this music and I own it.

That proves that I definitely have it.

It's just that I have a lot of music on my computer, and sometimes it's not easy to find.

Like this one, Aurora. I always remembered it as regular music.

Then I remembered it was part of the News Music Package.

And it's only a 10-second demo.

If you want the full video, you might have to contact 615 Music.

Or News Music Now.
