I listen all my music in that way, and it sounds like heaven to me, but what do you mean by low bit MP3s?



Many users of I-tunes would import their music at the lowest bit rates in order to squeeze in more music, but at a decrease in sonic quality.

so,it's not 320 kbps mp3 files?


I had to specifically set my ITunes account to import music at 320 Kbps- the default setting is much lower, and most people I'm sure don't know to change it

WOW EIGHT PAGES OF BLATHER

And no one heard the milliseconds difference of silence BETWEEN tracks on the Remaster??? hmmm (Obviously does not apply to the non-stop tracks)

,

You did not know that mastering includes the silent parts?


I feel that the pauses between tracks are different (longer).

Could Josh be invited for an interview about the remaster project. I don't blame him for the brickwalling as Prince has been doing this on his digital releases for many years.

We know he didn't think much of digital music.

I kind of picked up on the longer pauses between the songs too. Maybe only by a few milliseconds here and there but it's noticable.

I was dropping my finger to "conduct" the next song, and it was off!

So when I listened to disc 1 the first time 3 weeks ago or so, I did so on my computer or phone via Spotify. I noticed a bit of a difference on TBO, the track has more depth on the remaster, and a slight difference on LGC. Other than that, it sounds the same as the original.

.

While at the supermarket, literally 30 minutes ago, I listened to the remastered tracks 1 through 5 and part of WDC via my iPhone with headphones. It sounds virtually the same as the original, except for the slight changes on TBO and LGC.

.

When I drove home from the supermarket, I listened to part of WDC as well as all of IWD4U and part of BIAS on the car stereo (iPhone via cassette tape adapter). I quickly heard a noticeable difference on these 3 tracks, namely that the percussion is clearer or more emphasized on the tracks. I have listened to the original PR many times on my car stereo and I don't remember hearing the percussion as clearly as I heard today on the remastered version. I'm not sure how I feel about the change. The more noticeable percussion started to get on my nerves just a little bit once I got to BIAS.

.

Do others notice the difference in the percussion when listening to the remaster on a car stereo?

Didn't Prince himself do/guide and approve this remastering of Purple Rain?

Didn't his ears suffer from his decades in the music business?

This dude that did the remaster (with P'd approval) wasn't actually known as a remastering dude.

So why without further discussion ignore the graphs that have shown the lack of dynamics?

The measurements that accompany the graphs tell the same.

.

This release is just a reason for WB to do a proper remaster in a few years time to correct the dynamics problem.
