  1. Was FOTR EE tinted to look like TTT and ROTK? Sorry if you explained all this. It's Monday morning where I'm at.
  2. Interesting, so is there a "correct" or "preferred" version generally? First time I'm hearing of this somehow. I've only ever really lseen the EEs though (except ROTK TE in theaters).
  3. Hey folks, has anybody edited a "common-sense complete" version of the Hobbit scores? A truly "complete every single note" version would be a super janky listening experience (I know this as I have listened to the film rips before, they have tons of micro-edits), but has anybody produced a "pretty good" nearly complete fanedit of the score combining official OST release + film music? I was doing this a couple years ago and got partway into DOS but life caught up with me and I never finished. Just curious if somebody has done it since then.
  4. I did my own edit of the commercial release(s) + film music, and that alone was pretty epic.
  5. Ah, ok. So then, what would make me hear more stuff on vinyl, vs CD or mp3?
  6. Haha folks. Serious questions here. I know basically nothing about any of this. I know that vinyl deteriorates over time, so that's not what I meant by "lossless." Maybe the right word is "uncompressed." I'm just trying to understand why I'm hearing more instruments, and learn a bit in the process. Not trying to be a moron.
  7. Finally got my turntable today - a $65 Victrola turntable from Walmart. Not the best quality ever, but it's all I can afford at the moment until I get a U-Turn table down the road. I noticed that despite being hard of hearing (can't hear super high frequencies well), and also not noticing anything "open" or "airy" about the audio sound, I seem to hear more instruments/sounds in the music itself that I don't remember, despite having heard the whole thing hundreds of times. Could this have anything to do with the fact that I've only ever listened to the music on mp3 conversion from CD, or YouTube? (Is vinyl lossless?) Would love thoughts on all this.
  8. Maybe stupid question, but Jim how do you know all this? Were you involved in the scoring process? Also what "two-film cut" of Unexpected Journey? I did not know there was such a thing.
  9. This is probably the most worthy fan-project that can possibly come out of the LOTR world. This must happen.
  10. Yes! And - "Beyond the Forest" from DOS is, without question, a song for a late-fall, early December, chilly, overcast, day, accompanied with a side of introspection. My wife and I started a thing of watching LOTR once a year in December/January or so. We just moved into a slightly larger house that actually has the room for a big screen, so we'll have to get a 50" and a 5.1 system before too long.
  11. Classic đŸ˜‚ Purchased - immediately. My TTT is out for delivery today, so I'm super stoked about that.
