  1. CE3K and ET complete by LaLaLand?! NICE!!! Releases like these are what get me to dust off my old profile and sign in for a "YES!!!!"
  2. Nice! We now have another unreleased JW score off the list in Pete 'n' Tillie. Is there anything in the S&I Isolated Blu-ray score that isn't on the CD or vice versa? I skimmed through the thread quickly so I may have missed it if someone mentioned it already. If there isn't, it will save me time of having to record the music track on CD for my JW shelf. I got the S&I Blu-ray and didn't crack it open yet (In fact, I got two by mistake, so if anybody wants one for cost, let me know).
  3. I edited it. Feel bad, but we can thank him for other great work he's put in.
  4. Thanks, Jay. Yep, I made those crude rips just using the OST CD, a DVD with 5.1 analog outs, an analog stereo mixer, analog mixer and a MD recorder! No WAV editing or anything, as I didn't know how to do that then (I can now, but I edit very little of anything due to these modern expanded releases usually being pretty close to perfect or a fellow JWFan sending me his edit quicker than I can manage). Crude indeed by the standards of even rudimentary computer work let alone what a studio can do. They lasted for a few years and got their use, but as you said, many improvements came over the years. All can be put to rest now... this set is going to rock. And I try to stick around, but usually if there isn't a great new release out, I have nothing much to say and then I don't login as much as I'd like to. Off of work for a week too, which enables me to get some free time to log in as well. And Neil wasn't a part of this one? I thought I saw his name on it. Maybe because his name is on so many of these releases, I THOUGHT I saw it, haha. I can still keep the thanks in for his usual efforts on many of these releases, then.
  5. Me too. Hate it every time, grit my teeth a little bit. It works for the mainstream audience, but the music intended and unused is superior. Overwhelming parts of the audiences don't buy film scores and have no idea the music intended for that scene. It is an example of what I mean though... it works, but many agree they should have not tracked that when the intended music worked so great anyways. Both JP and TLW suffer from tracked parts. In the film, sure, it works, but the intended music would've been better.
  6. Yes, there are moments when tracked music works. Even in TPM, or even in ESB. But usually I prefer the music as-intended, especially in the case of complete scores. Unless the as-intended music is so utterly bad/boring that the tracked stuff works better. Unsure if I remember the intended music for that particular scene.... It's that bad right now? Wow. The USD is working pretty good for me... buying a few things from Japan at the moment means I get a break for a change. It has been terrible for years now.
  7. As long-time JWFans know (many probably forgot me), I dust off my old JWFan profile to join in the glee at such glorious releases such as these. And as many remember, while JP complete will be fun but not a hell of a lot of extras. It is TLW complete is what I've always wanted, as it is the most tracked and worst edited John Williams/Spielberg movie - unusual for Spielberg, as he usually trusts Williams' instincts and sometimes edits the score to the music. This was a rare aberration from his usual methods, as the main themes were clumsily tracked into some of the film's highlights and ruined the entire movie, IMO. It's tracked worse than TPM! Had to listen to my old, crude DVD rips to enjoy it, and crude they were. To have it complete and in chronological... outside of truly complete and chronological Star Wars scores, this was up there near the top. Expanded Rescuing Sarah? Any and all missing music in the dino-chase sequences? Ludlow's Demise properly placed? Oh man... this will get a LOT of play! Thank you Michael M., and co.! Already know it's going to be as close to perfection as humanly possible on a CD set release. Can't wait for it!
  8. I saw it for the 2nd time myself tonight and I'm impressed some of you can pick all that out in the theatre. Sometimes hard to tell with dialog and sound effects. I recognized a LOT more in this 2nd viewing (of course, I didn't have either version of the score when I saw it the 1st time). Definitely more enjoyable being familiar with the OST CD and the FYC promo. Can we have a list that includes all music from both placed in an easy-to-edit order, complete with alternates tacked on at the end? That's kind of what I want to listen to more than cut up everything perfectly chronological (with incomplete cues, it's always jarring). I always tend to listen to it that way until we have a definitive complete/almost complete version that exists for us. I don't mind editing together, but I still want everything (even if, like I said, we need alternates at the end).
  9. I think I didn't hear a lot of these little cues in the movie because on opening night, every time an Original Trilogy character showed up on screen, a large chunk of the audience clapped, cheered, hooted and hollered as if cheering a live sports team or a live, in-house performance. Couldn't hear the movie for several seconds. Usually why I prefer watching movies with just a handful of people I know; i.e. friends and/or family. Planning on taking my brother in the next day or so with a small, afternoon audience that hopefully won't give an inanimate object film a standing ovation.
  10. According to Facebook that Michael Trig guy only lives a 3 hour drive from me. Perhaps I'll pay him a visit and extract the info from his skull like Kylo Ren. And fail like Kylo Ren did.
  11. I agree 100%. That's why I think that the possibility of it being one of Snoke's other scenes (possibly an unused alternate?) is strong. Does anybody remember where his other scenes were in the chronological order? I've only seen the movie once and before I had either version of the score. I'd put it in as one of those other scenes.
  12. I was wondering this as well, because it's not a typical full-blown "Concert arrangement". It's unremarkable, yet dark and ominous, as if it is underscore for one of Snoke's small scenes. If it is a full concert arrangement, then Snoke's theme may me the most unremarkable ever. At least for a main bad guy. Then again, Emperor's Theme didn't come out until ROTJ, and the ominous underscore during his Empire scene was abandoned in favor of it. Also, in trying to make my version combining the best of both, is the Spreadsheet everything or are there differences not represented when you follow that? For example, do we have minor edits to get the best of both worlds or "alternates" in cases of too many edits for most of us casual layman editors to attempt?
  13. I believe in the world of writing, it can be called truncated? Sometimes many may go unnoticed until you get the whole piece and note the missing parts. Often unimportant, sometimes you can't believe it was taken out.
  14. True. I hear the differences but since we only had the OST for a couple days before we got this, I hadn't memorized it yet and the new music is harder to pick out to me than a score I have memorized more. So I appreciate that some of these guys got it down to the note. I tried putting the 1st track in a WAV editor and got exhausted by the daunting task. Talk about micro-edits. Wow. Is anybody here planning on doing a full micro-edit? Or is everyone doing partial selection ones?
  15. Wow... see all this stuff must be straightened out before I try an edit. LOL, I'd get so frustrated to make an edit and then miss stuff or just finish and BOOM a higher bitrate promo surfaces. Keep up the collective great work, guys! And about the sound quality... to me the low bitrate mp3s muffle the fidelity to the point of sounding like I put cotton in my ears, which is why I'm not crazy about them and holding out for higher bitrate versions. They sound good for the bitrate, but still we lose a lot of information. Meanwhile, I felt like the CD was mixed a little flatter than some (and it also sounded flat in the movie theatre), but at least it's clear. Many CDs are mixed to basically peg out as much as possible without clipping (like KM mentioned above), but at least it sounds very nice on my home theatre. Seems like not as dynamic though.
