  1. R. I. P. Apologies for posting in the wrong section, was meant to be in general discussions.
  2. After some months I am realising that I am getting angrier and angrier because of such behaviour, that seems to have been much more common than I thought, as this is just one more occasion that I see. A once in a lifetime occasion for many of us became the occasion for few lucky ones to go for the double, which resulted in many of us not getting the chance to buy a ticket. So many attended both days, and that made impossible for many others to attend at all. There was no need to be that selfish really. It's free on Sat tv, 19,2 East, if you have a dish pointing in that direction (which I have :P).
  3. This is amazing! I have been looking for something like this for decades. Thank you. But I think the tempo of the Ark's theme shown here is too fast , maybe "=60" is the right number?
  4. Where can we get more info about this "theme collection"? Is it available anywhere?
  5. Can anybody help me understand please? I have ordered this on SAE on the 5th of May as well as with 3 more titles, none of them is out of stock, still the order is showing as "pending" . I have sent them an email yesterday and haven't received a response in more than 24 hours... Is that normal?
  6. I am in UK too, I placed my order 10 days ago on Silva Screen Entertainment and it is still in "pending" :(.
  7. It's real indeed: https://www.recordstore.co.uk/recordstore/Soundtracks-Compilations/Star-Wars-The-Force-Awakens-Cassette/583M0EB4000
  8. I finally got the chance to order this score from screenarchives.com, as well as Far and Away, The River and The 3cd edition of Roger Rabbit. After I placed the order, I noticed that this title is being sold by SA at a higher price ($24.99) than the Varese sarabande website ($19.99), while the other items are priced exactly the same price as their label websites: is that something these websites usually do? I thought that these big soundtrack websites used to apply the same prices across the web :(.
  9. I have been collecting original JW albums since 1993, and only within the last few years I have started ripping them all and upoading to my personal cloud (in wave 16 bits 44.1 Khz format to preserve the original sound quality). New albums are being released and with less space left on my shelves I have been wondering what the best way to store those cd's (and LP's) would be. So far I have gone for the alphabetical order. That doesn't seem to work any more: with the collection growing, a new cd will need me to move more and more previous albums to be put and kept in the right place. So I am now undecided between album release date or movie release date (i.e.: when that music has been composed): the first one would give a better picture of how the market has evolved through the years, as well as the technology behind each release. The second one would give a better picture of how Jw career has evolved. Another option, for the laziest, is to just add a new purchased cd after the previous one, which would reflect how the personal collections has evolved. If anyone has any more options feel free to add :).
  10. Hi The Lost Folio, your website and collection are really impressive. I am trying to find the Tony Esposito's arrangement of Superman folio, as well as the folios of the two Home Alone movies, but it seems that they are impossible to find, any clue? I also noted that about E.T folio you are referring to the 2002 edition as a reissue of the 1982, but I think you know it is a different presentation with more difficult arrangements. I am sad that Last Crusade never got a folio: I love the graal theme as well as a few others (luckily we got the scherzo for motorcycle and orchestra somewhere else). Do you also play? Any video of you playing any of those score? That would be really nice. Thank you for your work, it's a crucial source of information for all the collectors.
  11. Received it today, not from intrada. The cd was sealed but I have a hole in the barcode on the back, am I the only one? The case is fine.
  12. Thanks for the links to the videos. I don't have time to watch them now, although I read the English subtitles and I found some interesting bits which I think are most relevant to this conversation: 1:Audio and video are different indeed, although the principles behind video and audio digitization are the same. And that is the reason why the first link starts talking about audio sampling then talks about video sampling: 219 00:16:02,571 --> 00:16:08,798 One could think of video as being like audio but with two additional spatial dimensions, X and Y, 220 00:16:08,798 --> 00:16:12,787 in addition to the dimension of time. This is mathematically sound. 221 00:16:12,787 --> 00:16:19,097 The Sampling Theorem applies to all three video dimensions just as it does the single time dimension of audio. So it looks like I am not comparing apples and oranges after all. This comes from the video you posted. About your previous comment, here what your video says: 161 00:11:18,545 --> 00:11:25,100 Super-hi-fidelity sampling rates of 88, and 96, and 192kHz have also appeared. 162 00:11:25,100 --> 00:11:30,888 The reason for the sampling rates beyond 48kHz isn't to extend the audible high frequencies further. That bit covers your original comment: Are you saying you can hear sounds above the 20kHz range? Now if you want to say that there is no audible difference by sampling with a higher frequency than the current CD standard I can't say that I disagree. But I think it is pretty much the same as going from 4k to 8k in terms of visible difference (unless you are VERY close to the screen), even after the videos you posted (which seem to me to prove you wrong).
  13. To give yourself an answer, think about the gain the video quality gets when going from SD to fullHD, then from fullHD to 4k: that has nothing to do with the human seeing range, as that il was well covered even by svga. It's all about the amount of digital information used to create the sound (or the picture): the more info used the more detailed the sound and the pictures are.
  14. Sampling frequency is different than sound waves frequency.
