Hello there everyone! As some may remember, I GOUT synced the PSB 16mm soundtrack and I can confirm that there are actual pretty substantial changes made to the Mono mix in Empire. Off the top of my head:
“The first transport is away” line is different and plays a second later than in the stereo mix.
The hidden stormtrooper that shoots 3pO is differently voiced.
Yoda shrieks differently when Luke first points his blaster at him ("…like we’re being watched!").
There is added 3PO dialogue in the Carbon Freezing Chamber.
So unlike Jedi, which really just seems to be a re-leveled folddown, Empire is the real deal.
In any case I don’t mind GOUT syncing this latest 16mm mix for posterity’s sake. I already talked to Catbus about it but I’d just need the wav files from Puggo whenever he gets the chance…and I’m traveling it up until around the 20th of August. So don’t get too excited lol.
