I was simply trying to answer someone’s question about the terms near-field and far-field mix. My point was that a near-field mix is created to sound better in a home. That’s all. 😃

Basically, as I understand it, a near-field mix is a remix of the theatrical audio for home theater. Near field because you’re near the speakers in a home theater, and in a far-field mix (i.e. a commercial theater) you aren’t. So, the Laserdisc audio is redone to sound better in a home, whereas the original optical track sounds better in a movie theater.

Thus I’d rather assume that it was in fact the LD audio which was originally created as the cinema master back then and not vice-versa. If they would have adjusted it to sound “good” on home theaters afterwards, normally that would have meant a reduction of dynamic range, not an increase as many nowadays low-end soundbar stuff (or worse) actually sound better with higher compressed sources. And given that it the mass market, no surprises here. However, the LaserDisc would predate that loudness-war era anyway so I wonder where the “near-field mix theory” comes from.

At least from what I’ve heard now, the optical track sounds like a decent attempt to reproduce the original master, however with all the limitations of these analog optical systems that time whereas the LD gives you the raw, dynamic deal.

Well, but you also put an assumption that the LaserDisc audio would have a near-field mix created to sound better at home.

And just in case I gave that impression unintendedly: I don’t know it any better for sure, so I am not claiming to know the truth here, just trying to get a discussion going to find it out.

Because from what I see and hear, and judging by the dynamics, the LaserDisc PCM track doesn’t feel like some compromised near-field mix to me so I would be interest why you guys apprently think so.

Fair enough. I’m actually not sure if the LD is a near-field mix or not. Someone earlier said it was, so I assumed that was correct. Either way, you’re right, it does sound great.

“This particular print was struck in 1993, so unfortunately it has the censored song lyric at the beginning”

Would anyone here use a lossless rip of original pressing of the soundtrack CD with the uncensored “arabian nights” lyric? to SoX resample to 48khz and replace that portion in the title sequence?

Dunno how multi-channel separation would work with a TrueHD or DTS-HD surround track for that brief section, but since this release is just in stereo I figured its worth a shot for posterity.

I don’t remember when it was but I actually did this with the LD pcm and edited in that one censored line then muxed it with my blu-ray file. Sounds great.

The amount of work you guys are doing to preserve these films to their original state is staggering. I hope to be able to download the results one day, and add them to my archive!

I hate to say it but it’s been nearly a year and I still can’t get a copy of this release. I saw Aladdin at Greater Union cinemas in Civic, Canberra when it was released and fell in love with it. To this day I have the original poster up in my computer room along with a collection of Aladdin toys, characters etc. The ‘release’ ins’t accessible so be sure to reply with ideas other than Blutopia. 😃

Would love to get BACK to Blutopia… I am a member that got banned while in my month away from my computer while moving, getting married, and going on my honeymoon.

It’s a shame that MySpleen wouldn’t allow this to be uploaded. They’re generally very scared of Disney’s litigious nature. I guess I don’tblame them.

Have been hoping for a Blutopia invite for a while, but I’m pretty sure it’s looked down upon to shill for an invite. But if anyone is feeling generous this holiday season… 😃

Will no one save Thanksgiving by sending a download link? What’s Thanksgiving without Aladdin and Jasmine and Genie and Iago???

I’ve been away for a bit and can’t believe myself it has been a year since this was released. Forgive me if this was ever addressed and I missed it but was this ever released through Usenet or is this just exclusive to blutopia still?
