Looks good! Would it be possible to share it here via a MEGA link with a password, for instance? Since we’re not all on blutopia/myspleen…

All donors will have access to preliminary versions via private distribution channels, and the final project will be released on the spleen and one or two other private spots that users around here are likely to have access to. Beyond that, I can explore other options, but we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it.

I wonder if anyone can sync the Goldeneye Laserdisc’s 2.0 PCM Track to this scan? That would be a great alternative to the Optical track (i’m not sure if the scanning facility is equipped with Dolby SR Noise reduction, the Optical track would sound a lot better if it was applied!!)

The optical track is in Russian, but there is the theatrical dts audio available.

Just out of curiosity… as I know efforts are made to include as many audio tracks as possible for these release… (and speaking as someone who has yet to donate to the project…) . Are there plans to include the DTS track from the LD release as well as the 2.0 track?

The current planned audio is the Cinema DTS audio as well as the optical Russian audio from the print. Other audio tracks are being worked on as well.

Also, the plan is to sync the project to the Blu-ray if possible, so that anyone can sync his/her favorite audio track to the release.

I have acquired the 1997 DVD of Goldeneye which has the Original Theatrical mix (from what I read online, the mix on the UE DVD and the Blu ray is a different mix) as well as the 2 channel Dolby Pro Logic Stereo Surround Mix (Most likely the same mix used on the 35mm Optical Dolby SR track) When I get the time I will upload both tracks to mediafire if anyone is interested

Sounds great! I wonder if the theatrical mix on this disc is the same as the mix on the LaserDisc?

Be aware that early home video releases of GoldenEye have the level for the LFE channel set incorrectly. After recently having done some careful subwoofer calibration on my system, including room equalization with a miniDSP 2x4 HD, I can confidently state that the bass is absurdly loud and totally unbalanced.

I have compared the special edition DVD and the ultimate edition, and the early release just sounds ridiculous. It’s obviously wrong, the low end overwhelms everything on the old release, while the newer version is correctly balanced. The LFE itself is exactly the same effects, they just haven’t been boosted to crazy levels on the ultimate edition. I haven’t measured exactly how much the difference is, but I’d estimate it’s probably around 6 dB, which is quite a lot.

The old version may sound okay if you’re not using Audyssey Dynamic EQ, which boosts subwoofer levels to compensate for the Fletcher-Munson curves (ie, the decreasing ability of human hearing to clearly perceive bass at lower listening levels), but only the new version sounds correct when the correct frequency balance is restored in the room.

If anyone is able to send me the theatrical mix from the DTS CD-ROM’s, I would love to give it a direct comparison to the existing home video releases.

Thanks for those, though I don’t think posting links here is within the rules. You should probably delete those links here.
