The Audio Preservation Thread

Author
Time
 (Edited)

Hey Everyone, 

        I noticed that a few people around here are are trying to preserve old soundtracks from laserdiscs and then sync them to the latest Blu-rays. I thought it might be nice to have a sort of master list of what has been preserved/synced and what is being worked on. The goal of this thread is to be the answer to the Re-mixed audio tracks on video releases thread. We are looking at Mono soundtracks, Stereo soundtracks, Dolby Stereo, 70mm mixes, soundtracks that contained dialog panning, mono surrounds, original far-field cinema mixes, DTS cinema disc mixes, etc. This would not only cover laserdiscs but any sources (DVDs, VHS, DTS discs). So without further ado here is the list of what has already been completed, please let me know if you have anything to add or any corrections.

So over the last weeks I completed the syncing of the Temple Of Doom widescreen laserdisc to the TOD blu-ray and Hunt For the Red October's widescreen laserdisc to the HFTRO blu-ray. PM me if you want a copy.

Right now, I am working on North By Northwest. I am syncing the Criterion Mono and the MGM Stereo/Mono laserdisc to the Warner Bros Blu-ray. I should be done at the end of this week. After that it will be The Good, The Bad and The Ugly's Mono laserdisc synced to the Italian blu-ray.

Can I get an explanation of the advantages of using these soundtracks over whatever's on their blurays?

I can't vouch for all of them, but I'd say the goal is to get something that more closely resembles the theatrical audio.  The problem is, in many of the above cases, the soundtracks are a relatively small problem on the Blu-ray compared to the video (Back to the Future, Alien/s).  But, lacking a correction for the video problems, they're the best we can do.

That's right, the hope is that many of these soundtracks are closer to the original movie's soundtracks with less remixing and changes made. For example, what I'm working on right now, North By Northwest was released in mono durning its original theatrical run which is preserved on the old laserdisc. The DVD and Blu-ray are only a 5.1 remix. So this is a chance to watch the movie with something that is hopefully closer to what they heard in 1959. Same with more modern films, Star Trek II was in Dolby Stereo in the theaters and on laserdisc but on dvd and blu-ray, 5.1. By syncing it you hopefully get the theatrical sound.

Is there also an advantage for people with 2.0 setups (like me) in that there's no downmixing going on? The mix was designed for 2.0, and thus will sound better than 5.1 downmix?

Well, in the sense that the 5.1 upmix often involves some audio shenanigans (it's rare that a soundtrack gets a tasteful conservative upmix).  So when downmixed to stereo it still has all the other stuff they did to it, whereas the stereo track doesn't have all of that.  A tastefully upmixed 5.1 track should sound about the same downmixed to 2.0--it's just that that sort of thing is pretty rare.

That said, Laserdisc 2.0 tracks aren't perfect either.  They can have somewhat compressed dynamics (the so-called near-field mix), dropouts, etc, but the audio guys simply didn't have all the tools at the time to be so tempted to make little changes all over the place so easily, so there's at least the semblance of theatrical fidelity.

I like this thread, and think it should deserve its own database. Here you are my last capture - it will be released soon:

Movie: Alien

Format: Laserdisc 876085

Input Soundtrack: Dolby Digital AC3 5.1 48KHz 16bit, bit perfect

Output Soundtrack: untouched - BD/DVD/AVCHD compliant

Synced To: 2010 Blu-ray Release Region A Theatrical Edition

Ripped/Synced by: _,,,^..^,,,_

Notes: Sound remastered from the 6-track magnetic masters of an early 70mm mix and contain alternative lines of dialog.

Thanks _,,,^..^,,,_, I added it to the list. Glad to have the 5.1 from that disc. I'd love to get a copy when you are finished. Are you doing a color re-do of Alien? I saw the pics in your color change thread. If you are going forward, I have this laserdisc:

http://www.lddb.com/laserdisc/10590/1090-80/Alien-(1979)

which is the oldest disc of Alien that I can find with digital PCM and Dolby Surround, and hopefully truest you can get to the original theatrical Dolby Stereo.

So funny thing, I was working on North By Northwest last night and I found a section were the Blu-ray's 5.1 is missing some sound effects. When Cary Grant is escaping from the hospital outside on the balcony the 5.1 is missing some sounds of his feet and struggling moving balcony to balcony. It occurs around 1 hour 54 minutes

Nbnw

But it is present on both the Criterion and MGM laserdiscs. Nothing exciting and it is only a few seconds but interesting nonetheless.

My guess is that some automated noise removal program mistook the sound effect for a blemish, and removed it.

It's The Hunt for Red October, not The Hunt For The Red October. The Living Daylights should be 007 15 then the title. For the rest of the original mixes for the James Bond movies, especially Sean Connerys, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, et. al

Did MAD MAX have an original track on Laserdisc in PCM? Glad it mentions which Blu-ray release to use, since I do have quite a lot. I'd rather use the original MGM release instead of the 2013 WB one.

That seems like a plausible reason.

Depends on your definition of 'original'. There are plenty of discs containing the original mono mix from the 1980 US release - some in digital PCM - but that was the American-accented dub.

Indeed the only DVD and BD releases containing the Australian English mono mix - the true 'original' - use lossy Dolby Digital. AFAIK the track included on the BD (both MGM and WB, which are essentially the same release) is as good as it currently gets for that film.

Fixed and did you mean the original Australian or American soundtrack. I thought the Mad Max dvd was the first time the original Australian was available in the US. We just have the sequels preserved.

I thought the MGM USA Blu-ray has the original Australian in lossless but a 5.1 remix. Only looking for the Original Australian mono in PCM. The WB Blu-ray has the American dub remix as lossless though and I already have both Blu-rays. For MAD MAX 2 I have both the original release and the 2013 remastered release. Also MAD MAX: Beyond Thunderdome. The Blu-rays. So I could make BD25s of 2 and Beyond Thunderdome?

 

EDIT: I'd plan on using the PCM or whichever for the 4K remaster for Ghostbusters as a BD25 mebbe. No idea though.

there is no pcm for mad max aussie mono mix. well, mgm/warner could release it lossless on another bd-release. but i wouldn't bet on it.
