Thanks. :)

A bit off-topic, but you might get out of this Lego group I made:

That's awesome - I especially like Farnsworth :-D

Haven't been able to locate the disc as yet, but I've still got a few places I haven't checked.

----EDIT-----

Found it - it's in the form of a 665.2 MB .wav file. I don't exactly know how to go about doing this - Comcast is too unforgiving to upload it as a torrent, and I don't think I'd be able to do Rapidshare. Is there anything free I can use to upload a file just shy of 1 GB? And if I have to do it in chunks, how can I .RAR a file into multiple parts on a Mac to make it readable on both Macs and PCs?

If it'd be easier to send out physical copies and you want one, PM me and we can work something out, if I can't figure out how to upload the file.

please try to find a way to split it..

use winrar for osx, here's the function : http://www.win-rar.com/index.php?id=295&kb=0&kb_article_id=49

it's shareware...

or you could use : http://mac.softpedia.com/get/Compression-Tools/RAR-for-Mac-OS-X.shtml

its shareware also....... once you have the 6 chunks, almost any
file sharing site;.....rapidshare.com , megaupload, or zshare.net etc
will let you upload each part...

it would be much quicker getting it out that way....once i get it,
i can torrent it / combine it, etc..

ok, here's another free program that might be easier to use:

split files....

thanks again...

Okay, I'm working on splitting and uploading the files. I'll let everyone know when they're up, and you can PM me for the links.

It's a 4 part archive, and part 4 is being uploaded as I type.

Note to those downloading: It takes a bit longer than I thought to unpack - I'd thought it had frozen when I did it the first time, but it just takes some time to do.

PM me for the download links.

No problem - the mono mix is by far the best sound mix for SW, in my opinion. It'd be nice if we could have the exact same mixing choices, but in stereo, but I have no problem with mono sound (I have all the Beatles albums up to (not including) 'Abbey Road' in mono 'cause they sound better that way, too).

Have fun with it, and thanks to Belbucus for this wonderful restoration and Moth3r for getting it out there in the first place!

--edit-- - fixed my Beatles album reference mistake

This. Or even better 5.1 with the same choices.

Adywan's 5.1 mix of his Revisited project is quite nice - it has the Tantive IV alarms and Beru voice of the mono mix, but I think Luke still says "Biggs" in the dogfight, among other non-mono mix qualities. But those things he did stick in are quite nice to hear.

No, Luke says "Blast it, Wedge, where are you?" in Ady's SWR mix, but he did add Luke's "Biggs! Biggs!" over the comm from the Radio Drama when Biggs gets blasted.

My outlook on life - we’re all on the Hindenburg anyway…no point fighting over the window seat.

I stand corrected - thanks for clearing that up.

I don't mean to derail this thread, but did they do that many mono mixes? I was under the impression that after the White Album there were no specific mono mixes, and that those were merely folded-down stereo ones.

That's correct, but there were only 3 albums after the "White Album" - 'Yellow Submarine,' 'Abbey Road,' and 'Let it Be.'

However, 2 of the 6 Beatles songs on "Yellow Submarine" had previously-released official mono mixes ('Yellow Submarine' on "Revolver," and 'All You Need Is Love' on "Magical Mystery Tour" and a single), and the other 4 DID have mono mixes made that simply weren't released on said album. Dr. Ebbetts managed to get a hold of the remaining mono mixes for his "Yellow Submarine Mono Songtrack" release, so I took those and made my own custom "Yellow Submarine" mono edition (with the second half, the instrumental George Martin music, in stereo).

So I guess my statement was only half-right (I was thinking that "Let it Be" was recorded before "Abbey Road" when I wrote that, not that "Abbey Road" was released first). And if you don't already have them I *highly* recommend picking up Dr. Ebbetts' Beatles CD collection - even if you prefer the stereo mixes (his Blue Box collection is amazing), but *especially* if you enjoy the mono mixes as well.

Stumbled upon this forum about "The Mono Mix Restoration Project"

I GOT REALLY EXCITED ABOUT IT!!!!!!

I saw Star Wars back in 77 and would love to see it again with the mono mix.

Can anyone help me to get a copy via link, torrent etc.

Thank in advance.

May the force be with you........

Ditto.

 

I'd really like to have the theatrical version of Star Wars on DVD... and the closest that would be would be for now would be the Mono Mix synched up to the GOUT. Currently I can do that by playing the wave file audio boosted while the DVD running in PowerDVD with the sound levels low (so the mono thing drowns out the regular sound). Not an ideal setup for a stand alone player on a TV though.

 

Someday, I hope I'll be watching the X0 project, but until then...? Good luck guys!

I've just been listening to this (MANY thanks Chainsawash!) today and this has to be my favourite mix of Star Wars by far. Prior to receiving this my favourite was the 1985 LD remix from my 'incredible shrinking aspect ratio' release. The mono mix is the one I grew up with after first seeing it on ITV here in the UK back in 1980. Never did get used to the 'newer' Aunt Beru voice in all officially released versions after.

Belbecus you have done a man's job, Sir! (to quote another fav. film of mine). Thank you so much. The quality is also far better than I was expecting - never thought I'd hear the mono mix again, let alone with this level of fidelity. Everyone needs this!!!

Thanks again,

- 7FN.

Using the GOUT SW DVD, the mono .wav file that Chainsawash provided for me, Moth3r’s guide above and the various guides to converting from LB to anamorphic in the tech forum, I was able to create an anamorphic theatrical edition of Star Wars with the mono mix on DVD – which is FANTASTIC. A most welcome addition to my collection. Thanks to Chainsawash, Moth3r, and everyone who contributed to the DVD creation guides!

Can someone hook me up with the mono mix .wav file? Or at least point me in the right direction?

I've been interested in hearing the mono mix for a long time. Can someone hook me up with a recording of it, please?
