hairy_hen's ROTJ 5.1 purist mix w/ sync fix (Released)

 (Edited)

I’ve done another audio experiment, and fixed the sync issue with hairy_hen’s 5.1 ROTJ mix.  Not that the issue was terribly noticeable to most, but it bugged me enough to do this.

The fixed audio is available in lossy (448k AC3) and lossless (DTS-MA).  Contact me if you’re interested.

Fair warning, my audio work is pretty amateurish compared with h_h’s, but I’ve only edited it in two spots for a grand total of less than two seconds altered, and I think it sounds pretty good.  YMMV.

In response to some questions: the sync problem in the original file starts about 0:48 and lasts until around 1:38, where it becomes much less severe and in my opinion becomes unnoticeable.  It continues at this less severe level until the end of the film.  So for about 50 minutes mid-film, there's a noticeable (to me) problem with audio sync.  It's most noticeable when Han is speaking.  It's not as noticeable with other characters, either because they speak more slowly or because they don't move their mouths as much.  Anyway, at its worst, the sync problem is only two frames--pretty minor.

Also this is a limited-time offer.

This seems interesting. I'd love to try it out.

So if I've been paying attention...
This will match PAL GOUT's frame count? (while running at NTSC frame rate)

This part baffles me.
Is it going back in the vault?
Superseded by a Special Edition?

However, in practice you must take into account the “fuckwit factor”. Just talk to Darth Mallwalker…

Correct.

;) My free filehosting links will eventually expire and I don't plan to re-upload.

Finally got around to muxing the audio mix to Harmy's ROTJ and it's pretty well done. I noticed that problem with the original audio, the slight out sync and to me it was noticeable. Thanks for the share and the DTS-HD MA mix too! I got a nice little kick out seeing the logo pop up on my receiver. 

Another mix for my ever growing archive of mixes.

Any chance somebody who grabs this could upload it to MySpleen?

That'll be me. I'll keep you posted. 

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

It's on the spleen, but not visible yet. I'm gonna let my torrent client seed overnight and see if the tracker sees it.

Seeding.

Now, who can provide me with instructions on how to incorporate this into my copy of RotJ Despecialized?

No problem. For muxing on my Mac, I've been using an app called Subler. There's probably several Windows alternatives. Just search for how to mux an MKV.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

I'll need to re-upload this, and might not be able to do it before the holidays, but I'll see what I can do.

A new version of RotJ in 5.1 with fully corrected GOUT-synch is in the works and will be completed by the time v2.0 of the Despecialized Edition comes out.

Thanks, hairy_hen, and looking forward to it.  To re-iterate a point from my first post, my altered mix was just a stopgap until the new mix and DeEd 2.0 came out, so for goodness' sake, everyone using my mix should upgrade to hairy_hen's new mix when it's available, and leave mine behind.  I certainly will.

Thanks for making me aware there was an issue. I'm downloading now and will mux it in before burning the v1 I have to DVD9. Doing this since I assume there will at least go a few months before v2 comes out, and at that point I'll be moving to bluray using the mkvs.

EDIT:

Okay, the torrent is slow as molasses, and only includes the compressed version (Well, that's probably the version I want for strait inclusion I assume, so that doesn't matter)

Any chance of downloading from a share site instead? I couldn't find any links on tehparadox. :-\
