Info: Mono soundtracks that were butchered with 5.1 remixes in later releases

TheTechnicalCharmer said:

Okay from what I have gathered, the following mono mixes and 2.0 mixes of movies that have been includes in recent releases of movies as of 2010-2021 are…(Deep Breath)

Scarface (From a recent Blu-Ray that included the 2.0 mix)
Mad Max (From the recent 4k Ultra High Definition Disc)
Superman: The Movie (Included on the Superman Theatrical Edition 2006 and Onwards)
The Godfather Parts I, II, and even III (Depends on who you ask really)

Wow. That was a very short list.

Now lets list some that were not restored with there original sounds…

The Terminator
The Godfather???
The Exorcist
Star Wars
…and so many more. 😦

The DIRECTOR’S CUT remix of The Exorcist is the revisionist one, the theatrical blu-ray’s 5.1 track has all of the original sounds with no changes whatsoever

The Godfather on the blu-ray has the original audio as an alternative

Chronologically Lost HD (Remaster of Mike Maloney's edit) (Released)

Hey if there’s an updated version able to be made, I acquired 1080p rips of the original movie episodes for the seasons 4-5 finales and season 6 premiere, they all had their scenes re-arranged along with some minor cuts (plus I have the reconstructions of the movie edits for the seasons 1-3 finales in 1080p)

If you’re interested in getting them let me know

Is it finished now?

The transfer is finished, but I’m still waiting on the encode to be done for the movie. Once that is finished I’ll set up a download in my Discord server for both the raw transfer, and a “remastered” version. Is sharing links to Discord here against the rules? If not I’ll edit this post with a Discord link for further updates.

it is on the public forums yes, but you can PM others a link if they’re interested

Help: The Sting (1973) - original mono track preservation

The Sting was originally released with mono audio and that’s how it was retained up to the first DVD release. When the movie saw a widescreen DVD release in 2005 it got a remixed 5.1 track that changed a lot of sound effects, fortunately the original track was included as well. Unfortunately when the movie came to blu-ray the original track got excluded and we only got the remix in English. Then there came a 4K release with some hoping the original mono track would be restored but sadly once again has been excluded.

I decided to make this thread in an attempt to preserve the original mix. It would be preferable for there a rip exist of the very first (open-matte) DVD because it reportedly had a better audio mastering than the 2005 DVD, but even the 2005 DVD would be fine with me.

If anyone has anything please let me know.
