    Ok, thanks John. In that case by all means go ahead and use this method. Like I said, errors in timing won't matter here, as it will be incorporated in the delay value that you determine using this method.

      Waiting on some back ordered crossover parts. As Wolf predicted, my shortening and deepening of the box will need more material than his prototype.

        Oh yeah!! You's gots some mind-warpage going on there! I haven't played that through them yet, but I plan to! What a GREAT album....
        ...and yes it is better than the remaster too. I had no idea anybody else on here had that.

        Later,

          Haven't listened to it yet, I bought it for the photo op. I saw your Dragon Foals pic.

          Edit: If I start another pair of speakers before I clean the garage, I will suffer some verbal abuse.

            FWIW, I like the Brainchild:Mindwarp version over that of the later CircleOfDust:Brainchild and it's remaster.
            I see it says limited edition to 1000 copies. Care to share the release year from the back? Mine says p&C 1992 R.E.X. MUSIC INC. #7901426810

            I'm wondering if yours is a Retroactive Records version, ca. 2005 release. Nevermind, confirmed as I type:
            https://www.discogs.com/Brainchild-M...elease/5164628

            This is the one I have:
            https://www.discogs.com/Brainchild-M...release/102225

            I also have the original CoD release, but the songs are ever so slightly different and more polished. They dropped the intro to Telltale Crime by Geraldo, and the vocals on track 3 are less desirable:
            https://www.discogs.com/Circle-Of-Du...d/master/18537

            As well as the remaster by the artist himself from a couple years ago.

            I feel some things are better, some are worse. For SQ, the original Mindwarp takes the cake.

            I hope the SQ is faithful to the original on the reissue you have.

            Enjoy!

              ...and if you like it, I would definitely look into getting this one too:

              The other CoD stuff is different, as every album sounds different. I like them all.

              Sorry for the sidetrack,

                So........

                I bought this off ebay for 8 dollars. I wanted to take a photo like your Dragon Foals pic i saw, when I finished my version of your "Zingers".

                It is digitally remastered, Retroactive records, C 2005. Yes, limited 1000 units.

                I'll give it a listen later today when I'm alone.

                Edit: I'll have to hook up one of my big amps for this CD after I finish my "zinger" derivatives. I don't think the little SMSL will do it justice.
