  • DIY Iowa music choices

    Hopefully this isn't started somewhere else. If I had to do it over again I would have chosen a couple different tracks and would have boosted the mix a bit. If you even remember, these were the Thunderstiks tracks.

      Maynard had the unenviable task of picking the music for the test CD this year.

            Thanks for posting them. I really liked the Larry Carlton.

            P.S. What software did you use to truncate the songs?
            Failure is not an option. It comes bundled with Windows.

            We are passionate about great sound at whatever level we can afford, so don't let the audio atheists reduce the experience to a set of numbers and squiggly lines. - jbruner

              That was me! Doug SPL'd Dan's BassLines at 1m - 104 average at 1M, 109 peak. The Priest filled the whole auditorium : ) Stunningly loud and amazing clarity! Shawn A threw some rock into the mix, too.

              Yes, I made it home!

              Cheers / Robert

                I'm curious - which tracks?

                I've been a JP fan since... well, Stained Class, I think. Maybe earlier.

                  We only had time at lunch for one, and we didn't want to melt Paul K. I was going to do Victim of Changes Live (Unleashed in the East), but instead did the lead track from Turbo - the synthed drums SMASHED out of those speakers perfectly at extreme volume. Sweet

                    Audacity. Open source - super simple.

                      Yeah, "Turbo Lover"... that'll do it . I think that likely the best-sounding of the albums so far. Though the first 30 seconds or so of "Blood Red Skies" might have been a good sub test .

                          Re: DIY Iowa music choices

                          My two cuts:

                          Artist - Tori Amos
                          Album - Under The Pink
                          Track - Cloud on my Tongue

                          Artist - Radiohead
                          Album - Hail to the Thief
                          Track - Go to Sleep

                          Wolf, what was your comment on that Radiohead? "Angry much?" :D

                          And as to the dynamic range of Thunderbird, yeah, it made my little woofers protest, but for the record, Xmax was NOT exceeded. That was chuffing noise coming out around the phase plug. The FR125SR needs more motor venting in a bad way and it saddens me to know that it has 6mm of Xmax but can only cleanly use about 4.

                              You Dropped A Bomb On Me - The Gap Band (Yeah, Tom. Really :D)
                              Step Inside - Gomez (I just had to hear this track in a bigger room than mine)
