Where’d I get all the info? Lots of reading, and working in the only theatre in Alaska to have Dolby Digital installed. Anchorage’s Fireweed theatre was at the time the biggest Dolby Digital installation on the West Coast.

Well, I’m no expert, but here’s what I’ve gathered…

* Dolby – uses the same techniques as your Dolby cassettes…noise reduction, basically.
* DolbySR – the noise reduction, plus better placement of where the noises appear to be coming from in the theatre. Stands for Dolby Spectral Recording.
* Digital Dolby – in addition to the normal sound track, a digital track is printed between the sockets of the film. When a theatre is equipped to read and reproduce this track, it results in near cd quality sound (no background hiss and pops), and also uses six tracks to place the sounds…one center, two front (left and right), two rear (left and right), and one subwoofer channel. End result-some of the best quality sound I’ve ever heard in a movie theater. When it’s used effectively, it can be really mind-blowing.
* DTS – a similar technique to Digital Dolby, only developed by Sony (if I remember correctly) and Lucasfilm…which can cause some licensing conflicts in theatres already set up with Digital Dolby. Competing systems and all. Major difference…instead of using the space between the sprocket holes, the digital track is printed in a small strip on the edge of the film, which means the actual print can’t be quite as wide. I recently saw Schindler’s list in DTS, though, and didn’t see any noticeable difference in the width of the image.
* THX – developed by Lucasfilm. Not so much an improvement in the sound itself, THX uses special placing of speakers and translation of the audio tracks to make sure no matter where in the theatre you sit, you get the true stereo effect…something which can suffer greatly towards the edges of a theatre in a non-THX environment.

Where’d I get all the info? Lots of reading, and working in the only theatre in Alaska to have Dolby Digital installed. Anchorage’s Fireweed theatre was (this may have changed by now) at the time the biggest Dolby Digital installation on the West Coast…the auditorium sits over 900. Digital installations has been done before, just not in an auditorium that large. Was a more than $10,000 upgrade to the existing system. Plus, though I don’t work there anymore, the licensing agreements have been settled to the point that it now has DTS also.

Incidentally, except for the DTS (because it’s from a different company), all of the systems are compatable. Using digital negates the need for normal Dolby (noise reduction for digital sound?), however it’s perfectly possible (and has been done) to have a movie recorded in both Dolby Digital and THX, and I suppose in both DTS and THX. Sounds incredible, too…

Is the ‘Burn Like Brilliant Trash’ single easy to come by? Doubtful…since it’s now out of print.

Was curious as to whether anyone knew of an ftp site with .gifs of the cover art to any or all of KMFDM’s albums…I love Brute’s artwork, and would love to get my hands on some.

Really? Bizarre…up here in Anchorage, it actually is fairly ‘easy to find,’ as both locations of Mammoth Music (the local ‘alternative’ music store) regularly have at least one copy on the shelves, and I even see it fairly regularly at Camelot…

Tell ya what…anybody wants a copy, send me a check/money order made out to either Mammoth Music or Camelot Records (saves you from worrying about my cashing your check), and I’ll send you a copy of Fixed…we can work out postage later…

First off, I’m insanely jealous whenever someone casually starts off a post about BlackHappy with “some friends of mine….” Anway…

They came up here to Anchorage for two shows, but, unfortunately, I managed to miss them both. Very upset…however, I have managed to pick up both _Friendly Dog Salad_ and _Peghead_, and am very hooked…if you could pass on my appreciation (and generic fandom ``) to your friends ``, I’d appreciate it…

Was curious if anyone else out there had discovered Blackhappy…incredibly good band. Two guitarists, two drummers, a bass, two trombones and a sax…lots of sound, powerful music.

Don’t know the technical info (only that I got the 3-incher up here in Alaska), but the songs are ‘Too Physica’ by Adam Ant, and ‘Suck’ by Pigface. Suck is available on a couple different Pigface albums in a couple different versions.
