I'm curious if resurfacing the disc might help.

@ Mr. T.J. Turner: where do you get your CDs resurfaced?


I own a machine. JFJ Easy Pro Plus. It shaves down the plastic the surface of the disc using sand paper, cutting away any surface imperfections. Then buffers and polishes the surface back to like new condition.


Impressive! Thanks. smile

Double-dipper here -- just received from SAE, and assume it's the most recent pressing of the 2020 reissue.

Does anyone else notice a 'chirp' or 'tsk' sound at 2m:19s on CD1 Track01?

It's the only flaw I've found after listening to the expanded tracks (haven't listened to 1991 tracks yet). While easy enough to edit out the offending 0.012 seconds, was just wondering...


It's on the same cue on Disk 2

I have the original Intrada release of the Rocketeer (pre-remastering). The dynamic range never really bothered me that much. I'm curious, for those of you that had that issue and bought the re-release, would you say the remastering is worth the double dip?

Chris


Hm. The remastering is definately a bit "more-in-your-face" than the previous edition. It suits the score imo. If you love the score, it's probably worth having both.

I'd say the original Hollywood CD sounds quite well. I love this score, so I had to have the extended film score as well as the booklet, but I would say those are just cases where the big time fan just has to have it.
The original Hollywood soundtrack album presentation had excellent sound and was well edited, so you don't HAVE to have the new Intrada edition.

I agree that The Hollywood CD has fantastic sound, but I wanted the unreleased cues to match that.

I haven't yet had a chance to give this a serious listen, but I would love an A-B comparison of this new mix with the original Intrada and with The Hollywood.

Thank you, Hedji.

I dug up my 2016s: the sound is on both tracks -- Expanded Main Title & 1991 Main Title -- although it sounds softer /more muted on the 2016 Expanded Main Title.

So, it's not a pressing flaw or error; just a noise inherent in the original recording. Good to know.

(I must have edited the 2016 track prior to converting to MP3...) :^\

For those struggling to rip the CDs to disc files, can I suggest slowing down the disc rotation speed? Although it cannot solve all problems, I have found it helps in many cases when I rip using WinAmp Pro. I can select down to 1x, though I haven't had to go at that speed with any rip yet. Normally I use 16x, sometimes 8x, and the slowest I've used so far is 4x, I think. I did have one disc (I can't remember which now, but I think it was a La-La Land) that simply would not rip without leaving sound errors on my laptop's drive, but would rip fine on the USB external drive I have.
