Bleeding edge

Its now taken me more than 4 weeks to convert all the tunes on Ambisonia to DTS surround (excluding writing the script which took about a month).

The process is so %$(&^!) laborious. I have to boot into Linux … and run the script. Then I check every channel in every file to make sure that there’s no clipping (there often is) … in which case I have to apply an amplitude envelope and re-do the conversion.

Then I boot into windows to do the DTS wrapping.

There is no commercially available command line or batch scriptable DTS wrapper… meaning that I have to do every DTS conversion manually with the supplied GUI.

Its times like these I realise that I’m trying to do something other people havn’t done yet … I’m sitting at the bleeding edge.

… anyway, back to the DTS conversions.

    Just some appreciation. These files are beautiful. They have a rich depth and clarity that I have not heard since the very best analogue. These file sound so much better than CDs. These are ear openers.
    Thanks for the effort.

  2. thanks for the feedback 🙂 …. its exciting to hear that the DTS conversions are reaching the end-listener with the intended effect.

    I should be finished today …
