Phew! This morning I was shocked to find out that the soundtrack to 'Jurassic Park' had been re-released today; even better, it included four additional tracks with a combined runtime of roughly 12 minutes. Still missing are some small tidbits (2:40 min) which doesn´t hurt that much. Anyway, it became clear to me immediately that I had to do one of my Deluxe Editions to honor this soundtrack classic. I´ve now bought the soundtrack two times, I also own the DVDs to all the movies... and even one old VHS that I kept for sentimental reasons. I don´t know how much time and money I´ve spent on this franchise and I don´t care, it has been fun from the first minute I laid eyes on the novel.

Supposedly the soundtrack has been remastered - this is true, Patricia Sullivan indeed remastered it. Beside the obvious and nowadays common brickwall limiting she also reduced dynamics of this score... which turned out to be a good thing after all (I did not expect a sonic improvement but I was proven wrong). Compressing dynamics has helped the overall cohesiveness of the score. She also used some slight equalizing to tone down the aggressive treble of the original and added a bit deep bass. All of this helps to 'warm up' the score, to induce some life into something that formerly was a tad brittle. All in all, this lady did an incredible job and I´ve subsequently aimed to reproduce her remastering (I would be using the OST tracks however and would also add an infusion of what I like sonically). BUT: there are some obstacles with the new release. The aformentiontened additional pieces sound completely different to the rest; one reason is a different equalization, the other reason is completely absent reverberation! Yes, for the OST Shawn Murphy augmented the sound with loads of artifcial reverb. The new tracks sound extremely dry and dull as a result. But there´s more... the new tracks have been mixed differently... which is why I now understand why they have been placed at the end of the score: the obvious differences would completely destroy the listening experience.

So I ended up not only copying Pat Sullivans mastering (which was time-consuming on its own) but also adapting the sound from the OST for the new pieces - I did what I usually never do: I added reverb. Additionally I matched dynamics to fit the rest while also tweaking equalization so that it fits in. While I have not been completely successful the differences have been reduced considerably. In order for the score to be in chronological order I also had to take pieces apart... and Boy, this really wasn´t easy. In some cases I segued the new tracks (which had to be spliced as well) into old ones and in other cases I left those pieces alone. Know this: on some tracks it is plainly audible that I tricked a lot ('Incident at Isla Nublar' is the most prominent example), while it won´t sound well it´s the best I was able to do with the things given to me. Sorry for that. Another thing... this is not completely lossless, roughly 12 minutes have been taken from the new release while the rest comes from my own OST I bought 20 years ago. Why didn´t I use the new release? Because I don´t like to work with lossy stuff, what was worse was that two tracks (12 & 13) had dropouts so I had no other choice. Apart from the occasionally haphazard crossfading I´m very happy with the result.

Before I forget: I did not include the track 'Theme from Jurassic Park' - I would have placed it at the end of the CD anyway right after the 'End Credits' as a suite recorded especially for the album; but since both are very much alike and since I hate redundancy I erased that track. You don´t like that? Add it yourself :)

The cover is nothing special. I worked on this edition from this morning until an hour ago; I always liked the official cover so I used that and tweaked it only slightly to fit my needs. However, for those who do not like the old cover I also included a variation including matching back and inlay covers so that the comic book style can be completely avoided.

EDIT: Guys and Gals, read the text above before asking a lot of questions. Everything is explained there.

1. Opening Titles 0:33

Interesting.

Did you include the 4 bonus tracks in this?

There's a vinyl of the soundtrack out there. A vinyl rip should do better for an edit.

Don´t know what you mean. I used the official CD from 1993 if it was what you meant.

And why should a vinyl rip be better for an edit? I don´t understand...

And why should a vinyl rip be better for an edit? I don´t understand...

Vinyl rips usually wield 24 bit depth, perfect for audio editing.
CD's are 16 bit depth, standard. Ideal for final output.
Also vinyl usually have higher sample rates beyond 48kHz, more room to breathe for your edits.

Expanding 16 bit to 24 wouldn't exactly be the same as a 24 bit mastering album.
But, tbh, I'm not sure how it all works since vinyl is analogue by nature.
I'm sure some here can elaborate more on the pre-destined 24 bit depth for vinyl-to-digital transfers.

Reel 3 Pt. 2 Record Intro and Wompi Ending: OST track 2 [0:00-0:48 and 3:13-end, respectively]. Williams recorded this intro and ending so they could turn The Dinosaurs into a standalone concert suite. Everything on the OST track from 0:49 to 3:12 is just the same take of The Dinosaursheard in track 4.

I still can't understand any of it.

I'm sure some here can elaborate more on the pre-destined 24 bit depth for vinyl-to-digital transfers.

Vinyl is one of the most overstated formats ever to 'grace' the market. The usable resolution is around 12 Bits / 32 kHz with most vinyls. Furthermore many recent vinyls have been derived from the same master used for the CD - which is 16/44.1 and at best 24/44.1. What´s worse is that even with a properly aligned stylus one still inadvertently encounters distortions, channel imbalances, tracking errors... and what not. It would not ever occur to me to disgrace a score like Jurassic Park by using an LP. Sorry if I´m very harsh right now... but vinyl is the worst that can happen to orchestral music IMO.

I myself always work in 32/176.4 and even if it´s only an upsample I use the very best resamplers and tools available to the market - and I use them wisely. You can be assured that I always take the highest care not to sound 'digital' (whatever that means) and to present an actual sonic improvement surpassing the original. Sometimes it´s not working, sure, but I´m getting better at it every day. And this release here IMO has been improved compared to the OST.

Uh, thats the "Theme From Jurassic Park" track from the OST, the beginning and ending were written to be edited into "Journey To The Island" to create the 2nd track on the Album "Theme from Jurassic Park"

Its not unreleased, its just not on this.

but it does not matter, as it breaks the flow of your listening (personally I would use it as an overture, perhaps even between Opening Titles, and Incident on Isla Nublar)

No, I´m not. I have several scores on vinyl and I´ve always found the CD to be superior. And if the CD doesn´t sound the way I would like it to I try to change it. I´m really sorry, but I don´t like vinyl at all. I recently bought the 'Cloud Atlas' vinyl (there´s one additional track on it) and I don´t look forward recording it...

It includes the four bonus tracks. All in chronological order, just have a look at the tracklist, most of the original (recording session)-titles have been retained.

You should read his post. It does include the bonus tracks. He split the cues and put them in their proper places. and this is why he had to work harder, the last 4 bonus cues sounded totally different from the OST. Just look at the track list. T-Rex chase is part of the 4 bonus cues.

Hey Sonic, just curious, if you have a score that is compressed so bad, that you get ear fatigue what would be the best way to either fix it, or atleast alleviate the suffering with audio software?

Which extra track? You mean 'Cloud Atlas'? When I have time... since vinyl is so fragile and everything depends on the proper setup this´ll take its time.

And I don´t know if you want to delete the official 20th anniversary... I guess, you´d have to compare which of the two you like better.

yeah, but there's a lot of hullabaloo about it.
Douche brought up a lot of valid points over it.
The largest most fret over is using the right playback speed.

But I didn't really know about the bit depth/sample rate issue with them.

I've only marginally skimmed through some forums for info but it always turns into a debate, the likes of the Loudness War.

Honestly, I know both of you (Sparktank and SonicAdventure) and I know you are both good guys but seriously Sparktank what the hell. SonicAdventure knows a lot about audio technology and things so if he says a certain source isn't up to his standards then he is not simply being douchy but has tried it and found that it did not live up to the hype.

You know what? I pondered the idea to include something like that at the end. I´m sure I could have extracted the T-Rex's roar from my DVD to include it somewhere. The second possibility would have been the roar from the Erich-Kunzel-album 'The Great Fantasy Adventure Album'... but in the end I decided against it since the questioning conclusion to the score is better left alone.

Phew! This morning I was shocked to find out that the soundtrack to 'Jurassic Park' had been re-released today; even better, it included four additional tracks with a combined runtime of roughly 12 minutes. Still missing are some small tidbits (2:40 min) which doesn´t hurt that much. Anyway, it became clear to me immediately that I had to do one of my Deluxe Editions to honor this soundtrack classic. I´ve now bought the soundtrack two times, I also own the DVDs to all the movies... and even one old VHS that I kept for sentimental reasons. I don´t know how much time and money I´ve spent on this franchise and I don´t care, it has been fun from the first minute I laid eyes on the novel.

Supposedly the soundtrack has been remastered - this is true, Patricia Sullivan indeed remastered it. Beside the obvious and nowadays common brickwall limiting she also reduced dynamics of this score... which turned out to be a good thing after all (I did not expect a sonic improvement but I was proven wrong). Compressing dynamics has helped the overall cohesiveness of the score. She also used some slight equalizing to tone down the aggressive treble of the original and added a bit deep bass. All of this helps to 'warm up' the score, to induce some life into something that formerly was a tad brittle. All in all, this lady did an incredible job and I´ve subsequently aimed to reproduce her remastering (I would be using the OST tracks however and would also add an infusion of what I like sonically). BUT: there are some obstacles with the new release. The aformentiontened additional pieces sound completely different to the rest; one reason is a different equalization, the other reason is completely absent reverberation! Yes, for the OST Shawn Murphy augmented the sound with loads of artifcial reverb. The new tracks sound extremely dry and dull as a result. But there´s more... the new tracks have been mixed differently... which is why I now understand why they have been placed at the end of the score: the obvious differences would completely destroy the listening experience.

So I ended up not only copying Pat Sullivans mastering (which was time-consuming on its own) but also adapting the sound from the OST for the new pieces - I did what I usually never do: I added reverb. Additionally I matched dynamics to fit the rest while also tweaking equalization so that it fits in. While I have not been completely successful the differences have been reduced considerably. In order for the score to be in chronological order I also had to take pieces apart... and Boy, this really wasn´t easy. In some cases I segued the new tracks (which had to be spliced as well) into old ones and in other cases I left those pieces alone. Know this: on some tracks it is plainly audible that I tricked a lot ('Incident at Isla Nublar' is the most prominent example), while it won´t sound well it´s the best I was able to do with the things given to me. Sorry for that. Another thing... this is not completely lossless, roughly 12 minutes have been taken from the new release while the rest comes from my own OST I bought 20 years ago. Why didn´t I use the new release? Because I don´t like to work with lossy stuff, what was worse was that two tracks (12 & 13) had dropouts so I had no other choice. Apart from the occasionally haphazard crossfading I´m very happy with the result.

Before I forget: I did not include the track 'Theme from Jurassic Park' - I would have placed it at the end of the CD anyway right after the 'End Credits' as a suite recorded especially for the album; but since both are very much alike and since I hate redundancy I erased that track. You don´t like that? Add it yourself :)

The cover is nothing special. I worked on this edition from this morning until an hour ago; I always liked the official cover so I used that and tweaked it only slightly to fit my needs. However, for those who do not like the old cover I also included a variation including matching back and inlay covers so that the comic book style can be completely avoided.

Really lovely listen this was. TBH the original ost was IMO quite well sounding considering Williams' releases are often harsh this was quite different. But the only problem i had was than the orchestra didnt sound alive enough for my taste. Your version sounds like i imagined it to be. Its is vibrant and and dynamics are really improved. The brass is so much more polished also. Strings are more welcome and charming. Im not great explaining in a technical way, i just explain what i feel when i listen. I think sonic has a sort of sound signature especially when it comes to John Williams. Because williams is a very organic composer, his orchestra on cd has to really sound like you are there with the orchestra and not too artificial equalization sounding. This is where i think you nail the sound for this reason sonic. I just listened to a few tracks off the 20th edition and even though it does sound fantastic it is also quite deep sounding in parts whereas yours is slightly smoother which for my taste is more appreciated. Thanks for your deluxe edition and i surely know which one is my preferable version.

i also couldnt resist adding the 'Theme From Jurassic Park' track. sorry :P

Lockdown, I just posted the missing cues (and the source cue!) in the thread for the Twentieth Anniversary release ([Only registered and activated users can see links]).

Are those the very same tracks included in the bootleg, I think it was called Jurassic Park: Resurrection, with bits of SFX?

I honestly don't get why The Trouble With Dennis wasn't included. It's such a great cue. I'm actually surprised that the T-Rex Chase wasn't included in the original CD, which I hadn't listened to in nearly a decade prior to yesterday, after having acquired the bootleg mentioned above. The original OST presentation is so strange. I feel that having Journey to the Island, Welcome to Jurassic Park, and the End Credits was enough to satisfy our needs with the main JP theme, so Track 2 felt utterly pointless and took up space that could have been filled with the T-Rex Chase and The Trouble With Dennis.

Those are the same cue, so I would have removed End Credits, and replaced it with WTJP instead of droppig Theme From Jurassic Park, seeing how it has a new intro and ending, where EC only has a clean opening.

I wondered if you might shed some light on somethign about this which is bothering me.

The original film has a DTS soundtrack, and the music to the album matches that on the DTS film rip.

The blu ray has a new 7.1 track which matches the music to this iTunes release

BUT the iTunes release does NOT match the Album release when it comes to speed, which makes me think this sources from a newer transfer used to create the new mixes.

What would cause this discrepency seeing as the album/original DTS track should, in theory, be incapable of being the wrong pitch during playback.

According to a program I use, the iTunes release is .99741% too slow but doesnt seem to effect pitch. This speed issues becomes obvious in long tracks like "Journey to the Island." id normally think that these might be alternate takes but every chance i could compare misc stage noise I found it would be in both (except in the case of the last note of "Journey to the Island" which seems to be dofferent, or in one other track where they edited out the stage noise). I know you mentioned the whole low tone used for proper playback/transfer... do you think there was an error in the original recording and so this transfer was done slightly wrong?

Fair argument. Thing is, until Jurassic Park I regarded Patricia Sullivan as an engineer who can only achieve one thing: making everything louder with a brickwall limiter. I also only assume that it´s her, who knows if someone else performed the dynamic alterations when preparing the score for the 3D-remix.

For one, I have not heard any speed discrepances between the old CD and the new iTunes release. I should know because in two cases I used the new release to augment my old CD. On the old CD 'Dennis steals the Embryo' crossfades into 'A Tree for my Bed' while on the new release they were seperated. So I took the new ending from 'Dennis' and replaced the last 5 to 10 seconds of the old CD release with it. The same for the beginning of 'A Tree for my Bed'. In both cases pitch changes would have been very obvious - but I did not hear any.

What program do you use? How can it calculate pitch changes if it doesn´t have an idea about absolute pitch (no program has)? What is the reference for this program? Secondly, I observed the opposite: the new tracks are slightly shorter - but only because they have been faded out sooner.

In theory of course the old release could have contained an 'error'. We can assume that Jurassic Park was recorded analogue (there are many hints which support this) so a new remaster would ideally have included a new digitization of that analogue master. As unreliable as analogue tape is could mean that using this tape with a differently aligned or set-up tape playback machine would yield a very slightly different overall speed. This is of course no 'error' (hence the hyphens) but just a difference of used hardware.

I will not talk about the movie itself... especially the PAL release did have a speed-up I´ve never heard before.

I disagree, actually. I would say it was fair had not the iTunes release already been posted. But since the album itself is fair game, I fail to see how this "fan edit" (forgive me, I know it is more than that) is going to hurt sales any further...

Hey thanks for the answer. Having been working on a complete JP score edit for the past 15 years, I've kinda known my way around the score and the community. (You might know me by my other name 'BrachioInGen' or by my 'Resurrected' edit with snyth mockups and such).

Anywho, comparing Region 1 NTSC to the ALBUM, they always lined up exactly (or pretty darn close with a little wiggle room for error). But when they blu ray came out, I ripped the audio for the still missing tracks and never compared them. NOw that we have this iTunes release, I've compared ALL the tracks because I wanted to make sure we didn't have alternate takes since it seems obvious to me that they went back to the original source masters and not the album masters to rebuild the edits (since so many details are changed it seems obvious).

Comparing them, I found that, like with long cues such as "Journey to the Island" they were pitched almost the same (or exactly the same hard to tell by ear) but as time progresses the iTunes tracks become longer bit by bit. I've compared stage noise so I KNOW these are the same takes but they are not lining up as they should.

I use a program that I've always used and kinda default to called MAGIX and it gives you the option to change the length of a file without changing the pitch (but you can also do both as a factor of each-other).

Anyway, it was in THIS option that once I moved it to 0.99741 that I found the music lined up as it should. Comparing it to the rips from the Blu Ray, I found that the blu ray rips lined up with the iTunes before changing the length, but that they did not fit against the original DVD releases.

This seems like a very small change but I'm always wondering what causes them... if its someone being sloppy, if it's an error from years ago... or if you maybe recognize the amount as something that's inherent in the technology change. I may have to see what the interval would be with pitch shift and if that ruins the pitch (it just might as they both sound the right pitch).

Any thoughts would be well appreciated.

It was a 3 disc boot. One disc included the film version, another had the original version, and I believe the third was special stuff like sound effects and I think it had the trailer music, which is actually just a track from Backdraft. There was SFX, though the Trouble With Nedry track isn't really affected by it as much. It was the one that posted here a while back.

Ah, you´re that guy! Then you should have much, much more experience with the score and I´m sorry that I doubted you.


Anywho, comparing Region 1 NTSC to the ALBUM, they always lined up exactly (or pretty darn close with a little wiggle room for error)..... Comparing them, I found that, like with long cues such as "Journey to the Island" they were pitched almost the same (or exactly the same hard to tell by ear) but as time progresses the iTunes tracks become longer bit by bit. I've compared stage noise so I KNOW these are the same takes but they are not lining up as they should.

So you aligned them at the start of the track and they slowly drifted apart over the whole duration? That would indeed indicate that something is off. Either a pitch change or some dropped samples. But since you´re able to re-align by changing duration WITHOUT changing pitch it can only mean that some samples have been taken out. Assuming then that they did not digitize the album master anew this might indicate that either their post-processing chain made an error or the encoding employed by Apple.


This seems like a very small change but I'm always wondering what causes them... if its someone being sloppy, if it's an error from years ago... or if you maybe recognize the amount as something that's inherent in the technology change. I may have to see what the interval would be with pitch shift and if that ruins the pitch (it just might as they both sound the right pitch).

This is indeed a very small change - but noteworthy nonetheless. I assume that it isn´t sloppiness on someones' part but simply an error that could have been avoided. Having said that... in case they digitized it anew and resampled it after to the CD samplerate of 44.1 the resampling engine they used will have introduced other differences. Samplerate converters, D/A converters or oversamplers have an inherent systemic effect called 'samplerate drift'. It means that the samplerate drifts very, very, very slightly (the famous 0.00001% wow-and-flutter of digital systems caused by the almost perfectly stable crystal) which means that a piece of music recorded two times with the same converters on different occasions will produce results that are not 100% but 99.9999999% alike. This won´t ever be audible, we or measurment instruments are unable to detect it but it´s revealed once they are aligned and copied into each other with one of them having an inverted phase. Ideally this should produce... nothing, ideally it shouldn´t be anything there after copying those files into each other. But once both files have been treated to samplerate conversion, D/A/A/D conversion or whatever they will produce differences.

I´m going to have a look at the iTunes files and the CD files and compare them and will report back.

In order for the score to be in chronological order I also had to take pieces apart... and Boy, this really wasn´t easy. In some cases I segued the new tracks (which had to be spliced as well) into old ones and in other cases I left those pieces alone. Know this: on some tracks it is plainly audible that I tricked a lot ('Incident at Isla Nublar' is the most prominent example), while it won´t sound well it´s the best I was able to do with the things given to me[/SIZE]

Hey man, if there is something i'm capable of doing with tracks, it's breaking them apart and putting them together in a totally unnoticeable manner that is true to the original. The trick is to use what the entire album has to offer, not the two or more tracks you try to connect. Somewhere in that album there is a clean halve second of the instrument and tonality you need.
If you still got your un-combined tracks and the source i am willing to give it a shot.

Since the two audio mixing experts are here, Sonic and Ola, I thought I'd give this a shot: Regarding: "Desert Chase" from "Raiders." I've loved the DCC extended edition of this track, and have always hated that abrupt cut found on the Polydoor and Concorde release. Have either of you attempted to create an extended version of this track, taking the DCC extended bit and incorporating this into the otherwise terrific sounding version on the Concorde disc. It's the only real flaw in the Concorde set that has irked me since it came out. I'd love a full version of this track with the Concorde level of sound quality.

You guys are wonders.

BTW, Amazon will have JP for sale on April 9th. Perhaps they will have the glitched tracks fixed.

As for the drift, that sounds about right. The pitch didnt seem wrong but I will try adjusting both to see if it ruins the pitch. I can say for sure that looking at the wav form and aligning the two in one spot will eventually, even within a minute or so, show the "drift." The thing I noticed was that the music on the Album matched the timing and pitch of the NTSC but not the Blu ray. The Blu ray matches the iTunes release. Knowing that they rebuilt the audio for the 7.1 and now for the 3D release, my thought is perhaps they digitized the music masters and rebuilt the audio in the mix from this new digital transfer. I can confirm they did alter the music as some micro edits in the DVD 5.1 do not exist in the Blu ray 7.1 so I know for a fact they reassbled the mix but it seems obvious now this new mix is from a new digital conversion.

This seems odd to me because the DTS would already have the digital information but perhaps that's the only "digital" element they had to work with... None of the pieces had been digitized and so to rebuild the sound field they had to digitize all the elements to rebuild it.

Hope that kinda makes sense... And in an inteview Williams says they went back to the "sessions" to chose new tracks for the iTunes release and I can imagine, wanting to keep the sound more uniform they chose to take all the music from the sessions and rebuild the album edits.

I know of at least a few differences in the iTunes album/CD album that lead me to believe its from a new transfer and it would make sense they'd use the transfer used to make the new 7.1 since those elements would be readily available now.

Here's to hoping the whole thing leaks though lol

Since the two audio mixing experts are here, Sonic and Ola, I thought I'd give this a shot: Regarding: "Desert Chase" from "Raiders." I've loved the DCC extended edition of this track, and have always hated that abrupt cut found on the Polydoor and Concorde release. Have either of you attempted to create an extended version of this track, taking the DCC extended bit and incorporating this into the otherwise terrific sounding version on the Concorde disc. It's the only real flaw in the Concorde set that has irked me since it came out. I'd love a full version of this track with the Concorde level of sound quality.

You guys are wonders.

BTW, Amazon will have JP for sale on April 9th. Perhaps they will have the glitched tracks fixed.

I have come across a Flac version of 'Las Gaviotas' by The Madacy Mariachi Band if anybody here is interested.

You can't really say "you guys" because i didn't really bring much editing to this forum.
But if you're interested go here, best read the description page first. In the file section you find the music. The mainpackage mostly concists of Jerry Goldsmith and Bruce Broughton edits. The music really brings new layers to Fallout 3, both in "dungeons" and in "battles"
other upload packages not only contain battle and dungeon music but also for running through the landscape or cities :)

You can guess the source album/recordings from the track names.

And so on :)

About the edit you request, i would need to know which source you want it edited from (in FLAC please) and some explanation how you want it to sound.

Hey man, if there is something i'm capable of doing with tracks, it's breaking them apart and putting them together in a totally unnoticeable manner that is true to the original. The trick is to use what the entire album has to offer, not the two or more tracks you try to connect. Somewhere in that album there is a clean halve second of the instrument and tonality you need.
If you still got your un-combined tracks and the source i am willing to give it a shot.

I´m sorry but I already deleted them. I know I should have kept them so that I could have attempted to use some parts from the DVD but I simply forgot...

BTW, I did exactly that for 'Incident at Isla Nublar': there is the last synth tone from 'Dennis steals the Embryo' at the end which then slowly fades into 'The encased Mosquito'. I also "doubled" the end sequence of 'Incident' (sounds a bit odd). However, it still sounds odd.

If what you say is true then they went full throttle and digitized everything anew. That´s an elaborate way of doing things...


Hope that kinda makes sense... And in an inteview Williams says they went back to the "sessions" to chose new tracks for the iTunes release and I can imagine, wanting to keep the sound more uniform they chose to take all the music from the sessions and rebuild the album edits.

In my experience John Williams releases always (well, maybe not always but certainly 20 years ago) receive a specially prepared master exclusively made for the CD only. This special master was derived from the recording sessions and augmented with newly composed pieces when needed (John Williams always has not only the movie score but also the soundtrack albums in mind when composing). Those pieces were then cut, elongated or made shorter to form the suites we all know. Everything for the CD was treated differerent to the sessions themselves which were left alone. The material assembled for the CD album also received special audio treatment as the sessions lacked too much reverb to be a John-Williams-score; so Shawn Murphy added artificial reverb (or had a seperate track with actual recording venue reverberation) and also changed EQ (boosting treble to amplify the fantasy aspect). All of that is the reason why the new pieces sound different: they have different dynamics, different EQ, different staging and almost no reverb. So I´m fairly certain that they used the old, specially prepared album master digitizing it anew and subsequently remastering it; then they took several tracks from the 'pure' sessions, digitized them, turned them into suites and tacked them to the end without any other change.

All of this is also the reason why 'Hook' last year was a mixed bag. The album master was still existing but some of the sessions had been lost (that´s why 'Neverending War' had to be agumented by film stems). It also explains why newer or other additional tracks sounded decidedly different.

In both cases they should have paid the money for Shawn Murphy to repeat his album mastering for the new tracks as good as possible. But... the score market is small and so no money will be paid as most people won´t notice anyway.

I agree as I assume that you´re much, much better at cutting and re-editing scores together than me. The idea to use something from another piece of music for 'Incident' came to me very late in the process and I wish I´d gotten it sooner. But I really don´t like 'repairing' my releases... it´s either that I completely leave them alone or do them all over again. Needless to say that I prefer the first option ;)

The odd thing I've noticed about the iTunes release is that even tracks that aren't changed such as "Incident at Isla Nublar" have a different overlay point (only slightly) from "the island incident" to "the falling car" and "journey to the island" I swear has a different overlay point for "the entrance of the park" from "the dinosaurs."

I'll have to reconfirm that though. I can say your right though about how the sessions are developed into a master for the release.

... I'm not specialist of that score but I thought reading you I would post the version of an edit of that track, using the whole Polydor verion, all speed corrected, along with all the DCC missing parts. To be taken as a 'mock up'. Besides a member here has observed the Polydor parts are not lossless unfortunately...

No, you couldn´t have seen it as I´ve never shared the version I made for myself. The version shared here (I forgot by whom) was pretty thorough if I remember correctly, it just didn´t correct the EQ issues. But the corrections for 'The Ultimate War' were superior than mine so my version was definitely not needed.

I've heard a lot about the TDKR HDtracks release.
It's unsettling and quite disheartening.

It really's terrible when a market aims for high definition and the entire consumer community have to wait for some poor soul to invest in the music and make a statement whether or not it's true high def or just fake.

It's been pointed out in the JWFan thread that the new master is 0.99741% the speed of the original CD (which matched the film speed). So it seems the cues were transferred at the wrong speed for the new release.

Let me explain that a little as I was the one who discovered that.

The new digitization of the film including the films audio for the Blu Ray has the music transferred at this incorrect speed. The iTunes and HD release match this which makes me think the masteres were digitized at the wrong speed but it's such a small (but significant) speed that as explained in another thread here, it could be a result of the crystal digitization of the masters.

The original film (and the DVD release) and the Album release match up. The Blu ray and the iTunes and HD release all match so that seems they are all the same source.

The .99741 % is based on the average drift too. Some were slightly more or less but generally it was all that.

It does not seem to effect pitch however.

The only issue this presents is trying to match it to the album is difficult

This HD version of the Jurassic Park score it's incredible!! I love how the spectrum analysis shows a lot of information. We can even notice where some tracks had been edited (I think). For example in track 2 "Theme from Jurassic Park" we can see how the spectrum info it's totally different in the intro part of the track, and the final part. I'm sure that's the "Woompy Ending" insert.

Great job on this! Thanks for sharing :) I must note - the previously unreleased tracks (as released, not your master) have plenty of production reverb on them - not as much as the album tracks, but it's there very much so. I think the biggest difference is the brightness of the new tracks. I don't know what my aim is by pointing that out, just an observation :)

I edit scores myself - I did the Indiana Jones definitive editions in 2007-2011 if you came across them when demonoid was around. You did one hell of a job on this; your passion and love for the score really shows in your work!! This was the last great score John Williams did - it was the last one that really took us to that 'place' we want to go with his music, and I thank you sir for finally presenting it properly :)

You matched everything up beautifully!

Much respect and gatitude :)

Williams' last great score???? Someone must not think very highly of The Lost World, The Philosopher's Stone or The Prisoner of Azkaban!

Thank you! I would have buy it myself if HDTracks let me... The country restrictions sucks! :(

A Proxyserver really helps, you should try it out sometimes.

Yes, there is some actual reverb on the previously unreleased tracks. The difference between old and new tracks is still baffling. You´re right though, the EQ is very different too. The album tracks have more brilliance, mids, less deep bass and more upper bass.

I like that you like it but I couldn´t disagree more regarding your statement that this is the last great JW score. To ignore the Star Wars prequel scores and the Harry Potter scores (Azkaban) is almost an insult, to me they are a part of the greatest scores ever written. I generally prefer what is commonly described as the "John Williams of the digital age" as that music is more complex, challenging and not so... I don´t know, 'easy'.

I wouldnt say Williams 70's 80's work was any less complex than his later works, just less balletic and frenzied (even his 70s work was somewhat frenzied, Wards Big Gun from 1941, and Superfeats from Superman)

The Get.it links still work. As usual lol. I guess it seems to be the great last man standing of hosting sites - for how long though?

Thanks again, SonicAdventure. I had the regular 2013 re-release and thought I could upgrade this great score!

Is the 24-bit~96kHz an Official release? because the Artwork looks redone customized. I'm referring to the 20 Track release.

Danger, danger, Will Robinson! All if the links in the first post are dead, except for the SolidFiles pair. And my computer's antiviruses go nuts with whatever's being downloaded from there. They've never done that before.

SolidFiles pair...antiviruses

Probably one of the ads the site uses.
Sites that rely on ads for revenue, especially non-popular sites that we've never heard of like that one, have no control over the ads they get to use.
They get their ads from a central database, which will sometimes lead to malicious ads.
They can't do anything about it unless they pay money, which no one is paying for their services (at least not enough to remove ads).

You probably also ended up clicking on an installer that those sites promote (which are not needed).
And probably clicked the wrong "download" button, which often leads to some video player that's typically just adware.

If you got an adblock enabled, you should see less crap on that SolidFiles site.
And when you click the big green button for "download", it's for their own downloader, which also probably has shareware/adware in it just gain revenue for your free services.
Instead, click the underlined text that says "Direct download link".
If you hover your mouse icon over it, it will show you the ".rar" in the status window at the bottom of your browser.
If you hover your mouse icon over the big green button (that's misleading to their installer), it will show you something else entirely in the status window at the bottom of your browser.

That's the same principle for all the mirrored sites, since they're mostly free and not_popular and have to rely on ads because you won't pay.

Hmm. SolidFiles is actually pretty fast for a free site.

Going to check the Braveheart again...

Thank you, TheSparkTank 2.1. That's exactly what I did, click on the big green button, which tried to upload who knows what, various files with numerical file names that my AVs wouldn't let aboard. Didn't even see the little Direct Download label. Should have looked more carefully.

And thank you, again, for the umpteenth tome, SonicAdventure. Your remasters are terrific. They are the way the albums should have sounded when they were released. Your work is hugely appreciated and you skill much envied. One can only wish you have access to a hidden stash of Billie Goldenberg. All best!

Thank you very much... but Jurassic Park really isn´t my best work.

Anyway, can I cuddle with you now? :)

I wish Sonic was employed by some of these film music companies so that their releases could just sound better in the first place! It's silly than a non-professional (meaning no disrespect...simply meaning not paid) has to put in a bunch of time on these things just to make them not sound like crap and be consistent. Imagine if Sonic had access to the original recording files on lots of these...

Anyway SonicAdventure, if you ever get around to doing a Jurassic Park 2.0 (perhaps with the FLAC files for the new bits), I'll be first in line!

A professional will produce better results than me - if he/she is paid enough money. And you certainly are not disrespectful when you call me a non-professional - it is the truth and I don´t mind the truth, in fact, I welcome it. I´m an amateur - and Jurassic Park is wonderful proof of that (forgive the cynicism)... I really don´t like what I did. Sound is OK, crossfades are not, they suck. At some point, I will do this Edition again using the files I bought at HDTracks.

Can't thank you enough for this one!
I had really a big problem with the quiet parts and this is so much better! I am very surprised what you can hear now!
You are doing an awsome work.
In the wake of Jurassic World I just had to listen to the Jurassic Park Score again and your version is really better than the offical one.
Wish you a very nice christmas!

Umm, you're all very nice for still wanting to hear this set. But it has been superseeded by the LLL version. Which is - mostly - better than this one. Sound quality is good enough to not be a bother so I would just buy their set. The design is also very good (apart from missing dinosaur teeth) so I'm actually thinking about asking to delete this thread.
