High Resolution Recordings?

Are there any high resolution recordings being traded here? CD audio is 16-bit/44.1khz, and high resolution stuff on DVD-Audio or SA-CD is typically 24-bit/96khz.

Re: High Resolution Recordings?

It's not gonna happen with an SA-CD, but ripping a DVD-A (from your own collection of course) is trivial these days:

as is MVI and HDAD. They're even releasing high resolution audio mixes on Blu-Ray. Check this out:

Re: High Resolution Recordings?

how many tapers here record in 6 channel stereo ?

see where im going.. only official releases would be offered in such a format.
most 'outtakes' of multi-channel recordings are really 'outfakes' from official recordings.

plus most people dont have a DVD-A player anyway - the format never took off & yes blu-ray will bury dvd-a format for sure.

i have seen dvd audio discs here - but its just high bit-rate PCM disc..not a DVD-A.

Re: High Resolution Recordings?

Some tapers have released their recordings in both 16-bit resolution and 24-bit resolution. Not sure if that is what your interest is in. If so, just search the torrents page with "24-bit" and you'll get a listing.

Re: High Resolution Recordings?

direwolf-pgh,

I think we're talking about different things. I'm not interested in more than 2 channels. I am interested in high resolution digital music. High resolution and 6 channels are completely different things.

U2Lynne,

Thanks for the link. Exactly what I needed.

By the way, here's a great resource, although they've been down for hours now:

you did ask for DVD-A & SA-CD recordings, did you not ?

I think you changed your question is the more appropriate answer.

I didnt know about that DVD-A ripper..so that was cool to learn.
not that Im going to use it. but its all good buddy.

i play nice in technobabble relax.

so your real question should have been/is now/was: are there any 24bit recordings here ? yes.

not really. most high resolution DVD-A are 6 channel.
Almost all DVD-A discs include a high resolution 5.1 mix and a high resolution stereo (2.0) mix. Oftentimes the stereo mix is actually a higher resolution than the 5.1 mix. Here's an example:

http://www.cduniverse.com/productinfo.asp?pid=6307572

Scroll down to where it says 24-bit.

Re-read my original question bro. That's exactly what I asked. I then compared the resolution of CD to that of DVD-A and SA-CD in case some people didn't know what high resolution was.

5.1 = 5 surround channels + 1 low frequency channel = 6 channel audio. was this part of your original question.. no you're changing the question again. why i dont know.

im not your bro, bro.
most recordings here are 24/48 bro.
not 24/96, not DVD-A and certainly not SACD..which is neither, bro.
I read your question - it was poorly constructed imo, bro.

SACD audio is stored in a format called Direct Stream Digital (DSD), which differs from the conventional PCM used by the compact disc or conventional computer audio systems.

DSD is 1-bit, has a sampling rate of 2.8224 MHz

SACD is a no go, but it's easy to author and burn a 2 channel DVD-A from WAV or FLAC files of several different resolutions with several different software programs. See http://24bit.turtleside.com/

DVD-Audiofile is excellent and free.

This has been covered a million times here in technobabble btw Wolf

Some ppl make 5.1 mixes when there is a SBD and an AUD recording available for a show, it's done in post processing. I think there are even live 5.1 mixes for live broadcasts of shows and games, and this is done through mixing, but the recording itself is multitrack.

I agree with this. There can be standard resolution stereo, standard resolution surround sound, high resolution stereo, and high resolution surround sound.

i'd be interested to know what 5.1 audience recordings you've come across [non-commercial releases]...i've never seen/heard any tapers running surround rigs, would definitely like to hear one of if you have any
