Synd du ikke var på HFK temakveld i Kristiansand i går, Morten.
Mye snakk om ripping der som du garantert hadde hatt noe å bidra med.
f.eks "HDCD- 24bit rippe ??"

Ouch. det gikk jeg glipp av, ja.
Når det gjelder HDCD så går det fint å rippe det med EAC (dette er helt normal CDDA), og windows media player vil da dekode denne informasjonen.
Det finnes også en hdcd.exe som man kan bruke på wav filene for å lage en ny fil slik at man får med peak & gain ext.
HDCD allows the use of three features: peak extend, gain adjustment and reconstruction filter switching. Windows media player supports peak extend and gain adjustment, and it has hence been possible to fully implement these features.
Filter switching, however, only makes sense when you are upsampling, something which wmp doesn't do, and there's hence no reference to implement it from. Investigation of various test CDs and various (usually contradictory) literature has led to the conlusion that there are only two filters available at playback, the normal filter and the transient filter.
The reason for this conlusion is that of the three bits of each hdcd code remaining after peak extend and gain adjustment, wmp abandons two, but explicitly stores the remaining one (suggesting that this is the only important remaing bit, giving only two options).
An ivestigation of when this bit was set was what lead to the conclusions that it is intended to cover transients. If you take a look at,
the right channel is untouched, and the left channel shows that value of this remaining bit. It is set to for a period covering each of the drum beats, and similar behaviour is observed with many other tracks.
The intention is to try to add upsampling to the code once the filter's responses are known. I'm hoping that someone with a hardware HDCD decoder (which should be upsample and switch filters) will be able to play the following test tracks through it to ascertain the impulse / frequency response,
Index of /~cjk32/hdcd/transient_filter
These are a frequency sweep and an impulse train with hdcd codes embedded to either enable the normal or trainsient filter (_nf.wav, _tf.wav). If anyone does have a go with these, please don;t put the impulse train through speakers (or amp?), I can't imagine it'll do them any good.

Metallica - Six Feet Down Under EP
Spesialutgivelse i forbinnelse med årets Australia-turne, og siden jeg skal på konserten i Perth 23/10 syntes jeg denne var kjekk å ha
This eight song limited edition EP is only available in Australia/New Zealand and here in the Met Store! Released in celebration of the band's sold out tour there in the Fall of 2010, there are two songs recorded from each of the previous four Trans-Tasman tours in 1989, 1993, 1998, and 2004 and none of these songs have been released before as live “b-sides.” This EP was compiled from fan submissions of bootlegs, sound board tapes from the vault, and live multi-track recordings. The sound on a few tracks is well, “bootleggy,” but all part of the fun!
1. Eye of the Beholder - Recorded live on May 4, 1989 at Festival Hall in Melbourne
2. ...And Justice For All - Recorded live on May 4, 1989 at Festival Hall in Melbourne
3. Through the Never - Recorded live on April 8, 1993 at the Entertainment Centre in Perth
4. The Unforgiven - Recorded live on April 4, 1993 at the National Tennis Centre in Melbourne
5. Low Man's Lyric (Acoustic) - Recorded live on April 11, 1998 at the Entertainment Centre in Perth
6. Devil's Dance - Recorded live on April 12, 1998 at the Entertainment Centre in Perth
7. Frantic - Recorded live on January 21, 2004 at the Entertainment Centre in Sydney
8. Fight Fire With Fire - Recorded live on January 19, 2004 at the Entertainment Centre in Brisbane

Daniel Nelson - Daniel Nelson
There was not much going on in the Westcoast scene over the course of the last couple of years. Even more so when it comes to new artists to step into the limelight. Most of the new talents that managed to gain some attention came from Scandinavia like Peter Friestedt or Corin & Edman.
With Daniel Nelson a fresh new face is finally stepping to the forefront who knows the Californian way of life from his own experience and his songs reflect this. The connoisseur knows this kind of music very well from bands like Maxus, Pages, Airplay, Sneaker and Ambrosia.
When he was looking out for an arranger and producer Daniel met Ed Smart, a guy who exactly knew what Daniels songs should sound like. For the recordings studio musicians were picked by hand in L.A. and every single one of them was capable to create this perfect mixture of AOR, Smooth Jazz, Soul and R’n’B. The names of session pros like the guitar players Nick Brown and Allen Hinds or percussionist Brian Kilgore can mostly be read in the credits of Smooth Jazz greats like Michael Paulo, Dave Koz, Dan Siegel and Warren Hill, but in the past they were also booked by Robbie Williams, Cock Robin or The Goo Goo Dolls. Another great cast of players is the Vine Street Horns who are the regular horn section of none other than the mighty Phil Collins. With so much musical competence it’s not surprising that the sound of the five tracks got absolutely perfect and there is nothing left to be desired.
The opener of this Westcoast cycle is “Madelynn”, it’s a bit funky with a Soul and R’n’B touch and Nick Brown adds his brilliant guitar licks from start to finish, crowning his work with an amazing solo. The horn section also contributes to the fine sound with its accentuated playing.
Next up is “Is It You ?” a cover version of the Lee Ritenour classic which is pretty close to the original and it fits in perfectly with Daniel’s own compositions.
The following trip to Camarillo is a wonderful ballad that shows a lot of feel in Daniel’s wonderful emotional voice which is supported by a smooth arrangement with piano, nylon string guitar and tasteful percussions. The songs theme picks up a well known former mental hospital north west of Los Angeles. Ambrosia were also “Ready For Camarillo” when they led their “Life Beyond L.A.” and rumor has it that The Eagles also got inspired by this facility and its voices down the corridor when they wrote their Westcoast classic “Hotel California”.
The song that rocks the most is “Here in L.A.”, on the basis of a pumping rhythm Nick Brown takes his chances in playing his guitar on the rhythm and lead tracks in the familiar Lukather / Landau / Graydon / Thompson-way. It’s a tune in the Toto – The Seventh One vein and Daniel himself has played the piano, besides that his vocals show another facet here, an almost aggressive one. This stylistic element supports the song lyrics displaying a critical view on Los Angeles. A city which is by no means as glamorous as it might seem at first glance.
“Emily” is the closing ballad and this time Allen Hinds shows his guitar skills. Covering a wide spectrum with solid rhythm work in the beginning, an amazing solo during the bombastic middle part of the song and perfectly placed guitar licks during the fade out of this impressive Westcoast experience.
In the late 70s and early 80s David Foster had an assembly line to produce songs like these. Since he went into Westcoast retirement we can call ourselves happy that Daniel Nelson is a master in bringing the traditional Westcoast sound to life with fascinating arrangements and with the best sound you can possibly think of.

Mark Costa - Textures
Sydney bassist Mark Costa is proud to present his debut CD, “Textures”. This CD features eight original compositions written by Mark with a fresh contemporary jazz sound comparable to the Yellowjackets, Pat Metheny and Tribal Tech. Through his post-graduate studies of the Schillinger System, Mark has found a new compositional voice that blends his love of jazz, funk and latin rhythms with rich melodic and harmonic textures.

Rod Kinny - Higher Self
The recording of what became "Higher Self" began eleven months after the release of "The Rod Kinny EP". I had bought a copy of Ambrosia's Anthology CD and began listening and rediscovering not only how much I loved their hits, but a full spectrum containing their deeper more progressive works which much of the public is unaware of. As I kept listening more & more, I began to wonder what the band members were doing currently. I discovered Ambrosia's co-founder Joe Puerta was still touring with the band and owns a recording studio in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
I kept listening to Anthology and decided to pursue my idea to record at Joe's studio with him as producer. At the time I was expecting scheduling conflicts due to travel between Minneapolis & Milwaukee, Ambrosia's tour schedule, and considerations such as "can I afford this guy?" I came in contact with one of his artists who as it turned out had a terrific CD produced by Joe and strongly recommended him. That was enough for me, I was ready to take the plunge.
The first session was in January 2007. I would book studio time every three months, drive to Milwaukee, do an all day session, travel home, repeat in 90 days. As time went by I felt my enthusiasm build after each session. Not only was Joe a very skilled musician & producer, his staff & session musicians were amazing & very experienced. With all the shared enthusiasm, it really gave me the confidence to bring to life my very best music. Forty months later and with contributions from some old friends in Minneapolis, "Higher Self" is here. It may not seem to some a very practical approach to recording though I think it was wise. This CD means a great deal to me. Enjoy!

The Blaster`s potente roots-album fra 2004, 4-11-44, har flere gode rock n`roll-låter. Dette forførte meg til å tro at soloalbumet fra en av de impliserte, Dave Alvin, kunne være av samme slag. Men ach og nei: Amerikansk roots-musikk suger like mye næring fra hestehold og lassokasting som fra blues og storbyrytmer.
The Best of the Hightone Years er en tårekryster med flere gode sentimentale og opprørende låter om fattigdom, svik og utro kvinnebekjentskaper. Denne må jeg nok innta i små doser. Men måten musikken framføres på er roots, antar det kalles contemporary country/americana. Stemningsfullt og til tider svingende fullt av liv, så får man tåle at det kalles køntri her hjemme. Tar den med på gamlehjemmet.
