Has a good beat...
 
2014-01-14 01:31:35 PM  
I still don't understand how this is supposed to work. Is there some sort of sonic buttplug involved?
 
2014-01-14 01:42:16 PM  
Great, but will it play in my 8-track?
 
2014-01-14 02:03:57 PM  
I'm willing to give it a try, but selling my wife on the idea is a whole different matter.
 
2014-01-14 02:38:57 PM  
How does it stack up against a Quadraphonic Blaupunkt?
 
2014-01-14 02:41:57 PM  
Wasn't this already done with "Row row row your boat"?

Have you asked her college roommate about it yet?

The song is about Duke?

Three way is almost always more work than it's worth.
but it makes for nice stories.

The Flaming Lips yawn at two separate tracks and point lazily at their 4 CD set that was meant to be played on 4 audio systems simultaneously

You don't need a damn Quadraphonic Blaupunkt. What you need is curve ball.

This is going to fizzle harder than 3D television.
 
2014-01-14 02:45:48 PM  
Quad, man, quad.

/oh man
 
2014-01-14 02:46:44 PM  
So is this basically the modern version of the fifth man in a barbershop quartet?

... and I think I can dance to it.

That song is going to sell a lot of iProducts one day

you don't need a quadraphonic blaupunkt, you need a curve ball

he just responds with the cryptic, been there done that
 
2014-01-14 02:47:13 PM  
sounds like music. what is supposed to be so special? song is kinda spiffy though
 
2014-01-14 02:48:13 PM  
We've secretly recorded this song twice, playing one version from each channel (L/R).

Sounds like a great way to get a headache!  :P
 
2014-01-14 02:48:23 PM  
A bad 3 way format would be MMM, followed by MMF.
 
2014-01-14 02:48:40 PM  
So they are just using two channels creatively like a lot of artists did when the stereo 8-track and later cassette tape were invented?  Wow, amazing.
 
2014-01-14 02:50:23 PM  
Didn't Tool already do something like this?
 
2014-01-14 02:50:51 PM  
So it has a slight echo to it. Just turn up the reverb if you like that sort of thing.

Umm... stereo format is available on that thing with the little needle that goes in a a groove those big round things that spin.

That was actually just well done stereo spatial separation. The Who did the four track, and Emerson Lake and Palmer's Brain Salad Surgery has wonderfully done stereo spatial separation.

FTFM

Dolby 9.2 called, laughed in their face, and hung up.
 
2014-01-14 02:52:54 PM  
This is amazing. I haven't seen a cappella groups do this exact thing forever.
 
2014-01-14 02:53:01 PM  
Two songs played together to mix a third?

This hasn't been done since the 70's by disco DJs?

Because the way I read it, they've just taken mono mixes of two versions of the song and blended them together.

I don't see what's so revolutionary about this.

Or am I missing something?
 
2014-01-14 02:53:19 PM  
I still remember the good old days when stereo pretty much meant, different sounds through different channels.  This literally meant, bass in one channel and guitar in another (listen to Van Halen 1).  Or in some cases that are still used, guitar players split by channel, which is really cool when they play different parts, or on a 3rd or 5th in the scale at the same time.  I still think that sounds cool.

I can only imagine a 3rd channel would be one that takes advantage of time, in the manner of the 4th dimension.
 
2014-01-14 02:53:40 PM  
This is BS.

This is NO SUCH THING as 3-Way stero. However they records the song/songs, the playback is still through a traditional stereo.


Also, from wiki...  stereo, is a method of sound reproduction that creates an illusion of directionality and audible perspective.

So they found an interesting way to record a song......   This technique has actually been used by a large number of musicians for a very long time. It is common to record the same track multiple times and to then play them BOTH back in the recording.

I do see this as a little different since they basically did this to the entire song, but the technique has been around probably since the dawn of recording.

I honestly didn't know that. I'm too young for vinyl, I'm too young for 8 tracks honestly but I inherited a garage full of garbage and I distinctly remember the number of cheezy stereo effects on the early cassettes.

+1 would LOL again

Why haven't we had music in Surround yet anyway?

SO much this. It's a 'I did that' bragging right. (I did that).
Mono on mono is much more enjoyable.

Before recording engineers knew better, they'd do hard pans on different instruments and so on.

The art and science of it has matured dramatically, but it was not always so nicely mixed.

How much you want for her?

I have really bad speakers on my laptop, but it did sound as if a sound was located in both of my bad speakers and somewhere in the front where there is no speaker.
 
2014-01-14 02:56:44 PM  
sounds like a 3:1 surrond sound.

why?
 
2014-01-14 02:56:53 PM  
So this is the musical version of the flat bottom taco shell. They had two versions of the same song and were arguing which to play, then some little Hispanic girl wonders in and says "Why not both?"

/this genre already exists, it's called the mash up

Would like to try to sell you all on the idea....

Great, now I've got to buy another $400 gold-plated Monster cable?

Yeah, like those idiots behind the Beatles or the Beach Boys.

No no no. You just need gold plated Monster Cables attached to speakers with high-grade compression drivers with 8 ohms of impedance and sensitivity greater than 110 dB as well as a pair of subwoofers with 4 ohms of impedance and 88 dB sensitivity. They are made for rooms that are at least 40m²,

Go listen to a 5.1 Mix of "Fragile" by Yes or "To Our Children's Children's Children" by the Moody Blues or "Dark Side of the Moon" and STFU.

3 way stereo...
