• In Response to: Audible distortions in Track 21 :-( (André)

Once I got a legit copy of the CD I noticed the same thing. What makes me different is I’m a recording engineer So I email the remastering copy for their comments towards this accusation and the transaction is as followed:
My Email:
"Recently you mastered the film score Sinbad-Legend of the Seven Seas. Many people including myself have been noticing distortion primarily in the right channel through more powerful sections of the score. Specifically, a considerable amount of digital distortion was noticed on track 21 between 3:51-4:29. This would be a rare occasion for Abbey Road to overrun levels, and although I’m only a student majoring in recording, my guess is it was during the remastering phase (as normalization is applied). Although at some parts it sounds like one microphone somewhere around the brass or maybe cellos was overdriven. I am curious though to find out (as well as others) to what happened and any insight would be helpful (public or not). If it was Abbey Road that faltered please let me know and I will contact them.
If you are curious to who else has been noticing, the film score enthusiast page has comments posted at ."
Their Reply:
"There was an ever so slight amount of distortion on the files that we received to master from and after requesting a second set we completed the project to the satisfaction of the composer. It was mixed in pro tools I believe. When you eq in mastering everything is eq'd including distortion unfortunately. Thanks for your input. DNA "
I emailed Abbey Road Studios in London, one of many I have sent with no responce. If I do get one I will post, but I don't have much hope. From the web site, the engineer for Sinbad is not normally on the Abbey Road recording staff, so maybe it was just a one time thing.
