  7. MM, sign up for a youtube account and upload your videos. It's quite easy to upload the videos on there but if you need help just ask. Once your done, just post a link to your youtube page. I'd love to see them!

  8. This version of the song sounds a lot "softer" than what's on the album, not that I'm complaining! Thanks to everyone for sharing their audio and video! And thank you Craig as always.
    Cure fans are THE BEST!!

  12. I'm downloading Brian's torrent as we speak. If nobody has done it by then, I will convert it to high quality MP3 (with the taper's blessing) and post it on a sharing site.

    Lordy, I am so pissed I was not there... I should have hitchiked my way to CA with Cat... And we would have fought for Andy's attention, that's for sure! :p

  13. Pierre, go ahead and convert to mp3. More fans will be able to give it a listen that way.

  14. I'm uploading to Megaupload as we speak. I didn't even have time to listen to it yet! :p

    Recoded to 190 MP3 using dbpoweramp. Will post the link when it is done. My upload speed is quite slow this morning...

    Someone calls my boss and explain her why I am late this morning!

  15. OK. Upload complete. Here is the link.

  22. it should be done uploading in about 40 min but i am going out tonight so maybe late tonight.

  23. Andy, thanks for taking care of the higher bitrate for those wanting it.

    btw, any problems with the 24 bite files?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Andy, I can do ya one better on that picture. :) I have a poster with that image on it. In fact, It was the first Cure poster I ever bought, sometime in 1994, if I recall correctly.

    crowbi-wan, I'm not sure if you're aware of this, but FLAC compressed files can't retain a 24 bit audio structure. When compressed, the audio drops to 16 bit quality, as the codec wasn't designed to handle the additional 8 bits. Still exceptional, but not at the quality of the original recording.

  25. brian, didn't have a problem converting the files. i wish when i converted them to mp3 though i would have raised the gain as they're lower sound volume than most of my stuff. oh well. left it untouched.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Shawn, the latest version of FLAC has no trouble converting/playing 24 bit FLACs. I have a bunch of them. Have even converted them back to waves just to see if they retain the correct bits. Now, mp3s might automatically get downsampled, which is not the ideal way to go about doing that. But hey, as long as it's alright on the listeners ears ; )

    ReplyDelete
  27. Andy, yes the volume is low. That's part of the problem I'm having with my recording gear. Maybe you've noticed some hiss on there. That's from me raising the level just a touch. Anymore and it would be much more annoying. Playing around with the EQ helps. That's something I plan to do, but just wanted to get the audio out there asap.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Brian, that's interesting. I didn't know that there was a more recent version of FLAC that could handle 24 bit audio.

    Any possibility of someone posting the 24 bit FLAC files to something other than Dimeadozen? I'm not exactly torrent-savvy, and my computer doesn't seem to like them.

  29. Thnk you very much to Crowbi-wan for taping this wonderful show for us!

    And to Pierre and Andyhecurefan for decoding it to mp3 and putting it up to megaupload - otherwise I wouldn't be able to enjoy it, 'cause I don't have a dimedozen account! Thank you!!!
