Honour and Blood from Tank has one of my favorite metal album covers, although I dislike the logo and wish they chose a flatter typeface. Here are some metal covers I like, although these aren't necessarily my favorite records. I don't even mind ones that look amateurish at all as long as they look rad. >>755 Not a Voivod fan, but I always loved that first one. I never saw the second, but that looks pretty cool too.

It's great.
Tool is fucking boring
It's past your bedtime, son
It's their weakest album.
>>96 It's the same thing as their other works. They brought nothing good to the table.
>>97 This. They're a nice sleep aid, but that's it.

Is being an audiophile a curse?
I think it is
3 posts omitted.
It's a curse in the sense that the technology exists for perfect--as in, it sounds like the band or orchestra is there--however, the record studios aren't interested in trying, and the mainstream speaker companies (Sonus Faber, B&W, Kef [to a lesser degree]) produce speakers with fundamental sonic defects out of laziness. Sean Olive at Harman has done a lot of work on what humans prefer for sound--it's all scientific, all double-blind--but no-one seems to care about trying to fix the fundamental issues with audio reproduction. Ah well.

Is audiophile people who don't enjoy cheap bad chip quality 16 bits low 48HZ cattle audio quality when there's way better audio equipment upgrade for a reasonable sum?

Or is it audiophile idiots who keeps spending outrageous money(because they can) on fucking bullshit like cables and super expensive meme audio gear that virtually offers no difference compared to what's good value?

The same problem exists with musical instruments, why would you spend 100K for an old smelly stradivarius with it's characterisitc sound( defects)? Why buy a Bosendorfer when you could buy a Yamaha? Get where this is going?

>fundamental sonic defects out of laziness
It's not out of laziness though it's an intentional profit move. If popular manufacturers (who can often cheaply and easily)eliminate all the defective qualities in their low end it would eliminate their higher end market. Which means loss of profit. So there is no incentive. On the other side this means smaller entry brands however have more of an incentive to cheaply and easily fix problems and produce a good product at a reasonable price.
>>215 I think you make valid points except about old string instruments like the cello or violin. There is clear cause for seeking these out as the inherent value in them is more than just the sound they make. You really cannot compare manufacturing and product advertisement to something that can have historical value or even just familial value, or traditional. No reason to call them defective either when they aren't. Fuck you.
>>136 I'd imagine. I'm glad that most YouTube rips are up to my standards. In terms of recordings I'm the opposite of an audiophile though. I always imagine how much more I'd like music that was recorded to a cheap cassette tape. I love the sound of wow and flutter, tape compression, and even the momentary dropouts they sometimes have. >>215 >why would you spend 100K for an old smelly stradivarius with it's characterisitc sound( defects)? "Defects" are in the eye of the beholder and are sonically desirable to a lot of people. Just look at the connoisseurs of classic analog synths who strongly prefer things like voice tuning offsets over the more precise modern analog synthesizers.

How is this cuckoldish looking Swedish band from the 70s so fucking good...?
They were extraordinarily talented.
Literal Nazi eugenics. Not even joking, look it up.
>>754 And ironically it was Anni-Frid Lyngstad who was the Lebensborn babby, and not the more stereotypically Nordic Agnetha Faeltskog.

Sound Effects Gastarbeiter 11/05/2019 (Tue) 23:10:17 No.183 [Reply]
Are there good sound designs in games, movies or any other material that you really enjoy?
Personally, I really like the drills used in techno/industrial songs.
I like the sound effects you'd hear in '80s arcade games (or even on systems like the Atari 2600). Robotron 2084 is an example of one where the sound work gets me fired up. Ben Burtt's Star Wars sound effects were admittedly fantastic, even if I dislike pew-pew weapon sounds outside of old video games.
