How come only some of these get turned into full threads?

 

I forgot Shredhead has posted this one.

 

I listened to the Atmos track on Terminator Salvation, and it was one of, if not my favorite audio experience of all time.  The bass was excellent, deep, textured, varied.  It was an audio treat IMO.  I watched Pixels too and I thought the new Terminator was far more fun bass/audio than Pixels, even though Pixels gets a lot of compliments for its bass track.

No way!! I am going to have to pick up Ant-Man I totally forgot to stop at BB this week. I have about 40 movies to watch, so I have laying low till I catch up. I might have to slid in and pick this one up though and put it to the top of the list!

We watched it. Pick it up, it was a hoot. Everyone gave thumbs up.

Thx. I'm picking it up Monday in 3D. 

 

I'm surprised you like Paul Rudd and not Chris Platt though. It was all cuz of that dancing wasn't it? ;)

Hey Jonathan you got overheads or heigh speakers for your ATMOS setup?

That's it! Next time I pass Red Box and see a movie on the front and think "that might have good bass" I'm picking it up. I didn't rent Pixels nor Tomorrowland when I had the chance and I passed on Ant Man just a few days ago. Never again.  :P  Thanks for posting the screen caps!  :)

Ant-Man - DTS HD-MA 7.1

 

Level - 3 Stars (108.81dB Composite)

Extension - 3 Stars (16Hz)

Dynamics - 5 Stars (30.77dB)

Execution - TBD

 

Overall - TBD

 

Recommendation - TBD

 

Comments: Really enjoyed the film, rolloff similar to the Iron Man films, some clipping in LCR+LFE, but not as bad as some other films.  May be a good candidate for BEQ, as this film has some re-watchability, but Marvel has to try something other than "good guy w/ nearly same tech/powers as bad guy who appears to be more powerful but loses in the end".

Tomorrowland - DTS HDMA 7.1

 

Level - 4 Stars (111.08dB composite)

Extension - 5  Stars (1Hz)

Dynamics - 5 Stars (32.73dB)

Execution - TBD

 

Overall - TBD

 

Recommendation - TBD

 

 

Comments - Full bandwidth track, terrific sound design.  Unfortunately, clips in LCRS on loudest scenes, but didn't find it too objectionable like in T:Genisys.  Movie is not  for everyone, but I liked it.  Two very low ULF hits account for the spike down low.  They are there on purpose.

Terminator: Genisys  - Dolby Atmos (7.1 Analyzed)

 

Level - 5 Stars (114.55dB composite)

Extension - 3 Stars (18Hz)

Dynamics - 4 Stars (25.17dB)

Execution - TBD

 

Overall - TBD

 

Recommendation - TBD

 

 

Comments:  LOUD.  Loudness War loud.  Only 0.04dB lower than loudest film ever measured, Transformers 4.  Clips on every channel.  Good nostalgia moments, but otherwise I think they have stretched every dollar out of this franchise that they can.  Also very weird seeing Daenerys Targaryen without dragons around.

Max: looks like soft limiting but it is well under a WCS and when I zoomed in on the highest

level parts it didn't look like they were playing with square waves.

Thanks for all the graphs Max!

 

Any chance you could graph San Andreas at some point? Not that the bass is anything special (it's LOUD, but not that deep subjectively), but I am more curious to see how bad this track clips (if it does). I found the audio on this one to be harsh to some degree and the overall sound design reminded me of STID which is not really a good thing! Track just seemed LOUD and compressed to my ears, but I could be wrong which is why I am curious to see it graphed if you get time at some point. No worries if not. :)

Mission:Impossible Rogue Nation - Dolby ATMOS (TrueHD 7.1 Analyzed)

 

Level - 4 Stars (110.45dB composite)

Extension - 5 Stars (1Hz)

Dynamics - 4 Stars (26.57dB)

Execution - TBD

 

Overall - TBD

 

post-20-0-67047400-1450273134.jpg

 

Comments - Terrific technical production value here.  No clipping found.  Great use of rear channels, with some very strong hits in both rear surrounds.  While the level was kept in check and not as loud as the loudest out there, I will take this clean presentation over a loud, clipped mess any time.  The more fidelity in your playback system, the more you will appreciate this.

 

ULF Highlight (for those that can resolve it: 1:02:00 to 1:07:30.  It is there on purpose, and a small room with lots of displacement and 3Hz capability will know it is there.

 

Midbass Highlight ~1hr 14min.  If you don't have any suckouts in the 100-200Hz region, this will rattle you.

 

Great to see a few films this year with LF extension and clean presentations, especially in 'blockbuster' type films.

Thanks for the graph and comments, it sounds promising!

I can't believe any mastering studio has this sort of capability :huh:  so kudos to the sound designer(s) for including it, knowing most will never play it back!

San Andreas - Dolby Atmos (TrueHD 7.1 Analyzed)

 

Level - 5 Stars (113.79 dB composite)

Extension - 2 Stars (21Hz)

Dynamics - 3 Stars (23.82dB)

Execution - TBD

 

Overall - TBD

 

Recommendation - TBD

 

Comments - High SPL and rolled off (like Thor and Pacific Rim), but ZERO clipping (unlike Thor and Pacific Rim).  This is non-dynamic high SPL done right.  Good to see a a clean presentation in a loud film.  I'm sure significant digital compression was used as from a zoomed out-perspective, I expected to see clipping at -0.5dB everywhere, but no flat-tops were found upon closer inspection.
