Analyzing Waveforms of Heavy Hitting Movies

The Martian


220px-The_Martian_film_poster.jpg


DTS-HD MA 7.1


 


Unfiltered mix with a lot of love for the 10Hz and under crowd.  Largest transient is at the end of


the movie which peaks out at -6.14dB from a WCS.  Most of the peaks are around -9.6dB from a


WCS though so a boost in level will probably be preferred if that is safe for the system used for playback.


The mix is an interesting departure from the norm with long passages of low frequency rumble while


still presenting wide bandwidth transient hits.  Probably my favorite mix from a R. Scott film.

Could I do a request for "Everest" at around 1:16:10 (or thereabout)?

 

It is where the cloud wave hits Jason Clarke's character as he is lowering another climber down.

I'll keep an eye out for it.  Is it a good flick?

It is decent, nothing special in the plot department and don't expect documentary level accuracy. However, the visual and sound are really good.

Everest


220px-Everest_poster.jpg


Atmos dowmixed to 7.1


 


Let's get ready to RUUUUMMMBLE!!!  Lots of filtered in the 30's rumble with only a handful


of not very noteworthy blips of 20Hz and down sneaking through the mix at a lower level.


Also the movie was so depressing it made me want to off myself like Ronda Rousey.


-4.79dB from a WCS

^ Thank you for that.

 

The aim when the cloud front hits was to move air (which the mix does in a cinema), but in the home environment is a let down.

 

When I watched this on a friend's system, there was slight distortion (<1 sec) during the 1:16:50 section, which I have never heard even during War of the Worlds.

That was this guy ^

This is the highest voltage peak of the movie.  I heard that distortion sound you are talking about too.  I think that sound was added into the mix for effect.  They were probably mixing square waves into the layers.

Spectre


220px-Spectre_poster.jpg


DTS-HD MA 7.1


 


Starts off within the first ten minutes with the loudest transient at -2.95dB from a WCS.  


A higher level mix than the past few big movies with mostly explosion rumble and only


a couple lower level transient hits.  Not the worst rumble I've heard/seen but there's 


nothing noteworthy at or below 20Hz and pretty stock sounds in the sub band.
