Star Tunnel Remastered!

Post by BleuLlama » Jun Mon 23, 2014 1:36 pm

For all of you Star Tunnel Junkies out there, I've just deployed a remastered version of the entire channel. I spent time making all sorts of tweaks to every single track to make it sound as good as it possibly can. Glitches in the recordings have been removed. Unnecessary dialogue has been removed. All tracks have been equalized and normalized so that all tracks sound consistent with each other. The mono tracks have also had a little bit of magic worked on them (Bibbity bobbity boo!) to make them have depth and sound really nice.

I should note that two tracks have also been added to the lineup. I found a really good recording of "Mount Bop" by Mike Brassell, as well as one of the newer ride-music tracks from Michael Giacchino. I've rearranged the playlist a little to accommodate these.

I've been listening and re-listening to the results on a couple different headphones and in my car, trying to find more bits to tweak and fix, and I think I'm done.

I hope you all enjoy the results as much as I do!! :wave:
1978: WDW MK, River Country -- Fort Wilderness
1985: WDW MK, EPCOT, River Country -- Polynesian
2011: DLR, DCA (one day)
2012: WDW Poly (one evening)
All of that, and part of me is still there.

Here's the new lineup:

1. Area Music
2. Starport Seven-Five
3. Aquarium (Dick Dale)
4. Ride Music (Michael Giacchino)
5. Mount Bop (Mike Brassell)
6. Space Warp
7. Com Chat
8. Space Noise
9. Exit Music (1975)
10. Star Tunnel
11. 3rd Tunnel (Live)

"Starport Seven-Five", "Aquarium", "Com Chat", "Space Noise", "Exit Music(1975)", and "Star Tunnel (with its end cut off)" used to be one very long track titled simply "Score". I have broken them up so that this will flow nicer.

1985: WDW MK, EPCOT, River Country -- Polynesian

Question about the 3rd Tunnel (live): are the girls talking about "three times" gone or am I just catching the song after they've gone by? I know, weird question but I've gotten used to hearing them.
We are all a little weird
And life's a little weird,
And when we find someone whose
Weirdness is compatible with ours,
We join up with them and fall in
Mutual weirdness and call it Love.”
― Dr. Seuss

Off topic but!, MadEye, your avatar is spectacular. Is that a picture of a T-shirt? Perfection.

Did you give these tracks to Rich to replace existing or add to the main repository?

Just to let you know that I can hear the odd popping sounds during the 'Exit Music (1975)' track! It's a shame because the old version didn't have them. Sorry to post annoying and bad news! :roll:

I am glad you have taken the time to create and tweak this stream. Now I don't have to keep researching where to buy the Star Tunnel song.
