Re: "I'm a Big Sister..." thread.
Have just downloaded and am listening now - sublime is the word!!

I've obviously got the reformed 192kbs version - however, I can't open the quicktime images - but I will see what version of qt I have and msg again.

Did you try renaming the file (something.mov)? I had the same problem...

Crisis averted, indeed.

I couldn't tell a lick of a difference, but thanks again for keeping on top of things team UW.

I think clipping/limiting is much worse than a 16000 lowpass. Look what they did to old classics (on 1992-2002):
Pearls Girl (STITI top, 1992-2002 bottom, both normalized to show the difference)
Dirty Epic (dubno top, 1992-2002 bottom)
You'll definately lose 'punch' here.

Thank god that they did not do that to their new release.
ha, i never even really noticed that but yeah it's quite a difference.
I do love the "open" sound of STITI, even though you have to turn up the volume a bit more than most modern releases, at least you get dynamics.

I've corrected this - and the new zip is up for you all to download at your leisure. Lucky we let you download more than once really!

Very sorry to you all and thank you for being so on the case.......
Thanks for correcting this. I did say in this post that:

and I'm happy to say that it was the case. Have a little faith next time will you?

I hate to say "I told you so" but... "I told you so".

Re: "I'm a Big Sister..." thread.
I didn't realise which version of Quicktime I had and the stupid auto-updater doesn't tell you that version 7 exists. I don't want itunes, so I'll try the VLC player and the the QT stand alone if it doesn't work.

I think I'll just keep the 160 version for now.

Re: "I'm a Big Sister..." thread.
i'm just playing "I'm a big sister..." over and over. It's so multifaceted and full of subtle yet effective sounds. and though i'm not a huge fan of ambient music, this release does what UW always do so well... challenge expectations and take you on an audio journey. With the preference for vocal sounds and samples rather than lyrics, the voice as instrument is explored here perhaps more than any other UW release.

Just wondering, though...are the tracks listed anywhere? Jan, i appreciate your making the cue sheet...just not sure what to make of the last piano bit. Is it a separate track? Interesting that it's not mixed with the previous.
