EDIT: Nevermind, not worth it. This should be about Tempus whatever the fugit's called.

As an engineer I’m getting real annoyed by the two people who don’t know what clipping actually is and pretend they do.
I agree with Muffin that it isn’t worth but let me say this:

Instead of throwing some very condescending statements and insults maybe share your knowledge and enlighten us all since you’re an “engineer”.
Even though my knowledge is limited, I make music and I’m familiar with audio.
By the way, I find the fact that you chose to ignore what I wrote about the mix and just focused on the term clipping to very much trolling on your part instead of engaging in an actual informative argument or discussion like an adult.

Not trying to be condescending, just trying to stay on topic. I apologize for hurting feelings. Point is a signal can cause clipping, or a signal can be clipped in entirety, but there’s no such thing as a signal having clipping in it. The first isn’t relevant to this discussion, and the second can only be proven with a reference to an unclipped original, which we don’t have. Audacity can’t find clipping. Clip meters are just peak meters, which isn’t useful for mastered material, as they are normalized to some reference level, and if that level is 0 dBFS, a peak meter will of course find peaks. Peak meters are useful in the mixing stage where you are keeping everything far below the mastered reference level. True peak meters are even better.

Just say ‘it sounds too saturated to me’ or ‘it lacks air compared to X,’ for these are subjective terms you’re entitled to.

What part of this in on topic again?

Thank you replying and sharing your knowledge. That's the purpose of starting a discussion; to share opinions and learn new information. I misspoke and threw technical terms which may not have been accurate or correct.

Also, didn't mean to derail the thread. I though having a discussion about the sound department and the sound work of previous films is relevant, especially when there's speculation and certain collaborators were mentioned. Apologies.

Even though I don't think I've seen any film edited by Lame, I'm actually very excited by this change-up, should be interesting to see how different of a feel this could have compared to Nolan's past work.

It must be pretty cool to go from all these 10 million dollar movies to a Nolanbuster.

The shots in the boat had my entire audience at an IMAX 70mm showing jumping.
The sound of the Luftwaffe during the film's very first air raid is the most terrifying thing ive ever heard in a theater.
Right???? :clap:

Don't forget the terrifying tick. I heard echos for days...

So judging by what wWhereAmI? said, we can almost assume that Hoyte is returning, I'm so fucking happy !
