By some miracle I managed to download all 7 zips with "Zero KB free space" on my HD by the end.  If any one of the files was 1KB bigger they would not have all fit.  That's one hella impressive fluke.  Of course, now there's the dilemma of not being able to unzip them due to the no space situation.  Ah well, more IDM this way.  Downloading music and being unable to listen to it.

my ex-girlfriend and a very good friend that died recently was with me on these concerts. can't really enjoy listening to these even if they are the best live gig I have seen by AE so far

it’s funny to me that other people also try to make music lmao

Interestingly they're mastered to 0.0db maximum peak amplitude instead of -0.xdb. So if you convert to MP3 you should bring it down by ~0.3 before conversion to prevent MP3 artifacts from causing clipping, I guess (is this even still an issue?)

there is nothing interesting about this

MP3 artifacts are the new surface noises!

Incomplete without?

If I remember correctly, the vinyl version has "complete with surface noise"?

Don't we all love that pleasantly warm and gentle digital clipping? So fuzzy and beautiful ?

i think mac pushes its own lossless format, alac, maybe that's why bleep offers wav instead of flac. i always think the same thing when i see a wav, why not flac?

 

regarding mp3s... autechre is a prime example of music that deserves lossless. though, for me, i avoid lossy all the time. but i guess i have more of an ear for it. i'm actually good at recognizing the bitrate of mp3s. i hear the difference between 320 mp3 and flac mainly in the high frequencies, which makes sense because high-frequency vibrations are smaller and therefor contribute more to fine detail. there's a crisp crunchiness in lossless that is blurred out in mp3s, even 320s. i think if you tried an A/B comparison with something with a lot of sharp-edged, high-frequency sounds, like 6IE.CR, you would see it. mp3 dulls the edges.

 

24 vs 16 bit... i'm not there yet ?

Anything 320 and above sounds satisfying and sturdy enough to me in all settings (although the wav/flac is discernible). The 256s and 128s can be acceptable (although recent AE would no doubt suffer) on headphones but copying, converting or playing through speakers brings out their unreliable fragility.

That's probably the reason, yes.

And yeah, I mean, if you use tools like a brickwall band pass filter and sweep it up while really isolating the frequencies you will hear the difference. There is just more in the high end, you can go further up and still hear stuff. But if I listen normally I can't tell much of a difference between 320mp3 and lossless, though maybe there is a little less of that ultra low frequency rumble that makes the air vibrate so that u actually feel the air pressure in front of the sub woofer with the MP3s, but barely noticeable and only at high volumes, if not entirely placebo. But for listening on my phone via crappy headphones MP3s are convenient. Regarding bit depth, I guess it's only, if at all, audible at extremely high volumes so the volume differences between the bits might actually scale up to an audible size, but unlikely 

lol

not enough free time to listen them yet.. are these good as in "cool! this is new autechre music so it's good!" or as in "this shit is album level"?

nah, it's DOPE - new Autechre music level of dope! ? 

I'm going down the list one set at a time, really taking the time with these - so much goodness!

Yeah, this is pretty much album level, imo. Definitely hearing some tracks in these sets which would shine on a proper album. Would be interesting to hear the "definitive" album versions of these tracks, as well. Also, these newer live-sets are more varied than the previous sets. Which is a good thing. Might be representative for the coming "albums" as well, i hope.

Put the sets in chronlogical order and blasted them all while working from home today.. so much awesome! And agree seems lots of variation between sets.

Wasn't always paying attention to which one was playing but Melbourne particularly seemed to stand out.

Have listened to three so far and there is definitely a lot more variation in these, which is greatly appreciated. So many sick parts and it's all so new. Gonna take awhile...

      We've been blessed with not one but TWO great AE releases in a short span of time, with 20 great tracks to consume, analyze, and absorb - but overall, which one is the better of the two?

      Legit introduction? Thoughts?
      Anywhoo props for including the Buck Tick remix, definition of timeless. Those negative edge bass drums... mmmmh!
