In Reply to: RE: Buena Vista Social Club missing center channel - ?!? - can you check please? posted by Head_Unit on January 08, 2022 at 09:15:31
I checked both my file ripped from the DVD-A and the original disc and, for both, there is nothing audible coming out of my center speaker. Jriver identifies it as 6 channels but its spectrum analyzer shows that the center channel is >30dB down from the other main channels.
So, effectively, this is a 4.1 channel, 24/96 recording.
Curiously, the DVD (not DVD-A) varies track by track. Some are 4.1 (especially those that are of the recording studio work) and others are 5.1.
Thanks for checking! That is SO weird, I wonder if that was really the mix decision, or some kind of authoring/mastering screwup...
I think it is intentional since it is somewhat consistent in the movie where they used the 4.1 in the scenes of the recording sessions and 5.1 elsewhere (mostly).
