Hello everyone, this thread is mainly to discuss the audio quality of the original version of We'll Meet Again, as recorded from BBC HD TV abd uploaded to YouTube with very little adjustment of the audio. It is therefore true to the original broadcast. Here it is:
I've now uploaded a test version with improved audio levels (for some) - I've partly done what BBC Radio 2 did, raised the audio levels at the start and compressed it all. But I've done it less than they did so it's still closer to the original. Here it is:
The latter has an obscure title so it won't easily be found by searching, and no comments are at present allowed. I haven't decided whether or not to leave the new version up on YouTube as I think it will dilute interest in the original and anyway much of the audio improvement can be gained by turning up the volume at the start.
However, if I decide to post temporarily a downloadable version in the forum, which version would you like? Please say so if your own computer cannot play HD videos smoothly.
This thread is to discuss the broadcast and upload quality and may be locked in a week or two. Comments about the performance itself should continue in the main Festival of Remembrance thread.
The loveliest, sweetest flower that bloomed in paradise, and the first that died, has rarely blossomed since on mortal soil. It is so frail, so delicate, a thing, it is gone if it but look upon itself; and she who ventures to esteem it hers proves by that single thought she has it not. Humility - Fry
