Re: La-La Land to release 15-disc original series score set

I'm not hearing any hiss. The only tracks that don't sound perfect are The Doomsday Machine. And there's a good reason for that, I'm told.

Well, I'm about to start Disc 15. It's been a heck of a ride. Now I'm going to have to go back and try to remember what I liked most.

I've been thinking about "tracking". The two that spring to mind that I might want "full" scores for are Balance of Terror and The Ultimate Computer.

I have not been as bowled over by season 3 as I was expecting. Enterprise Incident is good. Too much George Duning is too much. I adored Metamorphosis and like Return to tomorrow. But yikes, it's a lot!

Tagging: I'm debating putting the episode title into the track name. I've decided against breaking them into albums per episode. (Well, I though I had. It's suddenly sounding like an ok idea again...) Sometimes it's hard to figure out the episode just by looking at iTunes or my iPod.

Re: La-La Land to release 15-disc original series score set

I got mine yesterday - ::happy dance::

This set is brilliant! I am blown away by the quality.

Kudos to those that have completed listening to all 15 CDs. It's just soooo much to absorb, I have no idea where to start! I've just listened to a few Season 1 tracks (The Cage and City on the Edge...), plus a few alternate takes.

Re: La-La Land to release 15-disc original series score set

What had been the most revelatory to me are the 2nd season cues I thought were composed for specific episode but were in fact library cues by Alexander Courage. The "Fight On Captain Theme" was, I always thought, composed for Mirror, Mirror. The opening credit cue in Catspaw was another one. Mainly because they don't sound at all like Courage's work to me. Also some cues by Mullendore I thought were Steiner, and so on. Amazing what I'm learning. It's just odd to have the score to Mirror, Mirror without the fight music in there. I guess having certain cues left off the rerecordings were good clues.

The sound is fricking amazing! I have no issues with The Doomsday Machine, it's just great to finally have that complete. All of this music! It's also funny how come cues come on and I don't think of the original episode it was written for; instead I think of the scene I associate with it in a later episode. The tracking on Trek was always good, and when we get Apollo's giant theme, I don't think of that episode, I think of seeing the rocket in Assignment Earth.

Love, love, LOVE this!

Blame Gracenote for not updating. All of the titles were submitted over a week ago, before the set was even on sale. If you have a Mac, get this: http://dougscripts.com/itunes/script...cdtexttocdinfo The discs are CD-Text encoded and that will get the info off of them.

If not, copy and paste will be your friend.

If you have Windows use Exact Audio Copy and use the CD-Text that way.

Re: La-La Land to release 15-disc original series score set

On the tape hiss issue: Different people have different abilities to hear very high-frequency sounds, especially since that ability tends to decline with age (presbycusis, as I mentioned earlier). So not everyone would be able to hear something as high as tape hiss. I'm actually a little surprised I don't seem to be losing any of my high-frequency hearing yet.

And the tape hiss only seems to be on the pilots and "The Man Trap." I didn't notice any on "The Naked Time." Also I'm not sure how much of it was hiss. There seemed to be some sort of ambient sounds from the recording studio or something as well.

There is always a small amount of tape hiss. It is inherent in the recording medium, and I've heard it faintly to varying degrees on all tracks.

I fully expected it, and am pleasantly happy with how little of it there actually is.

I did that too. Some music cues I remember from being used in other episodes different than the ones they originally were for.

22 Stars,

The track listing is included in the booklets for each season, and summarized on the back of each clamshell.

In addition, the track listing is embedded on the CDs in CD-TEXT.

There are free plugins for iTunes and Windows Media Player that will read the CD-TEXT information.

If you mean which cues were tracked into each episode, that is not documented in the set, but not too difficult to figure out by watching the episodes and identifying each tracked cue, though this would be time-consuming.
