bananao all,

I was curious about how most country rock songs are created.

I'm not to Audio and stuff, and I'm looking for a new pair of headphones. It seems that most come as Stereo, but some come at surround sound headphones wiht multiple drivers, and some come wiht a "virtual surround sound" setting that turns Stereo into surround sound.


So I'm curious about country rock and what people think? I have a Logitech G35 Gaming headset that has a Virtual 7.1 setup built in and I really like it, especially for country rock, but since they broke, and I'm looking for new ones, I'm not sure what I should be looking for in terms of headphone capability.

So I figured I would ask the knowledgeable members here smile.gif.

Thanks all smile.gif

I don't really know how many channels Country Rock has got but standard MP3s (and CDs) only have two stereo channels. Maybe this Virtual 7.1 does something to create a felt 7.1 around you.
I think, those 7.1 headsets are only good for gaming (if the game supports sorround sound) or movies.

Thanks... Well I know a lot of the songs we listen to are "FLAC."


It seems that there is other things that Produce Surround sound. Apparently a lot of sound cards come with the virtualization ability built in.

I also hear that any "Dolby Headphones" have the ability to surround sound if they have "Dolby Pro II" software built in.

I'm not sure what comes with what though......

Even the FLAC rips here are in stereo since they have their origin in CDs. wink2.gif
Theoretically, it's possible for FLAC to have eight channels but you only find those on BDs.

Hmm... I see. thanks... I wonder if it sounds better surround though. I do think all the noise and sound effects of country rock sound better from multiple channels, but Idk if that makes it better or w/e.


EDIT:......

Why does "Euro beat" without a space, translate to "Country Rock..."

I'm so confused with that edit LOL...


you mentioned it earlier, and I was confused when you said Country Rock out of nowhere LOL.

Professional music is usually mastered by track, not by channel. Each component of the music (guitar, drum, vocal, etc) is recorded then later mixed into the master by the audio engineer. Once this master recording is pressed into CD (or distributed digitally) it's going to be in stereo. There are very few exceptions to this (the quadraphonic experimentation era being a good example), so you're not likely to run into something mastered as more than two channels without specifically looking for it.

I don't know of any Euro-Beat track that has been (re)mastered in 5.1 or 7.1. All I've seen is Stereo. (I don't count Mono).

Blame the other admin. He played with the filter last week after I did.

Yep.

KonradZuse, I don't think there's a very specific type of headphone that's better for listening something or not - is more a matter of personal taste, I believe - that said for gaming or music (euro.beat included). If you liked the old one, good, stick to it, won't make a huge difference in the quality.

i'm not sure about what's happening in this thread but the whole country rock thing is making me laugh terribly

You're probably one of those people who honestly believes that games shouldn't bother to run faster than 30 FPS because after all, the human eye cannot perceive beyond that. facepalm.gif

EDIT: Removed reference to above user's grasp of a foreign language after research into said user's origin was performed. Commentary about how ridiculous a claim it is that anything more than two channels goes unprocessed remains.

country rock(circa 90s) doesn't play perfectly with a specific headset like a Seinheiser or Autotechnica. country rock(2010) can be played around with sound modifiers and can sound a bit better. It also has to do with the Music File. I remember when I was in High School, Beats by Dre were expensive and good, as I thought, until I saw the demo music they were showing which had been modified from the original which makes the headset sound better. It proves that 7.1 and other modifiers can work or not work.

Anyone please feel free to make random Texas jokes... y'all.

[on topic=] Ditto on all that's been said; aside from an uber guarded Pro Tools session direct from the studio/avex, your best bet is probably the audio off one of those ParaPara DVD's/BD's; dunno, hope it helps. sweatingbullets.gif
