Nason P. Schooler - Singles


  1. Where The Angels Fly (Stereo)



Explanation of Audio File Formats:


NOTE: if you want the definitive "as the artist intended" experience, listen to the 7.1 mix played back on a properly calibrated 7.1 surround system (ideally with identical speakers for all 7 channels).

Definitions:

Stereo - Plain old stereo mix done the old fashioned way.

3D - HRTF surround encoded stereo for loudspeakers. These are optimized for playback over stereo speakers. They sound best if you sit in the sweet spot - imagine an equilateral triangle where each speaker is at a corner and you are at the third corner.

Binaural - Binaural HRTF encoding for headphones yields the best virtual surround when listening through headphones, earbuds, etc.

Quad - Quad mix encoded as 5.1 (for compatability - most devices and apps do not properly play a straight-up 4.0 Quad file)

5.1 and 7.1 - Full multichannel surround files. To play these I just put them on a USB drive and play them on my Blu-Ray player (a $50 Sony unit with a USB port on front) which is hooked up to my receiver via HDMI. Mine can't handle 7.1 FLAC, so I have to convert it to 7.1 Wave first.

Flipped - 7.1 channel version, back swapped with sides. My player is non-compliant with the official WAVE file spec and places channels 7 and 8 in the back instead of the sides. If yours does this as well, then this flipped version is for you. If the main guitars in "100 Degrees" and "Sunday Glory" are in the back speakers, you've got the right version for your player.

(All files are FLAC format lossless audio)
