From Sound pioneer Ray Dolby of Dolby Laboratories dies at 80:
His name is prominent on both theater and home sound systems. RIP, Mr. Dolby
I still have about a hundred cassette recordings I made in the 70s and 80s of live performances by the NY, Boston, Philadelphia and Cleveland Orchestras, broadcast in Dolby FM by WQXR in New York. QXR used to periodically broadcast a Dolby digital test tone which allowed me to properly set my recording levels. I'd record with Dolby "off", because the source was already encoded, and play back with Dolby on, with virtually no cassette tape hiss. Great stuff, back in the day.
RIP Ray Dolby.
And on a lighthearted note:
Jeanine: You know, it might have been better if the, uh, album had
been mixed right.
David: Well I suppose you could cry about that, of course it's
true. I mean it's true.
Jeanine: It wasn't...it was mixed all wrong, wasn't it?
Nigel: It was mixed wrong?
Nigel: Were you there?
Jeanine: ...you couldn't hear the...
Nigel: How do you know it was mixed wrong?
David: But she's...she's heard the...she's heard the record.
Jeanine: No, but I've heard the album.
Nigel: So you're judgement is it was mixed wrong.
Jeanine: You couldn't hear the lyrics on all of it.
David: You don't agree that you can't hear the vocals?
Nigel: No, I don't. I do not agree. No.
David: Well I think maybe....
Nigel: It's interesting that she's bringing it up.
David: Well she'd like to hear the vocals.
Nigel: I mean it's like it's me saying, you know, you're using
the wrong conditioner for your hair. It looks sort of...
David: Don't be stupid.
Jeanine: You don't, you don't do heavy metal in dobly, you know,
Nigel: In what??? In what???
Jeanine: In dobly...
Nigel: In doubly!?! What's that?
David: She means Dolby, alright? She means Dolby, you know?
You know perfectly well what she means.
Nigel: ...ha ha...
When the guy who invented Sensurround dies, we'll all cheer!
We Home Theater enthusiasts owe you Ray......R.I.P.
Very nice to see it on the news page.
Yes it is. When I started this thread I wasn't sure where to put it since so many of my generation are dying every week. I wasn't sure who is "news" for us here at DBSTalk.
I distinctly remember when the "hiss" went silent.
Rest in Peace, Ray.
