Mixing/Mastering/Recording on Yuki Kajiura releases.

grunty

I have reached Yuki nirvana
Just a thread for our little amateur discussions. Or another thread to be forgotten. Edit: I just noticed there was a mixing thread in 2010. Well, poop. 2late and merging would probably bump the credits from the opening posts. :p

A short preface: Is "mixing" even an important thing and worth talking about?
Absolutely. I think the go to example here should be "key of the twilight" on .hack//SIGN OST1 and FICTION, which as far as we know is the same exact recording mixed by different people. Check them out.

Below is a compiled list of credits for Yuki Kajiura CDs. I typed most of those credits out myself so there could be mistakes. (Most of it wasn't on VGMDB or discogs at the time.)

As you can see ever since MADLAX (and with the exception of Tsubasa) Takashi Koiwa has been the sole mixing engineer on all YK anime soundtracks.

Continuing from page 29 of Heaven's Feel thread

@grunty Could it be they have more time or a higher budget for standalone releases, and the CDs that come with the movies are rushed jobs? I don't really know about mixing, so it;s just a guess, hue.

I've no bloody clue either, lol.

The enclosed CDs are likely rush jobs (just quick converts from the 48kHz movie audio; prone to mess ups/lack of care like that SAO OST2 blunder) but that still doesn't change the fact how it's actually mixed. The flower will bloom in the stereo mix of the movie still sounds like ass, only less compressed; but that could be a 0care downmix from the multichannel version too, who knows. v( '')v

Maybe that is actually the problem (with presage flower OST), that the tracks are downmixes from 5.1 audio rather than original mixes made with stereo in mind. v( '')v

Having said that, on the original Kara no Kyoukai movies I'm somewhat sure the 5.1 and stereo mixes were different - I could not figure out how to get the stereo mix from 5.1. The Epilogue on the other hand used a rather non-standard matrix for the downmix (if I remember correctly F 0; C -6.5dB; R -6dB) and different keying(?) during dialogue.
I did not look into that in HF#1.

Just speculah and rambling of a random dude on the interwebs.

Edit:
Let's forget presage flower and the 5.1 downmixing idea for now and let's look again at Fate/Zero but compare with Princess Principal.

evacuation from Fate/Zero and have to get over from PriPri to be exact. Have to say Fate/Zero wins again for me.

Heh, it will probably be a dead thread indeed. :)

I guess the most current question is: Why does Heaven's Feel OST sound Pretty Bad(TM)? ;)

PS. @Kugayama would the EAT-MAN Sound Art Book happen to have credits for the CD?

(Almost) none of us are experts here. We're just having fun picking shit apart. v( '')v

Like finding similar tracks (like the 2 zero/pripri tracks I mentioned above) and pondering which sounds better/fuller/stuffier(lulz if that's even a word) to us doesn't require diplomas.

Can't add much to the thread, but I relistened to presage flower's ost and noticed that yuriko's part in she is the saber is noticeably more clear and easy to hear than any other vocals on the cd barring for the butterfly.

Why they need 3 recording studios and 1 mixing studio for a single song ? lol

Hmmm, listening to Destination from YUUKA and wondering if the difference in how the single tracks sound (between the album and their original single releases) is only because of different mastering/EQ or mixing too. Wish I knew more.
 

Westkana

HA! I live in her CLOSET!
I would bet they did some re-mixing or re-mastering for the album re-release, either to make the song sound better and/or to have how everything is mixed be a bit more homogeneous between songs within the same album. I definitely noticed some difference between One Light in the single vs. FOTW release- for instance, the hi hat is panned slightly more towards the center (and therefore slightly louder) during the verse in the album version.
 

grunty

I have reached Yuki nirvana
I don't have access to my Kalafina ATM but I also ~remember~ that in either One Light (or ring your bell) the first verse (or chorus, lol getting old) was at a different volume on the album than the single. Everything else would cancel out when I overlapped the two versions. I'll check it again some time.

Anyways, going back to Destination it feels like quite the difference. (Comparing to other stuff I have with me right now) on Dream Field and circus and their respective singles for example the difference in sound is not that big (so it feels more like only different mastering/EQ).
At the same time the Destination tracks don't sound like the extreme case of key of the twilight remix on FICTION vs SIGN OST1 either. Eh. Maybe Destination tracks did get a new mix but maybe it's not as extreme because it's just an updated one by the same person rather than a completely new person responsible for it.

I appreciate this thread because I'm what they call an audiophile, that is, a lover of sound (comes from Latin hehee). I've a pretty decent stereo system and some acoustic treatment costing in the tens of thousands of euros.

The YK OST albums that I have are for the most part amazingly well-produced. In particular, the sound is dynamic, vibrant, and the soundstage is wide. That's one additional bonus to her music to me personally because as a listener I'm fairly hard to please but YK's albums have never disappointed and some of them leave absolutely nothing to be desired to my ears.

I recommend the FJ Live CD's - e.g. https://canta-per-me.net/discography/yk-vol15-ost-special-live-cd https://canta-per-me.net/discography/fj-yuki-live-best/ and https://canta-per-me.net/discography/fj-yuki-live-best-2/ (plus https://canta-per-me.net/discography/princess-principal-live-cd ).

The vol.#15 special live at Maihama Amphitheater was magical.

I've one Yuki Kajiura + Kalafina live CD (2008—2010). For a live, it's pretty well executed, but if memory serves, on some tracks they've amplified some singing voices for some reason, even midtrack. Usually, I think this is done because the engineer thinks the singing isn't loud enough in the overall mix. Unfortunately, in a better listening environment, this solution backfires because the result sounds more artificial and even shrill than it normally would.

I can't remember the details as it's been a while since I listened to the album. And I didn't register this previously when my system and environment was weaker. Back then, I used to love the album in terms of sound quality as well. But on my current system and room, this live disc is beaten by several studio albums in sound quality.

I like Yuki
It's a matter of taste, but what I would like to see is an arranged version of the Xenosaga 3 OST, which seems to be a great OST. I've not yet listened to it on my system, but frankly, if there are any sound quality limitations based on the hardware, it often discourages me from listening and enjoying the music. I do have some video game OSTs in their original format, but I've found that I much prefer arranged versions, especially on older hardware (such as the PS2).

Falcom (Sound Team jdk) does an excellent job with their approach in my view. They offer the studio master quality versions of their game OSTs for download (it means audio quality is not compromised by hardware but is as pristine as it gets), and they also have several arranged albums of their game OSTs. Actually, my number one video game OST at the moment is a "super arranged" version of the Legend of Heroes franchise Crossbell arc by Falcom.
