[Transition of Beatles recording technology and remastered sound source work] In the eight years since its debut in the UK in 1962 until its dissolution in 1970, the Beatles have released 13 original albums in their home country.
In the first half of the 1960s, stereo playback devices were generally in the process of becoming widespread, and records were mainly monaural. For Beatles, mixing work was basically monaural, and stereo was produced afterwards.
As a result, master tapes are made separately for monaural and stereo, which makes a difference in take and mix, and various sound sources exist as different versions.
At the time of Beatles debut, EMI Studio (Abby Road Studio) was a simple environment far from the present, and the recording equipment is basically 2 tracks.
In his debut album “Please Please Me”, vocals and performances are recorded in one shot like a studio live, and there is almost no overdub.
In the stereo mix from 2 tracks, it is a simple stereo mix where vocals and performances are divided into left and right, and this continues until the next album, at that time monaural was the mainstream and regardless of stereo, just I can tell you that it was just a formal production.
Since October 1963, the single “Hugging I Want” evolved from the previous stereo mix as the first recording of Beatles songs using a 4-track recorder.
Basically 4 tracks until Abbey Road Studios introduced an 8-track recorder in the middle of recording “The Beatles (White Album)” from the third album “A Hard Days Night”. It was a recording environment where overdub was repeated.
The multi-track recording album “Abby Road” was released only in stereo, but all previous albums have been released in two ways, monaural and stereo, and masters with different mixes have been produced. ..
Since the 1970s, stereo has become the mainstream, and monaural mixes have been forgotten as sounds of the past, but for the first time in 1987, all Beatles albums will be released on CD.
George Martin, who was asked to supervise, tries to eliminate the discomfort of the old-fashioned stereo. However, on the day of the CD release, a convincing remix and remaster was not in time, and the initial four albums were monaural, “Help! Only two titles, “Rubber Soul”, have been newly remixed, and after “Revolver”, the same stereo mix as in the record era was released as a CD.
In the 1990s, while unreleased sound sources other than the original albums such as “Anthology Tripartite” and “Live at the BBC” continued to be released, it was the first “Yellow Submarine Song Track” in 1999. A remix album that makes full use of multi-track is now available. Since then, remix albums such as “Let It Be … Naked” in 2003 and “LOVE” in 2006 will continue to be released.
In 2009, the CDs of all albums, which had been released halfway for many years since the first CD in 1987, will be fully reborn as the 2009 digital remastered version due to the improvement of digital mastering technology. .. Based on the original master sound source that is not a remix, minor corrections and improvements were made, and all 213 official songs were released in stereo and monaural. This is still a standard sound source.
On the other hand, in 2009, the game software was released as “The Beatles: Rock Band”. In contrast to the remastering of the original master sound source for games, a sound source in which vocals, guitar, bass, and drums are separated from the multi-track sound source by a mixer has appeared. The existence of many remix variations based on these is already familiar to Beatles collectors.
In recent years, the release of the latest remix remaster BOX for each album has become a hot topic from the remix commemorating the 50th anniversary of the release of “Sergeant Peppers” in 2017, and the Beatles sound source is currently evolving with the times.
[AI Audio Companion: Features of Remix and Remaster (Detailed Explanation)] As introduced in “Transition of Beatles Recording Technology and Remastered Sound Source Work” as the basic knowledge of Beatles Sound, there have been recurrences and remix album releases by the latest remasters, but this “AI” In the “Audio Companion: Remix and Remaster” series, the multi-track sound source attempted in “The Beatles: Rock Band” was further evolved, and vocals and guitars that were limited to selected songs at that time. , Bass, Drums parts separated sound source, all works are reconstructed for each original album with the latest version by the latest AI sound source analysis.
All songs are recorded for each album, which used to be a multi-track sound source that was only a part of the selected songs in “Rock Band”. Based on the original multi-track sound source in which each part of vocal, guitar, bass and drums is separated, it is finished in a new remix that is different from the original stereo mix.
[MULTI TRACK REMIX AND REMASTERS STEREO REMIX] is a new stereo mix that has undergone a major change from the original unnatural stereo sound image of the 1960s to a remix that is conscious of modern stereo localization without a sense of unnaturalness.
In particular, the difference in stereo mix from the early to mid-term can be clearly seen by listening directly with headphones or stereo earphones.
In the stereo from 2 tracks in the initial 2 albums, it has been reborn as a stereo mix that simply separates the monaural performance tracks that are grouped into one channel, converts the performance itself into stereo, and then localizes the vocals to the center. , This can be said to be an achievement unique to the latest AI sound source analysis. This attempt has already been released several times in recent years for sound source collectors, but if you dare to compare it, you can hear the difference in the texture of the sound, stereo localization, and sound image.
[NAKED VOCAL TRACK STEREO REMIX] is a mix that extracts the main vocal track and suppresses the performance as much as possible. It is a “naked” remix that extrudes a vivid vocal completely while leaving the performance. In a sense, it is a unique sound source because there is a multi-track sound source in which each part of vocals, guitar, bass, and drums is separated, and it is the first time that all songs of the album are recorded in this way.
[ORIGINAL ANALOG MASTER STEREO MIX] is literally a complete reproduction of the original sound source of the 1960s, and the source is the sound source of the mobile fidelity master record produced directly from the British original stereo master. Sound quality 96/24 Recorded based on a high-resolution digital sound source.
It is an original analog stereo mix of the original record master, which is not a sound source that has been restored by the current digital remaster.
It is a flat-transferred reference sound source that conveys the sound of the record master, which is now expensive and difficult to obtain.
Furthermore, [BACKING TRACKS INSTRUMENTAL STEREO REMIX], which can be said to be a karaoke of all songs in the album, is similar to “Naked Vocal”, and is a remix created uniquely because there is a multi-track sound source in which each part of vocal, guitar, bass, and drums is separated. It will be a sound source, and it can be said that this is also an achievement unique to the latest AI sound source analysis.
In the past, there were instrumental albums from the sound source of “The Beatles: Rock Band”, and there were backing tracks that only played, including studio outtakes, but all songs of the album are recorded in this way. It is the first appearance.
Some songs have vocals and choruses sorted out nicely, and some songs do not completely turn off vocal tracks, but by listening only to the performance, further analysis of Beatles Soundmaking It is an endless remix that is also useful.
