Welcome to the new BlahBlahCafe!

Currently, we are experiencing some DNS problems. We hope to fix this as soon as possible.

We have migrated to a new server. As with every migration, some things might have been lost in translation (at least, that's my experience in software development). The main problem is logging in into the boards. These could be caused by several reasons:

- Your browser cache & cookies need to be cleared because we moved to a new server. If you get the error message whilst logging: "The submitted form was invalid. Try submitting again.", you need to clear your cache & cookies. You can find a "Delete cookies" option at the bottom of this page.

- There is also a chance that your password is not correctly converted to the new system. This is a known bug with migrating the system. The only solution is to request a new password, there's a link on the form that will send an email to you to create a new password. If that fails, I can set a password for you, you can contact us at the "Contact us" link at the bottom of the page.

Re: Unedited Waiting for Cousteau

Here's what the wikipedia page of the album says: Jarre utilised the unedited version as an ambient audience "warm-up" in the hours prior to the Paris la Defense concert in 1990 (and also in many concerts after this "first"), played on the specially installed public address soun...

As I said before:
I downsized the files with ffmpeg and created a DVD:
ffmpeg -i <filename.mp4> -target pal-dvd -aspect 16:9 -acodec ac3 <filename.mpg>

Then I audit a DVD with a menu and all, and voila, a nice 5.1 DVD
Ups, must have overlooked this - sorry and thanks!!

Hi everyone, please could someone explain, how to burn the 5.1 mp4 files to DVD or BluRay, so I can play the disc (like the AERO one, which works fine) in my Onkyo 5.1 system? Hints on the burning program and some quick notes on the settings and whether DVD or BluRay would be great! Thanks in advanc...

I would love to go, but it's not affordable... :(

Hopefully there will be some other big event somewhere in central Europe.

For all those who are going to attend - have a lot of fun. Would be great to see some professional recording published on BluRay this time...

The Intro of Oxygene 17 reminds me a little bit of ATBs Ecstasy from 2004 (Album: No Silence)

The announcement of an Oxygene sequel was quite surprising to me, because there weren't any hints in advance compared to previous releases of what ever album. No tiny pieces of information leading to something concrete within weeks or month, just 'BAMMM' - here is Oxygene 3 (ok a release date so far...

This is great - the 'limited' and 'already sold out' part 2 of the box for 54,95 € (incl. shipping to Germany), while I had to pay 64,95 €.

Anyway - good for the people where MyPlayDirect screwed up and part 2 was not delivered.

A couple of weeks ago I reviewed my Jarre CD's to check whether I have every official release of albums in my collection. I was checking Wikipedia and to my surprise I found out, that there are different versions for CiC (and Revolutions, but that's a another topic) and that I only had the short ver...

Something different: What is so important / interesting on the DR values. I'm not very familiar with those kind of things, but understood it is 'dynamic range'. But what does it actually tell someone / whats the benefit? Does it work for wav files only? No it works on pretty much all audio files. B...

I'm honestly considering just doing a charge back on the thing after rethinking the whole thing. The information about the USB stick is a flat out lie, we had to wait a months before we actually get the album because we got corrupted files the day of release (and sixteen hours to late to boot) and ...

On the back of the lid, there's a certificate with a signature of JMJ and a number. Just to make sure - you are talking about the back of the lid of the first box, shipped last year? Please don't tell me, you received the content of the second part in an extra box with lid... :| Something different...

MyPlayDirect - History of a nightmare

Suggestion: All MyPlayDirect Experiences in this thread to keep the Electronica's threads 'clean' - if this is not wanted, just let me know... The MyPlayDirect nightmare continuous (at least for me)... While I was happy to receive a shipping notification email for the deluxe box part two after my ba...

Just digging out some old posts :D On 22nd of November 2015 Karl Bartos played in 'Haus Leipzig' and I had the chance to join the concert. He played stuff from all his own records with focus on 'Off the Records' but also a Kraftwerk block, which was quite impressive. While you get a perfect and unpe...
