Welcome to the new BlahBlahCafe!

A new server, a new environment. Updated and all.

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.

No, I don't think that's the cause. The quality of software engineering has been dropping for the past decade or so. Everything is rushed now (aka "agile") and nobody pays attention to QA.

Re: Welcome To The Other Side - Jean-Michel Jarre New Year Eve’s concert at Notre-Dame in VR

Having seen a couple of VR recordings of the concert I must sadly conclude that the concert must have suffered from audio/video sync issues. In the YouTube broadcast the countdown reached 0 exactly at the first beat of Stardust chorus, however on VR the video was delayed by ≈3 seconds (kind of ruini...

I know, my point is that Qobuz offers both 44/16 and 48/24 and the first one is sufficient. As I said - it's not about the money, it's about storage space.

Re: Welcome To The Other Side

Qobuz has downloadable hi-res audio: https://www.qobuz.com/nl-nl/album/welcome-to-the-other-side-concert-from-virtual-notre-dame-jean-michel-jarre/uvqta1lekacea Although let's not kid ourselves - in case of this release (and pretty much all JMJ releases) 44/16 is good enough. 48/24 is just a waste ...

24-Bit 48.0 kHz flac.
Yeah I'm not talking about the file format, I'm talking about the actual content :>

Re: Welcome To The Other Side - Jean-Michel Jarre New Year Eve’s concert at Notre-Dame in VR

TBH I wonder why this needs to be live at all. They could've recorded his entire "performance" and just replay it. He doesn't need to interact with the audience so nobody will be able to tell anyway and at least there wouldn't be f***-ups like that Ableton metronome last time. Turns out I...

Re: Welcome To The Other Side - Jean-Michel Jarre New Year Eve’s concert at Notre-Dame in VR

By the way, have you noticed that this concert was pretty much (if not 100%) free of JMJ randomly triggering sound effects (like that dreaded "ah-ha" with syncopated echo)

VR recording. Seems better than the last endeavor, although there clearly is audio/video sync issue - clearly visible during the Stardust countdown.

Re: Welcome To The Other Side - Jean-Michel Jarre New Year Eve’s concert at Notre-Dame in VR

(Speaking of which, given the (virtual) location, RV2 would have been a very nice surprise track ;)) Would've preferred Chronologie 2. It would've been very easy to make it more EDMy. When I did my show in 2018 for a non-JMJ/non-electronica audience I went with Chrono 2, as it has a decent beat and...

Re: Welcome To The Other Side

So... while Concerts in China was largely recorded after the actual concerts... this one was recorded before :> Couldn't they have waited a day to create the illusion that it's the audio from the actual show? (I know there are people who are convinced it's possible to deliver the audio within second...

Re: Welcome To The Other Side

The album has the canned applause as well - I wouldn't be against it if it wasn't so poorly executed. It sounds like a sitcom :> I wonder whether the Time Machine sounds EXACTLY the same as the concert performance :> If so then it pretty much means that the laser harp performance was pre-recorded ea...

Re: Welcome To The Other Side

As I mentioned earlier when you Shazam the Oxygene 2 remix it turns up as "Jean-Michel Jarre - Oxygene 2 (JMJ rework of Kosinski remix)" from the album "Welcome to the other side". The album will be actually a small compilation album ("mixtape", as JMJ put it in the cha...

Re: Welcome To The Other Side - Jean-Michel Jarre New Year Eve’s concert at Notre-Dame in VR

The TV broadcast sounds interesting: combination of VR and live "real" footage. I hope this is true for the YouTube broadcast as well (he wasn't specific about it), because I've been saying that seeing him in person would humanize this performance a bit. He mentioned remixes of O2 and O4 ...
