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.

Another new album by Jean Michel Jarre

Begs for ONE MORE though, doesn't it? ;)
99 is the maximum nuber of tracks according to the red book standard.

I ordered it at Plato and it only took a few days. But be quick; I think the release is getting rare.

If you for some reason can't or don't want to buy but still listen to it the whole thing is on YouTube. :wink:

This disc seems to contain a mastering designed for radio broadcasting.

There is a cut at 15 khz (like with an mp3 @96 kbps), ie Hexagone 14 :

Someone suggests this mastering could come from Netia software used by Franceinfo FM radio to broadcast in "mp2 @256 kbps". :idea: (http://forums.lenodal.com/viewtopic.php ... 04#p504504)

Yes. (It may sound strange for a "CD-DA" but I think it was done intentionally.... I have none of the previous "Radiophonie" to compare. :| )

That's quite a shame that the whole thing is of lower quality. Might be worth a shot to send an email to see if it was deliberate or that something went wrong.

I understand from this discussion that apparently even despite 99 tracks the CD does not include everything? There are supposedly "more orchestral" versions used by franceinfo?

I read somewhere that Hexagone was composed in 10 days, and JMJ provided about 230 tracks to "franceinfo:". (Due to Red Book limitation we can have 99 tracks on a CD-DA.)

It seems that some are a little bit more orchestral and not on the CD.

They should've released it as a digital download and that would solve that problem...

Could've also just make it a three disc edition. Would've been pretty cool having all the tracks instead of this. But still.
