ATMP MONO Fold Down?
« on: July 26, 2008, 02:31:27 AM »

I read on a previous thread about their being a Mono Fold Down for All Things Must Pass? Any chance someone would like to share if they have a copy? Or any other Mono Fold Down's either. I have finally acquired the Abbey Road Fold Down.

I've never found such a thing myself, although apparently it does exist:

You could make a good mono fold down yourself from the Toshiba Red Vinyl which might actually be better than the real thing depending on what sort of quality the Brazilian original had: it's not quite authentic, of course, but the results would be very similar apart from whatever equalization was applied to the mono master.  :)

Took your advice on the fold down, and I like it. There is much more flanging present when you put it into mono, its hard to notice in stereo.

Glad it worked out. The usual objection to mono fold downs, of course, is that anything panned to the far left or right of the stereo mix will tend to disappear down into the mono while elements in the center of the stereo original will come too far forward. Although I doubt this would be much of a problem with ATMP, you still might get odd results from collapsing stereo to mono: a fold down is no substitute for a real mono mix.

For what it's worth, my own inclination is to go in precisely the opposite direction, at least- or especially- for ATMP: 5.1 DTS.
