Alan Parsons and Stephen Court - Sound Check Vol. 2 CDDA screenshot
Sound Check Productions | 1996 | 99 tracks | 509 MB
SOUND CHECK 2 is the definitive audio test disc. Created in association with renowned record producer, engineer and musician Alan Parsons, it is available as a single CD or in a double CD case with built-in microphone and sound level meter, calibrated from -15dB to +12dB. When used in conjunction with its third octave tracks, SOUND CHECK 2 forms an instant system response analyser.

It contains 99 tracks of practical material compiled as a result of careful research and investigation into the needs of studio engineers, audio technicians, serious audiophiles, record producers and musicians. The disc has been designed not only to help assess the technical performance of a wide range of sound recording and reproduction equipment, but also to offer the very best available musical, vocal and effects sources for experimentation and demonstration.

The levels indicated on SOUND CHECK 2 refer to 0dB FS (Full Scale), the theoretical maximum level obtainable on digital recordings. Analogue equipment can be calibrated to read 0VU at the sine wave reference tone on this disc which is recorded at –14dB FS. Digital meters should indicate this level. There are no rigid standards regarding digital/analogue operating levels, however you can easily choose a higher or lower operating level. For example, if analogue VU meters are lined up to +2VU, then 0VU will represent –16dB FS.

By selecting individual tracks on your CD player while the disc is running, the announcements preceding test signals can be eliminated. This is especially useful for extended play of one track, when used in conjunction with the Store and Repeat or Continuous Play functions found on most CD players.

Don't suppose there's a different way to get this one, huh? The .cue file isn't loading, and should the other file be a .wav file (what it is currently) or a .bin file (which is what I would have thought it would be)? The best I can do is get it to open as one looooooooong audio file.

I'm sorry for the inconvenience Iggy.

1° For the loading :

If I understand that correctly, you might have extracted the content to a folder, from there extracted the second content inside a second folder, etc., sort of " Russian puppets " that I used to protect the content of the post. I do the same too ... but here ...
But... At the end, also, the cue and wav file names are long too. I wanted to keep everything original / untouched.

I just tested extracting it all in the root of a drive, with the final big wav too at the root with the cue. Then it extracts properly.

2° To get the individual files :

We can then use Exact Audio Copy :

EAC => Tools => " Split WAV by cue SHEET " => " With Gaps " .

Done.

3° To shorten the names :

In any case it also possible to rename the cue to just " Alan Parsons ", changing the call of the wav to the same name of course. Which gives for the debut of the cue - opened with the notepad - :
REM DISCID 2F111863
REM COMMENT "ExactAudioCopy v0.99pb5"
PERFORMER "Pro"
TITLE "Alan Parsons"
FILE "Alan Parsons.wav" WAVE
TRACK 01 AUDIO
TITLE "Track01"
PERFORMER "Pro"
INDEX 01 00:00:00
TRACK 02 AUDIO
TITLE "Track02"
PERFORMER "Pro"

( etc... )


Please write back if this helps.

Thanks for getting back to me, DAW! I appreciate you taking the time to send a detailed response!

I'm on a Mac. The .rar extracted to one folder -- "Alan.Parsons.and.Stephen.Court.Sound.Check.2.CDDA". There were no sub-folders. Inside this one folder were the following files:

"alan parsons.jpg"
"English.pdf"
"Front.jpg"
"parson.jpg"
"Pro - Alan Parsons - Sound Check 2 Audio Test and Demonstration CD 2003.cue"
"Pro - Alan Parsons - Sound Check 2 Audio Test and Demonstration CD 2003.jpg"
"Pro - Alan Parsons - Sound Check 2 Audio Test and Demonstration CD 2003.wav"
"SOUND CHECK 2.txt"


I tried dragging the .cue and .wav files to Toast, where I can usually mount .bin and .cue files as a disk image (either in straight disk image mode or sometimes as an audio CD). Toast claims it can't read the .cue file, and the best I can do is mount the whole thing as one long audio file in an audio CD.

I'll try editing the .cue in Text Edit on the Mac per your suggestion and let you know what happens!

(Edit: before I did any of that, I looked around to see if I had or if I could get something similar to Exact Audio Copy for the Mac. As it turns out, I've already had a tiny app on my machine for years -- in fact, I had forgotten what it was -- called "XLD" [X Lossless Decoder] that is exactly like Exact Audio Copy. I was able to simply open the .cue file in XLD without any editing whatsoever, and it immediately split up the tracks properly. I renamed the individual tracks to my liking, then extracted the lot as .wav files. It seems like there was absolutely nothing wrong with your files; I was just using the wrong extraction software. Thanks again for your help and for posting this in the first place!)

Hello again Iggy.

It makes me happy to read and understand that you found a solution and can use those samples in their individual parts now.

I'm sorry but I reasoned as if you were on PC. My bad. But the second good news will now be : your method will help any user also on Mac . Thank too for your detailed explanations.

So " happy tuning " and all the best !

Everytime I see a post like this, my inner hoarder wakes up and takes control of me. My hard drive can't take this anymore!

Very cool up, DAW. This is exactly (no pun intended,) what I need right now. I wasn't aware of this test disc, as nearly all of my search queries for something like this rewarded me with a hoard of links to companies that mix or master your music for you.
So, much appreciated--and thanks for the Zippy links.

You're welcome eXACT, thank you .

I should have mentioned that Vol.1 is on AZ too, just recently re-uploaded by PiRAT =>

Alan Parsons and Stephen Court - Sound Check CDDA

Also that, due to the recorded content : beware at which volume you ( eventuallly have to ) listen to specific tracks sent into your preferred DAW ( just after myself of course ), on speakers or headphones to not damage them and your ears too.

The two volumes seem to have almost the same content, although this one appears to have a few additional tracks. and is about six or seven years later, so it may have been remastered or re-recorded. I haven't compared the two side-by-side, but I'm guessing this is probably the volume to get.

At a glance, they do appear to have the same content, more or less.

I asked " around " : the present CD was released in 1996, and Vol. 1 in 1993. ( So I edited the date in my initial description here. )
1996 is confirmed by the Nimbus A6384 glassmaster reference ( Nimbus Records, UK in fact ).

The content is different, going with the fact that initially the 2 CDs should have been released together.
