    there has several Sigma flat transfers at guitars101 but not these one.
    I also would be very much interested, pariculary since the transfers obtained from the "Comrades" (which Markbot was referring to) sound so good. Any PM in this regard would be very much appreciated.

    Thank you, thank you very much for your generosity.

    I can offer UG Live Side, AHM and More and help to pass the flame. PM me with your email address and I'll send via WeTransfer.

    If anyone has The Wall please contact me.
    Have you heard the word is love?

    They do sound amazing.

    Question

    what's your "expertise" regarding the "More" flat transfer by SIGMA ?

    Did you try to compare the stereo with the Signature official CD of "More" ?
    I will try some OOPS on my favorite songs to hear how different the results are (especially for the not-really-true stereo "wilde" for the Nile Song- which makes it very hard to isolate something (but you can isolate some scream and words shoots by David Gilmour near the end ? (I wonder what he shouts? slangs ?)

    regarding the bonus tracks: same than the EARLY YEARS box set or they twick'ed these tracks a little bit ?

    14 Pink Floyd - Hollywood [Bonus Track].flac
    15 Pink Floyd - Seabirds [Bonus Track].flac (not the elusive, "arlésienne" song, of course, but the instrumental)
    16 Pink Floyd - More Blues (Alternate Mix) [Bonus Track].flac
    17 Pink Floyd - Theme (Beat Version) [Bonus Track].flac

    for instance I remember that Rick plays a kind of piano which is reminiscent of "Sympathy For The Devil" (the album Beggar's Banguet version) on "Ibiza Song"

    I'm curious to hear if we can have some different result with the SIGMA "flat transfer" : I will "play" a little bit with Audacity to see if this "reveals"/"enlighten" some new instruments or voice which can be isolated with the same filters

    Great idea. Unfortunately, I am not having much skills when it comes to audio engineering. Otherwise I would offer my help. Perhaps, this simple tool may be of help for your analysis: https://melody.ml/

    Just out of interest I was able to create a nice almost instrumental version of More using izoTope RX8 Music Rebalance. The result wasn't quite perfect but was well worth doing, revealing interesting similarities between Cirrus Minor and Roger's 'Body' compositions, amongst other things.

    Obviously this isn't related to whether the Sigma Flat Transfer differs from the official releases at all. I'd like to do the OOPS experiment mentioned above. I'm not sure I could detect any difference versus the Japanese Papersleeve edition which is my go-to remastered version.

    Sorry for my incompetence: But what does OOPS stand for?

    Out Of Phase Stereo.

    Don't worry about not knowing. I remembered that the OOP part was Out Of Phase, but I couldn't remember what the 'S' stood for, and had to search.

    This is probably a decent enough definition:

    This sounds intriguing. If anyone would like to share, I’d love to hear The Wall and AHM. Thanks.
