m hearing on pi radio nothingman remastered, just before that was why go remixed. I cant tell a difference from the original versions. What's the difference? Does one need to have a trained ear to tell?

    Not to sound snobby, but if you don't hear it now, you probably never will. The Remixed stuff is way easier to hear differences than the remastered stuff though.

    If you want to try and hear the differences, get one of the remixed versions and start it and then shortly after pause it and then start the regular version. I wouldn't nesecarily call it needing a trained ear,you just need to listen closely.

    Remixed means they go back and could change the levels on each individual instrument, include things that were cut from the original recording, etc...

    Remasterd just means they take the original mix (so not changing the levels on each individual instrument, adding things, etc...) and then remastering it. So they might be able to boost the bass over all, but not the bass drum or bass guitar individually.

    Remixed are generally more noticeable than a remastered.

    Plus it would be hard to hear the differences on a radio.

    If you want to hear a good remixed album, check out NIN's first album. If you have both copies and listen to them on the same stereo, you'll hear the difference.
