There were at least 2 threads about remastered smash and ignition. The difference is that remastered albums are louder, which is pretty noticable.

I just put on remastred Dirty Magic without thinking about it I heard that something wasn't as it used to be. Then I realised that it was the remasterd. So you can feel a difference.

Here is my old thread with sound tracks: http://www.offspring.com/forums/showthread.php?t=33326&highlight=comparing

Ignition sounds better, but smash just sounds louder.

The sound is clearer and less old sounding on both.

went out and bought the remastered smash today, gotta say I'm dissapointed to be honest...
the album sounds a fair bit clearer, lows are much more solid,
but they've really gone over the top with the limiting (making it louder) particularly noticeable on the chorus of genocide, just way too much distortion for my liking, if I want it louder I'll reach for the volume control thanks,
unsure whether its worth going out for remastered ignition, but then some folks are saying its not as loud as smash, so might be worth a punt...

they cut out the stupid part from the beginning of what happened to you I think as well

The remastered albums are louder this is the main difference, the quality isn't changed a lot! :)

The inaudible sentence followed by a single guitar note? Well I'm glad they took that out. It makes the old one more unique.

Overall though, the best part about the remastered cds is being able to blast them at loud volumes. Before, you could hear the quality start to sound like shit the louder you got. Now, you can just blast them and they still sound great.

I also think this latest improvement makes it official that I like Smash better than Dookie, whereas before I thought of it as a tie.

Now the next generation of Offspring fans will be buying the new updated classic Smash, and possibly Ignition too!

:confused: You don't have any experience of downloading from megaupload? First of all you should enter the random 3-letter code to the left side of an orange "Download" button, then press that button, you should be redirected to a page where you'll have to wait some time (like 45 seconds), you can see a countdown there, after the time has passed there should appear a button which starts download. Just try it, if you didn't figure out yet.

Or was it just a joke ? :p

No joke. I think it was cause the code was in a goofy font that I wouldn't expect important information to be in. And cause I'm blind. Thanks.

Ah. Now I can't get iTunes or Windows Media Player to open it. WMP says it's not the right file type or something like that. Do I need some sort of software to properly open it or something?

You know you'd need to listen to BOTH in lossless to really tell the difference

I don't have any problems opening those mp3's with Windows Media Player (v. 9.0). But I usually use winamp (http://www.winamp.com/) player to listen music. Just tried Media Player Classic, it worked aswell. I'm not sure if mp3's use any codecs, but I really doubt that you need them.

Thank you very much for the patience. I appreciate it. <3 :)

I have the whole offspring discography. Albums, DVDs and GH. But I don't plan to buy remastered albums.

I can't get that download to work. First of all, I've tried the "Save to a disk" option as well as the "Open with" option for the initial download. Neither have worked properly. Once I actually have it downloaded though, I can't open it with iTunes or WMP (version 11). iTunes opens up when I click the downloaded file, but it won't actually play or upload the songs. WMP says it can't play them and it might be because of the file type or codec. Any suggestions?

Ehm.. I assume you have unpacked .rar archive before you started to put those audio files in WMP. Can't help with iTunes because I never used them.

Give me a website where I could upload those, I'll do that, also will include a winamp player setup which I use.

Maybe someone might upload the remastered albums on http://offspring.ipshit.com/index.php?dir= ?

Hehe, I was curious, maybe you were trying to put the whole Ignition and Smash Remastered.rar file into your player without opening it and extracting 2 folders (Ignition and Smash) before trying to play them.

I'll download the remastered versions, and see what's different.

Here they aren't for sale. Not even the original Ignition is for sale :S

I had the same problem when I downloaded them in june. They only worked in Winamp. I had to reconvert them through Goldwave and save them one by one once again. Then they worked pretty well.

I appreciate the effort but I'm just gonna have to wait to hear em. If I can't get these files to work in WMP or iTunes then I'm not good enough with computers to figure it out.

I have uploaded my own rips in the link I posted and it was closer to august.
bighead, download winamp http://www.winamp.com/player and try it. I am pretty sure that it will work.

Ok I'm trying it. I really just want to put them on my iPod or burn them to a cd. Will this program allow me to do that?

I have no problem playing it with WMP 10. Install Codec Pack All In 1.

I guess they had to be remastered. Otherwise the volume difference between them and the rest of the songs would be very noticeable.
