    There's an effect similar to this in the chorus of Jon Bellion's "Pre-Occupied:"

     
  2. Headphones can do the effect and get the background vocals to float out there. My headphones do it. The problem is that adjusting toe in and position of the headphones to maximize the effect gets to be rather difficult and not very practical unless you're the manufacturer designing the headphones and the ear pads.
     
  3. Thank you for the tip! This should be fun. Gunna have to find that Kinks album and Deep Forest.

    Sadly my 1999 Castle CD, a 20 track Best Of The Kinks has only two tracks in stereo, Victoria & Apeman. Is there a Stereo (or mostly stereo) comp out there?

    The 2014 Essential Kinks has the stereo version.

    If you've got a turntable, the 1972 vinyl comp "The Kink Kronikles" (not hard to find) has it. I just set up my speakers using Steve's technique and WOW! This forum is seriously the best

    Is this Reprise CD the stereo mix?

    The Kinks - Something Else By The Kinks

    I checked my entire collection and I don't have a single item (CD, vinyl, compilation, anything) that includes the stereo version of "Waterloo Sunset." I have at least a handful of the mono version, though ...

    So I want to make sure I'm ordering a CD that features the stereo mix.

    The Something Else stereo vinyl reissue does this. Just played on my new RP10 :)
     
  10. Just worked it with Essential Kinks CDs.

    Now I can sleep.


    Wow Victoria on this comp on my Oppo sounds Amazing.

    What brought this thread back? Great song, great way to fix your stereo up. Make sure your speakers are wired correctly in phase before you play or you'll get nothing..

    Thanks for the tip. I've just ordered the 2-CD Essential Kinks, in the hope that "Waterloo Sunset" on that collection will be a well-mastered stereo version.

    Yes.
     
  16. Sounds great to me. Celluloid Heroes also sounds awesone

    Thanks for your reply. I have three turntables, one that I can link up to my computer & two others. Rather than buy a CD with the stereo version on I checked the I Tunes store & they had it there. Also a stereo version of David Watts so I bought them both.
