Despite the recent tragedy that destroyed about 2/3's of the complex, this will be a fun topic.

Which Le Studio record was your favorite? This could be from Rush or any other artist that recorded there.

My favorite is Presto. Love the ambient textures in the album, Rush had some great ideas at the time.



May Le Studio's far side rest in peace...

I think we can all agree that Counterparts is one of (if not) the best sounding Rush album ever. Crystal clear sound plus perfect mixing.

Yeah.  If I could time travel, I would go to all the recording sessions for all the albums and maybe figure out what bass Geddy used on Limelight.

He used his Jazz Bass! Have you seen the music video? It was recorded in Le Studio!

Talk is Cheap (1988) by Keith Richards was recorded in Le Studio Morin Heights, which I like to listen to sometimes.

The album was also recorded at George Martin's Air Studio's in Montserrat, which also has had some challenges according to this article here.

"The Thin Red Line" by Glass Tiger was recorded at LeStudio (at least part of it). Another great sounding recording.

I have seen the video numerous times. If you've ever looked in the comments of the bass track for Limelight on YouTube, you would see the debate of what he used. To me personally, it sounds like a mix of the Rickenbacker and Jazz but I'm not a bassist or studio engineer so I wouldn't be able to tell you what he exactly used.
