Thank you for posting this!  A lot of the technical sound engineering info was over my head but very interesting anyway.  As always, I am totally impressed by Rush, the people they hire, and the lengths they go to in order to bring us the best sounds possible.  And I can't imagine losing the time code in the middle of the concert and having to figure out what to do to, eeek!

Too bad they couldn't do anything to help Geddy's voice.

Great article thanks for sharing. Really enjoyed the bit about the Stereo vs Surround mixes, a lot more to it than I'd originally thought.

Would've been nice if half of the drum mics hadn't been turned off.

I've tried twice to get the page to load and get as far as a picture with two men standing in front of a console of gadgets and knobs.

Does anyone know how someone becomes a record producer, or are record producers former sound engineers?

Can someone just post the straight link to the article?  Cygnus' site is anything but dial-up friendly (nor should it be considering I am probably one of only 1% left in this country who doesn't have high speed) and there's too much stuff to load before I can actually see the article and get the link to the rest of it myself.

Becoming a studio bitch is the first step. Then, it's who you know and who you blow.

Studio bitch works for free typically.

No, that's the page I have tried three times to get.

There is a link on that page to the article in the magazine.  That's the one I am talking about.   It just occurred to me that I can google the magazine and see what comes up.

Edit:  Found the magazine and the article only goes up to a point.  You have to be a subscriber to get the rest, so don't post the link on Cygnus here.  Probably will get in trouble.  I'll try again on Monday.  Maybe I will have better luck.

The link I posted isn't the same one as the one posted up above.
