    Age 47 is ridiculously young for this to happen. Just awful...

    I wonder if this is the reason the band is moving the tour to September. If that's the case, he must have died a couple week ago, because that news was rumored back then..,?

    RIP Mr. McNaughtan...such a sad time for the Rush family

    He died on the 25th...I have some close friends who knew him and it was the night of the 25th.

    What a sad day.


    RIP Andrew. I won a photo signed by him on another Rush website years ago. It was a portrait of Geddy Lee from My Favorite Headache.

    Does anyone know how old he was???

    The Toronto Star stated he was in his mid 40s.

    He was 47

    Why don't you use that PA mixer as the drum submixer?
    1) Run all your drums into it
    2) Take the 2 main outs and run them into your recorder tracks 1-2
    3) Plug a guitar into track 3 and record it as a "scratch track" when the drummer lays down his part.
    4) Plug a mic into track 4 and record a "scratch vocal" while the drummer records his part.

    Now the drums are completely recorded onto tracks 1-2 with a scratch guitar and vocal that the rest of the band uses to finish the song.
    Understand this method?

    5) Now you can record all the other parts seperately, one at a time by listening to the drum tracks and scratch tracks. When you have a good guitar track and bass track recorded then you can erase the scratch guitar and vocal tracks to free-up those tracks for recording.

    Plus with this method you will get No Bleed onto the drum mics from any other instruments in the room.
    This is exactly how I would do it if I only had your limited resources.

    I understand what you are saying and to an extent, that is sort of what we are doing right now with the exception of we are recording everything live (but that is about to change). We are using the PA as a submixer but the drummer has too many mics. The PA has four mic inputs and he is using eight mics. To get around this, he is using another little PA for the remaining four mics. That gives us the inputs on one & two and then on top of all that, there is the overhead mic which requires phantom power.


    Great advice to man, thanks. If we get his drum tracks recorded over the weekend, then I can take the recorder home and work on the guitar and bass tracks as much as I want over the week.

    Go John Bonham and only have 3 mics. hehe


    How many drums does this guy have?

    I know piles of people in animation - both tv series and feature films, but most of them are sculptors, animators, storyboard artists etcetera.

    Do you have any experience in film? The only contacts I have in Toronto are at Cuppa Coffee studio - of "That Darn Dragon" fame. They got a pile of production going on right now... but are somewhat renowned in the industry and you need a fairly stacked resume to get into most positions. Of course Cuppa are mostly specialists in animation / stop animation projects as well.

    My brother in Toronto is an intern or whatever in the film union... IATSE and gets occasional work through them. If you haven't already they might be a good source to contact and give them your credentials - the way they start you off there is calling you on demand for positions union folks cannot fill, and let you slowly build up your work experience and accumulate work hours to actually join the union.

    hmmmm well i'm currently going to Harris, for sound recording and engineering. I could maybe perhaps get into the film side for audio and then work my way in. Thanks for the advice! smile.gif



    I forgot about IATSE!

    By the way cowtothesky,i'm on your Myspace site, You're kind of freakin good man, love your overall
    sound and song structure, hope to be that good someday, Is this real drum or drumloops?
    Wich programs did you use?

    Keep rocking man 1022.gif

    Thanks for that. I sequence the drums on my synth, but it isn't really loops. I had to program each measure, change it up to make it sound somewhat like a real drummer, and piece it together. It gets to be a pain in the ass on those syncopated rhythms and odd time changes. I wish I had a good drummer who lived close by. It would be much easier smile.gif. I plan on putting more stuff up soon. I'll post something here when I do. Keep all of us posted on your new material as well!

    You use Logic?

    The Bigsby kills it for me. I despise those things.
    The middle pickup on a Les Paul is also just about useless. I had a 3 pickup SG Custom and I kept snagging my pick on the middle pickup.

    I'll take the Lifeson 355 and a Les Paul Axcess thanks.

    Me too. ewwwwwww



    I would take Lifeson's over that thing any day!


    ewww gold hardware???
