The Digital Dan
   (Audio - 9)

Now thanks to the taper, we have the full scanner source of this show. Best yet, this is mastered from the original DAT master. Since this is a scanner source, there are some receptions problems, but it seems to be a problem only on the guitar channel and not on the soundboard channel. It isn't anything bad, but it is there from time to time. Alex can be heard on the left channel as an electric guitar with no effects. Since Alex uses a wireless guitar system, some people were able to pick it up on a scanner and record it. This is one such case. Alex comes through very clearly with the rest of the band on the monitor channel on the right channel.

While this is probably not a recording I would listen to a lot, it does have its merits. A recording like this provides a very unique perspective and insight into how the songs are deconstructed because you can follow one instrument almost exclusively. If you are a guitar player and are trying to learn Alex's style, this recording is very useful. Special thanks to Admiral Nelson for lending us his source to use for this production. As with all Digital Reproductions recordings, this is available for free trade or for blank trade. You should never pay for this recording as any one of a hundred Rush fans will trade you this recording for free. Please visit the traders section for more information.    (2002-03-06)

Taper's Notes

This show was my first successful scanner recording. After varying degrees of success in previous attempts, I was finally able to perfect the art of wireless recording. Unfortunately, the soundboard channel I locked on to this particular night was less than optimal from an instrument/sound mix standpoint. Overall, this show is very enjoyable to listen to since it is so unique. the DAT master source sounds superior to the analog sourced versions that have floated around over the years.

The performance itself is excellent since this is the 2nd to last show of the RTB tour. If you are a musician (or a recreational musician like myself) then you have to love this recording. Geddy's bass is prominent in the soundboard mix and Alex's guitar is completely raw and isolated on the other channel. What more could you ask for if you are trying to learn Rush's music?

I recorded this show with two high end Radio Shack scanners direct to DAT (32kHz sampling frequency, 4hr LP mode). I used a Sony TCD-D3 DAT recorder and Maxell DM120 DAT tape. At that time, the only affordable DAT portable was the old 1st generation Sony TCD-D3. The D3 sucked battery power like there was no tomorrow so I had to use about three (3) battery packs to do this show. At the time, the rechargeable battery packs were proprietary to Sony and cost about $75 each. I got around this problem by building my own alkaline batter packs (out of miscellaneous Radio Shack parts) for about $10 each. Thanks to models like the D7, D8, and M1 those days are over!    (2002-03-06)
