HI folks! Here in Brazil people are very excited about the recent release of Rush Live in Rio - DVD. As a big fan of this group and all the tech stuff behind their production, I also went after my DVD copy. It was released in the USA before arriving Brazil. Several times we almost cried watching that very nice performance on screen, entirely recorded in Brazil and seeing that they wanted to come to FLorianópolis ( the island where I live )because they found it beautiful!! However, we were completly disappointed with the sound quality of this DVD. Show of hands sounds 100x better and it was done in 1989, maybe? Although Geddy´s bass sounds as never before, the mix balance sounds like an amateur mix. Sometimes the vocals are buried in the middle of the mix, too much low end/reverb on guitars. The keyboards sometimes sound like a plastic $50 toy kid. The mastering side... You can feel pumping all the time. We know they had some serious technical problems: in one show their pm1D stopped functioning for a few seconds, some midi gear lost memory, lots of delay and so. Has anyone else noticed this? I have listened both in stereo and dolby. I am still listening in other monitoring systems just to confirm what a few guys ( including me) have also reported.
