    I don't care how many times I watch it, the ability of that many people to sync up and perform the song is incredible. Dave Grohl has responded and says they will schedule a date.

    Grandson introduced me to this video, now I see why he likes Foo Fighters.

    I would really like to know how in the h*ll the Sound Engineer synced these amazing musicians together. Would love to see his project/pan sheets!

    I was blown away by the energy, love, peace and devotion for each other that emerged from this project that was captured in the video!

    Cheers

    I have one theory, the lights on the tower might mean something for timing.

    I really would like to see the sound recording (mics) layout for all instruments/singers.

    YES!, 3x orange 1xgreen the green is the full beat timing (don't know the wright word atm) "four-on-the-floor!" :D

    Cheers

    I was actually VERY close to going to see them a few weeks ago. I'm only ~3 hours by car from Citi Field, the logistics just didn't work out though as I had vacation 2 days after and was going to be driving for that also.

    Hi guys,

    PSN EUROPE has written an article for those who are interested in the Sound Design & Engineering!

    [​IMG]

    The rest of the audio team comprised sound designer Francesco Penolazzi (pictured left with Ferrari)

    Enjoy!

    Cheers

    Cans for a conventional click track were only available for 250 musicians, so the other participants followed a ‘luminous click’ provided by twelve DTS LED fixtures, chosen for their ultra-fast on/off speed and mounted on the 18-foot (5m) high tower hosting conductor Marco Sabiu (right). :cool:

    Cheers

    Agreed.... this was freaking cool to watch and listen too and it actually sounds good!!!!!

    I love watching the long shots that are focused down the drum line when a roll or cymbal crash is done and you see them "ALL" do it. Love it!
