More than 80 channels of Millennia HV-3D microphone preamplifiers were chosen for the Rolling Stones live HBO concert from Madison Square Garden, which aired on January 18, 2003. Recording engineers Ed Cherney and David Hewitt specified the mic pre’s, which were split to FOH, monitor, recording and live TV mix.
According to Hewitt, “We used a total of 82 channels of HV-3Ds onstage to drive about 800 feet of wire down to the Remote Recording Services’ Silver Truck five stories below. We took the inputs in line-level to our Neve VRM and Studer 961 Series consoles and mixed them down to Dolby Stereo for broadcast. We also recorded the show to Studer D827 digital 48-track recorders for later remix. Ed Cherney was the music mixer and Don Worsham was the broadcast production mixer. I am absolutely amazed at how good it sounded.”
