Join Brent Carpenter for an in-depth discussion in this video Loading out of the venue, part of Live Sound Engineering Techniques: On Tour with Rush.
…The big rock show is over.…They've taken the chairs away, the roadies are furiously getting their equipment put…back into the trucks, the local stagehands are pushing gear out for us.…One of the most important things that we do on a day to day basis, we…load our truck in the same method, the same manner, and the same order every day.…We have to do that, number one to make sure it all fits every night.…Number two, it's how we maintain our inventory.…If piece X isn't here today, we have to figure it where it is,…why it's not here if it's not going with us.…So, every time you see somebody, when you see a rock show load out…a truck, it's always done in the same order, the same way every time.…
