Mike,

Thank you very much for the real story on the Def Leppard BGs. And thanks for all the detail as well. Sounds like you're saying it was at minimum 120 voices. (at minimum!!!) That's pretty amazing. I never would have guessed that smooth, homogenized sound came from that process, but it makes sense that by using so many tracks it would create such a silky sound.

I was just listening to both Pyromania + Hysteria the other day, and they both are brilliant sounding pieces of work. I can see why you wouldn't need to use reverb on some of those BGs, they almost have the sound like a very rich reverb of the lead vocal sometimes anyway. Absolutely love the sound of those records.

Thanks again for the insight.
