When the stage collapsed at the Indiana State Fair for the Sugarland concert this past August, where a number of bystanders were injured or killed, two women attempted to profit from the catastrophe. According to the Indianapolis Star, the women were not even at the concert when the tragic event occurred and they tried to take money from the Indiana State Fair Remembrance Fund and the Indiana Tort Claim Fund. “I do not understand the mentality of someone who would look at the circumstances of that night and see the potential for financial profit from this kind of scheme,” Terry Curry, a Marion County Prosecutor, declared. “Most of us would look at those circumstances and feel sympathy and a desire to help assist the real victims in any way we could,” he continued.
Stephanie Murry and Sandra Hurn, the women involved, are now facing felony charges of forgery, perjury, and attempted theft for submitting claims for $22,500 from the fund foundations that aided the victims of the misfortunate event. If convicted, Murray could possibly spend up to 36 years in prison, while Hurn can easily receive 14 years of prison. Hurn, with a lesser prison term, was reported to have confessed of the crime to detectives. “I’m gone play like I was there…I went there anyway – the hospital,” Hurn confessed to authorities explaining what Murray said to her before Murray stole and forged emergency room forms. “We will not stand idly by while greedy individuals take from those who are truly deserving of compensation from this tragedy,” Curry told the Indianapolis Star. Furthermore, over $500,000 from the State Fair Funds has been dispensed out to victims of the incident where heavy winds were to have been blamed. In November alone, 44 victims have been said to have issued a lawsuit against the Indiana State Fair along with the initial lawsuits filed immediately after the disturbing stage collapse.

Recording the rhythm track is where the ability to record 3 or 4 tracks at once is a HUGE benefit. The ability to record the drums in stereo by using two channels, recording the bass into a third channel, and the rhythm guitar playing a “dummy track” into a fourth makes the recording sound tight and clean.
Miking the drums and mixing them to two tracks (left and right) is what to spend your energy to get sounding just right, because drums are very hard to fix once recorded. After that, the bass guitar can be run directly into the multitracker so it will come over the headphones, but, not be picked up by the drum mics. Then, finally, the guitar can be run directly also. Even if the sound is not that good, just to complete the rhythm section, then the guitar can be re-recorded over the first take by miking the speaker cabinet to get the sound you want.
In the event you are using a 4-track, the 4 tracks you just recorded will have to be mixed and recorded to a regular stereo deck to get it down to two tracks. This will bring your recording to the regular deck speed, which is a drawback, but, it will free up 2 tracks for vocals, guitar solos, sound effects, or whatever your music needs.
When mixing down the rhythm track, keep in mind that when it is mixed to the 2 tracks, it is permanently mixed, so be sure to get it right, the only way to change it after this is in the premastering (which will be discussed later) and the changes that can be made at that point is minimal.
