Wow that was fun to listen to! Thanks for posting. For those of us growing up in the 80's he was our "Ringo" or at least mine. Amazing that he was able to keep that level of performance up to the end of his playing years. No easy task. Rest in Peace Professor!

Real isolated drums? I've listened to a few of this guy's other vids where he isolates drums and they don't sound like the originals to me. Maybe the originals somehow triggering vst samples, but not the real original tracks. Or am I wrong?

That is a live performance and they sound like his drums to me. He tuned his drums much higher than most people.

Yep, live, from E..SL. Had it the day it was released and wore that one and two tapes of it out. I remember Carol Miller played the heck out of TSoR on WNEW just about every day. The good ol' days.

Which toms and dimensions/set/ would that be...
on his older kits it went
Concert Toms:6 8 10 12
Rack Toms:12 13 15
Floor Tom:18
Gong drum:20
Newer kits were just rack and floors:8 10 12 13 15 16 and 18in Toms
Minor differences

You can really hear the drive or push that he propels the song forward with.

Agree with above, although I haven't heard that live recording, not sure if that's his actual drumming.

More than likely a feed off the board. Good separation and I thought his execution was very good...love the high toms! I bought an 8" largely due to him and Copeland's sound.

Most of those high tom sounds are his 12" double headed tom. He had that one tuned really high.

I'd love to know how this was done. I've tried to isolate instruments in Audacity and it never works...

Peart was such a unique drummer but to my ear he always sounded so stiff and here it's magnified.
