I never thought of those questions Grohl asked, mentioned in the first paragraph, as a distraction. For instance, getting the musician to feel it, or find the sweet spot, is in my opinion the single most crucial part of making great recordings (Sound City was a recording studio after all and had great success in it's day). As far as the analog question is concerned, digital was the straw that broke the camels back and spelled the end of Sound City, therefore a crucial part of the Sound City story. Sound City is a great movie, but I believe it's geared more towards music production/audiophile types. It's interesting wondering what my reaction to the movie would have been if I hadn't been into the technical side of music production; being as I am into those things, I loved every minute.
