MULTI-FACETED AUDIO ENGINEER MICHAEL ROMANOWSKI USES METRIC HALO’S ULN-8 FOR MASTERING, MIXING AND RECORDING

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA: When audio engineer Michael Romanowski describes the Metric Halo Mobile I/O ULN-8 interface as the “do-everything” box, he isn’t exaggerating. In fact, the ULN-8 interface is so versatile that it has become an essential component in Romanowski’s workflow, whether he is recording on location or in the studio, mixing at home, or working in his mastering facility.

“I have two that I use at the studio, and then I have several that I use for location recording,” explains Romanowski, who was recently appointed as the Chairman of the P&E Wing of the San Francisco Chapter of the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences. Examples of Romanowski’s location recording projects range from Americana musician Todd Snider to the American Bach Soloists, with a wide variety of rock, jazz, pop and blues performers in between.

ASHLY BRINGS SIMPLICITY AND FUNCTIONALITY TO BECKER COLLEGE GYMNASIUM SOUND SYSTEM

becker1.JPG

LEICESTER, MASSACHUSETTS: The Leicester campus of Massachusetts’ multi-campus Becker College is the 19th oldest campus in the United States. Indeed, the great John Hancock put his John Hancock… er, signature… on its charter in 1784. Now a prestigious private school, Becker’s 1,700 students uphold its strong academic tradition, and recent years have witnessed tremendous growth in the school’s athletic program. As such, the lone 37 year-old speaker cabinet, in the equally-old Leicester Campus Gymnasium, was proving more and more inadequate, and the school was forced to rent a better system for most events. When administrators approved a modest budget for a new system, the multimedia crew and athletic directors were overjoyed to receive a fabulous sounding and remarkably easy to control system, the logic, processing, and interface of which is provided by an Ashly ne24.24M matrix processor with intuitive Ashly remote control units.

MORE HD SURROUND SOUND FROM SKY WITH SOUNDFIELD’S UPM-1 • Satellite Broadcaster Buys Eight SoundField Stereo-to-5.1 Upmix Processors

keith_lane.JPGLAS VEGAS, NEVADA: European satellite broadcaster BSkyB, better known as Sky, has purchased eight of SoundField’s stereo-to-5.1 upmix processors for live use in their studios and outside broadcast facilities. The SoundField UPM-1 is a 1U, 19-inch rack processor which can create a convincing, phase-coherent 5.1 surround panorama from stereo audio in real-time, without adding any reverb or unwanted additional phase shifts. It does this by adaptively analyzing the two-channel stereo material, separating the content into its ambient and direct components, and placing any material from the center of the original stereo mix, such as commentary or dialogue, into the center channel of the resulting 5.1 panorama. For HD broadcasters, the UPM-1 ensures that most audio can be broadcast in fold-down friendly surround sound, without obvious moments when the broadcast soundscape narrows to stereo during the transmission of older, stereo-only material.

“The UPM-1 is more
