HOPEWELL JUNCTION, NEW YORK: The proverb states that nothing succeeds like success, and prolific mix engineer Serban Ghenea is living proof of its truth. After some years sharpening his musical intuition as a player in the jazz, funk and R&B worlds, Ghenea discovered he had a natural aptitude for creating compelling mixes. Over fifteen years, he has developed that aptitude into a flawless genius that has the music industry’s A-list artists lined up at the door to work with him. In the last two years alone, Ghenea has mixed over twenty number one songs for artists such as Britney Spears, Miley Cyrus, and Kelly Clarkson. Metric Halo’s ChannelStrip plug-in is Ghenea’s go-to solution for all equalization and dynamics adjustments.

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM – JULY 2010: Under the banner, “Outstanding Music for Outstanding Causes,” and the leadership of Michael Alexander Young, the Charities Philharmonia gets together twice a year to deliver creative and energetic concerts.

Its acoustics are stunning, and Levine has captured impressive stereo and surround recordings with minimal setup times using a Metric Halo ULN-8 mic-pre & interface with a Metric Halo MIO virtual mixer. The most recent recording took place at the end of May, with the ensemble performing Rachmaninov’s Isle of the Dead and Mahler’s Symphony No. 5. more

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS – JULY 2010: Imagine that you’ve purchased a top floor luxury condominium in downtown Chicago, with floor-to-ceiling windows providing breathtaking views of the city’s famous skyline, glorious glittering Lake Michigan, and the distant prairie-turned-exurbs that provide a backlit pillow for the setting sun at day’s end. Where will you put your big screen TV that won’t detract from the view? One condo owner solved this problem with a cutting-edge twist on the most straightforward of solutions: the flat screen TV resides on the wall until it is needed, at which point a motorized track system in the ceiling physically moves it to one of three viewing positions. more
