COLUMBUS, OHIO – MAY 2011: As the owner and operator of Paper Street Audio Company, Paul Kavicky has carved a satisfying niche for himself in the world of major theatrical productions, where he serves as production audio engineer and, beyond that, guru of all things audio. Indeed, his latest appointment with the Threesixty Theater’s production of Peter Pan has placed him at the FOH position for over 350 shows spanning four cities throughout the US in over a year-and-a-half. Much of Kavicky’s work back at his well-appointed home studio is related to the theater, creating and recording sound effects and voiceovers. After a thorough search of the available solutions, Kavicky leapt at Metric Halo’s FireWire interfaces. Citing superior audio quality, a road-worthy build, and rock-solid driver support, he outfitted Paper Street Audio Company with six Metric Halo interfaces with eight inputs/outputs each: four 2882s, one LIO-8, and one top-of-the-line ULN-8.
