PORTABLE METRIC HALO ULN-8 A GODSEND FOR “OUTSTANDING MUSIC FOR OUTSTANDING CAUSES”

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. All proceeds from the events go to benefit worthwhile causes and organizations. In recent years, Andrew Levine has had the opportunity to record the concerts, which almost always take place at St. John’s, Smith Square, in central London, a building erected in 1728 in the English Baroque-style. 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

ASHLY DSP SELECTED TO PROCESS CHICAGO LUXURY CONDO MOVING TV 5.1 SYSTEM

chicago_luxcondo.JPG

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

METRIC HALO’S ULN-8 DELIVERS STUDIO SOUND FOR TV LOCATION SOUND MIXER GRAHAM GARDNER

graham_gardner.JPG

NEW YORK, NEW YORK – JULY 2010: For nearly a decade, Graham Gardner has been dutifully recording the on-location and on-set sound for both reality-based and scripted television shows in and around New York City. The business is fast-paced, and success is frequently measured not by the captured nuance of a subtle reverb tail, but by the reliable capture of intelligible spoken word. In reality-based work especially, there is no tolerance for a sound mixer’s request to “do that again!” But unlike many of his colleagues, Gardner has not abandoned the simple satisfaction of a sound well-recorded and, somewhat surprisingly, his clients are noticing the difference. Apart from technique, Gardner delivers a superior product with Metric Halo’s FireWire ULN-8 audio interface, which provides studio-grade mic preamps and AD/DA conversion, along with the DSP muscle to process and mix with efficiency and sonority. more

API 1608 GIVES LEGENDARY COUNTRY PRODUCER PAUL WORLEY HIS ANALOG “GOOSH”

paul_worley.JPG

NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE: Paul Worley has enjoyed a storybook career. Starting out as the proverbial studio gofer, making coffee, sweeping debris, and hoping for a big break, Worley advanced in small measure by serendipity and, in large measure, by his obvious talents, both musical and social. He went on to become a session guitarist, a vice president at Sony BMG, chief creative officer at Warner Bros. Records, and, perhaps most famously, the coveted producer of several legendary country music albums. Indeed, Worley has worked with Big & Rich, Lady Antebellum, and Martina McBride, and has earned two Grammys for his production on the Dixie Chicks’ Wide Open Spaces and Fly. more

GODFATHER OF HOUSE MUSIC MARSHALL JEFFERSON SPINS ON A METRIC HALO ULN-8

marshall_jefferson.JPG

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS: Marshall Jefferson is an epic figure in the house music movement, having helped found the genre in Chicago in the mid-1980s. In fact, his “Move Your Body” is just as well known by its adopted title, “The House Music Anthem.” Other enduring hits include “7 Ways To Jack” and “Open Our Eyes.” Apart from his own work, Jefferson’s presence runs deep in the House, Acid House, and Deep House movements through his collaborations, productions and remixes. Now splitting his base between Chicago and the UK, Jefferson travels the world on a near-weekly basis for DJ engagements. He always brings (just) his laptop and his Metric Halo ULN-8 preamp/interface/DSP, which he uses both for the show and to make good on a backlog of remix requests back at the hotel. more
