METRIC HALO DIEHARD, GUSSIE MILLER, PREPARES TO RELEASE NEW RECORDING

gussie_miller_2.JPGLOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA – FEBRUARY 2009: Gussie Miller is one of those amazing people who are equally talented on either side of the microphone. With the ears of a musician and the ears of an engineer magically merged, the singer/songwriter/engineer/producer brings a unique sensitivity to his projects.

On the flip side, he understands, again better than most, that some gear fights against the musicality of a piece, whereas other gear enhances it. It is with these subtleties that Miller often finds himself turning to Metric Halo’s ChannelStrip plug-in, of which he says – in a charming lilt that only a professional vocalist can deliver – “it’s all about the algorithm!” more
