fred_vogler.JPGGLOUCESTERSHIRE, ENGLAND – MARCH 2009: As of February 8, 2009, Fred Vogler became a multi-Grammy award-winning recording engineer and producer.

But behind the scenes, both onstage and out on the red carpet, there was at least one constant: Sennheiser and Neumann microphones. more

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. He understands, better than most, how a musical performance will translate through the recording, mixing and mastering stages. 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

Kilimanjaro, the world’s most famous freestanding mountain and poster child for the global epidemic of glacial retreat. Such an event did not go undocumented. In fact, HDNet financed the trip that took Everhart, her siblings, a handful of special guests, and a skeleton film crew up from the 100-degree heat of Tanzania to the below-zero summit in only seven days and will air the show on HDNet on February 24, 2009 at 10:00pm. With a sensible “less is more” approach to outfitting the crew, executive producer, director, and writer Brian Cavallaro paired a single Panasonic VariCam with two Sennheiser ew 112P G2 wireless body packs and receivers.
