SEVEN-TIME GRAMMY-NOMINATED MACKLEMORE AND RYAN LEWIS TAKE METRIC HALO GEAR ON THE ROAD

SAFETY HARBOR, FLORIDA – DECEMBER 2013: Rapper Macklemore and producer Ryan Lewis’ most recent release, The Heist, grabbed the number one spots on the Billboard U.S. R&B/Hip-Hop and Rap charts and quickly sold its way to Platinum status. It was a fast start that shows no sign of letting up, as the duo recently garnered seven Grammy nominations, including Album of the Year, Song of the Year (for “Same Love”), Best New Artist, Best Rap Performance, and Best Rap Album. That’s an incredibly rare feat for any artist, let alone a duo whose inspired musicianship and honest lyrics leave their street credibility untouched by such towering industry benchmarks. Perhaps just as telling, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis were “the most streamed” artists on Spotify in 2013. Although they spent the fall of 2013 packing arenas all over the U.S. in support of The Heist, in the downtime between gigs they turned their attention to the music that will form its follow-up, and Metric Halo is with them along the way.

Capturing and working out ideas on the road is often seen as a balancing act between quick-and-dirty methods that are fast, on the one hand, and higher-quality techniques that take more time and thought to set up, on the other. Lewis largely avoids that compromise with a Metric Halo ULN-2 interface. “The ULN-2 is a pretty unique interface,” he said. “It has two good-quality pre-amps and yet it’s small enough to fit into a carry-on. It also acts as a great interface for Pro Tools, or any other audio program that I use. Macklemore and I have used it countless times on the road.”

After using the Metric Halo ULN-2 for a short while, Lewis was alerted to Metric Halo’s collection of seven plug-ins, sold together as the Metric Halo Production Bundle. He has already used a number of the plug-ins to mix new music in the studio and on the road. Among them are Character – a plug-in that models the sonic signature of a wide range of classic and contemporary audio gear; HaloVerb – an authentic-sounding reverb, Precision DeEsser; and TransientControl – a unique dynamics processor.

“Character is great when I’m not exactly sure what I want to do with something that doesn’t have the right texture,” Lewis said. “It can pull out different pieces that weren’t there before. I love HaloVerb and use it all the time. It has a good variety of feelings and a full range of spring and hall sounds that work well on vocals and instruments.” Some of Lewis’ uses are particular to rap and hip-hop: “Rap vocals have a lot of punch and can get very sibilant. The Precision DeEsser does a great job of cleaning that up. Finally, I didn’t expect the fairly simple TransientControl plug-in to be as useful as it turned out to be. Now it’s one of my favorite plug-ins because it can capture the accents in a recording. For instance, when I have a break beat and I really want the snare and kick to pop, but I’d like to lose everything else in the recording, I use TransientControl.”

Hackenbacker Tackles the Audio for a Classic Tale of Valour

Award-winning facility Hackenbacker has completed the entire audio post production for The Musketeers, a new 10-part BBC Drama Production for BBC One that will make its television debut next year.

Commissioned by Ben Stephenson, Controller, BBC Drama Commissioning, and Danny Cohen, Director of Television, BBC (previously Controller, BBC One), this contemporary take on Alexandre Dumas’ classic tale of The Three Musketeers was created and written by Adrian Hodges.

Hackenbacker’s founder Nigel Heath, who was also re-recording mixer for the series, says: “The Musketeers was pretty much the dream job for us: there were some fantastic opportunities for sound in this series, the stories are brilliant, the show looks amazing and the score by Murray Gold via Air Studios sounds astonishing. All in all, it’s been a fantastic experience. The mixes have run extremely smoothly, which is a testament to the fine work done by our in house sound editors.”

The Musketeers stars Luke Pasqualino (Skins, The Borgias) as D’Artagnan, a skilled fighter from rural Gascony who is on a mission to right the wrong of his father’s death. When he reaches the lawless streets of 17th century Paris he meets Athos, Aramis and Porthos, the Three Musketeers played respectively by Tom Burke (Great Expectations, The Hour), Santiago Cabrera (Merlin, Heroes) and Howard Charles (Royal Shakespeare Company). Although they are primarily Louis X111’s bodyguards, these highly trained soldiers also stand resolutely for social justice, honour, valour and love. To D’Artagnan they are kindred spirits and, despite meeting them in unfortunate circumstances, he soon becomes accepted as part of the group.

The Musketeers also features performances from Peter Capaldi (The Hour, The Thick Of It), Tamla Kari (Cuckoo, The Inbetweeners Movie), Maimie McCoy (Loving Miss Hatto), and Hugo Speer (Bedlam).

The 10-part drama (10×60-minute) is a BBC Drama Production London for BBC One, co-produced with BBC America in association with BBC Worldwide.

Jessica Pope is the BBC executive producer, Adrian Hodges is the creator and executive producer, and Colin Wratten is producer.

Casino Lounge Upgrades with New Yamaha CIS Series

BUENA PARK, Calif.—Already outfitted with Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems equipment, Tulalip Casino Resort in Tulalip, Washington recently upgraded its Destinations Lounge audio system with the new Yamaha Commercial Installation Solutions (CIS) product line. The system includes one MTX3 processor, two XMV4280 amplifiers, six VXS8 speakers, 16 VSC8W speakers, and two VXS10SW subs, all purchased on the recommendation of Clarity Media Group (CMG), Lake Oswego, Oregon.

“We decided to use the Yamaha CIS products primarily based on the sound quality of the demo units we listened to, states Travis Cibolski, co-owner and system designer, CMG. We also appreciated the system’s ability to integrate with the existing infrastructure to offer simple operation for our customer.”

Cibolski said CMG wanted to create a relaxing and high-end environment in the Destination Lounge. The audio is accompanied by a 4K Atmosphere video system displaying music being played by the artists, a mix of music videos, “mood” music which contains pictures of nature, cityscapes, etc. with music, and “digital karaoke” style scene with a live band covering songs. Each band member is played on a different TV appearing on four HD screens. For this reason, stereo in every seat was a must. The wide dispersion of the Yamaha CIS speakers allowed us to do this without cluttering the ceiling with lots of speakers. Surface mounted speakers are used for the entry and placed between suspended ceiling panels. The Yamaha speakers are compact enough to be completely hidden, offering pleasing sound with a low visual impact.”

“We knew that this system needed to be high end and sound crystal clear at all listening levels, while maintaining the aesthetics of the space,” states Aaron Jackson, Audio Visual Technical Engineer, at Tulalip Casino. “I fell in love with Yamaha products after CMG installed a head-to-toe Yamaha/NEXO system in the Canoes Cabaret, our live music venue. Our Destinations Lounge system sounds amazing through the entire spectrum and has beautifully uniform coverage in every seat. We have come to expect that when we buy a Yamaha product; it’s going to work, it’s going to look great, and it’s going to sound amazing. Bottom line for us is, Yamaha has struck the perfect balance of price and quality.”

The Yamaha CIS product offerings have been created specifically for installed sound market applications where there may not be an experienced audio operator running the system; for example, restaurants, retail outlets, public address systems within the transportation industry, convention centers, hotel ballrooms.

Funky Junk Supplies Royer Mics For The Stereophonics Latest Tour

The Stereophonics, one of Britain’s most instantly recognisable bands, have just completed a major UK arena tour to promote their new album Graffiti On The Train.

The equipment list for the tour included three Royer R-121L ribbon microphones, which were supplied by Royer’s UK distributor Funky Junk.

Royer’s R-121 Ribbon Microphone is renowned for its ability to bring an extremely natural and realistic analogue sound to digital recording and live stages. The TEC Award winning R-121L, the ruggedized and more road-worthy ‘live’ version of the microphone, has been specifically designed to withstand the rigours of live touring. Royer won the prestigious 2013 Technical Grammy partly for their R-121, the first ribbon microphone suitable for close-miking electric guitar and other high SPL sound sources.

The microphones were chosen for the Stereophonics tour by FOH engineer Dave Roden who wanted to continue with their ongoing ethos of constant improvement of the overall sound quality at their live gigs.

“I haven’t used Royer R-121 microphones in a live situation before, but the band have used them in the studio and been very happy with the results they have achieved,” Roden says. “I have also heard them being used by other FOH engineers whom I greatly admire, (Jim Ebdon and Marc Carolan for example) and have always been really impressed with the results. I decided to use them, too, in order to up our game.”

Dave Roden was confident that incorporating Royer R-121 ribbon microphones into his live equipment arsenal would help him capture lead vocalist/guitarist Kelly Jones and lead backing vocalist/guitarist Adam Zindani’s individual guitar tones, as well as the raw energy for which the Stereophonics are famous.

“The band members have all moved on to IEM’s (in ear monitors) and they were hearing things completely differently to the way they’ve been used to with wedges,” Dave Roden explains. “In order to adapt, some of the on-stage sources required a more hi-fi approach. This was a challenge for everyone involved, but was a very positive and necessary step in respect to the future performance capabilities of the band, and gave our Monitor Engineer Dave Retson and myself the perfect opportunity to significantly upgrade our mic stock. Both the band on stage and the audience in the arenas were very happy with the guitar sounds they were hearing when we used the R-121L’s on the tour.”

DPA Microphones Win Popolski Family Approval

Members of the popular German cabaret act The Popolski Family are so delighted with their recently acquired DPA microphones that they have made a short video extolling their virtues for DPA’s German distributor, Mega Audio.

The comedy-music show is currently using three DPA d:vote™ 4099 Instrument Microphones to capture the sound of its accordion and brass section.

Sound engineer Hans Wollrath, who is also CEO of The Popolski Family company, says: “The performance of these microphones has been outstanding and the hardware, cables and connectors appear to be virtually unbreakable. We have been really pleased with the sound they have delivered. They are very reliable in a touring environment because they are so tough, and they are equally good for video and television appearances because they are so small and unobtrusive.”

Founded in 2008 by Achim Hagemann under the pseudonym Pavel Popolski, The Popolski Family plays 70 live dates a year in Germany and is seen annually by more than 100,000 people. The show revolved around a pseudo-Polish family of musicians who weave popular rock classics into a comedy framework.

DPA’s d:facto™ Vocal Mics Hit the Road on MKS Tour


DPA’s d:facto™ II Vocal Microphones have been proving their flexibility and giving great performances on tour with MKS, the original Sugababes line-up.

The mics have also been at work in the prestigious setting of the world-famous Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club in London. Charlie Dale, in-house engineer at Ronnie Scott’s and Front of House engineer for the band MKS and US rapper Angel Haze, is using DPA d:facto II Vocal Microphones across all these very different setups.

It was at Ronnie Scott’s that Dale first came across the microphones. DPA’s UK distributor Sound Network lent the club a unit to try out and Dale was immediately impressed.

“They instantly became my mic of choice for lead vocals, surpassing two big brands I had been using previously,” he says. “‘The d:facto’s mostly flat frequency response until its soft boost at 10 kHz gave me the ability to sculpt a very true representation of the performer’s voice with clear highs so that I don’t have to fight against feedback to pull out, and with all the warm tone one would expect from many jazz vocals.”

Dale decided that for the same reasons he wanted to use it on his pop gigs, again allowing him to easily create vocal sounds on a par with the studio-quality vocals of the artists’ records. And it’s not just the engineers who delight in the sound of the d:facto II Vocal Microphones.

“With performers, the clarity of the mic is often commented on,” Dale adds. “It allows a vocalist to hear the nuances of their vocal and gives them more control, even through loud stage wedges.”


Dale has had the opportunity to work with many big-name microphone brands in his career but, after hearing the d:facto, he believes that none of them offer the clarity and tone he wants from a live vocal.

“With MKS, all three of the girls have very different and distinct-sounding voices, and the d:facto II Vocal Microphone handled all of them with ease,” he says.

Dale’s work with rapper Angel Haze could hardly be more different.

“She rarely sings on a gig,” Dale explains. “Instead, she spends most of the time rapping hard and fast into the capsule at close proximity, often cupping the mic as many rap artists do. But the d:facto II handles all this well, making it much easier for me to pick up every syllable she spits out without loss of tonal quality on her vocal.”

Dale’s criteria for an excellent microphone are, he says, clarity, tone, excellent feedback rejection and low off-axis noise. To date, artists who Dale has used DPA’s d:facto with have all been very positive about the microphone, as have other engineers.

“Having a great vocal sound is often the hardest part of the mix, especially on noisy stages, and the d:facto helps on that front by offering a very clear and clean initial signal,” he says. “Its linear off-axis response means that what little bleed there is from wedges and back line is very clear, un-distorted and, most importantly, low-level, allowing me to get a great vocal sound every time, no matter how big or small the room, what the musical style is and how loud the band are. Studio-quality vocal tone on every gig – how could I say no to that?”

ImmersAV™ Technology Brings a “You are There” 3-D Audio/HD Video Experience to Consumers

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS – DECEMBER 2013: The evolution of iOS, Android, Windows Mobile and other operating systems for smartphones and tablet computers is changing the way consumers receive and experience audio and visual entertainment. ImmersAV Technology builds on the power of these revolutionary devices and takes it steps forward. The “You Are There” immersive entertainment experience from ImmersAV is based on the synergy of binaural audio and high-definition video. ImmersAV also brings the spatial capabilities of binaural headphones to two-speaker stereo listening using proprietary Crosstalk Cancellation (CTC) filter techniques. Best of all, the “You Are There” experience requires no additional audio/video product purchases for consumers.

Audio pioneer and Engineering Producer, Robert Schulein (right) along with Signal-Processing Researcher/Designer, Dan Mapes-Riordan, founded ImmersAV Technology in 2010. Their mission was to create a practical 3-D spatial-audio experience for consumers using existing acoustic playback technology. To make this happen new production tools and recording techniques were developed. Productions using “You Are There” technology from ImmersAV can be found on our YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/ImmersAV/videos. Not only do these recordings enhance the entertainment experience, they give musicians a new and original vehicle to present their music to their fan base.

“As a pioneer in the development of professional and consumer multi-channel surround sound technology in the 1990s, I was frustrated that no technology was addressing users that could not afford, or did not have room for, 5.1 and larger playback systems,” explains Schulein. “ImmersAV Technology has focused on the interest in spatial sound within this market segment. Regardless of the quality level of the headphones or loudspeakers being used, the “You Are There” experience creates a new world of listening enjoyment. I believe that ImmersAV now provides a solution to consumers who could never afford surround sound before. Now they can get more than surround sound on stereo equipment they already own.”

Mapes-Riordan adds, “Refinement of our filters can be attributed to our ability to compare the spatial accuracy of our results over loudspeakers with original binaural headphone files. Since we produce recordings for both headphones and loudspeakers, the listener has the unique ability to immerse themselves using both techniques.”

ABOUT IMMERSAV TECHNOLOGY Founded in 2010 ImmersAV™ Technology began with the goal of providing consumers with a “You Are There” immersive entertainment experience using innovative microphone production and signal processing techniques. These techniques use patented microphone technology and proprietary ImmersAV Crosstalk Cancellation (CTC) filters.
