jay_ruston.JPG

HOPEWELL JUNCTION, NEW YORK – JULY 2011: Producer and engineer Jay Ruston has been recording and mixing tracks for artists such as The Donnas, Jars of Clay, Steel Panther, and Meatloaf for going on twenty years. He has watched the technology that is championed by the industry shift and evolve, sometimes for the better and sometimes for the worse. He hangs onto the better bits. For example, Ruston is an avid (ha!) user of Pro Tools, which he pairs with a Trident console for analog summing. Recently, while working with Anthrax on their forthcoming release, Worship Music, Ruston found Metric Halo’s ChannelStrip plug-in, which combines the classic frequency and dynamics tools found on the monster analog consoles of yore. Together with Anthrax producer and guitarist Rob Caggiano, Ruston recorded and mixed the album.

“I heard about Metric Halo and specifically, ChannelStrip, from Rob and from an article I was more

HIMEJI CITY, JAPAN – JULY 2011: When it comes time for the sixty pint-sized pupils of Sugoh Nursery School in Himeji City, Japan to put on a show for their parents and caregivers, every budding voice gets heard. It’s not that they project especially well or even that the acoustics of the school’s modest movable stage are so divine. Rather, Sugoh Nursery School has a truly professional-grade sound reinforcement system centered on a cost-effective Ashly pêma integrated processor and amplifier. The system puts the polish on the students’ hard work and allows audience members to truly appreciate their efforts and accomplishments. That gets back to the students, of course, who are inspired to rise to even greater works.

The stage and its sound reinforcement system are part of Sugoh’s brand new state-of-the-art building, which replaces its former residence of 34 years. “The old building had a sound reinforcement system more
