One Danley Jericho Horn (aka the World’s Loudest Reference Monitor) delivers clean and clear audio for 17,000 fans at Montana State University.

BOZEMAN, MONTANA – SEPTEMBER 2011: The Montana State University football team first took the field in 1897 and has remained a worthy vessel of school pride ever since. The Bobcats have won numerous NCAA titles and are the current champions of the Big Sky Conference. With capacity crowds squeezing into the 12,000-seat Bobcat Stadium in recent seasons, the school funded a plan to dramatically upgrade the facility. The upgrade added 5,200 seats, a sophisticated new scoreboard, and an audio system that may provide a glimpse into the future of stadium sound reinforcement. The system centers on Danley Sound Labs’ revolutionary Jericho Horn JH-90, which throws “near-field quality” audio up to four-hundred feet from its position more

During the recent Rob Zombie/Slayer tour, system engineer, Andrew Dowling used Metric Halo’s SpectraFoo to tune the PA.

HOPEWELL JUNCTION, NEW YORK – AUGUST 2011: Andrew Dowling is charged with an impressive task: make a FOH mix translate to every seat in any random venue. He frequently works for twenty-time Grammy winner and country legend Vince Gill, but Dowling applies his in-demand skills for bands from radically divergent genres as well.

To get signals in reliably and to analyze them powerfully, Dowling calls on a Metric Halo ULN-8 interface paired with Metric Halo’s SpectraFoo Complete analysis software.

JESSUP, MARYLAND – AUGUST 2011: South African Afro-fusion band Freshlyground has been making a name for itself since 2002 with several successful albums and a number of notable performances, including a collaboration with Shakira on “Waka Waka (This Time for Africa),” the official song for the FIFA Soccer World Cup 2010. The band’s most recent release, Radio Africa, continues to gain critical acclaim, winning two SAMA awards – “Best Engineer” and “Best Adult Contemporary Album” – and has recently earned multiple Africa Music Awards nominations, including “Best Album” and “Best Music Video.” The album’s producer, Fab Dupont, said he and Freshlyground couldn’t have done it without an API 1608.

NYC’S RECORDING AND MIX ENGINEER ARIEL BORUJOW PLUGS IN WITH METRIC HALO

ariel_borujow.JPG

NEW YORK, NEW YORK – AUGUST 2011: “I work too many hours,” laughed Ariel Borujow, chief recording and mix engineer at New York City’s now-famous Stadium Red studios. With fifteen years spent in front of the monitors, Borujow has worked with Kanye West, The Black Eyed Peas, Faith Evans, J-Lo, and countless others. His efforts, coupled with his knack for transforming whatever crosses his path into aural magic, have earned the young engineer multiple platinum albums and a Grammy nomination. Nevertheless, Borujow is hardly content to rest on his laurels. Although he does sometimes take a day off, putting in a six-day week instead of his usual seven, on the days he does work, it’s never less than ten hours. And if there’s ever a dip in the frenzy at Stadium Red, Borujow puts in time at his moonlighting gig, delivering mixes for Fox broadcasting. With deadlines looming and a more

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA – AUGUST 2011: BeatBox is San Francisco’s newest venue for live music, dance parties, performances, art exhibits, meetings, and community events. Although its patrons expect great music in hip and comfortable surroundings, it’s a safe bet that no one has higher expectations than BeatBox’ three creators: Andy Zivic, Paul Saccone and Tchukon Shanks. Their vision for BeatBox is inspiring. They had two guiding principals: deliver a new experience each time a guest visits and provide audiophile quality sound that the other clubs couldn’t match. As everything is modular, the former warehouse space can take on radically different moods and configurations from night to night. And to fulfill their commitment to audiophile sound, they chose Danley gear. Indeed, BeatBox is the first club on the West Coast to feature Danley Sound Labs loudspeakers and subwoofers, which deliver an incomparably richer sonic experience – from the lowest lows to more
