ateneu_barcelones.JPGBARCELONA, SPAIN – FEBRUARY 2011: Located in Barcelona, Spain, the Ateneu Barcelonès is a unique institution. It is not a school, though many have learned there. It is not a club, though many gather there. It is not a library, though many books and a wealth of knowledge are preserved there. The Ateneu Barcelonès is perhaps best described as an intellectual cultural center, more

BEN ARTHUR’S DUBWAY DAYS AND THE METRIC HALO ULN-8

HOPEWELL JUNCTION, NEW YORK – FEBRUARY 2011: Ben Arthur is a charismatic, self-made singer/songwriter who has released four critically-lauded albums and opened for such acts as Tori Amos, Bruce Hornsby, and the Dave Matthews Band. His knack for successful collaborations has earned him the friendship of many very talented musicians who tend to fly just under the radar of the mass media. That knack and those friendships will be put to the dramatic test on Dubway Days, a web-TV show – and possible Network TV show – that will air its pilot episode on February 14, 2011 at www.breakthruradio.com. It so happens that Ben Arthur is also an ardent Metric Halo user.

The tagline for Dubway Days, “Two Artists… One Day… One Song,” sums up the mechanics of the show, but its drama hinges on the immensity of that task. Ben Arthur and a guest begin a day of more

HOPEWELL JUNCTION, NEW YORK – FEBRUARY 2011: There is much to admire in a band that forms for the love of music and then, because of the members’ talent, inspiration, and joyful willingness to play tour after tireless tour, achieves well-deserved success. A bluegrass band that elegantly draws inspiration from tradition, The Infamous Stringdusters recently earned a Grammy nomination for Best Country Instrumental Performance for “Magic #9,” the fourth track on the band’s third album, Things That Fly. The Infamous Stringdusters are rather famous – despite the appellation – on the bluegrass-friendly stages of the nation for both their quality (see above) and their quantity (the band plays approximately 150 shows a year!). FOH engineer Drew Becker was fresh off a degree from Full Sail and still rather green when he went to work full-time for the band three years ago. Since then he has logged over 500 shows, some more

HOPEWELL JUNCTION, NEW YORK: Rob Caggiano is perhaps best known as the guitarist for heavy metal icon Anthrax, but those in the scene know he is responsible for some of the best-produced albums of the last decade, including We’ve Come For You All by Anthrax, Hunter by A Life Once Lost, Glitter In The Gutter by Jesse Malin (featuring Bruce Springsteen) and the Grammy-nominated Nymphetamine by Cradle of Filth, among many, many others. Most recently, Rob is busy producing and engineering the forthcoming debut album for his new band The Damned Things which features himself and Scott Ian of Anthrax together with members of Fall Out Boy and Every Time I Die. To perfect the guitar and bass sounds on the band’s forthcoming album to be released on Island/Def Jam, Caggiano stepped up from his longtime favorite interface, a Metric Halo ULN-2, more

METRIC HALO’S ULN-8 TRANSCENDS ALL PREVIOUS DEFINITIONS OF AUDIOPHILE QUALITY ON EQUINOX

equinox_cover.JPG

CONGERS, NEW YORK – JANUARY 2011: Soundkeeper Recordings is a beautiful amalgamation of old and new. Veteran recording, mixing, and mastering engineer Barry Diament (Bob Marley, Pete Townshend, Led Zeppelin and on and on and on) founded the fledgling record label and expertly handles all of its technical tasks. On the one hand, Diament reaches back more than half a century, to a time when sound engineers viewed their art as the capturing of what were, first and foremost, live events. Diament records the artists on Soundkeeper Recordings’ roster in beautiful acoustic spaces using only a pair of microphones. Described as “recording without a net,” the musicians, with direction from producer Diament, determine every aspect of the “mix” as they play, with no hope for a technical save in the form of a punch-in or overdub. On the other hand, Diament relies more
