GREENSBORO, GEORGIA – JULY 2010: The Greensboro Downtown Development Authority recently joined forces with the Oconee Performing Arts Society and Linger Longer Communities to secure funding for a $2.5 million renovation of the historic Greensboro auditorium. Originally built in 1939 in the heart of the mid-sized rural Georgia town, the auditorium has been transformed into Festival Hall, a multi-purpose theater, education, and community center. Live performances at Festival Hall include classical music, musical comedy, plays, cabaret, country, bluegrass, jazz, gospel, and children’s music and performances. In a principled act of restraint amid a climate of “bigger is better,” dB Audio & Video (Gainesville, Georgia) systems advisor J. Frank Locklear delivered a fully-functioning, high-fidelity sound reinforcement system using just one Danley Sound Labs SH-100B combined full-range loudspeaker and subwoofer. more

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS: For some twenty years, composer, musician, and sound engineer Brando Triantafillou has been writing, performing, and recording music for advertisements, film, and rising stars in the music industry. His clients include Verizon, Adidas, Nike, McDonalds, Sony, and the U.S. Army, among many, many others. Triantafillou’s production company and well-appointed project studio in Chicago both fall under the oddly delicious name of Soundcake, where two recent additions have found a comfortable home. A new BOCK 195 large-diaphragm FET microphone jumped to the front line amid an enviable collection of other A-list condensers, and a new pair of ATC SCM20SL passive near-field monitors are revealing Triantafillou’s recordings and mixes with “brutal honesty,” leading to finished projects that translate anywhere and everywhere. more

HOPEWELL JUNCTION, NEW YORK: The proverb states that nothing succeeds like success, and prolific mix engineer Serban Ghenea is living proof of its truth. After some years sharpening his musical intuition as a player in the jazz, funk and R&B worlds, Ghenea discovered he had a natural aptitude for creating compelling mixes. Over fifteen years, he has developed that aptitude into a flawless genius that has the music industry’s A-list artists lined up at the door to work with him. In the last two years alone, Ghenea has mixed over twenty number one songs for artists such as Britney Spears, Miley Cyrus, and Kelly Clarkson. Metric Halo’s ChannelStrip plug-in is Ghenea’s go-to solution for all equalization and dynamics adjustments. And every mix that has left his studio in the last six years, chart-topping or otherwise, has benefitted from multiple instances of ChannelStrip. more

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM – JULY 2010: Under the banner, “Outstanding Music for Outstanding Causes,” and the leadership of Michael Alexander Young, the Charities Philharmonia gets together twice a year to deliver creative and energetic concerts. All proceeds from the events go to benefit worthwhile causes and organizations. In recent years, Andrew Levine has had the opportunity to record the concerts, which almost always take place at St. John’s, Smith Square, in central London, a building erected in 1728 in the English Baroque-style. Its acoustics are stunning, and Levine has captured impressive stereo and surround recordings with minimal setup times using a Metric Halo ULN-8 mic-pre & interface with a Metric Halo MIO virtual mixer. The most recent recording took place at the end of May, with the ensemble performing Rachmaninov’s Isle of the Dead and Mahler’s Symphony No. 5. more

METRIC HALO’S ULN-8 DELIVERS STUDIO SOUND FOR TV LOCATION SOUND MIXER GRAHAM GARDNER

NEW YORK, NEW YORK – JULY 2010: For nearly a decade, Graham Gardner has been dutifully recording the on-location and on-set sound for both reality-based and scripted television shows in and around New York City. The business is fast-paced, and success is frequently measured not by the captured nuance of a subtle reverb tail, but by the reliable capture of intelligible spoken word. In reality-based work especially, there is no tolerance for a sound mixer’s request to “do that again!” But unlike many of his colleagues, Gardner has not abandoned the simple satisfaction of a sound well-recorded and, somewhat surprisingly, his clients are noticing the difference. Apart from technique, Gardner delivers a superior product with Metric Halo’s FireWire ULN-8 audio interface, which provides studio-grade mic preamps and AD/DA conversion, along with the DSP muscle to process and mix with efficiency and sonority. more
