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

API 1608 GIVES LEGENDARY COUNTRY PRODUCER PAUL WORLEY HIS ANALOG “GOOSH”

NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE: Paul Worley has enjoyed a storybook career. Starting out as the proverbial studio gofer, making coffee, sweeping debris, and hoping for a big break, Worley advanced in small measure by serendipity and, in large measure, by his obvious talents, both musical and social. He went on to become a session guitarist, a vice president at Sony BMG, chief creative officer at Warner Bros. Records, and, perhaps most famously, the coveted producer of several legendary country music albums. Indeed, Worley has worked with Big & Rich, Lady Antebellum, and Martina McBride, and has earned two Grammys for his production on the Dixie Chicks’ Wide Open Spaces and Fly. more

GODFATHER OF HOUSE MUSIC MARSHALL JEFFERSON SPINS ON A METRIC HALO ULN-8

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS: Marshall Jefferson is an epic figure in the house music movement, having helped found the genre in Chicago in the mid-1980s. In fact, his “Move Your Body” is just as well known by its adopted title, “The House Music Anthem.” Other enduring hits include “7 Ways To Jack” and “Open Our Eyes.” Apart from his own work, Jefferson’s presence runs deep in the House, Acid House, and Deep House movements through his collaborations, productions and remixes. Now splitting his base between Chicago and the UK, Jefferson travels the world on a near-weekly basis for DJ engagements. He always brings (just) his laptop and his Metric Halo ULN-8 preamp/interface/DSP, which he uses both for the show and to make good on a backlog of remix requests back at the hotel. more
