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. For instance, he will be traveling with metal icons Rob Zombie and Slayer on a twelve-stop tour that mix festival PA systems with a hand-picked Adamson system for headlining shows. 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.

GAINESVILLE, GEORGIA – AUGUST 2011: Launched in 2005, Danley Sound Labs is the home of legendary acoustician and loudspeaker designer Tom Danley, whose innovative work has been used by NASA and the military, not to mention millions of sound enthusiasts the world over. Unlike conventional loudspeakers, Danley’s designs offer unparalleled arrayability, pattern control, phase coherence, and fidelity. With the advent of Danley’s large-format Jericho and Genesis horn technology, large sports facilities, both college and pro, are beginning to appreciate the distinct advantages of Danley’s unconventional technology. The Jericho and Genesis horns produce the massive SPLs and unique coverage required by sports facilities, but they do so without compromising phase coherence or fidelity.

Lambeau Field, home to the reigning NFL champion Green Bay Packers, recently benefitted from a $2.5 million sound system overhaul that centers on Danley Sound Labs technology. Sixteen Danley Genesis Horns, model GH-60, combine with nineteen Danley more

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
