“ChannelStrip is my default EQ. It’s always right there, and it’s the first thing I think of... I can't live without it."

- Rick Carson, Mix Engineer, Record Producer
Make Believe Studios

 

OMAHA, NEBRASKA: “I have a goal: I want to help create a body of work in my lifetime, and I want at least one song to last in the public consciousness for 100 years!” So, says Rick Carson, engineer and visionary who got into recording at 14, realized it was his life’s passion, and graduated from Full Sail as the school’s youngest graduate. He was just 17 years old! After paying his dues in post-production and recording facilities in both Prague and Chicago, Carson did some disciplined market research and determined that the population of one million in greater Omaha, Nebraska had an abundance of bands and a dearth of studios to record them. Six years ago, he opened Make Believe Studios there. He has since poured “every cent, every second, every ounce of effort” in pursuit of his life’s dream and ultimate goal. In that time, he has engineered Grammy-nominated projects and has a client list that includes Robert Searight, Terrace Martin, Problem, Danny Warsnop, and The Ready Set, among many others.

Grammy-Nominated Engineer Chris Sclafani Plugs Into Metric Halo Print E-mail

alt

SAFETY HARBOR, FLORIDA: After less than a decade in the business, Chris Sclafani’s results-oriented, artist-centered approach has made him an in-demand recording and mix engineer. His client list includes Selena Gomez, The Weeknd, Gwen Stefani, Sean Paul, and Passion Pit, among many others. More recently, he has worked with Ed Sheeran on Divide, Ariana Grande on Cashmere Cat’s album 9, and Camila Cabello on the single, “Cryin’ in the Club.” After cutting great vocals, guitars, drums, and other instruments with Ed Sheeran (which earned an Album of the Year Grammy Award nomination in 2015 for X), Ed asked him to set up his home studio. Among many other things, Sclafani gave Sheeran a copy of Metric Halo’s legendary ChannelStrip plug-in, which has been Sclafani’s go-to for “literally everything involving vocals and most other things as well.”

Multi-Genre Songwriter and Producer (and Oftentimes De-Facto Engineer) David Garcia Gets the Job Done with Metric Halo ChannelStrip Plug-In Print E-mail

alt

NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE: With three Grammy Awards under his belt, David Garcia continues to challenge himself by stretching his songwriting and production craft into new genres. He won the ASCAP Christian Songwriter of the Year Award in 2015 and has worked extensively with Christian hip-hop act TobyMac, Christian pop act Britt Nicole, Christian indie rock act MercyMe, and Christian rapper NF. Garcia relocated from his native Florida to Nashville in 2009 and, in the spirit of that move, recently started working with country singer Kip Moore, who – despite the middle name “Christian” – is not an explicitly Christian act. Their single, “More Girls Like You,” is charting as of this writing and was co-written, produced, recorded, and mixed by Garcia. As always, Garcia relied on Metric Halo’s ChannelStrip plug-in to compress, limit, and equalize many tracks of the song.

Metric Halo Plug-Ins - The Creative Force for Australian Songwriter / Producer / Engineer, Callum Baker Print E-mail

alt

Prodigy Callum Baker got turned onto Metric Halo’s flagship plug-in, ChannelStrip, while he was working recently in Los Angeles. “Everyone was using it, and on top of that, I heard that Serban Ghenea and Dr. Luke were both big fans of Metric Halo,” he said. “Because I’m a huge fan of both of those guys, I grabbed the demo and fell in love. My favorite thing about the Metric Halo plug-ins is that they sound good, fast! When I’m producing, it’s important that I stay in a creative space and not get stuck down in getting things sounding perfect too early on. With the Metric Halo plug-ins I’m able to get everything sounding fantastic super quick.”

Metric Halo ULN-8 and SpectraFoo Used in Scientific Study: "Ferencz, C.-M. et al. "Oscillating Electric Field Measures the Rotation Rate in a Native Rotary Enzyme." Sci. Rep. 7, 45309; doi: 10.1038/srep45309 (2017). Print E-mail

SZEGED, HUNGARY - March 27, 2017: Metric Halo user and Hungarian Biophysical researcher, Dr. Tibor László Páli, M.Sc., C.Sc., Ph.D., D.Sc. (T.P.) mentions using Metric Halo ULN-8 and SpectraFoo for the digital signal processing and analysis in the recently published scientific article: Ferencz, C.-M. et al. Oscillating Electric Field Measures the Rotation Rate in a Native Rotary Enzyme. Sci. Rep. 7, 45309; doi: 10.1038/srep45309 (2017).

As Dr. Páli shared with the Metric Halo MIO Users Group, "Out of my ~100 scientific papers this high impact report is the first one, in which I mention using Metric Halo products in biophysical research. The paper is about exposing a protein to AC electric field with frequencies in the audio range." Dr. Páli continued, "In this paper MIOs and 'Foo had simple tasks, but more to come from my research group."

Metric Halo thanks Dr. Páli for mentioning Metric Halo in the scientific paper, and congratulates him and fellow researchers on the paper's recent publication in Nature.

Metric Halo Gear is The Voice for Singer, Instrumentalist, Songwriter, Engineer, and Producer Michelle Chamuel Print E-mail

alt

SAFETY HARBOR, FLORIDA – MARCH 2017: Michelle Chamuel is perhaps best known as the charismatic runner-up on season four of NBC’s The Voice, where her amazing performance of Taylor Swift’s “I Knew You Were Trouble,” earned high praise from Swift herself and chart position on the Billboard Hot 100! But Chamuel’s obvious talent for captivating audiences with her singing voice and relatable personality is really just one talent among many. She is a capable multi-instrumentalist, an impassioned songwriter, and a uniquely creative producer. Her production alias, The Reverb Junkie is an obvious tech-head nod to her love of manipulated sound. Since her early involvement in the band Ella Riot and her appearances on The Voice, Chamuel has released three pop-focused albums/EPs under her own name, Face the Fire, The Drift, and Feel It, and three experimentally-focused albums/EPs under The Reverb Junkie moniker, All I Want, EP 2, and I Am. Throughout, she has relied on her Metric Halo 2882 converter and Metric Halo ChannelStrip plug-in to faithfully capture and create her expansive universe of sounds.
