Composer Stefano Lentini Chooses The Purity of Metric Halo Converters and Plug-ins Print E-mail

alt

SAFETY HARBOR, FLORIDA: “For me, nothing is more exciting than working on music,” says composer and multi-instrumentalist Stefano Lentini. “It’s a privilege, a magical job. Composing, working with musicians, recording – it’s all exciting.” Based in his native Italy, Lentini is a composer for film and TV who is perhaps best known for his collaboration with Chinese director Wong Kar Wai on the Oscar-nominated feature The Grandmaster. His music for the film, Stabat Mater, plays a pivotal role, and Lentini – though an affable collaborator – is proud of having successfully handled every aspect of its production, from the composition and arranging to the recording and mixing. Lentini is also known for challenging himself with new genres and sounds to suit the feel of a particular film. “I don’t like music standards in soundtracks and I’m not interested in repeating genres,” he explained. “For every project, I seek a new dimension, a new musical universe.” His latest work is for Nicola Campiotti’s new documentary, Sarà Un Paese, which Lentini recorded and mixed using a pair of Metric Halo LIO-8 converters and a host of Metric Halo plug-ins.

The Electropop Band, Priory, Finds Metric Halo Gear Covers Studio and Live Perfectly Print E-mail

alt

PORTLAND, OREGON: “These days, I feel like the only way for a band to succeed is to be self-contained – the band has to be able to take care of everything for itself. The Metric Halo ULN-8 contains mic pre’s, converters, routing logic, and DSP, and it’s absolutely world-class. Anyone who is trying to set up a recording rig or a live rig from scratch knows that it can be an overwhelming task to sift through the tangle of possibilities. I say, ‘Bypass it all! You’ll find everything you need with zero-compromise quality in the Metric Halo ULN-8.’” So says producer/engineer/musician Brandon Rush, who, together with longtime friend Kyle Sears, fronts Priory, an up-and-coming band from Portland, Oregon that recently signed to Warner Bros.

Australian Dance Mix/Mastering Engineer Klaus Hill Relies on a Metric Halo 2882 Interface and Metric Halo Plug-ins Print E-mail

alt

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA: Klaus Hill is the go-to guy for mixing and mastering dance music in Australia. He’s been involved in the scene for over two decades, first as a producer and DJ on labels such as TCR, Mob, Bedrock Breaks, Distinctive, and his own Title Fight and 2S2 Recordings. He made the shift to mixing and mastering ten years ago and counts among his clients Felix Da Housecat, Yolander Be Cool, Ministry of Sound, Sony, Ubderjack'd, SCNDL, Dub Phizix, and countless others. But beyond his success – Hill has been involved in dozens of Australia’s ARIA Club #1s and Beatport Hits – the well-rounded engineer relishes the opportunity to work with sound every day. “I’m a studio geek,” he laughed. “I love finding the best hardware and the best plug-ins to make other people’s creativity shine! I’m grateful that I get to do this for a living. It’s a job I really love.”

When Hill needed a new interface several years ago, he spoke with the folks at Australia’s Audio Chocolate.

Sound Designer and Engineer Maurizio Argentieri Edits and Mixes the Imaginitive Trans-Opera Film "The Girl from Nagasaki" with Metric Halo Print E-mail

alt

SAFETY HARBOR, FLORIDA: After earning a degree in classical guitar and finding that the world does not value classical guitarists as it should, Maurizio Argentieri retooled his education and fueled his passion for sound on the other side of the microphone. He dove in just as the industry was lurching from its analog foundations to its digital future, and he secured a very educational three-year gig as the on-location sound mixer for a small documentary crew that filmed Greenpeace activities around the world. “From there, I dreamed of recording sound for movies,” he laughed. Twenty years later, it’s clear that his dream became a reality. Argentieri has recorded and mixed for directors such as Mario Monicelli, Marco Bellocchio, Bernardo Bertolucci, Giuseppe Bertolucci, Mel Gibson, Barry Levinson, Spike Lee, Woody Allen, Ridley Scott, and Michel Comte. Comte is the visionary behind The Girl From Nagasaki, and Argentieri used his Metric Halo ULN-8 to record and tweak almost every aspect of the trans-opera’s sound.
