Jay Ruston Finds Metric Halo Channelstrip In Time For Anthrax’ New Album, Worship Music Print E-mail

Jay Ruston 375

HOPEWELL JUNCTION, NEW YORK: Producer and engineer Jay Ruston has been recording and mixing tracks for artists such as The Donnas, Jars of Clay, Steel Panther, and Meatloaf for going on twenty years. He has watched the technology that is championed by the industry shift and evolve, sometimes for the better and sometimes for the worse. He hangs onto the better bits. For example, Ruston is an avid (ha!) user of Pro Tools, which he pairs with a Trident console for analog summing. Recently, while working with Anthrax on their forthcoming release, Worship Music, Ruston found Metric Halo’s ChannelStrip plug-in, which combines the classic frequency and dynamics tools found on the monster analog consoles of yore. Together with Anthrax producer and guitarist Rob Caggiano, Ruston recorded and mixed the album.

For Sneap, who also finds time to play guitar with Sabbat, the Nottingham, U.K.-based thrash metal band that he co-founded and reformed in 2006 after a fifteen-year hiatus, the one constant from project to project has been Metric Halo’s ChannelStrip plug-in.
