Metric Halo Gear for Double Grammy-Nominated Down Under Future-Soul Act, Hiatus Kaiyote Print E-mail

alt

MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA: In the remarkably short time that it has been a band, Hiatus Kaiyote has managed to create and record two critically-acclaimed and commercially-successful albums, each of which earned a Grammy nomination in the category “Best R&B Performance.” The band formed in 2011 in Melbourne, Australia and has ever since been producing path-breaking soul music infused with the ethos and attitude of indie rock. For their latest album, "Choose Your Weapon," the members of Hiatus Kaiyote relied heavily on their home studio and the Metric Halo 2882 mic-preamp/converter/interface that connected their heartfelt performances to the world of ones and zeros with warmth and personality worthy of such an intuitive band.

“The Metric Halo 2882 was a huge step up from our previous interface,” explained Paul Bender, bass player for Hiatus Kaiyote and resident of the house that contains their home studio. “We considered stepping our way into the world of truly pro interfaces, but the 2882 is affordable enough to make the leap in a single step. We love the Metric Halo sound – it’s real and solid, and the tracks we record with it always mix well.”

Montreal-Based Seoul Produces a Unified, Masterful Dream-Pop Debut with Metric Halo 2882 and ULN-2 Preamp/Converter/Interfaces Print E-mail

alt

MONTRÉAL, CANADA: Seoul is a dream-pop three-piece operating out of Montréal, and their debut album, I Become A Shade, has quickly become a fan and critic-favorite. The band formed when longtime musical collaborators Nigel Ward and Julian Flavin started working with Dexter Garcia on an as-yet unnamed writing and recording project. Flavin had stayed in Montréal to study at McGill University, and Ward met Garcia at the Berklee College of Music in Boston. The trio recorded and wrote on weekend trips to Montréal, and each member recorded parts and ideas on their own in their home studio setups (installed into whatever apartments they happened to be living in at the time).

“Julian and I were never the kinds of musicians who would write a complete song and then go to the studio to record it,” explained Ward. “To us, the recording process is an instrument and at that time, was an integral part of writing. When we started recording and writing with Dex, there was no firm plan what was to happen with the project… just the inspiration to keep working on it because it was coming together so well.”

Recognizing that creative magic was in the works, Ward purchased a Metric Halo 2882 preamp/converter/interface to put the recordings into the “pro-quality realm” and to give them the track count they needed for their occasional larger recording endeavors. Garcia opted for the two high-end preamps of the Metric Halo ULN-2 preamp/converter/interface. The units’ mobility would allow them to track wherever they were living or wherever they needed to go for a particular instrument or sound.

Five-Time Grammy-Winning Producer/Engineer/Songwriter, Devine Evans, Relies on Metric Halo ChannelStrip Plug-In for Every Session Print E-mail

alt

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Although still young and with more career ahead of him than behind him, prolific producer/engineer/songwriter and five-time Grammy-winner Devine Evans has seen and heard a lot. A long-time user of Metric Halo’s ChannelStrip plug-in, Evans entered the world of music as a musician and songwriter under the management of Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, a member the 1990s hip-hop and R&B group TLC (the best-selling American girl group of all time). He and his band were signed to Universal in the mid-1990s and were recording their debut (which, for better or for worse, never debuted due to lawyerly machinations inside Universal), when Evans made a connection that would happily alter the course of his career. An eight-year old with a stunning voice and an old soul served as go-between.

Metric Halo Gear Easily Delivers for Complicated Mix Sessions for Judas Priest's Latest Live Album, Battle Cry Live Print E-mail

alt

UNITED KINGDOM: Of course, Judas Priest is among the small cadre of bands that might constitute the “founding fathers of metal” – including their genre-defining 1980 British Steel and 1982 Screaming For Vengeance, the band has sold over 45 million albums. With only a few hiatuses, the band has continued to rock arenas for decades, and their 2014, critically-acclaimed Redeemer of Souls earned the band a spot on the Billboard Top 10 for the first time ever. Tireless touring throughout 2015 culminated in a performance to 85,000 frenzied fans at the Wacken Festival, which was beautifully captured on video and audio for subsequent release. Battle Cry Live jumped to #1 on the US Billboard DVD Music Chart and analogous charts in Canada, Sweden, and Finland, and made the top 10 in numerous other countries around the world.

Having worked with the band on the vast majority of Judas Priest’s signature albums –including British Steel, Screaming For Vengeance, and Defenders of the Faith, along with most of their earlier live albums – producer Tom Allom was called back to the chair for Battle Cry Live. Allom brought in mixer, Jack Ruston, the team relying on the Metric Halo LIO-8 interface, and MIO Console software to seamlessly flip between a wide variety of monitoring systems.
