REVIEW: Metric Halo ULN-8 "Feature-Packed Firewire Interface" by, Stuart Bruce - Future Music Magazine Print E-mail


"For a 1U rack mount unit the ULN-8 is about as fully featured as you can imagine for an eight channel interface," according to Stuart Bruce of Future Music Magazine.

"The fact that it's FireWire also means that with all that functionality your laptop can be a fully functioning studio just with a ULN-8, a pair of monitors and some cans."

"...although it's not the cheapest interface on the market, when you consider what you are getting for your money, and especially with that recent price drop [now $2,999 GBP / $5,995 US Dollar - VAT included], it can only be considered a bargain."

Country Mix Engineer Billy Decker Discovers Real Talent in Metric Halo Plug-ins Print E-mail


NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE: Mix engineer Billy Decker scored his first #1 single in 2006 with Rodney Atkins' "If You're Going Through Hell," which is among the first (if not the first) #1 country song to be mixed entirely in Pro Tools and bounced to disc. He recently celebrated his eighth #1 single with Parmalee's "Carolina." An in-demand engineer stationed in Nashville, Decker gracefully negotiates the happy demands of a 22-year marriage and two children by maintaining a rigorous work schedule. "I come in at 8:30 in the morning and leave by 5:30 or 6:00," he said. "I mix entirely in Pro Tools, where instant recall of everything allows me to juggle multiple projects at the same time."

UK Mix Engineer Michalis "MsM" Michael Opts For Metric Halo Plug-ins For Quick, Great-Sounding ITB Processing Print E-mail

Michalis “MsM” Michael is a UK-based mix engineer with a growing and eclectic list of credits that includes several Top-20 singles, a number-one single, notable work on Diddy's Last Train to Paris and going on to assist the chief engineer of the Grammy Award-winning J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League. His work while assisting necessitated travel, which motivated Michael to shift his workflow from reliance on hardware processing. These days, he mixes almost entirely in the box (ITB) and relies on Metric Halo plug-ins to deliver sonically-solid sounds with zero hassle. His recent work on Tom Prior's Bad Advice EP to be released later this summer, which was produced in part by former Arctic Monkeys bassist Andy Nicholson, exemplifies Michael’s new workflow.

Metric Halo Captures Modest Mouse Print E-mail


HOPEWELL JUNCTION, NEW YORK:  Iconic indie-rock band Modest Mouse gained its near-legendary status just outside of pop music’s burning spotlight with a series of convention-breaking albums and a rigorous touring schedule that exposed its music to new fans. Despite selling over three million albums to date, the band is still very much in control of its creative destiny, and Modest Mouse concerts have taken on a mystique that draws hundreds of thousands to arenas and festivals during every tour. The band’s production manager and FOH engineer Philip Harvey (The White Stripes, The Raconteurs) fights to balance the tortuous logistics of his first job with the aesthetic rewards of his second job. He counts on Metric Halo’s SpectraFoo audio analysis software to quickly dial in the right balance at soundcheck and to diagnose any real-time problems during the show. He utilizes a Metric Halo ULN-8 interface, integrated with a Soundcraft Vi6 console, both to provide live effects and to commit each night’s performance to a hard drive archive.
