I used 3x LIO8 in a 96K recording/mixing setup running off a mac laptop. It's all built around Metric Halo's brilliant routing which eliminated a ridiculous amount of cabling.
He takes a moment to share this experience with the MIO Users Group:
“Here’s a repost from the gearslutz 3d thread <https://www.gearslutz.com/board/showpost.php?p=13973675&postcount=1547> showing a fairly complicated studio setup using Metric Halo. Might be useful to people here; all kinds of crazy routing happening.

SAFETY HARBOR, FLORIDA – MARCH 2019: “I really like the idea of not throwing gear away!” So says Dan Roe, who, for the past fifteen years, has served as pre-production programmer, playback engineer, and keyboard tech for the massive regional and international tours of Madonna, Peter Gabriel, Depeche Mode, Rhianna, Adele and many more. Roe studied at the London collage of music, and his solid work ethic and aptitude earned him an entry-level gig at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios. As the studio assistant, Roe was offered the chance to be the drum tech on a Peter Gabriel tour. He jumped at the chance and a steady diet of high-profile work on the aforementioned tours began.
“Around the time that I started doing the live work, I got a Metric Halo 2882 interface to record in-tour pre-production and for tracking in my home studio,” Roe explained. “There is a huge amount of recording to be done when preparing backing tracks on a Madonna tour, the show is built from the ground up, I love the reliability of my Metric Halo 2882; it’s a real workhorse, day in and day out… with a high-end result.”Read More
NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE: David Kalmusky is a multi-platinum, award-winning producer, engineer and musician who has worked with Journey, Keith Urban, Shawn Mendes, Vince Gill, Justin Bieber, John Oates, and countless others. Together with long-time collaborator, Journey keyboardist, Jonathan Cain, Kalmusky & Cain built a private production studio in Nashville called Addiction Sound Studios. Designed by Chris Huston (The Who, Led Zeppelin, War) to zero-compromise standards, Addiction Sound Studio has a flexible layout, otherworldly acoustics, and all of the best instruments and recording gear available to mortal humans. “We keep everything miked up and ready to create,” Kalmusky said. “You can wander around the building at any phase in a project and keep working.”
In terms of gear, Kalmusky likens the studio to “a Noah’s Arc of recording equipment,” although he’s happy to look forward to future technologies as well as to preserve past classics. “For example, I’ve got a refurbished record cutter from 1938 sitting right next to an iPad that’s running early-alpha-stage software that won’t be commercially available until 2020,” he said. “I’m not an analog snob and I’m not a technology snob; I just love that at this point we can use everything in the history of recorded music and move forward. That said, we did have to restrict our gear list to only those pieces – both hardware and software – that we really love to hear; the things that sound incredible. There’s no time to mess around with things that don’t deliver.” Metric Halo Production Bundle plug-ins, including the flagship Metric Halo ChannelStrip, were obvious keepers.Read More
