Prodigy Callum Baker got turned onto Metric Halo’s flagship plug-in, ChannelStrip, while he was working recently in Los Angeles. “Everyone was using it, and on top of that, I heard that Serban Ghenea and Dr. Luke were both big fans of Metric Halo,” he said. “Because I’m a huge fan of both of those guys, I grabbed the demo and fell in love. My favorite thing about the Metric Halo plug-ins is that they sound good, fast! When I’m producing, it’s important that I stay in a creative space and not get stuck down in getting things sounding perfect too early on. With the Metric Halo plug-ins I’m able to get everything sounding fantastic super quick.”Read More
SZEGED, HUNGARY - March 27, 2017: Metric Halo user and Hungarian Biophysical researcher, Dr. Tibor László Páli, M.Sc., C.Sc., Ph.D., D.Sc. (T.P.) mentions using Metric Halo ULN-8 and SpectraFoo for the digital signal processing and analysis in the recently published scientific article: Ferencz, C.-M. et al. Oscillating Electric Field Measures the Rotation Rate in a Native Rotary Enzyme. Sci. Rep. 7, 45309; doi: 10.1038/srep45309 (2017).
As Dr. Páli shared with the Metric Halo MIO Users Group, "Out of my ~100 scientific papers this high impact report is the first one, in which I mention using Metric Halo products in biophysical research. The paper is about exposing a protein to AC electric field with frequencies in the audio range." Dr. Páli continued, "In this paper MIOs and 'Foo had simple tasks, but more to come from my research group."
Metric Halo thanks Dr. Páli for mentioning Metric Halo in the scientific paper, and congratulates him and fellow researchers on the paper's recent publication in Nature.

SAFETY HARBOR, FLORIDA – MARCH 2017: Michelle Chamuel is perhaps best known as the charismatic runner-up on season four of NBC’s The Voice, where her amazing performance of Taylor Swift’s “I Knew You Were Trouble,” earned high praise from Swift herself and chart position on the Billboard Hot 100! But Chamuel’s obvious talent for captivating audiences with her singing voice and relatable personality is really just one talent among many. She is a capable multi-instrumentalist, an impassioned songwriter, and a uniquely creative producer. Her production alias, The Reverb Junkie is an obvious tech-head nod to her love of manipulated sound. Since her early involvement in the band Ella Riot and her appearances on The Voice, Chamuel has released three pop-focused albums/EPs under her own name, Face the Fire, The Drift, and Feel It, and three experimentally-focused albums/EPs under The Reverb Junkie moniker, All I Want, EP 2, and I Am. Throughout, she has relied on her Metric Halo 2882 converter and Metric Halo ChannelStrip plug-in to faithfully capture and create her expansive universe of sounds.Read More

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA – FEBRUARY 2017: Dropping his tone as one might in conversation with a co-conspirator, TV composer Jonathan Thomas Miller seemed to almost confess: “The speed of my delivery is crazy. I’m writing, recording, and mixing three to four pieces a day. I gotta crank it out!” But don’t get the wrong idea; he wasn’t complaining. Miller loves the challenge and constraints of his business, which he’s been building for nearly two decades.
After happily spending “forever” in school in his native Ohio and Michigan, Miller took the musical plunge in 2000 and moved to Los Angeles to serve as an assistant to Tom Hiel, composer for ABC’s The Practice, which gave him an inside view of the industry and plenty of practice (ha!) mixing. A sequence of happy accidents presented him with the opportunity to write the theme for Discovery Channel’s Big!, which led to extended gigs on shows like Flip That House (89 episodes), Verminators (26 episodes), Oddities (42 episodes), Wild Justice (31 episodes), 1000 Ways to Die (76 episodes), and Jay Leno’s Garage (16 episodes and counting), among many, many others. In total, Miller estimates that he has written 6,000-7,000 pieces!Read More
In this article, we’ll take a look at a standout performer: the Metric Halo Precision DeEsser. Of all the many de-esser plug-ins I’ve used over the years, Precision DeEsser has, by far, the most comprehensive and effective facilities for zeroing in on sibilance while retaining a vocal track’s presence and air.

SAFETY HARBOR, FLORIDA – JANUARY 2017: Before 2013, Rob Caggiano was perhaps best known as the guitarist for American heavy metal behemoth Anthrax, a position he resigned in 2013 on good terms to follow his passion and broaden his horizon musically. Although it wasn’t part of any kind of premeditated plan, Caggiano almost immediately joined the Danish heavy metal behemoth Volbeat and has remained with the band since, not only to shred their solos, but also to write solos and songs of his own with them. What’s not so well known is that Caggiano won both positions as a producer and engineer and that he continues to bring great music into the world in that capacity with his trusty – and extremely portable – Metric Halo ULN-8 interface. “It’s an entire studio in one rack space!” Caggiano said.Read More
Anatomy of a Grammy-Award Nominated Country Song
NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE: Chris Young and Cassadee Pope’s smash #1 hit duet “Think of You” was recently nominated for a 2017 Grammy Award in the Best Country Duo/Group Performance. The song soared to the top of the Billboard Country Airplay chart in May and earned a nomination for Musical Event of the Year at the 2016 Country Music Awards. Clearly, clever songwriting and heartfelt performances made the song the wonder that it is, but credit must also be given to famed mix engineer Billy Decker, whose efforts have earned him eleven number one songs and sales of over 25 million RIAA-certified albums. Like every song Decker mixes, Metric Halo plug-ins featured prominently in “Think of You” and allowed the artistry of the creation to shine to its fullest potential.Read More
