Edmeston, NY (January 3, 2011)–Phil Greiss recently added a Monitor ST to his set-up of two Dangerous Music 2-Bus LT analog summing units.
Greiss mixed “Hold My Hand” by Sean Paul with Zaho, which has racked up over 2.3 million views for its online video. Greiss’s Down Lo production company also released “DIMA” by Zaho, an Algerian-Canadian R&B singer living in Montreal, Quebec, where Greiss has his studio. The song “C’est Chelou” from “DIMA” reached number 2 in the French charts and the album became a best seller for EMI.
Greiss says, “The entire Zaho project was done with the Dangerous 2-Bus LT–we’re talking many singles from the album, totaling about 30 million views for the videos on the web in all. I love plug-ins, and I love the sound and feel of analog. I’ve never been very good at compromising, and fortunately Dangerous Music gave me the tools so I don’t have to!”
Describing the use of the Dangerous 2-Bus LT, Greiss says, “There is a definite soundstage that is established by using the 2-Bus LT. You get that same sense of space when working on large format mixing boards. You just don’t get that feel with numbers and processors mixing In-the-Box–it’s just something else. I don’t think there’s a word for it; you just have to listen to truly hear it.”
He also uses the Dangerous Monitor ST to control speaker volume and switching between his Focal Twin6 and Yamaha NS-10s, “The Monitor ST is an amazing monitor section. I am able to work at many different volumes, especially lower volumes, for long periods of time. It’s very clear. Even at lower levels I can definitely hear that I’m working on the same mix: the same as if it was a bit louder, or really loud. The Monitor ST has been really helpful for making accurate decisions at all stages of the recording and mixing process.”
