Metric Halos Mobile I/O Captures Miss Universe

Chicago, IL (November 26, 2003)--For the last 10 years, freelance recording engineer Eric Rudd has been involved with a side project that has allowed him to escape the studio and visit Africa, Cyprus, Trinidad, Puerto Rico, Panama, and Hawaii. Last year, Rudd, a music coordinator for three of the Miss Universe Organization's annual pageant telecasts, discovered Metric Halo Mobile I/O, a digital recording, editing and mixing solution that allows him to transition seamlessly between the worlds of music recording and broadcast.

Chicago, IL (November 26, 2003)–For the last 10 years, freelance recording engineer Eric Rudd has been involved with a side project that has allowed him to escape the studio and visit Africa, Cyprus, Trinidad, Puerto Rico, Panama, and Hawaii. Last year, Rudd, a music coordinator for three of the Miss Universe Organization’s annual pageant telecasts, discovered Metric Halo Mobile I/O, a digital recording, editing and mixing solution that allows him to transition seamlessly between the worlds of music recording and broadcast.

“The Mobile I/O allows me to operate in a wide variety of situations that I wouldn’t be able to otherwise,” observes Rudd, who has acted as music coordinator for several other TV awards shows. Rudd first engineered the pre-recorded music for the Miss USA Pageant telecast in 1992 and is now music coordinator for The Miss Universe Pageant. The Miss Universe Organization, a partnership between Donald J. Trump and NBC, also produces the Miss Teen USA competition.

Explaining his broadcast rig, Rudd says, “I use my TiBook, the Mobile I/O and Ableton’s Live to do the playback for the telecast. The shows are ‘live’ so the music cannot be posted. I assign music cues to buttons on my keyboard, and off we go.”

Implementing Mobile I/O has allowed Rudd to streamline his setup at the pageants. “Because of the amount of music, music sources, and crossfades in the show, I was originally running two digicarts and two [360 Systems] Instant Replays on the show, along with DAT and CD,” he explains. “With the Mobile I/O I can now easily have four stereo music sources from within my laptop–and switch to a fully portable studio for other recording situations when needed.”
