New York, NY (August 30, 2011)--Ariel Borujow, chief recording and mix engineer at New York City's Stadium Red studios, recently used Metric Halo's ChannelStrip plug-in on mixes for Chiddy Bang, Saigon, and FNA, among others.
In a nutshell, Borujow finds that the sonic signature of the ChannelStrip plug-in aligns with the favorable qualities he hears in hardware EQ and dynamics. "For example, I can crank the high end on ChannelStrip, and it sound great!"
"It's mostly been drums and vocals," he said. "I love the fact that Metric Halo provided a button that toggles the order of the processes; either the EQ first or the dynamics first. There's no right way or wrong way to do it, so you really have to listen. With other plug-ins, you have to drag and drop to change the order, which isn't very convenient for an A/B comparison."
