Metric Halo 2882 the right choice for Hiatus Kaivote
AUSTRALIA: Melbourne-based band Hiatus Kaivote has used the Metric Halo 2882 mic-interface, converter and preamp as part of the recording process for their latest album, Choose Your Weapon. A second unit was purchased specifically for their third full-length release, as the band used various studios at home in Australia and in the United States. Each track includes material recorded and engineered on the 2882.
‘The Metric Halo 2882 was a huge step up from our previous interface,’ commented Paul Bender, the bass player for Hiatus Kaivote. ‘We considered stepping into the world of truly pro interfaces, but the 2882 is affordable enough to make the leap in a single step. We love the Metric Halo sound – it’s real and solid, and the tracks we record always mix well.’
Metric Halo offers a software control system, allowing for customisable routing and processing via a mixer-like interface, which was also implemented by the band. ‘I love the MIO Console,’ added Mr Bender. ‘You can set it up a million ways, and that’s super useful. We’re able to give everyone customised headphone mixes and the software plugins, such as Metric Halo ChannelStrip and HaloVerb, make the headphone mixes sound great. We’re able to get a good vibe in the cans, which always helps to inspire great performances.’
