LONDON, ENGLAND: Gareth Jones is well known for producing ground-breaking albums with ground-breaking artists, such as Depeche Mode, Wire, and Erasure, and he continues to work with their next generation heirs, such as Interpol, Grizzly Bear, and Mogwai. From the start, Jones has been a technological pioneer, blazing trails down which the masses later followed. Jones was an early adopter of digital recording technologies and is today considered one of the world’s foremost experts on the Logic Audio recording, mixing, and editing platform. Relatively recently in the context of his long career, Jones outfitted his studio – which is by necessity mobile – with a pair of Metric Halo FireWire interfaces, that provide him with sixteen studio-grade mic preamps, sixteen channels of AD and DA, powerful DSP processing, 80-bit master summing, and – taken together – the flexibility to do what needs to be done, whatever the circumstance.
RAPID CITY, SOUTH DAKOTA: In addition to providing a top-tier education to 2,300 students, the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, or “Mines” for short, provides the venue for the Rapid City Area Chamber of Commerce’s Legislative Crackerbarrel sessions. They allow the public to voice its concerns and ideas with the local governing bodies. The Crackerbarrel sessions and several of the Mines’ larger lecture classes take place in the main auditorium of the New Classroom Building. Built in the mid-1990s, the auditorium seats seven hundred in a pie-shaped, multi-tiered room that can be divided via an air-wall into two 350-seat rooms. After two failed attempts to supply the large room with an intelligible, easy-to-use sound reinforcement system, local A/V integrator Haggerty’s Audio Visual supplied the master stroke. The new system centers on Symetrix’ new Jupiter “zero learning curve” processor with a pair of Symetrix ARC-2 wall panel remotes that more
