Yes! This is what I've been using on all my remotes for the past two or three years. Two of them! It's incredible. I've wanted to shout about it for awhile now. I even took one into Folsom Prison for a recording project in April. Talk about remote.
I'm going to wait patiently for the "Prism Orpheus vs. MH ULN-8" thread....
Well as someone who has used them both, the MH Software Interface is by far the easier to use. As for sound - dont think one is better than the other although there is a difference. However, the ULN8 has many more features than the Prism that make it more suitable for what I do. 8 Mics and 8 AES ins and outs are the main items and I haven’t even started to get into the DSP.
Looks cool however I already own a 2882 DSP + ULN-2, Crookwood Paintpot, AMEK Rupert Neve design mic pre-amp DMCL. They should have issued the ULN-8 5 years ago so I could have saved the money on spending on the other boxes.
Anyway I am very happy with the Metric Halo's boxes and suppose that the ULN-8 is a fine interface. I am not sure what my next buy will be, currently I am looking into a Nagra VI because I like the idea to work with a dedicated recorder instead of laptop and interface however I recently moved to Qatar to work so I had to make a decision what to carry on the airplane and I brought with me the ULN-2 and Macbook which worked perfect when I recorded the ASD Chamber Music in Doha Qatar, see pictures.
3999,- US Dollars if you are a Metric Halo Customer!!!
Are you kidding me!
I just placed my order today at Full Compass. I will have to cancel that ASAP! I bought my 2882 last year. Do I qualify for the discount? I am emailing Metric Halo as well. I will buy another mic if I get the discount. C'mon MH!
If you registered your 2882, you should have received a coupon. Get in touch with the office!
I'm new to all this and the local music place recommended I buy the ULN-8 and X-Desk for what I am trying to do.
Basically, I work with Electronic/World/Hip Hop music and currently run exclusively ITB.
I'm looking for a bigger/fuller sound and was led to believe that the best way to do so on a 10k max budget is the ULN-8 + X-Desk, but I really don't know what these guys do other then being a pre-amp and a summing mixer.
I think I am way over my head and don't want to waste the money. Also, I don't want to spend the money on the ULN-8 if there are better options for me.
Using: Logic 8 over Pro Tools (although currently using an Mbox)
What do you guys think? Can anyone school me here, should I just bounce my tracks and take them to a studio?
