MICHAEL ANGELO BATIO

Babyface Pro FS low latency for Live Guitar performance
Using the S-GEAR Guitar Amp Plugin

Pre-Recorded from MAB’s Studio – this will be a 1-hr recorded session where MAB takes us through his use of the Babyface Pro as an audio interface for guitar recording and performance. Discussions will include the benefits of the Babyface Pro FS and his own personal experience when he first started using the Babyface. MAB will also demonstrate the SGEAR amp simulation software and talk about his opinions about the sound of SGEAR. Throughout his presentation he will play two performances which will be impressive and very entertaining.

More about Michael Batio

Guitarist Michael Batio uses RME’s Babyface Pro audio interface to record guitar and vocals, not only because of the superb sound quality and easy-to-use functionality it offers, but also because the Babyface Pro allows for extremely low-latency, no matter how many tracks he’s recording over. “With latency, there’s a split second difference between what you actually play and what gets recorded,” Batio said. “Even in milliseconds, it can really screw up the performance being recorded. With the Babyface Pro, there is zero latency.”

The former lead guitarist of Los Angeles-based glam metal band Nitro, Batio has recorded upwards of a dozen albums over the course of his solo career. Setting him apart from most artists is his advanced knowledge of music theory, as well as his fretboard mastery, sweep picking techniques and showmanship — particularly with his ambidextrous double-neck guitar playing. Batio was voted the “No.1 Fastest Guitar Shredder of All Time” by Guitar One Magazine. So, he can’t afford even the slightest bit of latency when he’s tracking guitars. “I’ve used a lot of different interfaces,” he said, “and the Babyface Pro is the best one I’ve ever used.”

Now, recording out of his own studio, M.A.C.E. Music located in Northern Illinois, Batio has used the Babyface Pro to track both guitar and vocals because it lets him record as many tracks as he needs.

“One thing I enjoy about using the Babyface Pro is that you’re not limited as to how many tracks you can use,” he said. “I use a lot of tracks and could easily balloon up to 40-50 tracks on a given recording. When you start building tracks like that, even if your computer can handle it, if the interface can’t, you’re going to have problems. But the Babyface Pro can handle it.”

LARI BASILIO

Babyface Pro FS low latency for Live Guitar performances
Using the S-GEAR Guitar Amp Plugin

powered by Digigram Next Generation HQ Streaming

Pre-Recorded from Lari’s Studio – this will be a 1 recorded session where Lari takes us through her use of the Babyface Pro as an audio interface for guitar recording and performance. Discussions will include the benefits of the Babyface Pro FS and her own personal experience when she first started using the Babyface. Lari will also demonstrate the S-GEAR amp simulation software and talk about her opinions about the sound of S-GEAR. Throughout her presentation she will play excerpts of her music, which should be impressive and very entertaining.

We want to also try and do a live concert from Lari’s studio as well where there will be segments in between songs discussing the gear and tying in S-GEAR, Babyface, and low latency topics.

More about Lari Basilio

When it comes to navigating the music industry landscape in the Internet Age, guitarist Lari Basilio has been a pioneer in fusing instrumental music with video performance. Her 2015 LP, recorded live in Sao Paulo, Brazil, was released on both CD and DVD, and contains 10 tracks performed live, a mini-documentary on the making of the album, plus behind-the-scenes footage.

Her YouTube channel is full of performances, lessons and gear demonstrations, which have garnered a following in both South and North America. More recently, Basilio said she has been recording her following LP at Capitol Studios in Los Angeles, which was released in early 2019. She went on tour with the G4 Experience and took her Babyface Pro with her.

“The Babyface Pro is making my work easier in many ways,” Basilio said. “It’s a very portable interface, and I can bring it with me everywhere. When I’m on the road, my Babyface Pro is always with me, and it lets me record with the high quality that RME is known for. And, since I like to use some guitar plugins, the Babyface Pro offers me the best low-latency technology.”

With a new album on the way and more touring in 2019, Basilio trusts her Babyface Pro to serve as her go-to interface for recording guitar tracks, whether in the studio or on the road. And, in addition to versatility and RME’s superior sound quality, Basilio says the dual headphone outputs, offering TRS and mini-jack sockets in parallel — which have separate driver stages to perfectly match low and high impedance headphones — are a “special touch” by RME that help to make the Babyface Pro stand out to her.

Black Circle Radio

Top League Podcasting
with RME Gear

powered by Digigram Next Generation HQ Streaming

Black Circle Radio is an all-vinyl radio program that has been on-air for 11 years! All-Vinyl Since 2009!

Broadcast every Monday Night from 7:30-9:30pm EST on Muskegon 100.9 WFFR-LP. They like to consider their programming to be genre fluid, meaning that the music they spin is rooted in how they are feeling that day rather than focusing on any single style of music.

On June 29th of this year RME artists Dig Infinity as well as Synthax Director of Sales Derek Badala were special guests on the show.

Black Circle Radio takes the all-vinyl approach very seriously. Down to the point that they even cut their own records on a 1949 Rek-O-Kut record lathe! When you hear Dig Infinity funk the airwaves up during that show you are hearing the lathe cuts.

More about Janine
Janine is a super talented songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist.
She is also a self-sufficient artist who has created her own artwork and directed music videos. But, her greatest weapon: an ethereal and devastatingly beautiful voice

Born in New Zealand, Janine dedicated herself to music almost as soon as she could walk, recording herself singing her favorite tunes on a double cassette player at the age of five. At the age of fourteen, she began performing her original songs with a guitar at open mics, mostly held at bars she wasn’t technically allowed into.
In 2013 Janine released her first EP, “Dark Mind EP” which scored a sync on Love and Hiphop Atlanta and ended up going to the top of the R&B charts in the US and ended up getting her singed to Atlantic Records. She went on to release her second EP. “XXEP” which landed her the 2015 New Zealand Music R&B Album of the year. In 2018 she released her debut album “99.”
In 2019 Janine and Atlantic Records parted ways leading her to go back to her roots and what her fans loved the most as an Independent, DIY artist. Writing, producing, playing instruments, creating artwork and music videos Janine loves the whole creative process.

More about Adam Barber

Inspired at a young age by the film scores of “Chariots of Fire” and “Last of the Mohicans,” musician and 2019 RME NAMM booth artist Adam Barber took his dream to become a Hollywood film composer and made it a reality. After working with some of the biggest names in the business, including composers Hans Zimmer and Christopher Young, and with his RME MADIface XT by his side, Barber has racked in film composer and musician credits in many major motion pictures, including music programmer for “Ghost Rider” and “Spiderman 3” and composer for “Last Shift” and “London Fields.”

“I love the creative storytelling that film composing affords me in such an abstract way,” Barber says. “It’s not storytelling in the traditional sense, but instead in a much more multi-teared fashion. Film compositions support the narratives — whether it’s long or short — and that’s always been magical to me.”

Before Barber even breaks out his MADIface XT, he first reads the movie script to better understand the nuances of the story and then sits down with the film’s writer and director to discuss their vision for supporting the narrative musically.

“It’s great because it’s basically like sculpting something out of clay — you have the dialog there, and you can ask, ‘where do we want to take it?’ And you start molding it from there,” Barber explains, adding that he usually starts the creation process while the film is in primary shooting to insure he has enough time to create the perfect masterpiece. “The evolution never really stops. The film’s editor will usually get involved from there as you continue to produce this musical sculpture.”

From the occasional set visit to continued meetings with the writer and editor, Barber begins recording music immediately as well as contacting musicians when the score calls for a full orchestra.

“Whether it’s pencil and paper, or in the computer, I’ll start sculpting the sonic pallet after the first meeting,” he explains. “I might start with a few easy scenes — 30 seconds here, 30 seconds there. I’ll map out the project in a protagonist and antagonist timeline or emotional high and low points, then I’ll send those ideas back to the editor to share with the director. This is in addition to your typical spotting session — when you sit down with the director and possibly a few other people to discuss the musical journey of the film.”

An avid user of RME products since his days working alongside Hans Zimmer, Barber’s entire studio now revolves around an RME backbone — from his HDSPe RayDAT multi-channel PCIe interface to his much-loved Digiface Dante to RME’s proprietary mixing and routing software TotalMix.

But possibly Barber’s favorite piece of RME equipment is his MADIface XT which serves as his main interface. Whether it’s at his home studio or a dubbing stage, Barber reaches for his MADIface for its 394-channel count.

“I route everything into my MADIface thanks to its high channel count,” he explains. “From there, it goes into my main Mac where I do all my writing then the mix goes back up to the MADIface and gets shot into a Pro Tools rig. The Pro Tools session then goes to the engineer for mixing.”

Using a Dante network, Barber converts all of his analog gear using a Ferrofish A32 converter — RME’s fellow Synthax-distributed brand — which then get put into the MADIface XT which gets connected to Pro Tools over MADI.

“While there are only a few other options on the market that do what the MADIface does, there’s no solution that comes even close to it when it comes to portability,” Barber says. “It’s half-rack space size is really handy when I go the dub stage. I can just throw my MADIface and my laptop in a computer bag and go.”

In addition to its high channel count and portable size, Barber loves working on TotalMix’s flexible platform.

“I can’t do what I do without TotalMix,” Barber says. “The elegant concept I really like about TotalMix is I can have my Pro Tools playback machine coming into the MADIface and at the same time have my Logic machine going through the MADIface XT and with the push of a preset button, I can check and make sure my stemming is correct. I can go from the Pro Tools machine right back to the Logic machine and make sure what I’m hearing on the Logic machine is correct without physically changing computers. It’s a really elegant solution to a real-world studio problem — making sure what you created is getting put to tape.”

Barber used his MADIface XT on both of his most recent film compositions, including the 2018 horror film “Extremity” and 2018’s mystery black comedy/crime noir “London Fields.”

“My RME gear covers a ton of bases and helps me do what I do,” Barber says. “My studio won’t function without my MADIface XT.”

Adam will share how he uses RME products in his day-to-day process as well as guide listeners through his workflow on Thursday, Friday and Saturday of the show at 10:30 a.m.

JB ECKL

PRODUCING & PERFORMING WITH RME GEAR

powered by Digigram Next Generation HQ Streaming

JB Eckl is a Canadian songwriter, musician and producer that began his musical career as a blues/rock guitarist in a saloon in central Mexico at the age of 17. From there, his curiosity about diverse cultures and music led him to spend time in different parts of Latin America and the Carribbean until, in the early 1990s, he settled down in Los Angeles to make a name for himself. His early demo tapes landed him the job playing guitar for 70s funk legends WAR, with whom he toured heavily for a few years, describing the gig as a ‘master’s degree program in groove.’ Around this time his songwriting career began to bloom as well, with pop divas En Vogue and jazz guitar master Larry Carlton recording his songs.

More about JB Eckl
It was working with Carlos Santana that put the jewel in the crown of JB’s LA years. A longtime disciple of Carlos’ sound, JB considered Santana to be the first and greatest proponent of what is now called ‘world music’, having created a successful hybrid of true Afro-Cuban percussion and authentic rock & roll. First playing onstage with Santana during his tenure with WAR, JB soon found himself in close collaboration with the hero of his youth. Along with top latin pop producer KC Porter, JB worked on Carlos’ 1999 smash comeback album Supernatural, which re-established Carlos as a rock icon and went on to sell 25 million copies worldwide and win several Grammys, among them Album of the Year. For JB, the highlight of this relationship was the song ‘One of These Days’ from Santana’s 2002 Shaman album. The track, on which JB was lead vocalist, co-writer and co-producer along with Porter, was dedicated to African music luminary Fela Kuti and featured LA latin funk band Ozomatli. At Carlos’ invitation, JB performed ‘One of These Days’ along with Santana and Ozo at the Hollywood Bowl.

Since then, JB has searched for his own voice as an artist, leaving LA for the more grounding environs of Mexico, Vancouver Island and Portland, Oregon. He has remained active as a producer in every genre from folk-rock to flamenco, as well as composing the musical score for the South African feature film Cape of Good Hope in 2004 and co-producing the recording return of Lonnie Jordan, his mentor from the WAR days, on 2007’s War Stories. But now, having sat at the feet of masters and developed his personal vision in the studio, JB is sharing his most honest, adventurous and searching music with the world. Prepare to be unprepared.
