Paul Kavicky, owner/operator of Pater Street Audio Company (Columbus, Ohio), is working the FOH position for Threesixty Theater’s production of Peter Pan, which will run in four different cities for a total of 350 shows. In his home studio, he creates and records sound effects and voice-overs for theatrical work. New to his space are six Metric Halo FireWire interfaces with eight I/Os each: four 288s, an LIO-8 and a ULN-8.

When he travels with shows, Kavicky takes a 2882 with a 2d expansion card and +DSP capabilities. “Aside from a microphone and a computer, the expanded 2882 provides every other tool in my audio recording toolbox,” he says. “That lightens my load as I don’t have to travel with any ancillary gear—no outboard mic pre’s or compressors. I can do it all inside the Metric Halo box.”
