Khaliq Glover, a Grammy-winning recording engineer based in LosAngeles who also produces under the Khaliq-O-Vision title, has beenrelying on the quality of the Mobile I/O for numerous products,including those with Smokey Robinson, Jeffrey Osborne, Patti Labelleand, most recently, Herbie Hancock’s Future to Future andFuture to Future-Live albums.
“I think it’s one of the very best-sounding audio interfaces on themarket,” enthuses Khaliq. “As an engineer, I must have the very bestsonic tools available to handle any situation. The Mobile I/O is trulyan upper-echelon-class audio device capable of producing a pristinesignal that can stand side-by-side with any other audio formatavailable.”
Khaliq finds himself using various combinations of hardware andsoftware depending upon his clients’ needs, including Pro Tools, LogicAudio, Nuendo and Digital Performer. “Since the Mobile I/O can be usedwith almost any software, it maintains the audio quality of my portablerecordings that I need once I get back in the studio,” he said. Havingpassed a variety of audio signals through both Mobile I/O and ProTools, said Khaliq, “I really found the best usage with both LogicAudio and Pro Tools hardware. I noticed a richness and a round, fat andwarm sound that I preferred when running virtual instruments throughit. But I must say that, depending on the source material, many times Ipreferred the sound of the Mobile I/O.
“I love taking it around on my Powerbook to do quick and dirty (butnot sonically!) recording,” he continued. “You don’t hear a bunch ofnoise and artifacts in your audio after you record with it.”
