Keith McMillen Instruments K-MIX is being put to use on some big time stuff thanks to Dan The Automator. I’ve been a fan of Dan since the days of the Dr. Octagon (Kool Keith) album that he produced. Read more below.
Keith McMillen Instruments is happy to announce that hip-hop super-producer Dan the Automator made much usage of its K-MIX next-generation audio interface and programmable mixer on the song affectionately highlighting the closing credits for criminal thriller “Money Monster” currently fascinating cinema audiences around the world …
Known for producing the five-million-copy-selling namesake debut album by British ‘virtual team’ Gorillaz as well as an contribute to acts like DJ Shadow, Depeche Method, as well as Kasabian, along with records with rapper Del the Funky Homosapien as well as Canadian DJ/turntablist Kid Koala as hip-hop supergroup Deltron 3030, San Francisco-born Daniel Nakamura– better known to all as Dan the Automator– requires little in the method of intro.
For when it came to recording vocals for the song in question, Keith McMillen Instruments’ compact K-MIX — a rugged, eight-input/10-output audio interface and programmable mixer featuring two ultra-accurate, low-noise μPre™ preamps, and a precision opto-tactile control surface that was designed from scratch to command any DAW with an excellent level of control while providing super-clean audio going thru in an accessible, portable package allowing artists to focus on the all-important task of making music — audibly delivered. Dan the Automator sang its praises thusly:
“I tried using K-MIX for the first time while recording Del’s vocals for ‘What Makes The World Go ’Round (MONEY!)’. It plugged right into Pro Tools and just worked. I also used the onboard preamp with a Neumann TLM 170 and the results were nice and punchy.”
