Metro Mobile

Founded in 1979, Metro Mobile Recording is a Chicago-based company that is nationally recognized for its achievements. The company specializes in recording for live broadcast, webcasts, albums and audio-for-video projects. The Metro Mobile Recording staff have recorded and broadcast complex shows on television networks like HBO, MTV, A&E, The Disney Channel, National Public Radio, PBS and Westwood One.

Metro Mobile Recording has also recorded music projects for Warner Bros., MCA, Epic, Atlantic, Geffen, Polygram, Island, A&M, Savoy/Malaco, Reprise, Sire and Alligator. In addition to six RIAA-Certified Gold and six RIAA-Certified Platinum recordings, Metro Mobile has contributed to another 28 Grammy-nominated recordings. They include Back On The Bus Y'all (Indigo Girls), Audience with the Queen (Koko Taylor), The Real Deal Live (Buddy Guy), Pages of Life: Chapters 1 & 2 (Fred Hammond & Radical For Christ) and Live In Chicago (Kurt Elling).

The Metro Mobile Recording staff possess considerable experience in interfacing with other audio and video systems on location, to facilitate major recording and broadcast events. Along with their two state-of-the-art, 48-track audio recording trucks, the company also operates two 48-track flight case rigs. An operation like Metro Mobile Recording depends on first-rate equipment. That's why founder Timothy Powell incorporates an array of products by PreSonus.

Timothy said, "We have 12 PreSonus DigiMax LTs and 4 Eurekas that play an integral role in our company. The DigiMax LTs have been used to record many concerts as part of our flight case systems. In fact, the units are on Tom Joyner's Fantastic Voyage cruise ship right now, recording Chaka Khan, Eddie & Gerald Levert, The Gap Band, Morris Day & The Time, Keith Sweat and Brian McKnight. We have also used them on the PBS Sound Stage HD series, as well as many other CD, video, film and broadcast projects."
