Who: Kenny Balys
What: Studio Owner
Where: Reykjavik, Iceland
Gear: 2 8MX2 Mixer/Mic Preamps

From the Front:

Kenny Balys produces electronic music from his studios in Iceland and Canada, while spending much of his time working on projects in Reykjavik.

"I use the 8MX2's for the crisp tone colorations they give to whatever I pass through them. The hard limiters can be very musical, so I sometimes drive them aggressively to get this shimmering brick wall effect on pads. I get that 'big console' sound in a very tight package. The universal power supply is great, too. Whether in the US or Europe, I am good to go.

"I really love the 8MX2. I see it as a vital piece of gear in my synth studio."
