U2 Engineer & Producer Richard Rainey

High End Recording Setup Featuring 3 Racks of TUBE-TECH RM8 Modules

Richard Rainey is from Ireland, but recently based in London, where he”s working base is Metropolis Studios. Richard has done loads of work for U2. He won 3 Grammys for his work with the band, and he is the first to get credit on the new U2 Cd “No Line on the Horizon”, where he engineered most of the tracks.

This production with GRAND AVENUE was his second as producer for the band. The tracks has been mixed in Metropolis during June 2009 by Richard and David Bascombe.

Richard requested High End gear for the recording at Little Eden Studio, owned by Danish band Sabya
and TUBE-TECH supplied three RM8 Racks equipped with a variety of modules. Richard and GRAND AVENUE have been extremely pleased with the performance of the RM8 System.

“The tracks needed very little or no treatment at all in the mix. Especially the guitar tracks was very easy to fit into the mix. The RM modules really make a difference.”

More details about the recording setup, and a little ‘Low End Guitar’ tip from Richard.
