In this video, engineer and producer Todd Whitelock reveals how using high quality D-to-A converters made all the difference in his live recording of bassist Christian McBride’s Trio, garnering McBride a Grammy Award for Best Improvised Jazz Solo—the first time a bass player has been chosen in this prestigious category.

Whitelock used the Dangerous Music CONVERT-8, eight channel D-to-A to monitor and mix the “Live at the Village Vanguard” album, even delivering the CONVERT-8 along with stereo stems to use with the mastering engineer’s Dangerous 2-BUS analog summing mixer for mastering, instead of a conventional stereo mixed file.
