Khaliq Glover, a Grammy-winning recording engineer based in Los Angeles who also produces under the Khaliq-O-Vision title, has been relying on the quality of the Mobile I/O for numerous products, including those with Smokey Robinson, Jeffrey Osborne, Patti Labelle and, most recently, Herbie Hancock's Future to Future and Future to Future-Live albums.

"I think it's one of the very best-sounding audio interfaces on the market," enthuses Khaliq. "As an engineer, I must have the very best sonic tools available to handle any situation. The Mobile I/O is truly an upper-echelon-class audio device capable of producing a pristine signal that can stand side-by-side with any other audio format available."

Khaliq finds himself using various combinations of hardware and software depending upon his clients' needs, including Pro Tools, Logic Audio, Nuendo and Digital Performer. "Since the Mobile I/O can be used with almost any software, it maintains the audio quality of my portable recordings that I need once I get back in the studio," he said. Having passed a variety of audio signals through both Mobile I/O and Pro Tools, said Khaliq, "I really found the best usage with both Logic Audio and Pro Tools hardware. I noticed a richness and a round, fat and warm sound that I preferred when running virtual instruments through it. But I must say that, depending on the source material, many times I preferred the sound of the Mobile I/O.

"I love taking it around on my Powerbook to do quick and dirty (but not sonically!) recording," he continued. "You don't hear a bunch of noise and artifacts in your audio after you record with it."
