Following his fourth studio album release in September, R&B sensation Trey Songz has teamed up with Usher for the international OMG Tour, utilizing AKG microphones for lead vocals and his bandâ€™s lead guitar and percussion. With a 40-minute set each of the 58 nights of the tour, Songzâ€™s relies on top-quality technology to deliver memorable performances to hundreds of thousands of fans in the worldâ€™s most famous venues.
Trey Songzâ€™s performances are highlighted with an AKG D 7 mic with a D 7 Reference Dynamic Capsule for lead vocals. The lead guitarist is heard through an AKG C 214, while the drummer snaps C 519â€™s to his set. The mic system is networked through the AKG WMS 4500 Wireless System.
â€œThe AKG line sounds great and are some of the best vocal mics Iâ€™ve heard in the industry,â€? stated Bryon â€œHot Dogâ€? Tate, front of house engineer for
Trey Songz. â€œThe wireless vocal D 7 is extremely responsive in the mid range and the 214 give us a more compact and easy-to-use piece for the guitar.â€?
Utilizing the WMS 4500 with the AKG microphones gives Tate multiple features that are essential to the success of a live show. With an easy-to-access-and-view monitoring system, auto frequency synchronization, environment scans and pilot tone status data transmission, ensuring the vocals and instrumentation are completely in-line during the performance is a much simpler task for Tate.
â€œIâ€™ve had a long-standing relationship with AKG through many well-known artists and the mics continue to exceed my expectations,â€? continued Tate.
