Porter & Davies let us know about their Tactile Monitoring Systems, which use bone conduction to deliver sound through your backside.
In-ear monitors sound great, but don’t deliver the physical sensation of big monitors. The P&D silent monitoring systems address that gap, using bone conduction to deliver accurate, intense reproduction.
According to the company, their P&D BC2 and BC Gigster systems let players hear and feel themselves and their fellow musicians like never before
Keyboardists can choose what instruments they want the system to monitor and the significant increase in tactile connection to the sound will enable them to experience better on-stage dynamics.
‘It’s not only just nice to play with and a welcome addition to the in ear sound, but it adds to the quality of your personal part within the music and therefore enhances the total band performance,” notes user Manu van Os, keyboardist for Racoon. “It gives me the push through the seat without the need for big monitors or wedges to move the air; It clears up the low-end, makes the bass tighter and much more defined. With those two things happening, your total mix gets deeper and wider.’
Details on the Tactile Monitoring Systems is available at the Porter & Davies site.
