Tactile Monitoring System Uses Bone Conduction To Deliver Intense Bottom End

bone-conduction-soundPorter & 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.

  1. Since it’s a bench doesn’t that title constitute an awful pun? Perhaps X-LAX and Metamucil could get in on this.

  2. …. First of all, hell yea! Pump up the jams.

    And hopefully there’ll be a brown-note notch filter. — Switchable!

  3. And in other news thanks to Tactile Monitoring Systems invention of BC2 and BC Gigster Drum & Bass music is in the midst of a resurgence. Office workers from coast to coast are getting “onboard” so to speak.
    They are taking advantage of “bone conduction to deliver accurate, intense reproduction.”

  4. Odd how companies take ideas that have been around for decades and try to make them sound like new inventions. “Bass shakers”have been used for mobile and home theater since at least 1992. They don’t feel the same as a real sub.. And they’re prone to buzzing.

    There’s NO replacement for displacement.

    1. This is a rather ignorant comment, sir. If you actually read about the product and looked at the huge professional roster you would see that this is not simply a device that shakes when triggered….

      1. Um yes it is. I read their website and that seems to be exactly what it does. What is different?

        And professional roster – so what? I bet you buy special USB cables to keep your music real warm sounding too, right?

  5. Just to clarify: The P&D systems are not thumpers, shakers, kickers, vibrators etc. The transmit the full range of the sound signal to your inner ear. There is no actual mechanical thump. We use our own bespoke transducers in our seats.
