Shure Axient™ Digital Brings Quality, World-Class Sound to Student-Organized Rock Central Concert in Singapore
Singapore, 3rd October, 2022 - Rock Central 2022, an annual rock concert conceptualised and organised by the Audio Visual Production Management (AVPM) Club, a CCA in ITE College Central specialising in Audio Visual Productions, provides a unique learning opportunity for local students to garner hands-on exposure to what goes on behind the scenes in the Entertainment and Event Management industry.
Held at ITE College Central grounds and live streamed on social media, AVPM Rock Central 2022 relied on Shure Axient™ Digital Wireless System and Microphones to deliver clear and reliable audio for concert goers and those watching at home via streaming. Professional audio support was provided by Shure authorised distributor, Electronics & Engineering Pte Ltd. With nine bands taking the helm on stage, it was critical to have an audio system that was robust and resilient enough to handle their demands.
Haizan Salam, Technical Officer is the founder and organiser for the event and was very pleased with the outcome. The crew was impressed with the simplicity and ease of use that Axient Digital provided. The system helped streamline set up and Wireless Workbench® 6 allowed the production team to monitor and manage every facet of their gear from a laptop.
“With Axient Digital, RF scanning is a breeze given the wide range of frequencies available for use. ITE Central inhouse venues use the same system with wider and more quantities and there are no frequencies clashes,” said Djasman Hussian, AVPM Sound I/C and Mentor for Staging and Sound.
“With the option of having digital and analogue gain, we chose the option of digital gain and analogue gain as a backup,” continued Djasman Hussain. ”The best part is there is so much output gain on the Axient systems that the signal to noise ratio is incredible, enabling FOH mix to work with so much ease. Equipped with 2 Active Directional Antenna, there are no drop outs or blind spots on stage. When the emcees go off stage, we were expecting signal drops, but nothing happened!”
The concert series included performances from artists who depend on Shure Axient Digital SM58 and Beta 58A handheld microphones. The flawless audio quality is a true testament to Axient Digital’s ability to deliver clear and high-quality audio in the most difficult RF environments. At one point in a performance, an operatic singer performed with a Beta 58 mic capsule that beautifully captured her voice amidst the sound of many distorted guitars being play simultaneously on stage.
“Axient Digital was easy to setup and use. We had no lost connection problems during the show,” said Puteri Anggraenie, Sound Department Student-in-charge at Rock Central 2022. “Overall, it’s a very good system to use.”
