“I do not plan on ever mixing another gig without my 64 Audio Ears,” – James Berry (Beyoncé, monitor engineer)
64 Audio was granted the opportunity to be a part of tonight’s All-Star Grammy Salute to Stevie Wonder: Songs in the Key of Life at which James Berry, monitor engineer for Beyoncé, was able to experience 64’s in-ear monitors and provide feedback from himself and his artist.
James has always been an advocate for providing his artists (Stevie Wonder, Beyoncé, Bruno Mars and Jennifer Hudson) what they want and need, all while protecting their hearing. “When I found 64 Audio, I found an in-ear monitor that is the perfect tool for all of my artists.”
When asked about his thoughts on hearing health this is what he had to say, “I have mixed for some big pop artists that like to listen to things on the louder side for sure, but with this technology I have been able to listen to mixes at high levels for long periods of time with very minimal ear fatigue after the show is over. Even after hours and hours of rehearsal time.”
In regard to fit, James states “64 Audio 3D-FIT Technology is undoubtedly a game-changer, ensuring the best seal and most comfortable fit in the industry. I can comfortably wear my 64s for hours. The 64 Audio team hit it out of the ballpark when it comes to fit along with sound.”
James concluded, “The A12 model gives a monitor engineer the ability to mix – whatever is needed for their gig, with a smooth low-end that does not bottom out, a detailed high-end and a great punchy mid-range.”
The Stevie Wonder: Songs In The Key Of Life will be airing in HDTV and 5.1 surround sound on CBS on Monday, Feb. 16, 2015, from 9-11 p.m. ET/PT. Click here for more information.
About 64 Audio
64 Audio was started by a sound engineer who, for more than a decade, has been working with musicians and production companies in the Northwest. Not long into his career he discovered the advantages of IEMs over traditional floor “wedges”. After trying out a few brands it was apparent that a better and a more affordable solution to in-ear monitoring was needed. Many months went into sourcing, designing and field-testing the products that are available today.
