Singapore, 09 January 2017— Audio-Technica is proud to have supplied 18 channels of UHF wireless system, 8 channels of 2.4GHz digital wireless system and on-site technical support for the first-ever musical adapted from a Xin Yao television series, Crescendo. The musical was staged at Kallang Theatre from 16 – 18 December 2016.

 

Supported by National Arts Council and brought to you by Shining Entertainment Investment, Ocean Butterfly Music and WaWa Pictures, Crescendo the Musical was adapted from the popular Xin Yao television drama series, Crescendo, which tells the story of a few Xin Yao enthusiasts who had to endure years of hard toil and sacrifices in pursuit of their musical dreams.

 

The musical featured more than 20 Xin Yao Classics and was performed by Singapore’s leading artistes Shane Pow (Beam Artists and Top 10 Most Popular Male Artiste Winner 2015/2016), Daren Tan (Project Superstar Season 2 winner), Brian Ng (The Changing Point Productions artiste), Bonnie Loo (Mediacorp artiste), Youyi (Mediacorp artiste) and Boon Hui Lu (local singer-songwriter).

 

For this production, Audio-Technica proposed to deploy a mixture of UHF and 2.4 digital wireless systems. The UHF wireless system was used mainly by the cast  for their vocals while the 2.4GHz system for the instruments to ensure that the production is interference free. 

 

         

Audio-Technica 3000 Series Receivers and System 10 PRO Receivers all setup and ready for the show.

 

“After a RF Scan on site, we realized that the venue faces UHF interferences from Digital TV Signals, overseas UHF Radio Signals and Stray signals from other UHF wireless system due to the proximity to Indoor Stadium and National Stadium. The venue also has an LED Display Wall, which also affected the UHF spectrum. Therefore, we decided to split the wireless requirements by allowing the cast to use our 3000 series and the musical instruments to be hook up with our System 10 2.4Ghz digital wireless system.” said Eugene Guo, Technical Support Engineer of Audio-Technica (S.E.A.).

Sound Designer, Jing Ng, was pleased with this decision “The wireless belt-pack was only 62 grams without batteries and the BP892cw-TH was only 6 grams in weight and have a diameter of 2.6mm. The cast didn’t feel that they have a microphone on them and were able to perform better. The microphone could also take the high SPL without cracking and is sensitive enough to pick up the nuances of the emotions needed. The ATW-T1006EX, wireless boundary microphone, worked brilliantly as a Carjon Microphone, picking up the lows and highs of the Carjon playing perfectly. The Audio-Technica Team was also able to resolve the RF issues encountered at the venue due to the huge LED Wall and other RF users in the vicinity”
