KLANG:technologies visited Jeff Wayne’s The War of Worlds to talk with him and monitor engineer Becky Pell about the challenges in managing a full string orchestra and band with 168 tracks.
Jeff Wayne commented: “When I’m conducting, I’ve got a band on one side and a symphonic string orchestra on the other and with the KLANG system, the placement of those elements is very much as I’m seeing them, rather than just having a good general mix. The result is that it’s very much more alive – more 3D. I have a better balance in my head, so the sound quality is at a completely different level now than previously. I’d like to stay with the KLANG system whenever I’m performing with in-ear monitoring.”
