Wilsonville, OR (January 4, 2010)–Audix has expanded its international artist endorsee roster by adding Argentine rock artist, Charly Garcia.
Garcia recently kicked off a sold-out Latin American tour in Peru in front of 15,000 people who gathered at the Esplanade of Monumental Stadium in Lima; the tour then moved on to the Movistar Arena in Santiago, Chile.
“Meeting the demands of such an experienced artist was a big challenge,” states Marcelo Telefanko, Garcia’s stage monitors engineer. After Telefanko brought in several types of dynamic microphones to rehearsals, Garcia decided that the OM5 was the right vocal mic for himself as well as backing vocalist, Hilda Lizarazu. “We have also found some interesting and unconventional uses for the D6 (low toms) and Micro D (snare bottom),” Telefanko explains. “The SCX25A for overheads are stellar!”
Front-of-house engineer Fabian Giordano adds, “We are very pleased with the performance of Audix mics for the entire stage during this exciting tour.”
