Chicago, IL (October 22, 2014)—Chicago-based sound engineer Aaron Patkin joined Chance the Rapper in 2013, working with the artist as he grew from an Internet sensation to the headliner of the final night of this year’s Lollapalooza festival in Chicago.
Throught the rise of the artist's career, he has faithfully used Sensaphonics 2MAX earphones for monitoring. “When the in-ears arrived, it was my job to help them make the transition—just three days before the tour,” Patkin recalls. “Chance had never worn in-ears before and had no idea what to expect, or even what to ask for. It was a great opportunity for me to help him, getting him comfortable with in-ears and using them correctly, and it’s worked out great.”
“Chance and I both wear the 2MAX, which is ideal," he added, "but I’ve found that no matter what someone else is listening on, mixing through the 2MAX translates accurately. That's a great tool for a monitor engineer.”
