New York, NY (December 7, 2012)—When it comes to providing fans with strong sound, Croatian pop singer Tajci regularly turns to the L1 Model II system with B1 Bass from Bose Professional Systems Division for her concerts.
Tajci, as she is known professionally, was a leading pop-music star in Croatia before the unrest in the region in the early 1990s. In 1992, she fled her homeland and took her talents to the U.S., where she has established herself as an inspirational artist with a national following. Her “I Do Believe!” tours host capacity crowds at churches across the country.
Typically performing at intimate church spaces to 1,000-seat auditoriums, the artist has been using a L1 sound system and T1 ToneMatch audio engine, a digital multichannel mixer specifically designed for use with all Bose L1 systems. She tours with three L1 Model II systems—each one a 24-speaker articulated line array that delivers 180-degree horizontal sound coverage – three B1 bass modules and three T1 mixers that feature over 100 proprietary ToneMatch presets for instruments and microphones and include Bose zEQ, storable scenes and effects.
Denny Bouchard, Tajci’s long-time musical director, arranger and co-producer, also plays keyboards on tour with her, and says the Bose L1 systems have made a difference. “As musicians, we have total control over our sound,” he says, noting that Tajci has one of the T1 controllers attached to her keyboard, allowing her to precisely control the level and effects on her vocals. “If we play a room that becomes less ‘live’ sounding as it fills up with people, she can add reverb to compensate, and she can do it in real time and exactly to her taste. And since the L1 Model II system performs so consistently from venue to venue, we’ve nearly eliminated formal soundchecks, which saves us a lot of time and effort.”
Perhaps the most heartfelt observations come from Tajci herself, who says the L1 Model II systems have done what no other sound system has ever come close to accomplishing. “Because we can play with speakers behind us, the audience is hearing what we’re hearing on stage, and because of the degree of control that the T1’s give us, that sound is like listening to the speakers in a recording studio,” she says. “It’s that clear. I also think it’s made me a better musician, because I can hear everything – my vocals, my keyboard – in ways that you never could before on stage in a live performance environment. I can hear every note. I can express more.”
