An acoustic guitar, a loop pedal, and the unique voice of British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran – that’s everything you need to draw in the crowds. Or rather: almost everything. An audience of more than 10,000 fans is dying to hear every note, even if they aren’t in the front row, and the linear sound reinforcement systems LEO and LYON from Meyer Sound make it possible. They are accompanying Ed on his live concert tour – from Manchester to Paris, Berlin to Prague, and Sydney to Auckland.
MAYDAY has been a genuine electronic music institution since 1991, attracting tens of thousands of music fans who make it Germany’s biggest indoor rave. On the last weekend in April this year, it was that time again: more than 21,000 partygoers packed into Dortmund’s Westfalenhalle 1. The motto of MAYDAY 2014: Full Senses. Visitors were able to enjoy star DJs like Fedde le Grand, Paul van Dyk, Maguai, Sven Väth and Sander van Doorn with all their senses – not least thanks to a perfect technical set-up by Meyer Sound. Meyer Sound had already received an enthusiastic response to its brand new LYON loudspeaker system from visitors to Prolight + Sound 2014 at Messe Frankfurt - and they were able to show just how much their latest product has in its locker under live conditions just a few weeks later at MAYDAY Full Senses. “The sound was clean, clear, crisp, and had acres of headroom,” said Bernd Görgen, co-manager of Wiesbaden’s schokopro, the full-service-provider for sound, light, video and SFX which also made a noteworthy contribution to the event.
At Prolight + Sound Trade Fair in Frankfurt this year, there will be many interesting new products at Meyer Sound's stand. The public address system specialist will present its newest linear Loudspeaker System LYON. The self-powered sound system is the newest member of the LEO family. It is has an extremely light and compact case and is therefore very versatile.
“With the LEO system we can show that a system can stay linear on all frequencies and with very high levels. That offers a whole new listening experience for everything from the New York Philharmonic to Bassnectar,” says John Meyer, CEO and co-founder of Meyer Sound.
