Shure ULX-D at Bee Gees Musical Tour 2015, Germany

Shure ULX-D digital wireless system ensures high-quality audio and flawless RF-transmission

The Bee Gees Musical  “Massachusetts” has been touring Germany since January 2015. With 50  dates in total and each show lasting at least 3 hours, crystal-clear  audio and no-worry RF-performance were the key requirements.

Reset Production was in charge of the tour, while all technical  equipment came from Groh-P.A. Due to its sound performance and the high  level of reliability, Shure ULX-D was the wireless microphone system of  choice. A total of 13 ULX-D digital wireless systems were in use during  the “Massachusetts” tour. Plus various wired Shure microphones including  Beta 52, Beta 57, Beta 58A, Beta 91A, SM91 and SM58.

The software is an enormous benefit when you have a tour of this  dimension. We have all parameters under control and can make necessary  adaptions remotely. Everything is very well-thought-out

The digital ULX-D wireless system delivers a high-class 24-bit/48kHz  audio signal ensuring the Bee Gees’ typical falsetto to be reproduced  perfectly.

Monitoring and control via Shure Wireless Workbench Software 6 was a  great help as the technical staff could remotely change the most  important parameters without having to touch the wireless components  physically.
