Spain - Broadcast live for the first time in history from Seville, Spain, the 24th Latin Grammys trusted the Shure Axient Digital Wireless System and Shure software to enable quality audio for the biggest night celebrating Latin culture, passion, and music.
Shure Axient Digital Wireless was selected for its robust and reliable signal quality. Sound company Fluge provided 60 channels of Shure Axient Digital Wireless and 32 channels of Shure PSM 1000 In-Ear Personal Monitoring System, delivering consistent RF coverage over the whole venue.
“Shure PSM 1000 continues to be a consistently reliable piece of a complex live show puzzle, which demands both high-quality audio and rock-solid RF,” said Michael Bové, monitor mixer for Latin Grammys 2023.
The technical team relied on Shure software, including Wireless Workbench (WWB) and WAVETOOL by Shure. Diogo Nunes Pereira, RF coordinator for the event was able to monitor multiple cases where WWB operated various systems simultaneously.
The evening began with a performance of Rosalia singing a special version of the popular Se Nos Rompió el Amor, which received a standing ovation from the audience. Rosalia relied on a Shure KSM9HS capsule, joined by a group of palmeros and guitars who were supported by 13 Shure AD1 bodypack transmitters.
Alex Guessard, (FOH) music mixer said: “Within the rich and lively panorama of Latin Grammys performances, Shure Axient Digital seamlessly blends precision and passion. My focus was particularly captivated by the KSM9HS’s ability to perfectly capture the essence of Rosalia’s dynamically powerful opening number.”
Other artists who relied on Shure included Ozuna, with a Nickel KSM11 Wireless Cardioid capsule, offering transparent and natural sound, during his performance with David Guetta. Alejandro Sanz with a KSM8 Dualdyne Cardioid Dynamic capsule, sang his famous Corazón Partío and Feid used a custom green AD2 handheld wireless transmitter with a KSM9HS capsule.
Shure’s SM58 vocal microphone was present too: Juanes and his chorus, Hi Flow, Carin Leon, and Pablo Alborán trusted microphone onstage. Sebastián Yatra added a gold ADX2 handheld transmitter to this famed capsule.
Shure was present on the ground to support the technical team, joined by Luis López, audio specialist from Earpro&EES (Shure’s Spanish distributor). “It was an honour to work with the incredibly talented sound engineers and artists during the Latin Grammys 2023.
“By providing the most advanced software and technical gear, they can ensure unforgettable experiences. They used our equipment to its fullest potential, creating magical moments onstage without any audio issues that could shadow them,” said Javier Ocampo, senior manager, market development, at Shure.
