As one of the most successful musicians in Latin America, Alejandro Sanz has built a name for himself as a dynamic and exciting performer; selling over 25 million albums worldwide and winning 17 total GRAMMYs; two of which are attributed to the U.S. Grammy's and the other 15 at the Latin Grammys. With his new project Paraiso Express on the verge of release, Sanz recently embarked on his worldwide “Paradise” tour, showcasing the anticipated album with a set of AKG equipment that included the DMS 700, an IVM 4 in-ear system and a variety of D7 and D5 microphones.
With such a wide variety of styles influencing his music, Sanz requires an audio system that is both versatile and dependable, which is why Spanish distributor Neotecnica supplied the tour with the AKG equipment. Each and every concert will be using 24 different DMS 700 channels for voices and instruments and will also use 16 channels of the IVM4 in ear-system. For vocals, the DMT 700 will be equipped with D7 and D5 handheld capsules that prove to be the best solution for adapting to Sanz' vocal style.
“After speaking with Alejandro's tour manager and getting the details of the music and the type of venues he would be playing, we knew that AKG would be the best solution,” said Perdo Medina, Neotecnica, Spain. “The DMS 700 is flexible enough to handle a wide array of channels, the IVM 4 is one of the most secure in-ear systems on the market, and the D7 and D5 are advanced enough to handle even the most complex audio transmissions.”
Sanz will begin this extensive 2010 world tour in the most important locations of Latin America, Spain and the U.S., presenting his new album ParaÃso Express and also showcasing some of his most important and emblematic songs.
