Live musical performance has always been a challenge. Some artists that could produce a wonderful studio sound could never quite reproduce it on the road. Others who used simple arrangements, perhaps just a guitar and distinctive voice usually found it easier.
The audience has a role to play in live performances. There have been audiences over the years that often drowned out the sound with their screaming. You need only to look back at Elvis Presley, the Beatles and the Rolling Stones and more recently some of the ‘Boy Bands’ to realise the audience simply wanted to be in their presence; that is perhaps the main experience, not the quality of what they hear.
 
Listen to the quality
It may be wrong to generalise but a youthful audience is perhaps more prone to screaming. A broad audience is more likely to come to actually listen to the performance. The artists themselves often enhance their musical instruments by utilising modern technology that can add the sounds that have come from the studio. When a recording is produced it may be that one member actually played multiple instruments; it is not possible live.
The modern day tour involves a number of logistical problems. The sound systems and lights used to support the act need to be assembled, dismantled and transported from venue to venue. It is an expensive exercise and the production is now all important; the paying customer demands it and the reviews represent the best form of publicity to sell out future venues.
Technological help
There is now so much to help the musicians get that review; the receptor, software sampler by muse research, there is something to help everyone whether a vocalist, guitarist or drummer. The effects that can be reproduced in studio and on stage means that audiences can enjoy concerts where the artist does not need a host of musicians and even a full orchestra. The sound quality can be such that if you close your eyes you might think that they were there.
You may have questions and they will be welcome. You will be able to get all the information you need about the main players in this music sector by going online and asking search engines such as Google or Bing to provide you a list to look at in more detail. You will soon be able to see the innovators in the industry and they will be delighted to talk and demonstrate how they can help you.
There is far more than on offer than the things a computer can provide. You should be looking for technology that is specific to the music industry and which gets regular feedback from musicians that use it. That feedback is essential for research and development and even more advanced products in the future.
Studio and live performances remain an important part of a musician’s career. Without talent a musician has little chance, but today there is a little more support readily available. That support comes in the shape of sturdy quality equipment to improve the sound.
