Missy Elliot Performs in Amsterdam with Ev and Midas

December 2nd, 2005

Hip Hop queen Missy Elliot delivered a stellar performance on the last night of her recent European tour on November 29th, in front of over 5500 fans at the sold-out Heineken Music Hall in Amsterdam.

One of the key challenges for the concert sound engineers was live reproduction of the dry, yet extremely powerful bass lines for which Missy Elliot’s CDs are known. The production firm, PIEEE Rental, led by Hans van der Wiel, solved the problem - ably assisted by a team from Electric Audio BV - with a diverse Electro-Voice sound system, a Midas Heritage console and Klark-Teknik processing.

As has been proved time and time again at high-end productions, the combination of EV’s XLC and X-Array components is an enormous advantage. In this case it allowed PIEEE Rental to implement a sound design that fitted the Heineken Music Hall like a glove.

Axel J.E. Nagtegaal, head of Electric Audio BV, commented: “The sound was magnificent - even in the furthest corners of the hall. You could physically feel the bass. PIEEE Rental were widely praised for their performance here - from the musicians, from the fans and even from the local media, with critics singling out the quality of the sound reinforcement for special mention in their reviews.“

The team from PIEEE Rental used the following components for the Missy Elliot show:

1 x Midas Heritage H1000 48 TP

4 x Klark Teknik DN 9848

8 x KT DN 360/370

25 x EV P 3000

6 x EV P 1200

24 x EV XLC 127+

12 x EV X-sub

4 x EV X-Array XF (side fills)

4 x EV X-Array XB (side fills)

12 x EV XW 12 floors
