It’s a Shure thing for Singaporean artists Alfred Sim and Tay Kewei


After a two-year hiatus, renowned Singaporean artists Alfred Sim and Tay Kewei were given the opportunity to perform RE: BIRTH, an inventive reimagining of the duo’s hits and new songs, in concert at the Sands Theatre, Marina Bay Sands. The celebrity couple insisted on performing with Shure Axient digital wireless and a PSM 1000 in-ear personal monitoring system.

Vocal clarity was ensured during the broadcast courtesy of the Axient digital handheld transmitters being paired with Shure KSM11 wireless vocal microphone capsules. “Over the years, we have performed with various other microphones,” commented Cross Ratio artist Tay Kewei. “This time around, we were excited to use the new Shure KSM11 wireless microphone with Axient Digital for this milestone concert. Our voices sounded really clear on stage, and people said we sounded even better live.”

Her partner Alfred Sim was equally praiseworthy. “The monitoring was very clear and the KSM11 really gave us a confidence boost on stage, so I felt my performance was more natural and smoother as a result.”

Coupled with KSM11, the Shure Axient Digital wireless microphone system played a key role in delivering outstanding sound throughout the night. Combining technologies of earlier analogue and digital wireless solutions, Axient Digital enabled the production team to create a scalable Dante-compatible wireless system for enhanced audio transparency and RF performance.

“A microphone can easily make or break the sound of a vocal,” explained audio engineer Mark Spencer. “For me, the KSM11 condenser wireless microphone is optimised to accurately capture the sound of a vocal. This allows the artists the freedom of expression.”

For production teams overseeing live concerts in Singapore, frequency interference and dropouts have often plagued performances. With advanced spectrum efficiency, together with interference and dropout resistance, the Axient Digital Wireless system is a major asset for local RF coordinators. “Axient offers more command and control with wide tuning receivers and transmitters to Wireless Workbench,” added Shure South Asia Ltd sales manager Jayme Quah. “Dramatically improving signal reception and increasing range, the PSM 1000 can deliver up to 39 channels in a single frequency band with the widest PSM tuning range, RF transmission and fewer dropouts than other system.”
