Incubus guitarist’s start-up could bring better sound to concerts

We’ve come a long way when it comes to concert sound, but there are still gigs where the venue, the location of your seat, or the shortcomings of the sound system result in a lousy sonic experience for fans. Surely something can be done about this, right?

Incubus guitarist Mike Einziger and violinist (and Mike’s wife) Ann Marie Simpson-Einziger are the co-founders of Mixhalo, an app that aims to bring better audio to fans at concerts.

Here’s how it works. Mixhalo is an app that beams a perfect audio from the stage directly to your smartphone. The app also allows you to switch between the feeds from individual musicians. If you want to focus on just what the guitarist or the drummer? No problem. Just tune them in.

Mixhalo has been in the field for a couple of years now with both Metallica and Aerosmith both trying out the technology. Live Nation is also a partner in this beta testing.

A new round of funding has just been secured, so Mixhalo could be coming to a gig near you very soon. Learn more here.
