Audiofusion Inspires Better Performances, Transforming Smartphones into In-Ear Monitors

Musicians are leaping into live streams as the touring world holds its breath. Yet a persistent problem has followed them into virtual performance and makeshift spaces: They still can’t hear themselves very well when they play or sing.

Monitoring has been a drag on great live performances for decades, especially for independent touring musicians who don’t have a team of monitoring engineers at their beck and call.
