Watch the interviews with Metallica’s dual monitoring team, Bob Cowan and Adam Correia, as they share the lessons they have learned from mixing the band.

They cover everything from Metallica’s stage volume, the utmost importance of consistency, earning and maintaining the artists’ trust, and how they meet the high expectations from the band, front of house engineer Big Mick Hughes, and fans.

Metallica has recently added 76 Meyer Sound MJF-210 stage monitors to its touring inventory. Looking for a new solution to meet a series of on-stage reinforcement requirements, including weight, footprint, power, and clarity, the Metallica team turned to Meyer Sound.

The team, including show director Dan Braun, as well as Cowan and Correia, subsequently took part in the beta product testing during the Asian leg of the band’s tour. Find out more here.
