10EaZy – about the company

WHO ARE WE?

We are a small company located just outside of Copenhagen, Denmark.

The company was founded in 2005 by Jacob Navne-van Vliet. Based on his extensive touring schedule as both FOH and Monitor engineer in numerous countries, he realized that something was missing. On every tour, there were always at least one or two shows that was really dismal due to arguments with local authorities about actual sound level played at OR due to limits imposed that made no sense when trying to entertain a large audience.

“THE LIMIT IS WHEN I SAY TO YOU IT IS TOO LOUD!..” REALLY??

A tool bridging the two very different worlds of noise regulation and sound reinforcement was needed. The tool should be really simple to use, as too often discussions in the middle of a show came up just because of lack of understanding sound level metrics and how to interpret them. At the same time, it would need to comply with international standards, to not be considered a toy by authorities. Last but not least, the system should help the person at the master fader to achieve a dynamic and engaging show for the audience, while staying within limits.

AND SO 10EAZY WAS INTRODUCED TO THE MARKET.

In the early years we signed on large and important supporters like the Roskilde Festival and key venues in Europe, but the idea of proactively monitoring sound levels was new to the world and required long talks and presenting our vision.

This has changed dramatically over the past years.

10EAZY TODAY

Today 10EaZy is much more than just making sure the police do not shut down your party.

10EaZy is about quality control. Ensuring that every night hits a comfortable level for everyone. That your audience had a great night and want to come back to your venue or the next time you are in town.

We are not here to tell you how loud you can be, but we are here to make you aware of how loud you are.

Thru that awareness, 10EaZy usually manage to reduce the level between 2 to 3 dB.

This is done without loss of fidelity, show dynamic or “artistic freedom” but simply by making engineers and DJ’s aware of their actions.

A 3 dB reduction equals half the amount of sound energy presented to your ear and the surrounding neighborhood!
