Adlib Audio Add First Outline Products To Inventory
Adlib Audio Add First Outline Products To Inventory Prolight+sound, Frankfurt – April 12th 2018 Liverpool-based Adlib Audio have invested in Outline’s extraordinary Newton device, the world’s most advanced multi-source audio processor Newton’s feature set offers significant operational advantages to anyone engaged in the management of sophisticated audio systems. Combining new ‘WFIR’ (patent pending) filter technology, multi-format audio signal routing, simultaneous multiple standard conversion and digital signal synchronisation in a single 1RU chassis, Newton represents the next generation of networked audio system control. Ian Nelson, Adlib’s Senior Engineer commented, “I heard some chatter about Newton on social media, then investigated further on the Outline website and subsequently contacted James Lawford at CUK.” “The Newton’s 18×16 matrix and its huge amount of I/O possibilities are the major factors that attracted us to the unit, but the ASRC and SRC on each matrix input is also a big advantage. This, coupled with the multiple levels of input redundancy, is something we had been searching for a long time.” “The unique thing about Newton is that we have struggled to find anything that can handle a relatively big matrix but operate simultaneously on multiple time domains, with automatic input redundancy fail over. There are […]
Capital Sound Hire Become First UK Customers For Outline Newton
Capital Sound Hire Become First UK Customers For Outline Newton London-based Capital Sound Hire have added yet further to their Outline inventory with the addition of the Italian company’s latest multi-role processor, the (patent pending) Newton. Officially launched at prolight+sound in Frankfurt recently, the extraordinary flexibility of Newton brings a new level of convenience and system integration possibilities to professional users throughout the audio industry. Capital’s Paul Timmins and Robin Conway talk about why they’ve invested in Newton and how they plan to use it: Paul Timmins: “We were introduced to the concept by the Outline team when we were buying into the Outline GTO C-12 system during late 2015 and early 2016. We took an immediate interest and, having then followed its development over the last two years, we are incredibly excited we have received our first production units.” Robin Conway: “My interest was immediately piqued during my first introduction to the unit and the concept, then our internal team and some external staff saw it during our Outline array training at SW19 Studios. The right people in the room were immediately interested, at which point I knew it was a product we needed to add to our inventory.” […]
Superfly And TAPFS – Outline’s Latest Design Shines On
Superfly And TAPFS – Outline’s Latest Design Shines On Probably the world’s premiere tribute act and certainly the best-known, The Australian Pink Floyd’s 2018 tour marks 30 years of celebrating the music of one of the most influential bands of all time. In those three decades TAPFS have sold in excess of four million concert tickets, performed in 35 countries and were even engaged by legendary Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour to perform at his 50th birthday party. The essence of a tribute act is the reproduce as accurately and faithfully as possible every nuance of the originals and that is never more true that with the music of Pink Floyd. Multi-layered, by turns delicate and thunderous, Floyd’s vast and immersive soundscapes have to be delivered in every detail to audiences that know the material inside out – a big ask for both crew and PA system. Trevor Gilligan is manning front of house for the tour, for which London-based Capital Sound Hire have provided their newly-purchased inventory of Outline’s brand new ‘Superfly’ compact line-source loudspeaker system. The system configuration varies according to venue but Capital’s Outline equipment touring with TAPFS includes 32 Superfly and 12 GTO-SUB subwoofers as the […]
Outline’s Superfly Takes Off at PL&S 2018
Outline’s Superfly Takes Off at PL&S 2018 Prolight+Sound, Frankfurt – Hall 3.1, stand E36 – April 10th 2018 Leading European designers and manufacturers of professional loudspeaker systems Outline are proud to announce the launch of their latest concept at prolight+sound 2018. Following an evolutionary path from their groundbreaking and hugely influential Butterfly design, the new ‘Superfly’ compact line-source enclosure sets new standards in performance for a loudspeaker of these dimensions (learn more at superfly.outline.it). Weighing under 38kg (83.8 lb) per module yet with prodigious acoustic potential and class-leading dispersion control, Superfly integrates perfectly within the existing Outline portfolio and can be readily paired with any of their subwoofer designs. Superfly also redefines the low-frequency performance expectations of compact line-array loudspeakers. The LF extension from the individually-driven dual 10” drivers is extraordinary (below 50Hz) and for many applications Superfly’s ultra-wide bandwidth and clarity makes it the ideal solution without the need for additional subwoofers. However, when used with any Outline subwoofers its full acoustic potential is realised. Powered by the company’s own DSP-equipped X8 amplifiers, Superfly-based systems are flexible, powerful, predictable, quick and easy to deploy and convenient to transport, contributing vital operational efficiencies to any live sound scenario. Visitors to […]

What professional audio people are saying
“The GTO was already a winner on paper, due to the box containing superior components: four 3″ (HF), four 8″ (MF), and two 15″ (LF) all in a single enclosure. However it was only when I worked with the system for the first time in front of a 700,000-strong audience that I realized that the GTO was not only far superior on paper, but also compared with anything else I had ever worked with.”
“What can I say… Working with Outline Systems is like bringing back the correct acoustic rules… but with really high technology on board fully in control without tricks… The best moment is always when we turn on the full rig… For me it’s like sitting on my Harley on a non-stop ride from the East Coast to the West Coast… Pure pleasure… Chapeau, Monsieur Noselli!… So what can I say… Nothing – just listen… louder!…”
“With over 700 shows under my belt mixing Justin Moore, I’ve never come across another system that has the sonic accuracy and headroom of Outline’s GTO C-12.”
“Outline has done a wonderful job making GTO C-12 sound fabulous right from the start – rich, potent, and with the silky smooth highs that Outline is known for. In a theatre setting, it was the most hi-fi experience, much like sitting at home listening to my reference system.”
“Managing Director Keith Davis, Senior Project Manager Martin Connolly, Project Manager Robin Conway and I sat in the back row of the upper bowl and the clarity and sonic performance of the [GTO C-12] system blew us away…the highs, mids and lows were all incredible. There was not even a hint of needing delay hangs for the O2 Arena.”
“I try to mix the show the way I would want to hear it, nice and punchy with lots of vocals so the crowd can sing along. The GTO C-12 has easily accomplished that task. The system sounds even across the whole spectrum and didn’t seem to shift its tonal balance if it was driven lightly or given its head. Francis Rossi in particular is very in touch with the audience and they hang on his every quip, so having his vocal mic open and crystal clear is paramount. I go for big drums sounds, fat guitars, a good layer of BV’s and make sure all the guitar solos are present.”
“The sound produced by the guys on stage is rich, full and symphonic, and it is essential that I have a PA that capable of delivering this to all corners of the auditorium. The reach of this system is phenomenal – the people at the back of the balconies have been enjoying a far more full frequency spectrum than previously, particularly in the top end. The GTO C-12 system to me is voiced very forward, which makes it very suitable for arena-sized and smaller outdoor shows and this characteristic really helps it push the mix to all corners of the venue.”
“It was very risky and I’d never have accepted the challenge without the Outline systems, because I know them inside out!” [ref. World Youth Day in Krakow with 2.5 Million Pilgrims]
”The Outline system works great, and the settings available have enabled me to easily achieve a smooth and natural response across the entire frequency range.”
“GTO is the closest thing I found in live sound to the definition of studio monitoring. It’s so detailed that you need to treat it with respect. In some ways you have to rethink your mix and be careful not to overlook anything that will show up if it’s not handled carefully.”
“There are very few powerful PA’s on the market that also sound even, tight and clean. GTO is one of them. Its quality is outstanding and like every other Outline product is versatile and easy to manage. The excellent 3D prediction software OpenArray helps to create a perfect sound design too. The R&D team does incredible job. I started using Outline since the Butterfly days and it is always a pleasure to mix using their systems.”
“As a team we bring to professional audio the same legendary Italian passion and creativity that lead the world in many other fields. We listen to our customers so that we can create the true audience experience.“
