World’s Largest Gospel Concert Relies On Outline To Deliver The Word
World’s Largest Gospel Concert Relies On Outline To Deliver The Word With an audience estimated at close to three quarters of a million people, ‘The Experience’ is an interdenominational gospel concert held annually in Lagos, Nigeria. Convened and hosted by Pastor Paul Adefarasin, the colossal event debuted in December 2006 and is now the largest musical concert in Africa, featuring guest artistes from numerous countries leading the crowd in worship and praise.

A long-standing fan and client of Outline, CyTech’s owner Cyril Utomoibor has in the past deployed numerous Outline products from his inventory for these events including Butterfly, GTO C-12, LAB 21, DBS 18-2, DVS, Doppia, Subtech 218 and others, but for the 2017 event he extended his investment in Outline with the purchase of their flagship GTO […]
Country Star Tours with SES And Outline GTO C-12
Country Star Tours with SES And Outline GTO C-12 Justin Moore’s Hell On A Highway tour started in mid-October 2017 and continues well into 2018 with this rising star of country music performing in more than 40 cities across the USA.Touring in support of his 2016 album Kinda Don’t Care, the singer and songwriter has scored seven number one singles on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart and in 2014 won the New Artist Of The Year title at the Academy Of Country Music Awards. His eponymous debut album and follow-up release Outlaws Like Me both went double platinum in the US while third album Off The Beaten Path achieved gold status. Winston-Salem based Special Event Services are the audio contractor for the tour and are deploying part of their large Outline inventory. The main PA comprises left-right hangs of twelve Outline GTO C-12 modules with a single, wide-dispersion GTO-DF downfill cabinet flown at the base of the array. Six Outline LAB 21 HS subwoofers per side provide the low-frequencies, while six Outline LIPF-082 dedicated stage lip-fill enclosures cover the seats immediately in front of the stage. Moore’s “long-standing” engineer Jeff Oliver is manning the FOH console and is clearly enjoying […]
Outline GTO leads the dance at Nextech
ENG Outline GTO leads the dance at Nextech Florence’s Nextech festival chalked up a sold-out twelfth edition in December at the city’s Fortezza da Basso under the Techno banner, with 3,000 fans flocking to see and hear the man many of them call the Techno King, Chris Liebing, ably preceded by a blistering set by up and coming local DJ Marco Effe. Frankfurt-based but constantly globetrotting on the international club and festival circuit, Liebing is a Techno pioneer, DJ, producer, podcast and radio host, as well as being the driving force behind his CLR label. Being an 80s kid who grew up with synth pop bands such as Depeche Mode (he recently remixed the band’s track “Going backwards”) and electronic dance acts like Nitzer Ebb and many more, his musical background also contains vocal and melodic touches from this era, which he blends into his current dynamic sets with increasing frequency. One of the first DJs to use the new possibilities offered by the digitalization of music in an original creative manner, Liebing is constantly on the search for new methods of creative expression. These include real-time manipulation of individual tracks and sounds in his DJ sets, so the sonic […]
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.”
“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]
“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 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.“
