TODD LEWIS

FOH Engineer - Luke Combs World Tour

World Tour 2024
“All I can say to any engineer that asks, or doesn’t, is that you owe it to yourself to hear this rig. Every guest engineer we’ve had on it agrees that it’s hands down the best PA they’ve mixed on. Between the support that Special Event Services and Michael Brammer provides year to year down to the tuning and attention to every detail that Joe Lefebvre, our systems engineer gives, we are set up for success at every show.”

World Tour 2023
“This [Outline GTO] P.A. is stupid good. There are a lot of good-sounding boxes out there, but this one smokes the rest. The stereo imaging is amazing, and it has all the horsepower I could ever need – I’ve never wished I had more.”

“I have to say, the PA that we’re using this year stands head and shoulders above the rest. Outline GTO boxes and accompanying C-12, Mantas 28 and LAB 21 subs more than have the goods for the dynamic show that we put on. There’s a very small learning curve to carrying over an existing show file to this PA, but it is WELL worth a listen. I’m sold on it. 102db-A (at FOH, 170 feet from the stage) with all that headroom, clarity beyond belief and a stereo image that is unrivalled make this the PERFECT system for this Luke Combs stadium tour.”

JOSEPH LEFEBVRE

Systems Tech - Luke Combs World Tour

World Tour 2024
“I don’t have a whole lot to add to the comments I previously made [Luke Combs World Tour] about the rig, but I will say I remain just as pleased with the system overall. The PA has been outstanding in all aspects; the coverage, reliability and tonal response of Outline’s GTO is just fantastic.”

World Tour 2023
“Deployment of the Outline system has been an absolute breeze. There are a lot of elements to the rig and my team can get it in and out of the venue effortlessly which gives me plenty of time to tune and align the system. The Armonía control software combined with the Newton processors on the front end have provided all the tools I need to accurately dial it in with minimal effort.”

“Sonically, the PA has everything we’re looking for. The low end is tight and punchy, and the high end is crystal clear without being fatiguing for the listener. Luke’s vocals combined with the 8” drivers are a great combination. At distance, the PA provides clarity in droves and with the TTM amplifiers we have all the power and headroom we could ask for. All this in addition to the incredible stereo imaging of GTO makes for a memorable concert experience for everyone from the front of the venue to all the way in the back.”

CHRIS MILLER

FOH engineer for Mitchell Tenpenny

“I’m honestly blown away at the clarity and impact of the Outline. Even in rooms that are famously difficult to mix in, like the Alamodome for example, it’s been big and flattering and clear. It moves a ton of air without sacrificing any articulation. Every show, I put up a virtual soundcheck with zero corrective system EQ on my end, and it rocks. All the impact and gas you could want. The vocals are clear and forward with enough space and headroom to make the band bus hit as hard as I want it to. Best part is it doesn’t have to be loud to accomplish those things. I’ve been sitting at 96-97 dBA for over a minute every show. GTO Outline absolutely belongs at the top of the list of A level large format PA’s.”

JEFF OLIVER

Sound Engineer for Justin Moore

[ref. Luke Combs World Tour with GTO]

“10 years ago today we debuted on tour, in my personal opinion, the best PA system in the world. Today, Luke Combs, arguably one of the biggest country stars out right now, is getting ready to deploy it as well. No other system compares to Outline GTO. Nothing.”

JERRY SLONE

Production Manager - Luke Combs World Tour

“As an audio engineer myself, this PA has done nothing but impress me. Before we made the switch, I was shown audio coverage maps overlaid into a few of the venues we were playing this year and was caught off guard, to be honest. Our team, which I am extremely proud of, continues to strive for improvements, deploying this system has been just that, an improvement.”

TRAVIS STRAIN

System Engineer / FOH Tech • Future’s "One Big Party" (US) Tour

“[Outline GTO system] is very clear without being sterile. There’s less ‘color’ than other line arrays and that gives you more options. The vocal clarity on it is unreal. When other engineers bring in their files used on other P.A.s, the first thing they do is back the vocal range a bit. And the mid-range goes on for days.”

ISHAI RATZ

house sound engineer @ Warner Theatre (WASHINGTON DC)

“Everyone is blown away by how good this system is. Indeed, the FOH engineer for the first act (AJ Croce, Jim Croce’s amazingly talented son) in the theatre on this new system remarked that he has never been in a theatre that is so evenly covered and that the system has clarity and nuance that is unmatched.

We also added a Midas HD96 as our FOH console and to me the combination of Midas, Newton and Superfly is an amazing sound system for the venue.”

FOH FOR STING

​”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.”

ANDY MAY

FOH ENGINEER - STATUS QUO

“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.”

JUREK TABOROWSKI

GIGANT SOUND LETUS

“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]

BEN FENNER

FOH ENGINEER - STEVE HACKETT

“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.”

TREVOR GILLIGAN

FOH ​ ENGINEER​ | ​AUSTRALIAN PINK FLOYD

“…​just done our sound check for an open air show, the ​[Superfly] rig breezed it, it’s absolutely fantastic, full, clear, powerful, and travels a great distance;​ I have been working on my processing and now have the mix very smooth, it’s a great system. The show was fantastic, I can’t believe how solid the system is outside​. It’s the best I have used. It’s perfect!”

JASON FARAH

PRESIDENT - SPECIAL EVENT SERVICES

“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.”

PAUL TIMMINS

OPERATIONS AND DEVELOPMENT DIRECTOR, CAPITAL SOUND HIRE LTD

“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.”

JEFF OLIVER

SOUND ENGINEER FOR JUSTIN MOORE

“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.”

DAVE RODEN

FOH ENGINEER | STEREOPHONICS

“Nick Boulton and I have found Superfly to be an exceptionally good sounding and flexible cabinet. It has a very flat, consistent response which reacts very well to EQ and copes easily with a wide dynamic range of programme material. The low box weight and fly-ware also means we can hang a sufficiently high number of cabinets from the smallest to the largest of venues, whether clubs, theatres or arenas. Some of the results have been truly stunning and all in all, I feel the combination of Superfly and Mantas was the perfect choice for the European leg of the current Stereophonics World Tour 2020. I look forward to using Outline products again in the future…!”

JAY RIGBY

FOH ENGINEER - QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE

“I used Outline at Red Rocks and it did a fantastic job of making it up to the top of the hill. The system engineers did an excellent job of covering the Lucca Summer Festival venue.”

NICK BOULTON

SYSTEM TECH - CAPITAL SOUND

“I was very impressed with the musicality of the Superfly. In terms of tonality, it’s very smooth and hi-fi and allows you to get very even coverage with smooth transitions between hangs. Also, Outline have done a great job with the prediction software, which allowed me to verify my designs before putting them into practice. There aren’t many user-friendly 3D bits of design software out there, but they’ve managed to create one. The other key part of the system for me was the Newton processor. It’s an extremely powerful tool and my life would have been a lot harder without it!”

ANDREA TAGLIA

FOH ENGINEER FOR ANDREA BOCELLI

“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.”

DAVIDE LOMBARDI

​F​OH ENGINEER FOR K​ATE BUSH, BRYAN FERRY, JUDITH OWEN, REGINA SPEKTOR

“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.”

MATTEO CIFELLI

FOH FOR IL DIVO, TOM JONES, BRYAN ADAMS

“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.”
