The first Outline GTO C-12 system in Greece has gone to rental company Stelios Kyrillidis, and received its debut with Bryan Ferry at Thessaloniki’s Dassous Theatre. A second event followed just two days later, with concerts by top Greek acts Giannis Aggelakas, 1000mods, Active Member and Pyx Lax at the Vrahon Theatre in Athens.

Dassous Theatre‘The system was a personal choice of Bryan Ferry’s sound engineer Davide Lombardi, who assured me that he preferred this system to others he has worked with over the years,’ says Bill Michailidis of Mega Event, Outline’s distributor in Greece.

For the Dassous Theatre set-up, Giulio Gandini (Outline R&D Engineer and Tech Support & Training specialist) came to Greece to consult on the system design. He preferred the system’s the full-range preset with the high-pass filter at 40Hz to give more emphasis to the low frequencies for the upper seats. ‘I think the system responded in the best possible way to expectations, satisfying Davide’s personal taste and that of Bryan Ferry’s production,’ Michailidis says.

After Thessaloniki, the system was installed at the Vrahon Theater for four important concerts by the top Greek names, including influential Greek rock band Pix Lax. The system was rather oversized for the venue, but SPL requirements were respected and sound engineers were impressed – before and after the shows, they enthused about the results as far as even coverage and headroom were concerned.

The Dassous Theatre set-up‘It’s a balanced fast system that easily ensures a sensational big sound without any interference,’ says Pyx Lax FOH sound engineer, Nikos Pappas. ‘The power of the system was redundant for the theatre, so I’ve no conclusions about its limits, since I didn’t come close to them even for the hardest-hitting points in the show. My overall impression with this first contact with the GTO C-12 system was extremely positive.’

‘Working with GTO at the Vrahon Theater was an enjoyable experience, as the technical crew working with us knew how to combine theory and practice, with the accent on the latter,’ adds Aggelakas, FOH sound engineer, Giorgos Tachtsidis.

Michailidis handled system tuning, especially the sub configuration, despite a tight time frame: ‘It was one of the few cases in which, when it comes to low frequencies, not only the sound engineer and spectators in the centre of the venue were happy, but the subs’ energy was evenly distributed throughout the theatre with variations of 3-4dB at the sides,’ he says

‘The system has tremendous tolerance at high pressure, without a trace of limiting or distortion –at least in the audible range. It gives the feeling of a more “open” PA that won’t cover imperfections in a band’s mix or performance, as other brands do in some way. This, of course, gives you the opportunity of mixing with different types of processing on the mix bus, obtaining interesting results.’
