This year’s San Sebastian International Jazz Festival (Jazzaldia) relied on Lab.gruppen amplifiers and Lake Controller software, provided by Spanish hire company Soinua. The event featured some of the finest jazz musicians in the world take to the various stages set up in the Basque country city. A total of 14 PLM 10000Q’s were used on the main PA, which powered a rig featuring an Electro-Voice X-Line system, with a mixture of Xvls, Xvlt and Xsubs. Monitors were handled by a further six PLM 10000Q’s. “We have around 30 Lab.gruppen amplifiers in our inventory,” said Jorge De La Torre, owner of Soinua. “The reason we chose to invest in that technology is because we wanted a tool to unify all of our systems and improve the overall quality of the audio. Since the PLM Series is capable of powering any of our touring systems, and increases the overall clarity we are able to offer, then it is a perfect choice.” The two-input, four-output PLM 10000Q integrates networked digital signal distribution through Dante, drive processing, power amplification, and load verification plus performance monitoring in a single hardware unit and unified Lake Controller software. “The integrated Lake Processing within the PLM Series was a real breakthrough for the world of PA,” commented De La Torre. “We have used Lake since the early days of the Dolby DLP, so to have the world’s best processing platform inside your amplifier, with the need for an external DSP, meant less rack space and less equipment, so it really streamlined our offerings to customers. For speed of use, flexibility and sound quality, the PLM Series really is unsurpassed.” www.labgruppen.comwww.soinua.com
