The Fuji Rock Festival – the largest in Japan – featured an Outline GTO system at the event’s White Stage, comprising 24 GTO elements, 2 GTO down-fill elements and 18 ground-installed DBS 18-2 subwoofers. This year’s edition featured performances by Bjork, The Cure, Nine Inch Nails, Vampire Weekend, XX, Skrillex and Tame Impala. Masaaki Azuma – pro-audio veteran and sound engineer at the event - is the owner of Japanese rental company Try Audio, which was responsible for the Fuji Rock project. The company’s equipment stock already includes 48 Butterfly systems, 18 Mantas and 36 Subtech 218, with relative Outline T Series power amplifiers. “Before purchasing Outline’s large-format system, I had the opportunity of testing it personally at several large concerts in Asian stadia with famous bands from both east and west,” said Azuma. “Thanks to the enormous dynamic range, I realised that - as well as Rock - the system can easily handle the nuances of any genre, including orchestral music. Its intelligibility is unrivalled at astonishing distances: what I heard at Fuji Rock during the mix confirms the objectivity of Outline’s claims regarding the long-throw performance of this ‘contraption’. I’m really impressed." Giorgio Biffi, Outline’s CEO added: “The presence of GTO in Japan, the super-technological Far East nation, is an important strategic ‘tessera’ (ticket) in our expansion plans. “As is already the case in China, Vietnam, Indonesia, Australia, and elsewhere soon, from now on it will be easier to meet the numerous requests for our products – regularly included on riders – in that part of the world, which has such a dynamic live sound reinforcement sector. Welcome to the Outline family, Try Audio!” www.outline.it
