A Yamaha CL5 was installed inside the massive 600-year-old Castello Aragonese in the Italian city of Gaeta for its annual jazz festival. Remix Sound Service, based in nearby Sperlonga, supplied the console with a RIO 3224-D I/O unit to mix both front of house and monitors, plus a Nexo GeoS12 system powered by Yamaha TXn series amplifiers. “The concerts take place in the castle’s Piazza d’Armi, so there are tall, flat, reflective walls all round. The shows also feature both established jazz artists and young musicians playing a variety of styles, so overall they are quite demanding to mix,” said sound engineer Michele De Simone (pictured). “I needed to use all of the CL5’s facilities, including the Neve Portico equaliser and compressor/limiter, which helped me to get a very high quality sound. All of the performers were enthusiastic about the precision and warmth of the sound, while the audiences gave every performance a great reception.” “As well as bringing established Italian jazz artists like Gege Telesforo, Greta Panettieri, Nicky Nicolai and Stefano Di Battista to perform, it is an excellent showcase for many young musicians, making it one of the most anticipated musical events of the year in Italy,” said the festival’s president Roberto Sasso. “2012 was a complete success and we really look forward to 2013!” www.yamahaproaudio.com
