GERMANY: The audio specification at this year's Jazz on the Danube festival - held recently in Straubing, Lower Bavaria - drew on a substantial supply of products from the EVI Audio family. Equipment manufactured by Electro-Voice, Dynacord, Midas and Klark Teknik was incorporated into a system overseen by Ingo Haasch and used during an event that featured performances from acts including Swedish jazz trio e.s.t. and funk-influenced band Incognito, reports PSN-e.

At the heart of Haasch's solution was an Electro-Voice XLC DVX line array system, used in conjunction with XLC215 and Phoenix series PX2181 subs. Power was supplied by 24 EV TG-7 Tour Grade amplifiers, each of which was equipped with an RCM 26 module.

The monitoring specification included Dynacord D 12-3 front fills, EV Xi-2123 side fills atop Xsubs and Dynacord PowerSub 315 drum fill extensions. The monitors were driven by EV CP3000S and CP4000S power amplifiers; processing was handled by Klark Teknik DN9848Es.

FOH console-of-choice was a Midas XL 200 console, of which Haasch remarked: "The warm sound of the XL 200 never ceases to impress me."

Festival organiser Ralph Huber praised the performance of the system, and noted the plaudits that it had received from both musicians and fans. "What impressed me above all about the sound reinforcement was the flexibility of the system: whether it was the hard funk of Incognito or the more elegiac offerings of e.s.t., the sound was invariably transparent and brilliant."

Attracting a record number of over 10,500 visitors, Jazz on the Danube 2007 also featured performances by Seal, Roger Cicero, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Nils W_lker, Candy Dulfer and Curtis Stigers.
