Rental company PA Geluid, based in Beuningen NL, has purchased a complete Outline package including twelve Mini-COM.P.A.S.S., two Flysub 15 and two DBS-18-2 subwoofers. The systems – all self-powered – feature Outline’s proprietary iMode technology.
Every Outline enclosure equipped with iMode can be controlled using an iPad, iPhone or iPod touch, with native applications, in real time, via Wi-Fi (apps are downloadable from Apple Store’s Productivity category). For example, during a concert, this offers the advantage of being able to control a line array made up of various elements by means of just a tablet.
This is the case with the Mini-COM.P.A.S.S. and its “companion” Flysub 15 subwoofer. In the specific case of Mini-COM.P.A.S.S., the app also “governs” the sixteen possible combinations of horizontal dispersion (60° to 150°) that this system – unique on the international compact line array scenario – puts at system engineers’ disposal.
PA Geluid’s owner, Paul Achterberg, states, “We needed a flexible, lightweight but very powerful line array system for applications such as theatre and live events, and were introduced to the Outline Mini-COM.P.A.S.S. system, which continued to surprise us from then on. Whether used in line array or ground-stacked configuration, it delivers stunningly high audio quality. The cabinet’s wings can be easily adjusted to obtain the various dispersion angles often required from a line array and sonic performance is so good one suspects cabinets hidden elsewhere, as the Mini-COM.P.A.S.S. units are so compact.”
He adds, “When introduced to the Outline’s iMode control, our engineers smiled. Run on an iPad, the GUI shows real-time audio / system info and one has real-time EQ control of tone balance and volumes for each cabinet in such a simple manner – unbelievable! This Mini-COM.P.A.S.S. system is by far the most versatile and compact line array / ground stack system on the market today. I think people should wake up and try this magnificent Outline product.”
Axel Nagtegaal of The Audio Specialists concludes: “We are very proud Paul chose Outline Mini-COM.P.A.S.S., as he is known as a person who doesn’t come to compromises on audio quality. Ever since we started distributing Outline, we have experienced a real wave of positive feedback on the systems we sold, and that I believe is what drives us all in this industry – passion for life, audio and technology”.
