Jazz in San Sebastian with Lab.gruppen
31 August 2012
Spain - With any festival, reliable systems are of paramount importance, but when it's the San Sebastian International Jazz Festival (Jazzaldia), then clarity and power are also big concerns.
This event saw some of the finest musicians in the jazz world take to the various stages, with Spanish company Soinua relying on its collection of Lab.gruppen amplifiers to provide the power and musicality required.
A total of 14 PLM 10000Q's were used on the main PA, which powered a rig featuring Electrovoice X-Line, with a mixture of Xvls, Xvlt and Xsubs. The monitor duties 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 to 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 seamlessly 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. This innovative approach is a cohesive blend of Lake Processing and Lab.gruppen power, and the combination is one that has found favour with companies like Soinua.
