Taranto, Italy (August 6, 2019)—A key event for the Italian music industry, the annual Medimex International Festival and Music Conference was held once again this summer in Taranto. Helping provide audio for the numerous live acts that performed there, International Sound s.r.l. of Bari, Italy handled live sound for the Giardini Peripato stage, which hosted the likes of Clock DVA, the folk jazz-rock band Napoli Centrale, the Italian pop band La Municipàl and Asian Dub Foundation with special guest Adrian Sherwood.
International Sound installed a Bose Professional DeltaQ ShowMatch compact line array system; optimized by system technician Luigi Vargiolu, the Left/Right main system configuration consisted of 24 ShowMatch modules supported by two-dozen ShowMatch SMS118 subwoofers.
Sherwood remarked, “The PA was very accurate. I had a very short soundcheck, and I immediately liked the response of the system. It was my very first time using this PA, but I enjoyed it. I think it had a very good tonality to it, it wasn’t harsh. It was high fidelity quality, very nice.”
Fabio Favia, FOH of Woodstock Project Band, noted, “At the end of the soundcheck, I reviewed the channels, in particular the voices, and realized I had only used a high-pass filter and a compressor; no special EQ was needed. The voices were present but not intrusive. During the performances, the system gave me a lot of headroom, even in the moments in which I particularly pushed on the vocals. I never heard a jarring sound, something that often happens when you want to beef-up the mid range. When I was bringing out the electric guitars, I always perceived a wall of balanced sound. Finally, about the low-frequency range, I can say that the system responded very well; everything I did on the DiGiCo SD5 console was instantaneously reproduced, even on corrections as little as 2/3 db. Mixing on ShowMatch made my job easy this time, and this means that the system not only sounds good but is well-calibrated, aligned and assembled correctly.”
