The Elbenwald Festival in Germany is a unique event. It combines the best from the world of conventions and festivals and is a meeting point for film fanatics, fantasy enthusiasts, gamers and music fans. For the time being, the Elbenwald Festival 2019 took place for the last time in the Event Park Luhmühlen before it moves to a new location next year.
To accurately convey an event with readings, meet & greets with stars, workshops, rock & pop concerts and symphony orchestras playing movie soundtracks, belongs undoubtedly to the more difficult tasks in the life of a technical service provider within the event industry.
German-based company PM Blue GmbH was responsible for the Elbenwald Festival and the A Summer's Tale Festival, which took place one week earlier at the same location, as a technical service provider for all matters relating to sound, light and video, and this in its sixth year. PM Blue relied on audio equipment from RCF throughout the event to cope with the challenging programme at the Elbenwald Festival.

We have a strong bond with this region and we intend to treat it in the best possible way.

RCF will highlight a vast range of new products at this year’s BITAM Show. The new RCF product line features innovative solutions, design upgrades and exciting new advances in audio technology.
RCF M 20X Digital Mixer - a 20x14 channel fully recallable desktop mixing/recording console. Equipped with 11 motorized faders and 16 digitally controlled preamps, the M 20X packs a whole suite of capabilities built on the acclaimed M 18 mixing platform, such as high-profile preamplifiers, studio-quality DSP processing, WiFi remote control and a comprehensive set of multitrack recording and playback functions. The mixer offers a total of 20 analog inputs and 14 output mixes, between the balanced analog outputs and the AES/EBU digital output.
While RCF has continued to improve its flagship TT+ Touring & Theatre products, infusing them with RDNet and FiRPHASE as standard, it has also extended the range, notably with the three-product TTL 4-A series. The new series has been designed to deliver top-quality sound for highly demanding events, both indoors or outdoors, and for small to medium-sized venues. Its design provides the audio engineer with the best tonal balance and intelligibility while offering different design options, in both horizontal and vertical arrangement. TTL 4-A (line array), TTW 4-A (wide dispersion) and TTP 4-A (point source) are equipped with 2 x 10” LF woofers and high performance 4.0" compression driver on a rotatable waveguide. All models are powered by 1600W RMS Class D amplifiers.
The complete line of AYRA near-field studio monitors, which has been named the AYRA PRO Series, replaces the current AYRA Series. The new range includes three models — 2-way active speakers PRO-5 (5”), PRO-6 (6”) and PRO-8 (8”).

Edison, New Jersey — When Nicholas DeLaCruz, founder and CEO of High Rise Production, a Memphis, Tennessee-based production company that specializes in AVL sales, installs, consultations and rentals, signed on with Beale Street Blues Company, an organization that manages many of the music and entertainment venues in the Memphis area, he knew that updating the sound system in the iconic B.B. King’s Blues Club would be one of his first tasks. “When I was at NAMM, I had it narrowed down to about three or four audio companies, but meeting Tarik [Solangi, RCF Vice President, Sales & Marketing] made all the difference,” proclaims DeLaCruz.
Festival des Bières du Monde de Saguenay is an annual beer festival that takes place in Quebec, Canada. Now celebrating its 11th year, Sound Distribution (2018), RCF’s territorial distributor, supported the event with a major RCF line array for the first time.
The event itself takes place on the Grand Stage at Chicoutimi, an outdoor gated amphitheatre-style venue situated in the picturesque harbour area, with between 8,000-12,000 people attending.
Sometimes claimed to be the first Big Thing in Australia, the Big Banana tourist complex is one of the main attraction of the New South Wales area - set amongst a banana plantation. Any Entertainment is a Coffs Harbour based production company specializing in touring, events and installation. The largest production company in the area, Any Entertainment makes use of a versatile RCF HDL 20-A setup, to meet their client’s needs across live music and corporate events audio.
The adaptability of the RCF’s medium-format array series has made it an industry-standard in mid-to-large productions, championed by its excellent sonic quality, high SPL and tunable directivity. The HDL 20-A unit is a highly efficient 700W (RMS) powered line array mid-high module, featuring 2 x 10” woofers, 1 x 3” and delivering a staggering 135dB max SPL.
Any Entertainment’s Production Manager, Nathan Holding, says since the company invested in the system, they have been very pleased with the results. The company makes use of 12 x HDL 20-A, 4 x SUB 8006-A dual 18” subwoofers and 4 x SUB 8004-A single 18” subwoofers; often servicing indoor concerts or outdoor festivals with 1000+ people. “With the HDL modules, there’s always enough power, no matter the gig; in fact, I don’t think we’ve ever seen the protection limiter LED trigger. We recently had the system setup for Australian electronic duo ‘Peking Duk’ in front of two thousand people, and whilst we did add two extra 8006-A subs, we found the system still had plenty of headroom to spare.”
The eleventh edition of Bergheim’s city festival “Summer in the City” was once again full of music. In front of six stages, spread all over the city, thousands of music enthusiasts could enjoy the free music performed by bands of all conceivable styles. Following the motto “1 evening - 6 stages” the festival transforms the city into the biggest stage in the area. New this year, the audience could vote for the bands, which can then perform on the audience stage. RCF was present to sound out the complete festival on all stages spreading the whole city. Using the new TTL 4-A system for the first time, even a German premiere was part of the party, taking place all over the city.
As a tradition, Summer in the city’s main attraction and the largest stage was the Center Stage. TSL Production used 16x HDL 30-A modules as main PA, 12x SUB 9006-AS for the lower end, 2x TT 22-A as nearfield monitors, 6x TT 25-SMA and 1x TTS 15-A as sub-monitor. Further stages in the city area were the World Music Stage with 2x TTL 6-A and 2x SUB 8006-AS as well as 4x NX 12-SMA. The New Vibes Stage was equipped with 2x TTL4-A, 4x SUB 9004-AS and 6x NX 12-SMA. On the Your Voice BM Stage 6x HDL 26-A, 4x SUB 9004-AS and 2x TT 22-A were used as monitor wedges. The unplugged stage was equipped with 2x TT 10-A, 2x TTS 15-A and 2x TT 22-A as monitor wedges.
Edison, New Jersey—RCF USA, provider of high-end live sound products and technology, announces that Gulf South Productions (GSP), will be a key customer and production services partner in the southeastern United States.
Located in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, GSP was first established on the Mississippi Gulf Coast in 1999, providing large-scale, full-service sound reinforcement, lighting design, rigging, staging, and video services for major cities including Memphis, Jackson, Atlanta and New Orleans. In August 2019, GSP converted their entire live sound inventory to RCF, a bold move which involved strategic decisions to accommodate RCF’s newly announced HDL 50-A 4K elements, as well as the highly efficient HDL 30-A and HDL 26-A line array systems into their inventory. To complete their systems, GSP chose the powerful SUB 9006-AS subwoofers for low end reinforcement across the board.
A palpable sense of anticipation rippled across RCF’s global network when the Italian company announced that its 70th anniversary would be marked with the enigmatically-named “A Night in Laguna” and that they were prepared to fly in guests from all points of the globe to share this landmark occasion. With the realisation that the Laguna was Venice’s famous enclosed bay on the Adriatic, and that the ultimate destination would be the Arsenale di Venezia (Venice Arsenal), the sense of expectation rose further.
Thanks to the building association of the same name, the name "Schwäbisch Hall" has reserved a permanent place in the collective memory in Germany. That there is also a self-proclaimed "up-and-coming cultural” city behind it is demonstrated by its strong cultural orientation.
One "brick" of this orientation is also the "Dolan Beats" electronic music festival. The festival grew from a small open-air party to 5,000 visitors, and headliners such as Felix Kröcher and Ostblockschlampen ensured a correspondingly positive response from the party-seeeking audience in 2019.
From the very beginning Livito Eventtechnik was responsible for the technical implementation of the event. "We used Loudspeakers from RCF as a sound reinforcement solution already last year. This year we have experienced much more popularity, and therefore the sound system has been increased accordingly", says Andreas Schnepf, GF of Livito Eventtechnik.
