Outline GTO was chosen to handle the TD JazzFest Stage at the Beaches Jazz Festival 2016. (12) GTO Boxes complemented the stage nicely, smoothly covering the several thousand people in attendance and receiving praise for many FOH engineers. "Mixing on the Outline GTO felt like I was in the studio. The rig sounds like a giant pair of reference monitors, I've never heard anything like it. It's clear, precise, and super easy to mix on, what a joy!" says FOH / Recording Engineer Jeff Pelletier. Production was provided by Toronto based Frontier Sound and Light.
