California rental company Rat Sound Systems Inc, one of the best-known and most iconic firms in western USA, has decided to purchase some Newton 16+8, Outline’s FPGA-based processing platform.

Jon Monson, Project Manager at Rat Sound Systems Inc states: “Rat Sound has been searching for several years for a solution to drive our festival sound systems and Outline has met the challenge with an elegant solution. With the Newton we can combine consoles and drive outputs in a multitude of popular formats, and we appreciate all the various clocking options. Our System Engineers instantly appreciated the intuitive, easy to use software control. Rat has immediately begun deploying Newton’s on a multitude of festivals, and we plan on utilizing them on all our festival events in 2019 and beyond.”
