Intensive lineup, big stars, and a fine architectural setting: with these ingredients, Stupinigi Sonic Park challenged Turin's imperial past by offering a high-level musical event that praises contemporaneity. Italian music and internationality were both cores of the festival with names such as Zucchero, Marracash, LP, Carl Brave, Ben Harper, and many others.
In the vast spaces of the Palazzina di Caccia of Stupinigi (Turin, Italy), ATS Service supported the sound of the festival and chose the VIO Series sound reinforcement complements to build an imposing PA. The different branded sound solutions matched together and defined a Main consisting of the full-scale line array module, essential for outdoor touring, and a powerful downfill featuring the latest generation VIO L1610 module.
Main: 32 VIOL212s + 6 VIO L1610s as downfill in 16+3 per side
Subs: 24 VIO S218s in arc-delay
8 VIO L208s as frontfill
Danny Bernini has spent several years traveling the world mixing FOH for the renowned artist Ben Harper. On the occasion of the Stupinigi Sonic Park Festival, we spoke about his experience with the VIOs,"For the Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals 2022 tour I have been mixing on Digico's brand new 338 with various Waves plugins. However we are not carrying full PA, so I get the chance to compare all the top PA systems night to night, back to back. The first thing I noticed immediately when I heard the VIO series line array, was that the stereo imaging seemed very clear from FOH, I felt like I could hear the most minor panning adjustments. The second thing I noticed at sound check was that the coverage was very even as I walked around the front of the arena. The high-end stayed consistent and clear and the subs didn't have any dead spots, it was quite impressive right away. Then as the show started, I just found myself just having fun and having an easy time getting things to sit in the mix the way I wanted. I'm a fan and look forward to my next show on a VIO Series rig and hope to take one out on a full run at some point in the future."
