Studio Berar provided an extensive JBL VERTEC line array system for the Exit 2011 Festival in Serbia, which included performances by Arcade Fire, Jamiroquai and Pulp.

NOVI SAD, Serbia – HARMAN’s JBL VERTEC® line arrays were out in force at this year’s 4-day Exit 2011 Festival in Serbia, which saw bands such as Arcade Fire, Jamiroquai, Pulp, Portishead and Grinderman among the headliners. Held at the picturesque 18th century Petrovaradin Fortress of Novi Sad, on the banks of the Danube, Studio Berar’s long-standing and highly experienced rental department has been servicing this event since its inception in 2000.

The 100,000 people who attended this year’s Exit Festival enjoyed performances by numerous major international artists, presented with top-quality sound and lighting. This year’s event honored the 2,000,000th visitor since the festival began; the lucky music fan was presented with a 10-year free ticket.

The main stage was equipped with 32 JBL VERTEC VT4889 fullsize line array elements (hung 16 per side), with VT4888 midsize line array elements providing out fill coverage and 36 VT4880 fullsize arrayable subwoofers, distributed stage left and right. The overall system design was pre-determined using JBL’s LAC II (Line Array Calculator) software. A dbx DriveRack 4800 Loudspeaker Management System, driving over 40 Crown I-Tech power amplifiers, provided EQ and routing functions. A pair of Soundcraft Vi6 digital consoles was provided for the visiting sound engineers.

In the separate Dance Arena performance area, international artists such as Underworld, Deadmau5, Groove Armada and James Zabiela headed up an all-star cast. Here, the sound reinforcement system featured two hangs each of 24 VT4888 loudspeakers and VT4880 subwoofers, driven by a dbx DriveRack 4800 and Crown CTs3000 power amplifiers. Soundcraft MH3 and MH4 analog consoles were provided for the FOH and monitor positions.

Finally, the smaller Fusion Stage, featuring numerous regional acts, was equipped with 12 VERTEC VT4888 enclosures per side, with six VT4880 subs. A 48-channel Soundcraft Series FIVE at front of house was complemented by a classic SM20 monitor desk on the stage.

For Studio Berar, system management was overseen by sound engineer Aleksandar Pejin. Studio Berar marketing manager, Lazar Josanov, stated, “We found that our design approach provided excellent control and clear, strong well-defined sound. The V4 preset for VERTEC sounds perfect, and in combination with JBL’s LAC II software and HARMAN HiQnet™ for system setup, we were able to provide a secure, well-protected festival solution.?
