EUROPE RCF realigns in Europe


DBTECHNOLOGIES HAS announced the appointment of Giovanni Barbieri as sales and marketing director worldwide. In his new role, Barbieri will be responsible for global brand strategies and will concentrate on driving sales worldwide. The appointment heralds a consolidation of dBTechnologies’ worldwide sales and marketing operations in the Italian HQ in Crespellano near Bologna. The dBTechnologies Germany


satellite, based outside Cologne, will operate as a distribution company for Germany, Benelux, UK and Spain but under control of the Crespellano office. “dBTechnologies is facing its golden age growing so much month after month and that’s why we decided to build up a strong team here [at the HQ],” he said. Barbieri joined RCF Group almost a decade ago as export manager and for the past four years has served as dBTechnologies business development manager. “I feel sincerely honoured by

this appointment,” he added. “dBTechnologies will continue to provide our customers with innovative products developed by our young and active R&D team and will plan an aggressive growth strategy


worldwide especially in the emerging markets.” The reorganisation at dB has


resulted in international sales manager Harald von Falkenstein leaving the company. n www.dbtechnologies.com

Capital Sound’s Charles Ellery deployed the company’s new Martin AudioMLA system for this year’s Shakedown Festival in Brighton. Originally Ellery had chosen a W8-L setup for the event. “A few calls to Martin Audio confirmed we would have the system in time, so I adjusted the spec, selecting 12 MLA per side for the hangs with nine WS218X subs per side in a cardioid array,” he said. www.martin-audio.com

SOUNDCRAFT’S SI Performer made its live show debut in September at the Royal Albert Hall for Sunflower Jam; an event founded six years ago by Jacky Paice, wife of Deep Purple’s Ian Paice, to raise money for underprivileged and sick children. This year’s performers included Alice Cooper, Brian May and Alfie Boe. Connected via MADI to a Soundcraft Vi6 at FOH, the Si Performer controlled “everything except the live band”, according to Harman’s Gert Sanner (pictured), who mixed the show. “This event’s such a good one to be involved in, and a great test for a brand new product,” he said. n www.soundcraft.com


For the first time ever, Si Performer integrates class-leading Soundcraft digital audio mixing with parallel control over stage lighting. So now even a ‘single operator’ can produce a very special event.
