Newton meets Smaart instructor


Rajesh Khade’s work as an audio systems engineer across India eventually led him to become a Smaart Instructor in 2019, delivering courses throughout India in English, Hindi and Marathi. Working for Smaart, Khade was recently introduced to Outline’s Newton processor by Michael Häck, a German systems technician and fellow Smaart instructor. Impressed with Newton, Khade invested in the Outline processor shortly after.

‘What appeals to me the most is its use as a central systems processor: driving, controlling and processing all the PA components, with the ability to take in multiple consoles when in multi-band scenarios,' said Khade. ‘It can run backup consoles on projects where redundancy is of utmost importance and switch between them seamlessly. The no-latency WFIR filters and all-pass filters in particular will be extremely useful to me, as I usually combine different models and brands of speakers on the same setups. Getting them to work together has been a problem in the past, but with Newton I’m sure it’ll be plain sailing from now on. Also, the multi-format I/O option has taken away all that worrying, planning and arranging for multiple devices, as interconnections are all packed into the 1U device.’

Having studied medicine at university, Khade is no stranger to the classroom. ‘Almost everything is just a click away, unlike many others systems where to run the same function I would have to navigate through multiple menus,’ he continued. ‘Newton is literally a one-stop solution to all my systems engineering needs and I really look forward to deploying it on all my projects this upcoming season and it is definitely now an integral part of my training rig for all my Smaart training sessions.’
