Outline’s Newton Scores Third Patent,
Further Platform Developments Announced

Outline are delighted to announce that their groundbreaking Newton audio processor has been awarded a European patent [N° EP3776932B1].

 Outline is proud to introduce Newton, the next generation in audio system control and networking. Newton advances the management of sophisticated audio systems by combining new filter technology, multi-format audio signal routing, multi-format standards conversion and digital signal synchronisation in a single 1RU networkable chassis

Rob Scovill
Kenny Chesney's FOH engineer

"Kenny Chesney’s legendary stadium tours are more akin to a traveling festival in that, hosting multiple acts with headliner pedigrees during a show day, they become a case study in signal management and workflow, especially so at FOH.”

“Outline’s Newton provided us a very elegant and hassle free way to onboard multiple AES signals from multiple digital consoles to the Dante network for the PA drive that was designed and implemented by Dave Shatto and Clair Brothers. I'm very impressed by this platform and I can't wait to dig in deeper with it for future tours.”


Paul Timmins
22live’s Hire Director

“Newton was an easy choice for us as our go-to drive processor and one of the items that we had to add to our rental stock as soon as we could. It’s now well established as the industry’s leading device for that role, as it should be – its flexibility and reliability are unmatched. 22live are taking a very disciplined and streamlined approach to our inventory and in particular we are only investing in products in which we all have a personal belief. Newton fits that view perfectly.”


Sean ‘Sully’ Sullivan - FOH Engineer
Roger Waters - World Tour

"The Newtons do so much so well in 1U of rack space, it’s impossible to ignore them as the centerpiece driving our massive, intricate system. Add in the best sounding WFIR filters, simple ease of use, rock solid consistent performance, I can’t think of a better piece to cover what they do."


Keith Cunningham | Britannia Row
Technical Head

“Following several demos of the Newton we were very impressed with the GUI, fast workflow and ease of use. The Newton is the all-in-one solution to many technical problems.”

“The form factor is the real selling point, it’s a constant battle for all manufacturers to try and shrink the footprint while retaining functionality – Outline have managed to find a perfect match between both. Fernando at Outline and James at CUK have been very receptive to our feedback and feature requests, which really inspires confidence in both companies.”

“We see the Newton being used for all future projects that require simple and effective system management – any tool that speeds up workflow and simplifies complex clocking arrangements is a winner!”


Martijn Van Renterghem
A-Live Sound Ltd

"Because we are using a lot of different point source speakers in different configurations, we need the best filters available to perfectly time and phase align all of them – Newton opened that door for us and we never looked back. With its modern, intuitive GUI it is also easy to use for less experienced sound engineers. After personally using Lake System processing for 10+ years, the Newton really changed my way of running PA systems.”


Jon Monson - Rat Sound Systems, Inc California

"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."

Newton comes in three hardware versions:
Newton 16, Newton 16+4 and Newton 16+8. Newton 16 offers simultaneous signal connections over Dante™ (AES67 compliant), AES3, MADI Optical and MADI Coaxial, with the capability of fully processing 216 Inputs and 216 Outputs simultaneously. 

All processed signals and direct outputs can be routed out of Newton using any of the available audio standards. This, as just one example, would allow signals to be received over MADI, processed and then transmitted to multiple amplifiers on Dante with an AES3 output for backup. This direct out, processing and routing ability can also be used to create a backbone for a multiple Newton Network to share signals.

Internal processing is all at 96 kHz, with an internal data depth up to 64 bits. In each processing section users have precise control over Level, Delay, Polarity and Raised Cosine Filters (implemented within WFIR Equalisers), all functions that are required to manage and optimize a loudspeaker system.
While Newton 16 is an all-digital device, Newton 16+4 and Newton 16+8 add the useful capability of local analog inputs and outputs. 

Newton 16+4 adds 4 auxiliary analog inputs and outputs while Newton 16+8 adds 8 auxiliary analog Inputs and outputs. Each analog input is also provided with additional processing and matrix allowing inputs to be processed, routed and mixed into the main matrix. All three versions of Newton share the same motherboard and it is possible to upgrade from Newton 16 to Newton 16+4 or Newton 16+8.
