Guido Donot & Toni Loitsch: Guitar Sound Live
Cordial presents the guitarist of the band DONOTS, songwriter and producer Guido Donot, who will tell you how he comes to his sound, both in the studio and on stage!
He will show how classical setups – with lots of cables, hot amps, loudspeakers and microphones – not only lead to good sound, but also how to deal with certain problems and even make use of them.
Guido is supported by Toni (Meloni) Loitsch, studio captain of Nautilus Studios and live sound enigneer for DONOTS, Joris and Silbermond.
Toni will tell us a lot about the technical way from the fingers to a PA system. Here we will get to know how the sound from the fingers over all stations and without compromises reaches the ears of the audience.

Cables and their effect on sound – The subject of an endless debate
If you go out on a missing to look for proof that cables have no or marginal influence on sound quality then you will most certainly find opinions supporting that on YouTube or in one of the countless web forums. However, there are equally as many musicians, sound engineers and producers who swear by the effect of audio cables. What could be the reason for such polar opposites in opinion? How can it be explained that people come to such contradictory results?
Material scientist Jürg Vogt, who has been developing cables for over two decades, presents his perspective and reproduces a YouTube-famous cable comparison test. Max Frankl, guitarist and composer, assists and shares his experience as a professional musician.
Jürg Vogt develops the sound conductors at VOVOX. For more than 20 years, he has made it his business and life’s work to care deeply about the big topic of ‘cables’.
