Vio L210 unleashed in Kenya
KENYA: Sound Creations recently added to its existing dBTechnologies inventory with the purchase of eight Vio L210 line array speakers, the first in Kenya. The systems were put to use for the first time at the Nairobi edition of the mega street bash events recently held by Telkom Kenya as it launches its 4G network across the country. The event took place at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre and saw Sound Creations partner with Homeboyz Entertainment on the sound setup.
The mega street bash event featured performances from renowned Kenyan artists, such as Sauti Sol and Kelele Takatifu. With this being the first the outing for the L210s in Kenya and such high-profile acts taking part, Sound Creations reported some trepidation from the artist’s sound engineers. These fears were put to rest with a sound check session conducted by the Homeboyz technicians and Sauti Sol’s sound engineer.
Joining the eight Vio L210s as part of the setup were three S318 subwoofers. The systems were all connected via dBTechnologies’ RDNet interface. A Yamaha M7 provided control at FOH, while JBL stage monitors were mixed via an Avid Venue SC48. Amos Kyalo, Sound Creations live sound engineer, managed the setup and was reportedly impressed with the performance of the new Vio cabinets.
