The KOKO Sound System: Utlising the most up to date digital technology, sound engineers can access and adjust all of the venue’s amplification from a single laptop computer, located anywhere in the venue. Sound mixing is carried out by using Soundcraft Vi6 digital live consoles which boast the latest in colour-coded touchscreen-driven user interfaces. One console handles front of house (audience) sound while the other is used to mix the sound heard by the musicians and performers on stage.
Audio technology such as this does not come cheap but the result of this investment is a fully integrated and bespoke system that is the envy of the world’s finest live music venues.
