DWR delivers lighting and audio at Semi Soet
Semi Soet is a new music venue which opened its door in Centurion. The owners turned to DWR Distribution for their audio and lighting requirements and the effective solution included Quest loudspeakers, a DiGiCo console and Robe lighting. Audio has the loudest voice when it comes to priorities for a music location and Jaco Beukes from DWR recommended 4 Quest HPI110 loudspeakers and 2 Quest HPI18BP 18” Subs as the main system. The audio installation also included 2 Quest QM450As for monitor requirements. The centre fill and out fills comprise of 2 Quest HPI111 speakers. To cater for the audio upstairs, 3 HP15 5” speakers was a perfect fit as its small size made it very unobtrusive without compromising in SPL or tone.
Semi Soet decided to invest in a DiGiCo S21 console and a DiGiCo D-Rack to provide 32 microphone inputs and 16 outputs for PA and additional monitor sends. For the intimate stage and lighting requirements, Schalk Botha from DWR headed the project. Besides the installation of 2 lighting bars (4m each), the new fixtures 2 Robin Spikies for fast LED Washbeams, and 2 Robin LEDBeam150s for sweeping beams and wide, far-reaching washes. A Showline SL Nitro 510 creates LED Strobes with bursts of lights and dynamic effects. The rig also includes Longman F4Ups, F8Ups and FacePar 900A LED flat par lights. Geared towards small to large size venues, the Le Matire MVS Hazer was the answer for the haze stream.
