Santana in concert with the L-ACOUSTICS K1 system
FRANKFURT, Germany — Santana embarked on the European leg of its Universal Tone tour throughout late September and October with a K1 line source system provided by L-ACOUSTICS Rental Network Agent Satis&Fy. Setting off in Dublin and ending in Hamburg, the 21-date tour did the rounds of Europe’s leading arenas, covering hits from Santana’s four-decade career.
“The L-ACOUSTICS K1 system has met and exceeded all of my expectations,” says Robert Mailman, Santana’s front-of-house engineer. “The system’s unique features, combined with excellent tour support from the staff at Satis&Fy, have made the Santana 2010 European leg a great success.”

The main system consisted of 14 K1 large format line source cabinets and three dV-DOSC as downfill per side, with six K1-SB low frequency extensions flown beside both arrays. The system was driven by LA-RAKs housing L-ACOUSTICS LA8 amplified controllers.
Satis&Fy is also using an L-ACOUSTICS K1/KUDO system for Joe Cocker’s current Hard Knocks tour, which continues into December.
