The Warehouse Sound Presents Allen & Heath D-Live Product Demonstration Day

UK – Leading pro-audio provider The Warehouse Sound Services is teaming up with  Audio-Technica, the UK exclusive distributor Allen & Heath to showcase their next generation digital mixing system, dLive. 

A free demonstration will take place at Warehouse Sound’s Glasgow Branch on 11th November at 11am. The Warehouse is the only Scottish supplier of the Allen & Heath dLive desks so the event will provide members of the live audio industry a unique opportunity to see the system in action.

The showcase will be hosted by Audio-Technica’s Ben Hammond (FOH engineer for Ugly Kid Joe, You Me At Six, Devin Townsend Project, Skid Row, While She Sleeps, We Are The Ocean). Hammond will spearhead dLive training and demonstration for The Warehouse Sound’s UK customers and engineers providing industry professionals with in-depth training, demonstration and support.

DLive is the next generation digital mixing system providing ultra-flexible architecture, a powerful FPGA processing core, a comprehensive array of expansion, control and networking options, plus the intuitive Harmony user interface with gesture control, meaning dLive is geared to applications from rigorous touring and festivals to installation in prestigious live venues.

Ben Hammond will demonstrate the capabilities of the new dLive consoles. He commented: “The new dLive mixing system is an incredibly exciting new development from Allen & Heath – by far the most powerful live mixer they have ever created. So I’m really pleased to be in a position to demonstrate all it can do to other working engineers over the coming months.”

Janet Murray, director at The Warehouse added: “The capabilities of the mixing system are vast! DLive is equally at home in fixed installations, such as intimate theatre settings, as it is at festivals and big touring shows.

“DLive is one of the best mixing systems I have ever seen! It has all the processing tools and power that top level engineers would  and also has both the flexibility and networkability to cater for any application.

“Not only that, it has an extremely intuitive user interface and an extremely fast workflow.”

DLive has a distributed system design with separate MixRack and Surface. The dLive processing brain is housed in the MixRack, available in three sizes, the DM32, DM48 and DM64, and there are three accompanying control surfaces. All MixRacks and Surfaces are 'mix & match' compatible, with common configuration, set-up and show files. The MixRacks also contain the same processing engine, pioneered by the Allen & Heath R&D team using next generation FPGA technology.

The 96k/96bit XCVI Core provides capacity for 128 inputs with full processing and 16 dedicated stereo FX returns, offering 160 inputs to mix, plus a fully configurable 64 mix bus architecture with full processing on all 64 mix channels. dLive incorporates the DEEP processing portfolio of embedded plugins, including Graphic EQs, Compressors, Multiband Compressors and Dynamic EQs, alongside its 16 slot FX racks, featuring Allen & Heath’s acclaimed range of FX emulations.
