Zara Larsson tours with scalable dLive mixing system25 July 2017
Swedish pop star Zara Larsson is currently on tour with a dLive mixing system from Allen & Heath to manage FOH and monitor sound.
PA company Parashoot provided an interchangeable dLive system with S and C Class units to cater for full concert and fly-in festival productions.
Monitor engineer Sebastian Meyer said: “From experience, I know that dLive is trustworthy, and the fact that Parashoot was able to support us with a fly-in option meant dLive was the right choice for this tour.”
The dLive system comprises a S7000 Surface with DM64 MixRack for monitors, and a S5000 Surface with DM48 MixRack at FOH, which can be swapped for the ultra-compact C1500 Surface for any fly-in dates. There are also two GigaACE network cards and two FibreACE cards to provide added flexibility, and a Dante card for live recording.
“The fact that we can use whatever multi the venue or festival is running with the different card options is amazing. And with the Dante card, I can easily do multitrack recordings, and virtual soundcheck so I can tweak the mixes when there’s no time for a proper soundcheck,” concluded Meyer.
