Rising UK singing star Clare Maguire recently undertook a tour of the UK carrying a dual Allen & Heath iLive digital mixing system to manage FOH and monitors.

Rented in part from PA company SRD Group, the system featured an iLive-80 Control Surface and an iDR0 miniRack at FOH, digitally split from an iDR-48 Mix Rack and an iLive-R72 Control Surface monitor position.

“I think it’s a great sounding desk with so much headroom. I mix pretty loud and I tried really hard to run the outputs into distortion but I failed!,” said FOH engineer, Chris Fillery. “The parametric EQ is great and musical. I also enjoy the choice of compressor types, it’s nice to have elements which help you add a bit of character to the mix. The FX are excellent – the reverbs sound really good and the ADT and sub bass synthesis are well thought-out.”

Fillery used the iLive-80 control surface with additional control provided through the MixPad iPad app.

“Having the compact surface and iPad was really useful for the size of the tour venues, which were 300-600 capacity,” he said. “Plus, being able to check and adjust your mix anywhere in the venue is amazing. I also love the RTA on the graphic for whatever channel you have solo’ed – it’s genius!”
