Allen & Heath will be highlighting some of its ultra-compact dLive touring systems at Prolight + Sound.
The company will be presenting from hall 8, booth G50.
Currently in use with many international touring artists, such as Accept and Sigrid, dLive Wings systems have become popular for compact touring. Central to the dLive Wings concept is the compact C1500 surface, which allows engineers to manage upscale shows from a 19” console, using its 12” touchscreen, 19 assignable SoftKeys and 12 faders over six layers. Paired with any of the dLive MixRacks, the C1500 is ideal for fly-dates, bus tours, and support slots.
For an even more compact option, the company will also be showing a surfaceless dLive system, with a pair of touchscreens running dLive Director software controlling the MixRack and headphone/PFL feed over Dante. These surfaceless systems are often paired with Allen & Heath’s IP8 and IP6 controllers, and/or the MixPad App for more control options.
“Going from a 36 fader surface to a 12 fader C1500 or a touchscreen can seem daunting at first,” commented Ben Morgan, dLive product manager at Allen & Heath. “But with a bit of planning and smart use of SoftKeys, it’s amazing how quickly engineers embrace the Wings concept and the freedom it brings. I hope we can encourage more people to explore the potential of ultra-compact touring at Prolight + Sound.”
“From the moment we first introduce dLive Wings to any engineer, they just ‘get it’,” said Léon Phillips, Live Sound and Touring with Allen & Heath. “Here’s a flexible, compact rig, with the same power as all our dLive systems, but easily checked in at baggage and flown on a standard commercial flight. There’s nothing else quite like it.”
Allen & Heath will also be showing its Qu and ZED ranges, plus visitors will be able to get hands-on with its “mixers of the moment”, the SQ series, complete with optional DEEP processing plugins.
