Since the introduction of Allen & Heath’s dLive mixing systems, many of Germany’s top artists have taken S Class systems on national and international tours.
Singer-songwriter Joris has toured with a dLive S5000 Surface and DM48 MixRack with Waves V2, with plans to use dLive on his 2017 tour. FOH Engineer Daniel Lauer said: “I use the integrated audio matrix switcher. This feature, and the possibility to integrate Dante, Waves and MADI, is perfect for Joris. Recording, the broadcast connections and the communication with the OB-vans also all run through dLive.”
Cologne band, Brings, toured with dLive including a final stadium gig, using two S7000 Surfaces with DM64 MixRacks and DX32 Expander.
For NENA, Oliver Steinberger employed two S5000/DM48 systems fitted with two Waves network cards.
FOH Engineer, Thorsten Velbinger, travelled with a dLive S5000 Surface and DM48 MixRack with a GLD-80 for monitors on tour with Saxon.
A cappella heavy-metal band, Van Canto, toured with a S5000 and DM48, as well as a GLD-80, whilst Engineer Sascha Kohl used a S7000/DM64 system with Waves and MADI integration for Xavier Naidoo and Rea Garvey.
dLive has also been used on tours for Matthias Reim, Gregorians, Excalibur, Rolf Dressler, Blumentopf and Donots with Toni Loitsch.
