dLive Manages Brazilian Country Music Festival


An Allen & Heath dLive digital mixing system was used at FOH for Brazil’s annual Villa Mix festival, which takes place annually in Manaus.

Supplied by PA company, Barra Som, the festival showcases ten of the country’s top country music artists, staged in the city’s huge Sambadrone. The system comprised the flagship S7000 Control Surface and DM64 MixRack.

“It was very important that we had one system to manage the whole event, to eliminate any complexities with changing over systems,” said William Souza Ribeiro, the System Engineer from Barra Som. “dLive did not disappoint. It delivers a big performance, with great headroom and clarity. dLive presents a new level of sound quality – it’s amazing! And with the AES3 outputs at a 96kHz sample rate, the processing capacity is astonishing.”
