Allen & Heath’s dLive digital mixing system has been out on tour with German band Brings, culminating in a concert at the 50,000-capacity Cologne football stadium.
Celebrated as a homecoming gig for the Cologne-based group, with support from three local bands, the setup for the concert included two dLive systems, several expanders, and digital splits for the monitor console and an OB van for live streaming and recording.
The dLive system comprised S7000 Control Surfaces with DM64 MixRacks and DX32 expander racks. A MADI network card was fitted in the MixRack, as well as a Dante card provided for the support acts, who were using a GLD-80.
FOH Engineer for Brings, Georg Ganser, spoke highly of the dLive system, describing the design as “perfect, easy to arrange and also to operate”.
He continued: “I’ve always had the impression that everybody at Allen & Heath knows their job and they know how live mixing works. All in all it’s five stars for A&H and for the super support of Audio-Technica Germany.”
