Granite City Events Invest in dLive

A.C. Entertainment Technologies has supplied Allen & Heath’s flagship dLive S7000 digital mixing console to Aberdeen-based production company, Granite City Events, for use on live music events, festivals and theatre productions.

The sale, which also included an Allen & Heath DM48 mix rack, was handled by Steve Eaton, Sales Executive in the company’s dedicated Audio sales division. Barry Sherriffs, Granite City Director, commented: “After various discussions with, plus help and advice from Steve, we decided the dLive was the way forward. The versatility of dLive, plus the speed of the system, made it perfect for the range of live productions we are involved with. It has been the ideal console! We have used several visiting engineers on events, who have also found the layout and feature-set of the desk ideal.”

dLive, Allen & Heath’s premium console family, is designed with a range of features specifically for professional touring, broadcast, theatres and events, hire, corporate markets, and prestige installations. Including an original intuitive user touchscreen interface, 128 input channels with full processing, configurable 64 bus architecture, DEEP processing, powerful embedded plugins, and 16 RackExtra FX with dedicated stereo returns. dLive is available in a variety of control surface frame sizes and Mixrack I/O, but all with the same processing power and channel/buss count.

AC-ET’s Steve Eaton concluded: “Granite City are a great events and hire company that we work very closely with. The dLive’s touring class quality, feature set and very attractive pricing made it the perfect console for them.”
