New York, NY (January 9, 2017)—Allen & Heath will debut dLive C Class, a new compact range of Surfaces and MixRacks at the NAMM Show in Anaheim, CA next week.

Intended to make the dLive platform more applicable to a variety of AV, installation and live event uses, dLive C Class is founded on XCVI, the same 96 kHz FPGA core which drives Allen & Heath’s flagship dLive S Class mixers, and also shares its DEEP processing architecture, allowing compressors and processing emulations to be embedded directly within the inputs and mix channels.

There are three new MixRacks in the series – CDM32, CDM48 and CDM64—plus three new control Surfaces, the 19-inch rack mountable C1500, C2500 and twin screen C3500. The MixRacks house the XCVI Core, providing capacity for 128 inputs with full processing and 16 dedicated stereo FX returns, plus a fully configurable 64 mix bus architecture, with full processing on all mix channels.

Each surface and rack has a 128-channel I/O port, supported by an array of networking cards, including Dante, Waves, MADI, fibreACE optical and more. dLive C Class is also compatible with S Class hardware, and the ME personal mixing system and supportedwith apps, Director software and accessories.

The C Class Surfaces employ the dLive Harmony UI, offering gesture touch control via 12-inch capacitive screens allied to color-mapped rotary controls. Due to dLive’s design architecture, it is also possible to mix ‘surfaceless’, using a MixRack with a laptop or tablet for control.

dLive C Class systems are expected to range from $6500 for a CDM32 MixRack up to $21500 for a CDM64 + C3500.
