Turkey (November 1, 2016)—Touring across the country to play venues like the Harbiye Cemil Topuzlu Amphitheatre in Istanbul, Bodrum Amphitheatre and Izmir International Arena, Turkish popstar, Ajda Pekkan recently hit the road with a pair of Allen & Heath’s dLive digital mixing systems in tow.
The shows found Pekkan touring with a 30-strong band, mixed by production manager/FOH Engineer, Inanc Yenidogan, who spec’d two S7000 surfaces and DM64 MixRacks for FOH, monitors and recording.
The band used stereo IEMs plus side fills and mono sub monitor mixes for the drummer and bass player, requiring up to 60 mono auxes. Additional auxes were routed over Dante to the FOH DM64 MixRack as an output expander. All the shows were recorded via M-Dante on a Mac DVS.
“We made the most of the interlinking possibilities of dLive,” said monitor engineer, Wayne Nigel Gittens. “With 30 musicians on stage with high monitor requirements, the FOH rack was partly used as an output expander via Dante.”
