Leeds, UK, (May 4, 2016)—The Gadget Show, broadcast in the UK on Channel 5, recently taped for live stage performances and recordings inside Birmingham’s NEC arena as Gadget Show Live.
An Allen & Heath dLive S7000 surface was used at FOH with a DM48 MixRack, while an S3000 surface and Dante-enabled DM64 MixRack was in place for a full 64-channel multi-track live recording for TV broadcast.
In addition, Allen & Heath’s compact GLD-80 digital mixing desk and ME personal monitoring system also featured, catering for FOH and stage monitoring for Scottish singer-songwriter Nina Nesbitt’s live performance.
Head of audio/FOH engineer Gareth Davies from Midlands-based Centrepiece Productions Ltd commented, “I’ve run all of the audio for Gadget Show Live since its inception seven years ago, and have used a number of different PA systems and consoles over that period. I’d recently been working with an Allen & Heath dLive S7000 console that I’d installed in a church in the West Midlands and had been really impressed with its ease-of-use, deep programmability, the amount of processing power it has for effects, its great Dante integration and so on. When we were planning this year’s event, with the requirement to also deliver multi-track recording for broadcast, I realized dLive would be an ideal solution and both S7000 and S3000 proved perfect for what was a very demanding, multi-faceted project."
