Orange, CA (October 29, 20)—Southern California-based full-service AV and staging company MixOne Sound recently delivered live broadcast mixes of performances by rap rock trio Fever 333 and 10-time Grammy Award-winner Chaka Khan using an Allen & Heath dLive.
“The transition from our previous console platform to A&H was super smooth,” notes MixOne Sound owner Spenser Bishop. “By my second show on dLive, I was totally comfortable; it was a lot easier to jump into than other consoles for sure. This is the first desk we’ve walked up to in a long time where we thought, ‘plenty of horsepower, sounds great, don’t need external FX processing’ and you just get to mixing.”
The MixOne Sound broadcast and control room mix came together on an Allen & Heath dLive S5000 with SuperMADI and Waves cards, a DM64 MixRack with a gigaACE card at the stage and a DX32 modular expander packed with Prime preamps. The house stage mix was powered by four dBTechnologies S118 subwoofers, two IG3T side fills, and a mixture of LVX XM 12 and 15 stage monitors.
“If I had to highlight two features we really loved, I’d go with the onboard SRC and DEEP effects,” adds Bishop. “Whether I have Dante or Waves or I need SuperMADI to do inserts, the desk sees it and handles the sample rate conversions in and out. Nobody else makes it this easy. Perfect for studio and broadcast where we’re seeing a lot of 48 kHz on other devices, but we’re able to keep things at 96 kHz in dLive land. Multiple sample rates and multiple formats at once. Such a stellar feature.”
