ID:	205780Allen & Heath digital mixers were once again at the forefront of this year’s South by Southwest Music and Media Conference (SXSW) in Austin, Texas, USA.

    Mixers from across the dLive, GLD and Qu ranges were employed in many participating venues across the city during the six-day event, most notably for the renowned British Music Embassy showcase, which hosted artists including Slaves, Kate Nash and Rag‘n’Bone Man.

    Hosted at the Latitude 30 club, British production company, CATO Music, installed three dLive systems to manage FOH, monitors and broadcast duties for up to 12 bands a day.
    With a new band appearing approximately every 40 minutes, a quick setup and easy navigation for each visiting band engineer were the key system requirements. Secondly, the system needed to provide a multi-track recording feed for the BBC, which broadcasted much of the British Music Embassy programming.

    A dLive S5000 Surface with DM32 MixRack was installed for FOH, digitally split via GigaAce to a DM64 with S3000 for monitors. Also, a new C Class system, comprising the C1500 rackmount Surface and CDM32 MixRack, was employed for system control, continuity, VT, DJ, announcements and the recording and broadcast feed for the BBC via Dante.

    Simon Buckley from Cato Music, commented:
    “The setup we provided meant it only took a few minutes for an engineer to get comfortable with dLive. Everyone was very happy with the intuitive workflow, and exceptional FX and processing options. Combined with the rich audio quality, we ensured a smooth run!”

    Established for over 45 years, Allen & Heath designs and manufactures professional audio mixing consoles for an international clientele in the live sound, installed systems and nightclub markets.

      Almost all bases are covered with the previous answers.

      It all comes down to a 2-mono-focus-setup being a last resort.

      Unfortunately the Brooklyn Prospect Top is almost the same weight as my QSC KW181 Subs. I'm really looking for pole mounted tops over subs. The Yamaha DXR15's are pretty much at the top of my weight limit...

      Mike Bakere is absolutely spot on, there is definite cross talk between Left and Right, make sure the signals have similar gain structures and levels and you can get away with it, great little cheat...
