Dutch public broadcaster NPO has selected Allen & Heath’s dLive S Class and ME digital mixing systems to manage the 3FM On Stage live radio program.
Allen & Heath’s dLive manages the live radio, floor sound and several feeds for live internet streaming of the radio show, which includes performances from live bands, and incorporates visual clips.
According to the company, the set up comprises a S5000 and DM64 with DX32 expander rack. The system is fitted with MADI and Waves network cards, with an IP8 remote controller and a ME personal monitoring system, including 6 ME-1 mini mixers, for monitoring the bands. dLive is configured to provide three different mixes going to the DJ desk, and dlive communicates with the DHD radio mixer via Dante.
“As a fanatical iLive user, I was pleased to get the opportunity to purchase the dLive and ME systems. The learning curve was only about one hour!” said Elwin Dorlas, manager of the On Stage radio show.
“As I need to do a lot of mixing in a short period of time, dLive’s low latency and intuitive layout are key. I love the new FX, compressors and pre-amp modelling, and the I/O patching is spot on. The integration of the ME monitor system completes it for me, and the musicians love the level of control it offers them.”
Established more than 45 years ago, Allen & Heath designs and manufactures professional audio mixing consoles in the live sound, installed systems and nightclub markets.
