Allen & Heath Unveils Compact dLive C Class Digital Mixers

Allen & Heath has revealed dLive C Class, a new compact range of Surfaces and MixRacks which opens up its dLive platform to a wider spectrum of AV, installation and live event roles.

dLive C Class is founded on XCVI, the same 96kHz FPGA core which drives Allen & Heath’s flagship dLive S Class mixers, and also shares its DEEP processing architecture, allowing class-leading compressors and processing emulations to be embedded directly within the inputs and mix channels. The new range includes the first 19” rack mountable dLive surface, the ultra-compact C1500. 

There are 3 new MixRacks in the series – CDM32, CDM48 and CDM64, plus three new control Surfaces, the 19” rack mountable C1500, C2500 and twin screen C3500. The MixRacks house the 96kHz/96bit XCVI Core, providing capacity for 128 inputs with full processing and 16 dedicated stereo FX returns, plus a fully configurable 64 mix bus architecture, with full processing on all mix channels. Each surface and rack has a 128 channel I/O port, supported by a wide array of networking cards, including Dante, Waves, MADI, fibreACE optical and more. dLive C Class is also compatible with S Class hardware, and the ME personal mixing system and supported by a full ecosystem of apps, Director software, and accessories.
