Touring Consoles

LARGE-FORMAT DIGITAL CONSOLES


ALLEN & HEATH DLIVE S7000


Allen & Heath’s dLive, a next generation digital mixing system, providing ultra-flexible architecture, a powerful FPGA processing core, a comprehensive array of expansion, control and networking options, plus the intuitive Harmony user interface with gesture control, means dLive is geared to applications from rigorous touring and festivals to installation in prestigious live venues. The dLive Surfaces come in a choice of three sizes – the S3000, S5000 and S7000. The S7000 is the largest control Surface in the dLive family, with a whopping 216 assignable fader strips. It features 36 faders over 6 layers, dual 12″ capacitive touchscreens and the innovative Harmony UI for the fastest workflow in the industry.

The single or twin 12” capacitive touchscreens on the dLive consoles, respond to every pinch, swipe, drag and drop exactly as expected. Bespoke ‘widget’ areas can also be set up on the screens to keep track of scenes, meters, FX and other custom controls. The screen is framed by a set of one knob / one function rotary controls, allowing the creativity and immediacy of tactile control over key processing functions, working in harmony with the visual feedback displayed on the screen. The rotary knobs have been prototyped 20+ times to achieve optimal grip and precision control, and feature RGB illumination, with colours mapped to functions for instant visual orientation.

The dLive layout is fully customisable, allowing the user to create a mixing interface that matches his own mental map of the show. Every input or mix can be assigned to any and every bank and / or layer, virtual scribble strips allow inputs and mixes to be clearly named and colour coded for at-a-glance navigation, and the engineer has no less than 26 assignable SoftKeys at their disposal, plus 3 pages of 6 assignable rotaries per screen.

Main Features include:

• 36 faders
• Fully assignable layout – 216 fader strips
• Harmony UI integrates screen and wrap-around controls
• 26 assignable SoftKeys
• Engineer’s Wedge and IEM fader strips
• Daylight visibility
• 8 XLR mic/line in, 8 XLR line out
• 2 digital st AES3 in, 3 digital st AES3 out
• Dual redundant, hot swappable power supply

AVID S6L

VENUE has long been one of the most popular live mixing systems in the world. And now the legacy continues with VENUE | S6L. The new Venue S6L range features three modular consoles - S6L-32D, S6L-24D and S6L-24, with mixing desks equipped with touch screens and network connection, a choice of two audio engines, an I/O Rack, Venue and Pro Tools software and plug-ins for over 300 channels of processing. The S6L-32D is Avid’s largest live digital console in the VENUE series. The S6L is available in 24-and 32-channel versions.

The modular, scalable, touchscreen-based interface, offers tight integration with the company’s Pro Tools DAW and MediaCentral management/distribution platform is based around the E6L live sound engine, designed to handle large channel and plug-in counts while providing low latency and 96 Hz processing.

The new system is based around a number of varied components, allowing users to build configurations that best fit their needs.

Main Features include:

• High-resolution
• Daylight-visible touchscreens and OLED displays
• Flagship S6L-32D provides 32 + 2 faders, 96 assignable knobs, an integrated Master Touchscreen, and three integrated Channel Touch Modules.
• S6L-24D, offers 24 + 2 faders, 64 assignable knobs, an integrated Master Touchscreen, and a pair of integrated Channel Touch Modules.
• Finally the S6L-24 fields 24 + 2 faders, 64 assignable knobs and an integrated Master Touchscreen.

DIGICO SD10

With the SD Ten, DiGiCo has pushed the boundaries of digital mixing, producing a console that boasts features and benefits that instantly distinguish it from others in the SD Series. A large 15 inch, touch sensitive screen provides both information and fast control of all the main parameters.

The control surface features 37 100mm touch sensitive faders, providing fast access to the console’s large number of channels, which include 96 with full processing, 12 of which can be configured as full Flexi Channels - and outputs that can be assigned across the surface. All inputs have dual mono inputs for fast ‘Main’ and ‘Alt’ channel switching.

Standard output channel processing includes output delay; eight bands of parametric EQ (previously only seen on the SD7); compressor and gate; dual insert points; groups with buss to buss routing, plus Auxes that have direct talk to output with dim control.

Main Features include:

• Second-generation Optocore optic connections. Just like the SD7, an SD Ten can connect to up to 14 SD or D-Rack IDs with 448 audio channels on a single redundant optical loop.
• Five redundant consoles can share all inputs from the stage racks, and out puts on the system can be assigned in blocks of eight. For example, a single rack can provide 56 inputs to both consoles with 40 of the outputs assigned to the monitor console and 16 used by Front of House for feeds back to the stage.
• One console can even directly route outputs to another console on the loop, for convenient tie lines.
• D-Rack, SD-Rack, SD7 and SD Ten can operate together at 96khz. The audio advantage here is clear, but also means just over 1ms of latency when routing a stage input through a channel and buss, with processing back to a stage output.
• Sound Grid Waves can be added, allowing full connection and control of a Waves Sound Grid, providing low latency plugins on a floating point digital console.
• Connectivity to the outside world isn’t restricted to just the D-Rack and SD-Rack. The SD Ten comes with different I/O options because tailored DiGiCo systems and complex set ups are completely user configurable.

CADAC CDC SEVEN

The CDC seven takes the CDC six format, Cadac’s best-selling digital console, a step further by providing dual screens, increasing the number of faders to 36 and expanding the input count to 96. It still retains the incredible ease of use with the minimal learning curve of the CDC six, along with its 56 busses, of which 48 are configurable, but provides the user with the luxury of an expanded physical user interface.

All 36 faders on the CDC seven feature stereo metering, with a full colour user definable OLED display above the fader to make channel identification fool proof. Due to the impact of the latency inherent with existing audio protocols Cadac designed its own - MegaCOMMS, a digital audio network developed to meet the increasing performance demands of live sound.

Hardware Summary:

• Intuitive, clear graphical user interface
• Proprietary DSP mix platform
• 32/40 bit floating point SHARC processors
• Dual 23.5” flush mounted 16:9 high definition LCD touch wide screen
• 6.5” LCD touch screen for system control

• 20 segment stereo channel metering
• 36 touch sensitive 100mm motorised faders
• 64 x 64 Waves SoundGrid interface
• 4 AES3 inputs and 4 AES3 outputs
• 8 fully programmable line inputs and outputs
