Renowned Brazilian band, Santa Maria, recently upgraded its touring FOH mixer to an Allen & Heath iLive digital system.

The band is famed throughout Brazil,and has been performing for nearly 30 years.

“We have been using Allen & Heath’s analogue consoles for the last 15 years and have always enjoyed their sound quality and durability,” explains Santa Maria´s art and musical director, André Zampieri.

A&H’s Brazilian distributor, Libor, introduced Zampieri to iLive, who decided to try out an iLive-T112 Control Surface and iDR-48 MixRack at FOH.

"I fell in love with iLive the first time I used it,” exclaims Zampieri. “We´ve been using the system for several months now with great results. iLive gives us high quality audio with a flexible design that combines the conveniences of the digital world, such as the use of an iPhone, iPad or LapTop with an analogue touch. We´ve visited many venues on tour and all the house engineers have given us very good feedback, and comment on how intuitive iLive is to use.”
