Leading Malaysian AV rental company, MJ Event Management Sdn Bhd, supplied a large-scale Allen & Heath dLive S Class digital mixing system to manage the spectacular final of the national song contest, Anugerah Juara Lagu (Champion of Songs).



The event, hosted by broadcaster TV3, and watched by 6.1 million viewers, featured performances by the 12 finalists, plus guest appearances. Several of Malaysia’s most prominent audio engineers were enlisted to mix this prestigious event, with Zairi Ariffin at FoH and Jim Teh handling Monitors, supported by Zunun from TV3. The system engineer was Mohamad Firdaues, who has been a leading advocate of dLive in the country.


MJ Event Management specified an Allen & Heath dLive system to mix both FoH and Monitors, and to provide the broadcast feed via an active splitter. The system included a pair of dLive S7000 surfaces running in multi-surface mode with a DM64 MixRack, plus an S5000 surface and DM48 MixRack. System I/O was supplemented by two DX32 expanders. A Waves3 card enabled 128 channel multitrack recording of the performances. Some 30 ME-1 personal mixers were supplied, enabling musicians to control their own monitors.
