Allen & Heath’s dLive digital mixing system was recently employed at FOH for a large concert held at Jinhua stadium, Zhejiang Province in China, to promote the cultural relationship between Kyrgyzstan and China.
The 30,000 seater venue hosted a line-up, which included several top artists from both countries, including Asian super stars, Jay Chou, Wilber Pan, Xie Tianxiao and Elva Hsiao. Managed by PA company, Shanghai Jiexin Entertainment Equipment Co. Ltd., the production was technically complex, featuring state-of-the-art stage, lighting and sound systems.
The audio team employed more than 100 line array speakers to create an optimal listening experience. For signal control, a FOH mixing system comprising the new dLive S7000 Control Surface and DM64 MixRack was chosen.
“dLive has very flexible architecture and a quick response, allowing us to save a lot of time during sound check. The bands were very happy with the system,” explains FOH engineer, Chen Dong. “I also like the analogue-style rotary knobs - they are so precise, even beyond my imagination! Also, the built-in Rack FX and vast FX library provide more than enough tools for sound shaping, so I don’t need any additional outboard equipment. dLive really shone with excellent sound, easy-to use features and great reliability.”
