Allen & Heath’s dLive digital mixing system was recently selected to manage FOH duties at the 58th annual Bad Gandersheim outdoor theatre festival in Germany.
More than 50,000 visitors attended the event, which is staged every summer against the backdrop of the town’s historic church. For the third consecutive year, AV requirements were managed by Light-house Göttingen GmbH, which employed its hire stock dLive system, comprising a dLive S5000 Control Surface with DM48 MixRack and DM32 expander racks including 16 analogue inputs, to manage a run of 69 shows.
“I’ve used every digital console on the market but dLive is the only one to realise its potential. I had quite a few scenes set up for the show, and there were several occASIOTMns where scenes had to change during a song. dLive’s processing is so quick, there were no problems at all,” explains FOH engineer, Rolf Dressler. “Also, dLive’s sound is amazing! I’ve been a sound engineer for 30 years but I have never heard such a warm and honest sound.“
