Experidance’s repertoire includes musicals, live orchestral events and theatre productions, and the team was looking for an ultra-flexible digital mixing system to replace the incumbent FOH and monitor consoles. After evaluation, they selected two dLive systems, comprising S5000 and S7000 Surfaces, with DM32 and DM48 MixRacks. Experidance’s touring PA also includes an L-Acoustics Line Array system and a wide selection of premium microphones.
In most scenarios, the company is using the system as a traditional FOH and Monitor split via ACE for big orchestra shows but the system is also versatile, and can be installed in different locations functioning as two separate FOH mixing systems, using the dLive Director app to mix monitors. The recent introduction of the Waves3 card and IP remote controllers will further expand Experidance’s system.
“Basically, dLive enables us to cover audio requirements across our spectrum of live shows from a small corporate event, where the sound crew must be ‘invisible’, to a big orchestral production,” comments chief FOH engineer, Bertalan Kupcsik. “In the very first moment that we used dLive, we could hear the audio quality. The learning curve was also extremely small, and within 4 hours we had 8 of our most popular shows programmed into the system.”
