Lebanese rental firm, QDB, recently purchased Allen & Heath’s dLive digital mixing system to add to its hire stock, making it the first PA company in the country to invest in the new system.
Supplied by Seebeck Audio through Allen & Heath’s distributor, PAXT, the system comprised the flagship S7000 Control Surface and DM64 MixRack fitted with a Waves networking card.
“We were in need of a large format digital console, and after a long and extensive search we were introduced to the dLive system by Seebeck Audio. Like any sound company, our main concern is sound quality and Allen & Heath deliver that quality effortlessly. ‘Open’ and ‘crystal clear’ are the two phrases that describe dLive’s sound quality to me,” explains Mr Samer Atallah, General Manager/Sound Engineer at QDB. “The first thing I noticed about the system is that the build quality is amazing - it’s rock solid! The surface design is great, giving a feeling of control when you stand in front of it. Managing inputs and outputs, from patching to customising 64 busses between mono and stereo, is very easy, and the dedicated knobs for EQ and dynamics are very useful. dLive is very fast to setup and run, and as you start using the copy, paste, and GEQ shortcut buttons, you realise how is it perfectly designed for live sound.”
