An Allen & Heath dLive digital mixing system comprising an S5000 control surface and DM48 MixRack has recently been installed at St George’s Church, Leeds.
Dating back to 1838, St George’s is a Church of England parish church based in the centre of Leeds, West Yorkshire. And with morning and evening Sunday services and a range of other activities taking place each week, the church is a busy venue.
Given its variety of weekly activities, the church’s PA system needs to offer a high level of flexibility as well as exemplary sound to cope with changing set-ups of musical and spoken content. The mid-sized S5000 control surface allows great versatility and an ability to cater to the church’s constantly changing band line-ups and recording needs.
Replacing an out-dated analogue system, the dLive system presented few issues to the PA team at St George’s, with Ben Hammond (Live Sound and Touring Ambassador for Allen & Heath UK distributor, Audio-Technica) reporting that, “the church sound guys found their feet really quickly with the dLive, despite coming from an analogue set-up. They found it really easy to use and are extremely happy with the flexibility it offers – and the power it delivers in such a small footprint.”
