Biggsounds gets even bigger with second dLive purchase
AUSTRALIA: Biggsounds Productions, a live sound production company based in New South Wales, has recently added two dLive mixing systems from Alen & Heath to its inventory for live touring and festival work. Having bought its first dLive system – comprising a flagship S7000 control surface and DM64 MixRack – earlier this year, the company returned to the British manufacturer for an additional S5000 and DM32.
In addition to live sound and touring, the company also provides sales and installation services to pro audio, education and worship markets. ‘We committed to dLive for a number of reasons: confidence in the brand from many years of successful touring and return on investment with iLive and Qu series boards; Allen & Heath’s responsiveness to their professional users’ requirements and willingness to adapt the technology to the market; a need to stand out in a competitive market with a board which meets and exceeds rider requirements – 96k as well as both Waves and Dante integration; and a belief that we are mixing on one of the world’s best sounding consoles without over-capitalising in a regional market,’ explained Biggsounds’ Adam Biggs.
‘dLive has impressed us on every level, and with every tour it finds new fans in engineers and artists impressed with the performance and usability. My own crew comment regularly on the difference you can hear and feel with every subtle adjustment. This platform will be our way forward for many years to come,’ Mr Biggs furthered. ‘In a crowded marketplace, with a multitude of prestigious brands competing for market share, A&H has produced a rider-ready system which will provide a serious contender to the old guard.’
