The dLive ecosystem spawns new life

The dLive ecosystem spawns new life

Published:

With the introduction of the IP6 and IP8 remote controllers, Waves V3 and gigaACE audio networking cards, Allen & Heath aims to widen the flexibility of its dLive ecosystem.

The IP6 and IP8 interface with the mixing system via standard TCP/IP connections. They can be networked with other controllers, computers and third party devices using a standard Ethernet infrastructure. The products are reportedly designed to give users more diverse control options, allowing for use in a range of applications.

Additionally, the IP6 supplies six push and turn rotary encoders and colour LCD displays, 19 programmable soft keys and mic stand mounting options, while the IP8 delivers eight motorised faders and colour LCD displays and 23 programmable soft keys. Both can be configured with up to six layers and support PoE/PoE+ respectively, giving users a single Cat-5 cable for control and power.

The Waves V3 audio networking card provides a 128x128 channel, 48/96kHz interface to the Waves SoundGrid platform, offering the ability to record 128 tracks of 96kHz audio over a single Cat cable.

Meanwhile, the gigaACE card offers a 128x128 channel 96kHz point-to-point redundant link to another dLive mixing system, and does not require a PC.

Away from dLive, Allen & Heath has launched a new performance DJ mixer, the Xone:PX5. The 4+1-channel unit is designed to deliver the manufacturer’s Xone analogue audio format while making use of digital connectivity and performance-focused FX processing technology. It includes a Xone VCF filter and a new internal Xone:FX engine, with three-band total kill EQ on each of the four channels. A 2-channel USB soundcard is also included with PX5 and provides Xone:Sync and Midi integration.

The FX engine is equipped with a Xone:Xcite library of performance-focused FX that A&H has developed especially for the PX5. This, the manufacturer states, is ‘coupled with familiar hands-on controls for instant, instinctive operation’. Also featured is a hybrid FX mode that supplies advanced FX processing by combining internal and external send and return FX. The Xone filter system brings HPF, BPF, LPF, resonance control and frequency sweep as well as the ability to route external return and aux channel to the filter.

The 20-channel soundcard is complaint with Mac and allows five channels to be streamed from the performance software to the mixer, while the Xone:Sync engine boasts a range Midi clock options that facilitate the connection of external software and hardware. A&H has also included ‘plug n’ play connection’ to the X:Link, which is accessed via the Xone:K series controllers.
