The Events Centre upgrades with dLive
AUSTRALIA: Performing arts and conference facility, The Events Centre, has upgraded its audio system with the installation of Allen & Heath’s dLive digital mixer. The centre boasts two theatres and dining spaces, using high tech staging and presentation equipment for large and small events. As a result, the audio requirements are demanding and the facility was in need of a new solution. The installation at the 1,000-seat Sunshine Coast venue included a dLive S3000 control surface with DM32 MixRack and accompanying DX32 expander racks.
‘The centre had auditioned most of the big name consoles and we had pretty much decided on the way forward when dLive came into the picture,’ explained David Cartledge, senior audio and vision engineer at the facility. ‘dLive had astounding audio quality and incredible headroom. It left everything else behind and the choice became very simple. The flexibility of this system allows us to drop DX32 expanders wherever we want them, which is an enormous advantage. We are very impressed.’
