Allen & Heath

Allen & Heath was at the forefront of the first wave of great British mixer companies, starting life at the heart of London’s swinging music scene in 1969. In those early days Allen & Heath hand built mixers for the top bands of the era, including Genesis, Pink Floyd and The Who.

Fast forward to the second decade of the 21st Century and some the artists touring with Allen & Heath desks recently include Bring Me the Horizon, Fifth Harmony and Morrissey. Today’s Allen & Heath range is used and loved by bands, rental companies, installers, houses of worship, DJs, clubs, broadcasters and studios in virtually every country across the globe.

We are proud to design and specify all our mixers here at our headquarters in beautiful Cornwall, UK, with manufacturing split between our UK factory and a production facility in China. Our world class R&D team has kept us at the leading edge of mixing technology and is committed to harnessing the best technologies and materials to give our customers the best possible mixing experience. Many key members of the Allen & Heath team are active sound engineers with years of hands-on experience, and we’re fortunate to have a network of leading audio professionals whose feedback helps to shape our designs to meet our customers’ real-world needs. One of the cornerstones of the company is our shared passion for audio excellence, both in the analogue domain and in our digital systems, where we have won high praise from some of the most discerning ears in the business for the faithfulness of our FX emulations.

MixRacks

The MixRack is the heart of any dLive system. It houses the XCVI processing core complete with audio I/O, control and audio networking ports. It is typically connected to a dLive Surface, but can also be controlled at the same time as or even without a Surface using a laptop or iPad, Allen & Heath IP remotes or third party controllers via TCP/IP.There are different sizes of dLive MixRack available. All feature the same mix engine and can work with the full 128 channels by adding DX expanders or digital sources.

dLive S Class

 

There is something inherently thrilling about live sound. The immediacy of the direct interaction between the performers and the audience, the potential for anything to happen, the need to get it right first time – this is what makes live mixing so addictive. As the demands for more and more I/O and increasingly complex systems grow, there’s a danger of concentrating on the technology rather than the performance. Our design goal for dLive S Class was to create the ultimate mixing system, with plenty of processing and flexibility to handle the most demanding live scenarios, while at the same time giving the engineer intuitive tools to comfortably keep all that power at their fingertips, freeing them to focus on the live mixing experience.
