dLive C Class

Firmly established at the leading edge of the new wave of digital consoles, dLive has rapidly earned its reputation for superior audio quality, next generation workflows, stunning FX and faithful processing emulations. dLive C Class presents dLive’s phenomenally powerful XCVI Core, DEEP processing suite and Harmony UI in a compact, portable format, making it the smart choice for corporate AV, multi-purpose venues, houses of worship, theatres and regional rental companies.

dLive C Class remains true to the core dLive design mission to create a digital mixing system that makes the most sophisticated mixing challenges feel elegantly simple. From seasoned audio professional to new recruits, dLive has been crafted to allow the operator to keep their focus on the live mixing experience, not on the mixer.

Now with a thriving ecosystem of apps, software, remote controllers and more, dLive C Class is fully equipped to become the centrepiece of your next project.

dLive C1500

The C1500 is the first rack-mountable control Surface for the dLive MixRack. Packed in a tiny footprint are 12 faders over 6 layers, built-in audio I/O, an audio networking port, a 12″ capacitive touchscreen and the innovative Harmony UI for the fastest workflow in the industry.

Harmony User Interface

Where many digital consoles are still trying to recreate the experience of using an analogue mixer, dLive is a true digital native, drawing on our familiarity with the ubiquitous smartphones and tablets that we all use without thinking. C1500’s 12” capacitive touchscreen feels instantly familiar, responding to every pinch, swipe, drag and drop exactly how you’d expect it to. Bespoke ‘widget’ areas can also be set up on the screens to keep track of scenes, meters, FX and other custom controls. The screen is complemented by a set of rotary controls, allowing the creativity and immediacy of tactile control over key processing functions, working in harmony with the visual feedback displayed on the screen. The high-grip rotary knobs offer precision control, and feature RGB illumination, with colours mapped to functions for instant visual orientation.

Transparent Workflow

The dLive layout is fully customisable, allowing the user to create a mixing interface that reflects their own mental map of the show, or for an installer to set up the surface to match the venue and the experience levels of the operators. Throughout the dLive journey our guiding aim has been to create fast and transparent workflows that allow the operator to focus on the mix, not the mixer. Every input or mix can be assigned to any and every layer, virtual scribble strips allow inputs and mixes to be clearly named and colour coded for at-a-glance navigation. C1500 also provides 19 assignable SoftKeys.
