Fronted by New Zealand-American Ruban Nielson, psychedelic rockers Unknown Mortal Orchestra have set out on a mammoth world tour with veteran engineer Dave McDonald and an Allen & Heath dLive system at FOH.

The band’s set-up includes a dLive S Class system, usually comprising an S5000 or S7000 surface and DM MixRack, with a Dante card for live recording. ‘I like the ability to work at 96kHz sampling and thanks to this, I have a much wider signal spectrum and greater depth in the mix,’ says McDonald, who has been using dLive for a number of years.

‘I’ve been working on Allen & Heath consoles for approximately six or seven years,’ he confirms. ‘Initially I was a bit sceptical, but now dLive is always my first choice console – it enables extremely intuitive work, almost like an analogue desk.

‘dLive includes a variety of plug-ins, from those emulating old studio equipment, up to the latest virtual blocks,’ he continues. ‘The Deep processing I use for the mix really feels like the original units I used on records in the studio, not only do they sound great, they look great.’

The band have already performed dates across Europe including several major festivals and sold-out shows, and are set to hit UK shores in November. With just under 30 shows left to go, the rest of the tour will be in support of their new instrumental album IC-01 Hanoi, released in October.
