Ohio-based hardcore act Beartooth are currently taking on the international festival season with two Allen & Heath dLive Wings set-ups. ‘The size of the C1500 is ideal for travelling, being able to fly with it is amazing and having that much power in two fly cases is perfect for international acts, making their sound consistent all over the world,’ says FOH engineer Danny Harvey.

A&H dLive C1500 at FOH for Beartooth‘I love the way dLive sounds and how easy it is to customise everything. At the bigger festivals I always manage to get positioned front middle on the FOH tent due to the C1500’s small footprint.’

Supplied by V2 Productions for their US dates and Captured Live for shows in Europe, the band’s set-up comprises two dLive C1500 surfaces, paired with two DM48 MixRacks, covering both FOH and monitors. Additionally, the FOH console is equipped with a Waves card, used for multitrack recording and virtual soundchecking.

Harvey makes use of the console’s internal features, including onboard Deep plug-ins: ‘I use the 16T on my drums and groups, 16VU compressor on my vocals and the Dyn8’s multiband compressor on various groups and my main LR – they sound great and help keep the size of our set up down to a minimum as there’s less need for outboard rack FX. I can put all these processors on every channel without needed any extra gear.’

The band have also noticed a consistency in sound across each show and the difference dLive has made, as Harvey explains: ‘When we changed to dLive the band noticed such a change in their IEMs, everything was a lot clearer and having the Deep plug-ins and the multibands on their LR mixes was game changing. All-in-all, dLive is small, powerful, consistent, user friendly and it sounds great.’
