Veterans of pop and reggae festivals around the world, Hawaiian roots ensemble The Green recently brought their dub-orientated grooves to Colorado’s 9,000-capacity Red Rocks Amphitheatre, supported by a duo of Allen & Heath dLive S Class consoles. Denver-based IPG Tech provided two dLive S5000 Control Surfaces and two DM48 MixRacks for the gig, equipped with fibreACE and Dante audio networking cards to cover FOH and monitor mixing and multitrack recording duties.

dLive S5000FOH engineer Matt Lawrence specified dLive, with its reliability and internal dynamics and effects processing in mind: ‘I’ve mixed on dLive all around the world and never had issues,’ he says. ‘With the new Deep OptTronik [2A-style compression] through a huge PA with five-part harmonies on vocals, you can’t beat the sound and feel. The Deep 16T was also a go-to compressor and found its way onto a number of channels in a reggae setting like this.’

Of mixing at such an iconic venue, he adds: ‘The reverberation off of the rocks and the crazy night sky and the vibe of the show certainly took things to another level for sure.’

‘The desk is super intuitive and it was exactly how you’d want a show to go,’ notes System Audio Technician, Lee Putnam. ‘Being able to use dLive Director software before the show to get the design and layout of the desks set in advance is such a time-saver. I also love the peace of mind of having redundant links and power supplies with dLive S Class, especially in a complex outdoor environment like Red Rocks.’

‘I dug in on drums and vocals with quite a number of effects,’ Monitor engineer Ross Chergosky adds. ‘It was so nice not having to worry about running out of processing and spaces for in-ear mixes all with compression and gates across the board. From the monitor mixing perspective, things can get wacky really quickly with layers of processing in other consoles and systems.’
