A collaboration between Allen & Heath and Shure, v1.7 (code named Sennen) has brought monitoring and control of up to 45 Axient Digital, ULX-D and QLX-D Shure wireless systems from a dLive surface. Key wireless information, including mutes, signal level and battery bars, is visible from Bank screens, allowing multiple channels to be monitored at the same time. More detailed information, including RF frequency, device name and peak indicators, can be accessed by selecting the Preamp tab on an individual wireless channel. Receiver gain and mutes can also be controlled direct from the dLive touchscreen, or from a laptop running dLive Director software.

Version 1.7 firmware introduces extended routing and patching options for dLive users to explore. Inputs can now be routed to Matrices for fine-tuning of speaker cluster contributions in larger venues. Mixes can be patched to the PAFL External Input and vice-versa, allowing multiple ways of creating technician chat channels, and mixes can be patched to inputs for advanced processing.

Version 1.7 also supports the recently unveiled Prime I/O modules. Using the very latest converter and component technology, Prime Input and Output modules are designed to harness the full potential of dLive’s 96kHz XCVI FPGA core for critical live, broadcast and studio applications. Prime modules exploit I/O converter technologies optimised for higher sampling rates to provide audiophile transparency without undermining latency or bandwidth.

‘Every one of our software releases is powered by our dLive user community,’ says Allen & Heath Product Manager for dLive, Ben Morgan. ‘dLive v1.7 Sennen delivers a raft of features designed to speed workflow, along with much-requested integration with Shure’s popular wireless systems.’
