We are working on a new range of option cards for dLive which will take full advantage of the I/O Ports, offering 128ch at 96kHz. However the current range of iLive / GLD option cards can be used with the M-DL-ADAPT interface to provide a digital split ...
Some USB devices which do not meet the USB hardware specification can in certain circumstances cause unexpected behaviour from dLive. "Flat" memory sticks with conductive ends (such as the one pictured below) when inserted at an angle can short out the U...
Sometimes it's useful for the dLive log files to be copied to a USB drive so they can be inspected by a third party. To do this, - Ensure a USB key is inserted in the 'data' USB socket  - Press the hardware "Utility" button (or the Utility soft key i...
dLive offers the ability to record and playback stereo (2-track) audio directly on to a USB device. Supported sample rates for playback are 44.1kHz, 48kHz and 96kHz. The recording format is .WAV 96kHz 24-bit. dLive audio recording requires the USB sto...
Discovery is not part of the AES67 scope. When using equipment with native SAP announcements, such as Dante to Q-LAN the discovery process is straightforward. When connecting devices using differing discovery protocols such as Dante to Ravenna or Livewire...
MixRack Update Procedure via Computer Important: MixRack should not be connected to a surface 1. Download the latest dLive firmware from www.allen-heath.com and save the .zip file. 2. Remove any previous dLive firmware from your USB drive. To do this...
The dLive fibreACE module can operate with both OM3 and OM4 fibre cables. OM3 and OM4 cables are identical in most aspects with the only difference being reduced signal attenuation on the OM4 variant allowing for longer cable runs. A 150m drum of OM3 ca...
The dLive MixRack and Surface support up to 40 TCP connections each. Surface connections include any IP6/IP8, 3 screen apps, and Director (depending on Director mode). The MixRack supports 1 surface connection when running 1.52 or earlier. MixRack con...
The A&H Super Madi (M-DL-SMADI) card supports the use of 4 fibre links. These are presented on SFP sockets, not all MADI over fibre is the same, rather than building the transceiver into the SMADI card and locking you to one type of optical connection, ...
GIGAACE gigaACE is a Gigabit Ethernet point-to-point connection (1000BASE-T, IEEE 802.3ab), Layer 2 compliant. Layer 2 network switches and media converters can be used, provided they support Gigabit Ethernet (1000BASE-T) connections. DX EXPANDERS ...
On dLive, we compensate the bus processing latency so that no matter the internal routing, all signals are phase aligned on the mix outputs. For example: * Input to Group to Mains is aligned with Input to Mains * Group to Aux to Matrix is aligned ...
In some cases it's useful to do a full factory reset of the MixRack. This is done by accessing a set of 4 DIP switches, inside the I/O port on the C Class, or inside Power 2 on the S Class (see photos) * Reset occurs with Switch 1 in ON position and ...
Allen & Heath can provide a range of pre-assembled, approved CAT and fibre cables. Please see here [http://www.allen-heath.com/ahproducts/cat5/] for more information. Recommended Cables for A&H digital mixers Different cables are used with our mixers d...
In some circumstances it may be useful to connect to a MixRack over a WAN connection. dLive Director uses ports 51320 - 51325 UDP AND TCP these should be forwarded by your NAT to the IP address of the dLive.  By default this is 192.168.1.70 and can be ch...
All our apps work across a wide range of modern routers and Access Points. However, we do recommend some key features when choosing your device: * Good wireless coverage (802.11n or 802.11ac with 'beamforming' are recommended) * Dual band wireless f...
Sometimes it may be useful to perform a hard reset on a dLive surface. This will delete all user definable settings on the surface, including but not limited to. - User Profiles - Saved Shows - Saved Libraries  To initiate a hard reset you will need t...
