Now with a thriving ecosystem of apps, software, remote controllers and more, dLive C Class is fully equipped to become the centrepiece of your next project.

Harmony User Interface

Where many digital consoles are still trying to recreate the experience of using an analog mixer, dLive is a true digital native, drawing on our familiarity with the ubiquitous smartphones and tablets that we all use without thinking. C1500’s 12” capacitive touchscreen feels instantly familiar, responding to every pinch, swipe, drag and drop exactly how you’d expect it to. Bespoke ‘widget’ areas can also be set up on the screens to keep track of scenes, meters, FX and other custom controls. The screen is complemented by a set of rotary controls, allowing the creativity and immediacy of tactile control over key processing functions, working in harmony with the visual feedback displayed on the screen. The high-grip rotary knobs offer precision control, and feature RGB illumination, with colors mapped to functions for instant visual orientation.

Transparent Workflow

The dLive layout is fully customizable, allowing the user to create a mixing interface that reflects their own mental map of the show, or for an installer to set up the surface to match the venue and the experience levels of the operators. Throughout the dLive journey, our guiding aim has been to create fast and transparent workflows that allow the operator to focus on the mix, not the mixer. Every input or mix can be assigned to any and every layer, virtual scribble strips allow inputs and mixes to be clearly named and color-coded for at-a-glance navigation. C1500 also provides 19 assignable SoftKeys.
