With an array of supporting musicians including guitarist Al Di Meola, provision for a live DVD and the need to record audience ambience, sound engineer Robert Boim needed an desk with unlimited mixing possibilities and ease of use, for the 50th anniversary concert by singer Leonid Agutin.

He chose to use the dLive series of consoles by British manufacturer Allen & Heath for the concert, held at Moscow’s Olympic Stadium (cap. 30,000).

“dLive was an obvious choice for this show,” says Boim. “It has superb sound, a fast, simple interface, very low latency and unlimited routing options. I’ve stopped using all external dynamic processing plugins – now I keep all dynamic processing inside the system and my mix is even better.”

He used a dLive S7000 for front-of-house (FOH), with an S3000 as a dedicated FOH surface for the guest artistes’ engineers.

Monitors were controlled by two C2500 surfaces, located either side of the stage, handling mixes for the musicians, orchestra and choir. Additionally, each console was accompanied by a laptop running dLive Director for further control options.
