The purchase of an Allen & Harris (A&H) Wings mixing system by Pennsylvania metal band August Burns Red) played dividends on their latest tour, according to sound engineer Chris Pollock. 

He says the system, comprising a dLive C1500 console, a DM32 MixRack and two Waves V3 cards, allowed him to carry out a virtual soundcheck and process both front-of-house (FOH) and monitors separately on the same desk.

“A huge selling point of dLive for August Burns Red was the scalability of the system,” says Pollock. “We’re able to handle all of our monitoring and FOH needs on one MixRack and 12 fader surface. They were so impressed with the consistency of the mixes and the convenience of the virtual soundcheck that we ordered our own dLive system.

“We can drop it into a couple of cases, check onto any flight and go anywhere in the world with it.”

The band are playing venues including The Depot (cap. 1,200) in Salt Lake City,  the Town Ballroom (950) in Buffalo, New York, and Albuquerque’s Sunshine Theater (1,000).
