Top-notch Digital Mixing w/Touchscreen Simplicity
Harnessing the full potential of digital mixing, the Allen & Heath dLive S5000 control surface rejects the typical faux-analog console experience in favor of intuitive pinch, swipe, drag, and drop gestures. Dual 12" touchscreens, 28 faders, and six assignable one-knob/one-function rotary controls provide you with at-a-glance visual feedback and immediate tactile command over your mix. Using the S5000 is a piece of cake, thanks to easily assignable inputs, clearly named virtual scribble strips, and customizable SoftKeys. Built from high-grade metal and packed with dual redundant, hot-swappable power supply capability, the Allen & Heath dLive S5000 control surface performs reliably under the most demanding of circumstances.
Harmony user interface yields incredible tactile control
The Allen & Heath dLive S5000 isn't a digital mixer hiding under an analog-looking surface; it unleashes the full potential of digital, providing you with levels of control that are impossible in an all-analog world. If you've used a smartphone or tablet, you'll find the S5000's pinch, swipe, drag, and drop gestures familiar and incredibly easy to grasp. A dedicated multimode EQ view makes sound shaping as easy as wiggling your fingers. Configurable widget areas provide you with quick access to scenes, meters, effects, and other customizable controls. One-knob/one-function rotary controls and assignable SoftKeys give you immediate control over processing functions.
Incredible at-a-glance visual feedback and transparent workflow
Using the Allen & Heath dLive S5000 is simple. A quick glance at this console tells you everything you need to know. Despite the incredible arsenal of functions available, you won't find yourself lost in complex menus. You don't need to adapt to a different way of working to mix on the S5000. Its layout is completely customizable, so you can create a mixing interface that matches the way you like to work. Every input or mix can be assigned to every bank and/or layer. Virtual scribble strips ensure that all inputs and mixes are clearly named and color coded. And the S5000's screens remain clearly visible in sunny outdoor settings.
dLive systems offer insane levels of expandability
The Allen & Heath dLive S5000, when used in conjunction with MixRacks and expanders, combines to form a powerful and infinitely expandable system. A dLive system is capable of delivering up to a mind-boggling 848 x 848 inputs and outputs, all running at 96kHz. The MixRack is the brain of the system, containing the XCVI core, and is supported by a whole host of surfaces, apps, software, TCP/IP control, and IP remotes, all of which provide different means of controlling the mixer. You get five 128-channel I/O ports that support Dante, Waves SG, ACE, and MADI, along with DX32 modular I/O expanders and full compatibility with ME personal mixing systems. At Sweetwater, we've found that dLive systems are flexible enough to tackle any mixing challenge that we throw at them.
Durable high-grade metal construction
The Allen & Heath dLive S5000 is built like a tank. In fact, Allen & Heath's lead mechanical designer used to be a tank commander. The S5000 boasts the optimal balance between strength and weight, with higher-grade metal on the sides and folded steel at key points to safeguard it against the rigors of the road. A dual redundant hot-swappable power supply capability offers amazing reliability. Every audio connection is also dual-redundant. With the S5000, you're guaranteed worry-free operation, by virtue of its rugged design.
