Allen Heath DLIVE DM64 S Class MixRack 64x32 I/O Digital Stage Box

dLive DM64

Of all the dLive system, the MixRack is the heart of it. Within of this Allen Heath dLive DM64 S Class MixRack is built with the XCVI processing core complete with control and audio networking ports and audio I/O. It can be also controlled at the same time as or even without a Surface using a laptop or iPad, third party controllers via TCP/IP and Allen & Heath IP remotes, and it is typically connected to a dLive Surface.

This dLive MixRack have 3 different sizes available. Featuring the same mix engine and just makes some difference in the number of analogue I/O. All dLive MixRacks models by adding digital sources or DX expanders, can work with the full 128 channels or patching digital sources.


Crafted, enhanced and pioneered by the Allen & Heath R&D team using the next generation technology, the power and capabilities of dLive radiates from the XCVI Core with 36 parallel virtual processing cores producing power capable for 160x64 channels of processing at 96kHz sampling rate. The FPGA router has capacity capable for 3000 x 3000 audio paths, while the Six paralle mixing engines, calculate over 10000 cross points per sample, inside the Core. The XCVI's incredible power (25 billion operations per second) capable of making the dLive to deliver 128 full processing inputs and 16 stereo FX returns, variable bit depth for ultimate precision and noise performance, a configurable 64 bus architecture, thanks to a 96bit accumulator for a virtually infinite mix headroom, and class-leading latency at an ultra-low 0.7ms.

DEEP Processing

Directly inside the dLive's input and mix channels, is where, our DEEP processing architecture which houses class-leading compressors and processing emulations. Graphic EQs, a 64 channel Automatic Mic Mixer(AMM) and Compressors - this array of bespoke algorithms can be inserted on the fly without burning FX slots and without the setup, licence hassle and latency associated with external plug-ins - meaning, that when you need them wherever or whenever they're right there. Audio nuances and non-linear ballistics of industry classics, various RMS detection, ranging from a Slow-Opto model and soft knew circuits, can be captured by the compressor models through to super-fast peak and RMS limiting/compression devices.

RackExtra FX

The RackExtra FX portfolio combines the pristine quality and wide choice offered by boutique plug-ins with the convenience and low latency of onboard processing. It’s no secret that we have a passion bordering on obsession for crafting painstakingly faithful emulations of the most revered analogue outboard equipment. Drawing on the power of the XCVI Core, we have built hugely potent DSP kernels within the FPGA, allowing us to integrate our proven library of reverb, delay and modulator algorithms into dLive, with 16 FX slots available, each with a dedicated stereo return.

Automatic Mic Mixer (AMM)

AMM provides automatic level control of up to 64 microphones for spoken word applications such as conferences, panel shows, discussion forums and government / council meetings. As well as reducing the risk of feedback, legibility is enhanced by minimising phase interference between channels, a common problem in multi-microphone spoken word applications. Up to 4 zones can be enabled allowing automatic control of multiple rooms simultaneously from one interface.

Two modes of operation, NOM & D-Classic, are included:

D-Classic utilises dynamic gain sharing and is quick and easy to set-up.

NOM (Number of Open Microphones) builds on the logic based automatic mixing algorithm of our iDR install range offering additional parameters and maximum flexibility to the operator.

Built To Endure

Maybe it’s no coincidence that our lead mechanical designer on the dLive project used to be a tank commander. All dLive consoles have been designed to deliver the optimal balance between strength and weight, employing higher grade metal on the sides and folded steel at key points for added rigidity. Not only does every console, MixRack and expander have dual power supply slots for redundancy, but we’ve also employed the same rugged, hot-swappable PSU design across the range for maximum peace of mind and minimum inventory. Dual redundancy is also built into every audio connection throughout the system. We have also paid particular attention to console illumination, conducting rigorous trials to ensure that dLive excels in the sunny, outdoor settings where many digital consoles become almost unusable.
