British mixer controls Mexican Bulldog

28 April 2009

Mexico - Allen & Heath's new iLive-T digital mixing system was recently evaluated by one of Mexico City's top music venues, the Bull Dog Café. The system - comprising an iDR-32 MixRack and iLive-T80 Control Surface - was road tested for a week, managing combinations of FOH and monitor sound for the venue's busy schedule of events.

During the hectic weekend line up, which featured many of Mexico's up and coming artists, iLive-T was used to mix FOH for headliners Division Minuscula and Simplifires and their support bands, Victimas del Doctor Cerebro and The Dancers. During the week, the system was moved between monitor and FOH position for acts which included girl group, Ha-Ash, Allison and Alicia Villarreal, culminating in Los Amigos Invisibles, where the system mixed monitors.

"Most of the bands had their own engineers, and they all had positive feedback for iLive-T," reports the Bulldog's house engineer, Gustavo. "I mixed several bands with the system and I'm very impressed. I especially like the preamps as they have lots of headroom, and I also like the fact that you can colour code and organise channel strips however you like to work. The most amazing features for me are the amount of processing the system is capable of and the use of only one CAT5 cable to link to the stage."

The Bulldog Café now has an iLive-T system on order.
