LIVE SOUND (+STREAMING)
The DM7 series keeps system design simple with Dante—even live sound systems with multiple consoles. Each piece of equipment is connected with thin, lightweight Ethernet cables. The Port to Port function is used to turn the local inputs of the DM7 for the monitors into a stage box for connecting other mixers via Dante to cut down on equipment. The gain compensation function makes it possible to adjust the levels from each console. Also, installing the bundled Steinberg Nuendo Live software on computers connected via Dante facilitates live recordings.
The DM7 series features a Theatre Package, a controller with physical controls, and two differently sized consoles that give engineers and venues the ability to create their ideal systems.
In the system shown here, the engineer uses AFC Image, utilizing the DM7-EX panner for smooth control of the hall’s immersive sound. All equipment is connected via Dante, and ProVisionaire Control can be used for control.
A DM7 installed in the FOH booth can be used in split mode to turn it into a combination FOH-monitor mixer and put together a range of Scenes individually. MonitorMix can be used to give artists the power to adjust their own monitors to their liking. The HA, Naming, and Fader Assist functions offer help and save time when less-experienced volunteers are at the controls.
Control and monitoring of I/O and DZR speakers can be performed directly on the mixer, centralizing system management.
The DM7 Compact all-in-one mixer is the perfect size for conferences, talks, and other events that require unobtrusive systems that fit into small spaces. The DM7 Compact has inputs for up to 16 mics, and the Dan Dugan Automixer on the channel strip can be used to optimize the balance for lecturers’ and announcers’ microphones.
