dLive DM48 MixRack - 48 mic/line in, 24 line out

Order Code: dLive-DM48

MixRack is the heart of any dLive system. DM48 has 128 x 64 I/O capabilities, with physical I/O comprising 48 mix/line inputs via XLR, 24 line outputs via XLR, plus ME-1 port, 3 x I/O Ports and 1 x PSU.

DM48 houses the XCVI processing core, complete with audio I/O, control and audio networking ports. It is typically connected to a dLive Surface, but can also be controlled at the same time as or even without a Surface using a laptop or iPad, Allen & Heath IP remotes or third party controllers via TCP/IP.

There are 3 sizes of dLive MixRack available (DM48 is the 'medium' size). All feature the same mix engine and differ only in the number of analogue I/O. All models can work with the full 128 channels by adding DX expanders or patching digital sources.

XCVI Core:
The power of dLive emanates from the XCVI Core, with 36 parallel virtual processing cores generating enough power for 160×64 channels of processing at 96kHz sampling rate.

Six parallel mixing engines within the Core calculate over 10,000 cross points per sample, while the FPGA router has capacity for 3,000 x 3,000 audio paths.

The massive power of XCVI (25 billion operations per second) allows dLive to deliver 128 full processing inputs and 16 stereo FX returns, a configurable 64 bus architecture, variable bit depth for ultimate precision and noise performance, a virtually infinite mix headroom thanks to a 96bit accumulator, and class leading latency at an ultra-low 0.6ms.
