Grace Immanuel Upgrades with Allen & Heath dLive

E-mail Print PDF

Dan Kreider and Will Morris at the dLive S7000.JUPITER, FL - Grace Immanuel Bible Church recently acquired an Allen & Heath S7000 digital mixer with a DM64 MixRack and DX32 Expander to support its worship services and special programs. The upgrade was necessary. Dan Kreider, Grace Immanuel’s minister of music, says the church’s special services may include a 12-voice mixed ensemble and an orchestra resulting in as many as 78 sources. To accommodate this quantity of inputs and provide separate mixes for its sound reinforcement system, in-ear stage monitors and live broadcast, the church had been cascading a pair of older, 32-channel digital mixers. However, this setup was complex to operate, the channel count was insufficient and the broadcast feed had “hit its limits.”
