    Safety Instructions
    Before starting, read the Important Safety Instructions printed on the sheet supplied with the
    equipment. For your own safety and that of the operator, technical crew and performers, follow
    all instructions and heed all warnings printed on the sheet and on the equipment panels.

    System operating firmware
    The feature set of the iLive is determined by the firmware (operating software) that runs it.
    Firmware is updated regularly as new features are added and improvements made, and is
    available for download from the Allen & Heath web site. This guide relates to Version 1.7
    firmware. Some of the details shown in this guide may differ from those in the current release of
    firmware. Refer to the web site for the latest version and read the Release Notes that come with
    each version of firmware for further details.
    Note:
    Make sure all your iLive MixRacks and Surfaces are running the same version of
    firmware, and that the Editor software running on your laptop is compatible.

    Further information
    For further information, refer to the user guides associated with each system component. Refer
    also to the iDR MixRack Getting Started Guide AP7445 which presents further information on
    the DSP architecture and Port B audio networking options. Use the HELP MANUAL available
    from the iLive Surface TouchScreen UTILITY menu and the Editor software. Refer to the Allen &
    Heath web site for the latest information on iLive and additional resources for download.

    Basic system
    The MixRack (mix engine and most of the I/O) can be
    positioned on stage, and the Surface (control and local I/O) at the FOH mix
    position. A single CAT5 cable transports control and local audio between
    them using the ACE port.

    Systems

    Adding more control Plug into a Network port at the MixRack or Surface to add simultaneous control using one or more
    laptops running iLive Editor software. Use wired or plug in a router for wireless connection. Add the assignable PL Series
    devices for distributed control, for example personal monitoring. One or more can be daisy chained from the MixRack PL-Anet
    port, or distributed via a PL-9 hub. Further control is possible using MIDI, AviomTM and more.

    Linked FOH/Monitor system Use the MixRack Port B audio network
    slot to create a digital mic split between two systems over a single
    cable, for example using the ACE or EtherSound card option. Add a
    network link if the two systems are to be accessed over the same
    network using your laptop. The network link can be tunnelled via the
    single cable ACE connection.

    Operating without a Surface Leave your Surface at
    home and control iLive using just your laptop for
    compact or discreet mixing situations. You could add
    one or more PL Series controllers if you want to assign
    some physical control, for example important channels,
    DCAs or master levels.

    Linking 2 MixRacks in Dual-Rack mode Expand the number of input
    channels feeding the 32 mix buses from 64 to 128. Uses the ACE option
    to link the buses. One Surface can control up to 128 channels.

    Introduction
    The fixed format iLive is an evolution of the flagship modular iLive digital live mixing range with all the
    performance and power of its bigger brother in a compact and affordable, easy to use package. It
    separates the DSP mix engine from the control surface allowing the rack to be positioned on stage and
    the surface at the FOH (front of house) mix position, linked by a single long distance CAT5 cable carrying
    control and local FOH audio between them. The fixed format iLive Series comprises 4 sizes of rack and 3
    surfaces with non-modular audio I/O giving the user a choice of system according to budget or
    application. Two MixRacks can be linked in Dual-Rack mode to expand the number of input channels
    from 64 to 128. The iLive-R72 Surface can be rack mounted providing all the power of a much bigger
    system in a compact package. These are also compatible with the modular rack and surface options
    available within the standard iLive range, perfect for rental companies who may stock both.
    Ethernet allows additional or alternative control using wired or wireless laptops running the iLive Editor
    software. An audio networking slot provides the option to interface with industry standard networks such
    as EtherSound or MADI, create a digital mic splitter to link FOH/Monitor systems, connect to digital
    multitrack recorders, personal monitor systems and more. Further control possibilities include MIDI and
    the Allen & Heath range of PL Series remote controllers. iLive is fully configurable – the 64x32 mix
    architecture can be assigned as any combination of mono or stereo groups / auxes / FX / main mix / and
    matrix, the surface fader strips arranged with any channel or master assigned anywhere to suit your way
    of mixing, channels and masters named and coloured, physical and network sockets patched, soft keys
    and PL remote devices assigned… In fact, you can design your own mixer! Settings can be stored in
    various memory types, and transferred between systems or archived to computer using a USB key.
    The iLive is the perfect introduction to digital mixing for new users or operators familiar with analogue
    consoles. Its analogue style control interface and extensive visual feedback make it quick to learn,
    reduce operator errors, and allow the fast access most important to live sound mixing.
    This guide takes you through the quick first steps in learning to use iLive. A little time spent during a quiet
    moment pressing buttons and navigating through the various screens should help you become familiar
    with its more advanced features and capabilities. Refer also to our web site and the other user guides
    and resources available for the iLive family.

    loaded on any system combination using a
    USB key. Systems and components from
    each can be interconnected via the
    network.

    System components
    The MixRack is the heart of the digital audio processing
    system, housing the 64x32 DSP mix engine together with
    control and audio networking interfaces. The DSP can be
    configured for mono/stereo and type of mix (group, aux,
    mains, matrix). The system provides full dynamics, EQ and
    delay processing for all inputs and masters, 8 built-in
    ‘RackExtra’ effects and 16 DCA groups. The 8FX returns add
    to the 64 channels providing up to 72 sources to the mix. All
    racks provide the full 64x32 DSP processing and differ only
    in the number of Mic/Line inputs and XLR line outputs
    available. The Port B option allows digital mic splitting and
    system expansion from a choice of audio networking cards.

    iDR-64 Biggest rack:

    64 Mic/Line inputs 9U
    32 XLR line outputs

    iDR-48 Standard rack: 48 Mic/Line inputs 8U
    24 XLR line outputs

    iDR-32 Mid sized rack: 32 Mic/Line inputs 6U
    16 XLR line outputs

    iDR-16 Smallest rack:

    16 Mic/Line inputs 3U
    8 XLR line outputs

    The Surface is simply a network controller for the
    MixRack. It has a built-in interface for local audio
    which is transported to and from the MixRack via the
    ACE connection along with the Ethernet control. Each
    bank of faders has 4 or 6 layers providing a total of 72,
    80 or 112 control strips depending on Surface size.
    These strips are freely assignable as inputs, mix
    masters or DCAs in any combination. The Surfaces
    offer the same control, the difference being a reduced
    rotary control section for the smaller models. All
    processing is available using the TouchScreen.

    iLive-T112 Biggest surface:
    28 faders, 4 layers = 112 strips
    16 local line in = 8 TRS, 4 RCA, 2 SPDIF
    14 local out = 8 TRS, 2 RCA, 1 SPDIF, Monitor
    iLive-T80 Mid sized surface:
    20 faders, 4 layers = 80 strips
    8 local line in = 4 TRS, 2 RCA, 1 SPDIF
    10 local out = 4 TRS, 2 RCA, 1 SPDIF, Monitor

    iLive-R72 Smallest surface:
    12 faders, 6 layers = 72 strips
    8 local line in = 4 TRS, 2 RCA, 1 SPDIF
    10 local out = 4 TRS, 2 RCA, 1 SPDIF, Monitor

    PL-3

    PL Series controllers A range of remote controllers
    is available with assignable switches, LEDs, encoders
    and faders. A PL-8 4in/4out GPIO controller is also
    available. These connect to the MixRack via the PLAnet serial port using CAT5 cable and can be
    configured using the Surface or laptop. The PL-9 hub
    is allows star point instead of daisy chain connection.
    More information on the PL Series is available on the
    Allen & Heath web site.

    and Change MixRack
    Read the Help Manual.

    Connect Surface to MixRack

    Network settings

    Plug a CAT5 cable up to 120m * (400 feet)
    between the Surface and MixRack ACE ports.

    iLive communicates over a TCP/IP network.
    There are 3 main components – the MixRack,
    Surface and TouchScreen (built into the surface).
    These and any other network devices such as a
    wireless router and laptop need compatible
    network addresses. Factory defaults are:

    An 80m drum of suitable cable is available from
    Allen & Heath (part number AH7000).
    Note: You only need one connection between
    the Surface and MixRack. The control network
    data is transported with the audio via the single
    cable ACE link. You do not need a second
    cable for the network link.

    Step 2 – Recall a ‘Template Show’ as a starting point
    The iLive has a fully configurable audio architecture and control layout and socket patching letting you
    customise the way you work. It would be a daunting task for the new user if we gave them a ‘blank
    canvas’ to start from scratch. Instead we have provided a set of ‘Template’ Show memories which give
    you a choice of classic console format to load in as a quick starting point. These emulate the familiar
    architecture and logical layout of well equipped analogue consoles. Once you are comfortable working
    with iLive you can make changes to your set up and save these as your own ‘User’ Shows.
    A default show is already loaded when the iLive is shipped from the factory. This is FOH-LRSub.
    Details of the layout and patching of this show are presented at the rear of this guide.

    Note: Recalling a Show overwrites all the system
    settings including the DSP mix architecture, Surface
    configuration, current parameters, all the Scene and
    Library memories. Archive your current settings as
    a User Show before recalling the Template Show if
    you want to keep these to use again in the future.

    FOH-LRstereo Standard stereo main mix
    with LR master faders and channel Pan.
    FOH-LRSub Stereo with separate Sub mix
    quickly accessible on each channel using a
    shifted rotary function.
    FOH-LCRpan Conventional LCR panning left through centre to right.

    Template Shows available:

    FOH-LCRplus LCR image control with Pan
    and Blend (LR to C) controls. Similar to the
    Allen & Heath ML Series consoles.

    FOH These make a good starting point for general
    purpose live mixing whether FOH only or mixing
    monitors from FOH. They provide a classic Group /
    Aux / Mains / Matrix bus architecture and differ only
    in the type of main mix configured.

    MON-8m6st 8 mono + 6 stereo mixes plus
    Wedge/IEM monitor.
    MicSplit_FOH-LRSub FOH mixer receiving
    its inputs from the monitor console via the
    Port B digital audio network.

    MON These recall a format and layout suitable for
    dedicated monitor mixing, with a combination of
    mono and stereo auxes and engineer’s dual
    Wedge/IEM monitor.

    MicSplit_MON-8m6st
    Monitor
    mixer
    receiving its inputs from the FOH console via
    the Port B digital audio network.

    MicSplit
    Use these when the system gets its
    inputs from a ‘master’ console via a digital mic split
    such as Ace, MADI or EtherSound.

    Load a Template Show
    Press the UTILITY key below the TouchScreen UTILITY / Configuration / Show Manager.
    Highlight the Templates item. Touch the + button
    to expand the tree. Select a show from the list and
    touch Recall. A show can take several minutes to
    load depending on the amount of data stored.

    Recall settings for your iLive system
    When the recall has finished, a 'Go to SCENE page'
    message is displayed on the strips. This is to
    remind you to load two Scenes, one to match your
    iLive MixRack and the other your Surface. These
    recall the strip layout for your Surface and configure
    the output patching for your MixRack. Press the
    SCENES key below the TouchScreen. Recall the
    two Scenes.

    Customise and save your settings
    You may wish to make changes to the configuration
    and save the new settings as a User Show. Before
    you do this we suggest you Clear the contents of
    Scene 1 - 16 ready for your own application.

    Step 3 – A few things to know before starting
    Before working with the iLive familiarise yourself with its control layout and operating principles.

    Two important keys
    SEL

    PAFL

    MUTE

    MIX

    SEL - Select the channel processing. View and adjust the
    parameters for that channel. Within the processing section
    use these keys to open individual processing blocks on the
    screen, or press and hold to send the signal at that point to
    the PAFL system. These keys are also used when copying
    or resetting processing parameters, and for setting up
    ganging, name & colour and strip layout.
    MIX - Select the mix you want to work with. View and adjust
    the assignments, pre/post settings, levels and pan. There is
    an option to choose to use either fader or rotary sends for
    each Aux or Matrix mix. These keys are also used when
    assigning and copying mix parameters, and setting talkback
    assignments, channel safes and more.

    Step 4 – Name and colour channels
    Having chosen a Template show as your starting point, and set your operating preferences, you may wish
    to prepare for your show by naming your inputs, mixes and DCAs, and applying colour to help identify
    them by type or to highlight important channels. You can name channels with up to 5 characters entered
    from an on-screen touch keyboard. You can colour each or ranges of channels with one of 6 colours or
    no colour. This colour is displayed as the backlight to each strip LCD.

    There are two ways to name and colour channels:

    Channel Processing view
    In normal mixing mode, press SEL to access the channel
    processing. Make sure all screen keys are turned off so that
    the channel parameters are displayed on the screen.
    Navigate to the name and colour screen:
    Input Channels - PREAMP screen
    Mix Masters - EXT INPUT screen
    DCA Masters – Top toolbar

    Name & Colour screen
    Press the TouchScreen NAME & COLOUR key.

    Strip Select / Single Strip Select - Press a strip SEL key.
    Touch Name to open the on-screen keypad. Touch Colour to
    select a colour. Touch Apply.

    Strip Select / Block Strip Select - Press the first SEL key
    then the last in the range you want to colour. All green SEL
    indicators in the range light. Touch Colour to select the
    colour. Touch Apply.
    Note – Naming is disabled in Block mode, apart from
    resetting a block of names to their channel numbers.
    Channel Select - Select Channel Type and the range. Select
    Colour and press Apply.

    Note - To restore the SEL keys to normal mixing mode turn
    off the NAME & COLOUR key.

    Touch Reset to delete the name and restore the channel
    number.

    Quick Menu
    A quick naming facility opens a second keypad to let you
    create and store up to 48x of your most often used names.
    To apply, press a strip SEL key and simply touch a name.
    Touch Edit to edit or create new names.
    Note – The user defined quick names are stored in the Show
    memories. These get overwritten with the contents of the

    To view and set up all 8 'RackExtra' FX select the
    TouchScreen FX page. Touch one of the 8 virtual rack slots
    shown across the top of the screen. Use the Library to load
    into an empty position or change an effect type.
    The Front Panel view presents the FX parameters. Touch a
    parameter box or control and use the encoder to change the
    setting.
    All FX units feature a Dynamic FX Shaper DFX which can
    use the source to Duck or Gate the effect automatically. This
    provides dynamic control of the effect, for example to
    prevent reverb or echo swamping the signal during loud,
    busy passages.
    The Back Panel view lets you configure whether the effect is
    inserted into a channel or master, or set up as a send/return
    path. Choose the source feeding the FX and its output
    routing. The source can be patched from a dedicated FX
    send bus (if configured in the Mix Config screen), a mono or
    stereo Aux, or channel direct output (saves using up mix
    buses). The FX can be patched via a mono or stereo input
    channel or dedicated FX return 'short' channel which
    provides full routing and a PEQ, and is in addition to the 64
    processing channels.
    Press SEL on either an FX send master or return channel to
    open the FX screen if none of the screen keys is already
    selected. The channel Processing Block PEQ becomes
    available when selecting the return.

    Using DCA groups
    A DCA is the digital equivalent of the analogue console VCA
    group. iLive features 16 DCA groups.
    To assign channels to a DCA group, select the DCA master
    MIX key. Hold down ASSIGN and press channel MIX keys to
    toggle ON or off. Alternatively open the DCA master
    ROUTING screen using its SEL key.
    Note - Make sure you turn off the DCA master MIX key or
    select your usual MIX after you have finished assigning the
    groups.

    Pressing a DCA master PAFL key mixes all assigned
    channels to the PAFL monitor.
    Pressing a DCA master MUTE key mutes all channels
    assigned to the group. This affects all pre and post fade
    signals as if the channel mutes have been pressed
    The strip DCA MUTE indicator lights and the LCD DCA icon
    flashes if the channel is muted by the DCA group.
    DCA icon

    DCA mute

    Start with the DCA master fader set to ‘0’ normal position.
    In this position the assigned channel levels are unaffected by
    the master. Raise the master to boost the assigned channel
    levels by up to +10dB. Lower the master to reduce the
    levels to fully off.

    Using DCAs to create MUTE GROUPS
    With 16 DCAs available you should have enough to use
    some for 'VCA' mixing, and configure others as mute groups.
    A Mute Group mode can be set for each DCA group. Press
    the DCA master SEL key to open its TouchScreen view.
    Select the ROUTING screen. Touch the DCA Fader to 0dB
    button to set mute group mode. The master fader ‘snaps’ to
    0dB.
    Assign channels to the DCA group in the normal way. Use
    the DCA master MUTE key as the mute group master.

    Using the SoftKeys for Mute Groups
    Mute Groups

    The DCA master MUTE keys may be assigned to the user
    SOFT keys next to the screen. This is useful once you have
    assigned the groups as you can hide its fader masters on a
    layer you are not using.
    To assign SoftKeys use the SURFACE / SoftKey Setup
    screen.
    The Template Shows provided with the iLive already have
    the Soft keys preconfigured as DCA group 1-8 mutes.

    Channel Ganging
    Ganging lets you link selected processing and mix
    parameters between input channels or masters, for example
    the EQ, gate and compressor of a stereo keyboard, or the
    GEQ of the L and R main mix. Ganging does not include the
    input Preamp (gain).

    SEL

    PAFL

    MUTE

    To enter Ganging Setup mode and view and assign ganged
    input or mix master channel parameters, select the
    TouchScreen MIXRACK / Ganging page.

    MIX

    Ganged channels must be compatible input or mix types. Up
    to 8 gangs can be assigned with up to 8 channels each.
    The parameters available to be ganged are known as the
    'attributes'. These include processing such as EQ and
    dynamics, delay, routing levels and assignments and mutes.
    Touch a numbered Gang box in the left hand pane. Press
    the SEL key on the first channel strip you want to gang. Now
    touch the screen Attributes tab and highlight the parameters
    you want to gang. Touch Apply to accept the changes. Now
    press the SEL keys for the other channels you want to add
    to the gang.
    The channels currently ganged are shown in the Members
    tab and on the related fader strip SEL keys. To remove
    gangs use the strip SEL keys or the Remove buttons in the
    Members tab.
    Note – Do not leave the screen in the Ganging page. To
    restore normal operation of the strip SEL keys make sure
    you exit the Ganging setup screen.

    COPY / PASTE / RESET
    The Surface provides dedicated edit keys to let you quickly
    copy or reset settings.
    Hold down the COPY key and then press a SEL or MIX key
    anywhere on the Surface to copy its related settings to the
    'clipboard'. Now hold down the PASTE key and press the
    related SEL or MIX key on the channel or master strip you
    wish to copy the settings to. You can paste the clipboard
    settings into multiple channels.
    To reset parameters to factory default hold down the RESET
    key and press the SEL or MIX key of the channel or master
    strip or processing block you wish to reset.

    Settings that can be copied and reset:
    Any Processing Block SEL - Parameters associated with that
    block, for example, just the Preamp, PEQ or compressor.
    Channel, FX return or master strip SEL - All processing
    parameters associated with that channel, but not the Preamp
    settings or mix sends and assignments.
    Channel or master strip MIX - Mix parameters including the
    send levels, group and DCA assignments, but not fader
    level, source or pre/post settings. For example, you can
    copy one Aux mix into another as a starting point for setting
    up that monitor mix.

    Step 7 – Patch the sockets
    The iLive features a built-in soft patchbay that lets you freely patch input and output sockets. The default
    Template Shows provide a standard patch as a useful starting point. You can change this patching to suit
    your application and store it in the Scene and Show memories.

    View and patch channel INPUT sockets
    Press SEL for an input channel and view its screen PREAMP
    page (Make sure the keys next to the TouchScreen are
    turned off). Use the Source Select boxes at the top of the
    screen to view and change the input socket feeding the
    channel.
    The sockets are identified by Device (Rack,
    Surface or Port B), Slot (position) and Socket (number).

    View and patch OUTPUT sockets
    Select the TouchScreen OUTPUTS screen. Touch the tab to
    select which output sockets to patch - MixRack, Surface or
    Port B (if the option is fitted).
    Signals available to patch:
    Mono/St Group
    Mono/St Aux
    Main mix
    Mono/St Matrix
    Input channel direct output
    PAFL monitor L, R
    MixRack inputs (mic split)
    Bus out 1-32
    Wedge/IEM monitor
    ACE link (Port A)
    Port B (network option)

    Touch Single to select and patch a signal to one output.
    Touch Range to patch related signals to a range of sockets.
    Touch Apply after each change.

    Select source from the drop down menu

    Select the tab to view the
    sockets you wish to patch.
    Touch the socket to view its
    current patch or select it for
    patching.

    Patching INSERTS
    In most cases you do not need to insert outboard
    processing. However, if required you can assign output and
    input sockets as insert sends and returns for situations
    where an engineer wants to use a particular device. Any
    number of inserts may be assigned.
    Press a channel or mix SEL key. Return to the top level
    parameter screen. Touch the INSERT panel to open the
    INSERT screen.
    Use the drop down menus to assign the send and return
    Devices. After selecting both, touch Apply. Select the
    required Operating Level, typically +4dBu.
    Note - Once a socket is assigned as an insert it is no longer
    available for other purposes. Unassign the insert to re-use
    the sockets.

    Step 8 – Customise your configuration
    Once you have familiarised yourself with the operation of the iLive through using a Template Show, you
    may wish to take advantage of its unique flexibility by reconfiguring the channel and master strip layout,
    DSP mix bus and stereo channel architecture, soft key assignments and more. You can ‘design’ your
    own console to suit the way you like to work.
    Note - These instructions are intended to get you started. For more information on configuring the iLive
    and using its advanced features please refer to the TouchScreen HELP manual and other information
    which you can download from the Allen & Heath web site.

    To change the FADER STRIP LAYOUT
    Any input, mix master, DCA master or Wedge/IEM master
    can be assigned to any strip on any layer in any Bank.
    Go to the SURFACE SETUP / Strip Setup screen.
    Select Single to assign a single strip. Press a channel SEL
    key. Assign Channel Type using the drop down menu.
    Touch Channel Number and use the encoder to scroll to the
    number you want. Press Apply.
    Select Block to assign a range of strips. Press the start strip
    SEL key. Press the end strip SEL key. Assign the channel
    type and start number as above.
    Unused (blank)
    Input channel
    Mono/St Group
    Mono/St Aux
    Mono/St FX send
    Main
    Mono/St Matrix
    Input FX return
    DCA master
    Wedge/IEM master

    Note - The strip SEL keys are used to select which strips to
    assign while in this mode. Make sure you exit SETUP mode
    to restore normal channel processing selection.

    To change the MIX BUS configuration
    Press the TouchScreen MIXRACK key to view the current
    channel settings and assignments of the 32 mix buses.
    MIXRACK / Mixer Config / Mix Config - Use this screen to
    change the mix bus configuration.
    Configure the 32 mix buses as a combination of mono or
    stereo Groups, Auxes, FX sends, Main mix and Matrix.
    Configure all or as many buses as you need. Counters keep
    a check on the number of buses, mix outputs and FX sends
    remaining. Press Apply when finished.

    None - No main mix, eg. Monitor mixer
    M - Mono
    LR - Stereo
    LRSub - 3way mix with separate sub mix
    LRM - 3way mix with send to a mono fill
    LCR - Conventional LCR panning
    LCRSub - LCR with separate sub mix
    LCRM - LCR with send to mono fill
    LCRplus - LCR with pan and blend control
    Radio LRM – For broadcast application

    For monitor mixing, you can also choose whether to apply
    processing to the engineer's Wedge or IEM monitor master
    when using the system as a dedicated Monitor console.
    Note - Reconfiguring the channel stereo and mix bus
    architecture makes major changes to the system DSP and
    overwrites related settings. These changes can take up to 1
    minute to process and should be made during system setup
    and not during the show.
    Note – Changing the DSP architecture resets the mix and
    channel parameters. If you want to keep your settings store
    these first as a Scene memory. Recall the Scene after
    making your changes.

    Step 9 - Save your settings
    iLive provides different types of memory to store your settings. Back up your settings to the onboard
    memories or archive them to your PC via USB key. For more information refer to the on screen HELP
    manual.

    Power down memory
    You do not need to store settings before switching the
    system off. iLive remembers its last settings on power down
    and restores these when the system is next turned on. Your
    settings are restored even if mains power is lost without
    warning.

    User Profiles
    iLive lets you set up and work with up to 8 'User Profiles'. You
    can set permissions and a password for each to restrict
    operator access to certain functions.
    The 'Admin' user (Administrator) has access to all functions
    and can set permissions and allocate passwords if required
    for the other users. Up to 7 guest users may be configured
    and activated.

    User Permissions:
    Update Firmware
    Input Stereo Assignment
    Names and Colours
    Network Setup
    Network Connections
    Bus Configuration
    Scene Recall
    Scene Manager (Store)
    Show Manager
    Outputs (socket patching)
    Mixer Preferences
    Signal generator

    To set up User Profiles go to the TouchScreen UTILITY /
    Configuration / Edit User Profiles page. Touch a User
    button. Use the onscreen keypad to enter a user Name and
    add a Comment. Set a Password if required. Touch Set
    Permissions to enable or disable access to certain functions.
    You can also assign a Startup Scene which will recall
    automatically when the user logs in. Select No Startup Scene
    if none is required. Activate any user profiles you want to
    appear in the Change User or log in screen.
    Note - Only set passwords if you really need to. Make sure
    you keep a log of all passwords allocated. Clearing
    passwords required resetting internal jumpers and clearing
    the memories.
    To log in as a different user go to the TouchScreen
    UTILITY page and touch the Change User button. If a
    password has been set then you are prompted to enter it
    when you turn the system on or lock or unlock the Surface.

    Libraries
    Library types:
    PEQ
    GEQ
    Noise Gate
    Compressor
    Limiter/De-esser
    Full input channel processing
    Full mix channel processing
    FX emulations
    PL-Anet setup

    You can name, store and recall parameter settings as User
    libraries, or recall factory presets from the Library pane in
    each processing screen.
    Libraries can be archived to computer or transferred
    between iLive systems using a USB key. Press the
    TouchScreen UTILITY / Configuration / Library Manager
    key to work with the USB library function. If you plug in a
    USB key with libraries available these will be listed in the
    related Library screens. You do not need to copy them to the
    Surface to work with them. Copy libraries from the iLive to
    the USB key to archive or transfer them.
    Note - For iLive to see the Libraries on your USB key they
    should be placed in an 'allenheath \ libraries’ folder in the
    root directory of your key. If libraries have been previously
    transferred from an iLive to the key then the folder should
    exist already.

    Scene memories
    iLive has 250 Scene memories. These are 'snapshots' of all
    or a selection of the live mixing parameters. They do not
    store the DSP bus configuration and user preferences.
    Before starting go to the SURFACE / Preferences screen
    and set the options to enable or disable the Scene
    Up/Down/Go keys, and turn on or off the Scene Editing
    Confirmation popup box. For the most secure operation we
    recommend that you disable these keys and turn on the
    confirmation popups.
    Select the SCENE screen. Highlight a Scene in the left hand
    list. Touch Name to open the onscreen keypad and enter a
    name with up to 8 characters. Touch Description to add a
    comment with up to 32 characters.
    Preferences

    Recall Scene

    The quickest way to work with Scenes is to store everything.
    Touch Store All to store all parameters to the Scene. Touch
    Recall to overwrite the current iLive settings with the
    contents of the memory. Once a Scene has contents stored
    a green tick is displayed next to its name.
    Note – To avoid losing important settings take care when
    storing or recalling Scenes.

    Store all settings
    Update existing contents of Scene

    For more advanced applications you can choose what
    parameters to put into a Scene so that only those are
    overwritten. Touch Edit To open the list of available
    parameters. Use the + and - buttons to expand or collapse
    the list, and the View buttons to select parameters by type or
    channel. You can make Single or Multiple selections.
    Highlight your selection and touch Add to add them to the
    Scene list on the right. You can add and remove items from
    the Scene, and update items already in the Scene with the
    current console settings. When you have finished editing the
    contents Return to the Scene Manager page.
    Touch Update to update just the existing contents of a
    Scene with the current console settings. Unlike Store All this
    does not add everything to the Scene.
    You can copy, paste and delete Scenes. Highlight a Scene
    in the list and touch Copy. Highlight another Scene and
    touch Paste. The contents of the first Scene are pasted into
    the second. The name is not copied. If that Scene was
    empty a green tick will now appear. You can paste the
    Scene into multiple locations. When you Delete a Scene its
    contents are removed and the name reverts to 'No Name'.

    Settings in the Scene
    Settings available to add

    Tip - You can use copy/paste to quickly set up several
    Scenes with the same content list, and then use Update to
    store different parameter settings for each as the sound
    check or show progresses.

    Reorder mode - Lets you re-arrange the 250 Scenes by
    moving, copying, deleting them or clearing their contents.
    Select single or multiple Scenes. Use the TouchScreen
    encoder to highlight the new position when moving or
    copying Scenes. Touch Apply to confirm the edit.
    Move – Repositions Scenes in the list.
    Copy – Copies the name and contents to other
    Scenes in the list.
    Remove – Choose to clear the name and contents
    of Scenes, or to delete them from the list.

    Scene Recall Safes lets you make selected input
    channels, mix and DCA masters 'safe' so that their
    parameters are not overwritten when a Scene is recalled.
    Hold down the SCENE SAFES key and press the strip MIX
    keys on channels you want to make safe. The SAFE icon in
    the strip LCDs turns on for channels made safe.
    Preamp Safes The mic preamp is automatically included
    in channels made safe. If you do not want to make the
    preamp safe, for example because you have patched it to
    more than one input channel, you can change its safe status
    using the Preamp screen Safe button.
    Show memories

    Factory default Template shows
    Archive existing settings

    You can archive your configuration as a Show memory.
    Show memories overwrite all the settings. These include
    all current parameters, system DSP and control
    configuration, all 250 Scenes and the user preferences.
    Shows are stored on the TouchScreen computer within the
    Surface and can be transferred between systems using a
    USB key.
    To archive your configuration go to the UTILITY /
    Configuration / Show Manager screen. Touch the Archive
    Show button. Type in a name using the onscreen keypad.
    Press Enter to archive the show. This takes a few seconds to
    complete.
    Use the + button to Expand the list of Shows currently
    stored. Template Shows are factory defaults that cannot be
    deleted. They give you a quick starting point for mixing with
    iLive and can be edited to create your own User shows.
    To overwrite an existing User Show highlight it in the list and
    touch Archive. The keypad opens with its name displayed.
    Either type in a new name to archive it as a different show, or
    just press Enter to overwrite the existing show.

    User Show list

    To recall a Template, User or USB show go to the UTILITY /
    Configuration / Show Manager screen, highlight a Show in
    the list, then touch the Recall button. Confirm the action.
    Note - Recalling a show overwrites all the system settings
    and can change your mix architecture and patching. Make
    sure existing settings are archived first if you want to keep
    them to use again in the future. Show recall can take up to 3
    minutes depending on how much information is stored.

    Scene transfer Filter

    Note - Show recall should only be used when reconfiguring
    your system for a different event. This would typically be
    done once for the event. Use the Scene memories rather
    than Shows to recall settings for different scenes in a theatre
    performance, bands at a music festival, day to day setups in
    a church, and so on.
    Note - For iLive to see the Shows on your USB key they
    should be placed in an 'allenheath \ shows' folder in the root
    directory of your key. If you have previously archived Shows
    to the key using an iLive then this folder should have already
    been created.
    In situations where you want to import settings from a guest
    engineer’s USB key but do not want to overwrite all the
    system settings, you can use the USB Scene Transfer
    function available in the UTILITY / Configuration screen.
    Refer to the TouchScreen HELP manual for further
    information.

    System example
    The following is just one of many system combinations possible with iLive. Here, two MixRacks are linked
    for digital mic split from one set of preamps feeding two independent mixers, one for FOH, the other for
    on-stage monitors. One engineer uses a compact T80 Surface to mix the house sound, the other uses a
    wireless laptop to mix monitors on stage.

    ACE

    Wireless router for PC running Editor

    Master system The iDR-48 provides a
    large number of mic inputs for sources on
    stage, and plenty of outputs to feed the wedge
    and IEM monitors.

    Slave system The small iDR-16 with its
    64x32 DSP can mix a full 64 channels even
    though it has just 16 inputs. It gets the 48 mics
    via the Port B digital split. The T80 provides 8
    more inputs at the Surface for local sources.
    With the 8 internal FX returns this is the
    equivalent of a 64 channel analogue mixer.

    Port B provides a digital mic splitter. In this
    example ACE™ is used. Alternatives are MADI
    or EtherSound. Patch the MixRack Inputs to
    Port B using the OUTPUTS screen. This takes
    the signal straight after the preamp so that each
    engineer has their own channel Trim control.

    Because the 48 mic sources are received via
    Port B it is necessary to patch Port B inputs to
    the iDR-16 channels instead of the local
    sockets. Do this for individual channels using
    their PREAMP screens, or for a range of
    channels from the MIXRACK SETUP / Mix Pref
    screen Quick Input Setup function.

    The NETWORK is shown bridged at both ends
    to the ACE™ cards using short CAT5 cables
    (part number AH7812). This is only necessary
    if you want your laptop to be able to access
    both systems via the wireless router. Make
    sure each MixRack, Surface and network
    device has a unique IP address. If you need
    just audio then leave the Bridge sockets
    unplugged.

    Feeds to the house PA can be routed from FOH
    or tunnelled back to the stage via Port B.
    These are patched to Port B at the sending end
    at to the iDR-48 sockets at the receiving end
    using the OUTPUTS screen.
    The audio clock is set to sync off Remote Port
    B derived from the iDR-48 master. Set this
    using the MIXRACK SETUP / Mix Pref screen.

    This example shows a compact two engineer
    system with wireless laptop controlling monitor
    mixes. Alternatively you could connect another
    Surface to the iDR-48 so that each engineer
    works with their own Surface. A laptop can be
    added at either or both ends in addition to or
    instead of the Surface.

    We hope that this guide has given you a quick start to mixing with the iLive. Take some quiet time to
    familiarise yourself with the more advanced functions and utility screens. For further information please
    refer to the TouchScreen HELP manual in the UTILITY screen and other user resources which can be
    downloaded from the Allen & Heath web site. Share experiences and tips with other iLive users by visiting

    When rack mounting ensure adequate
    ventilation and space for the connectors,
    cables and lamp fitting at the rear.
    Note – Due to the height of the TouchScreen
    a rack case with a deep lid is required. Many
    standard off-the-shelf equipment cases are not
    intended for consoles such as the iLive.
    However, most flight case manufacturers can
    provide custom cases to suit different mixer
    models.

    The iLive-R72 Surface can be configured for
    desk top, flight case, 19” rack or furniture
    installation. The plastic side trims can be
    removed and replaced with the metal rack
    ears provided. A minimum 12U rack space is
    needed. More may be needed depending on
    connector access requirements.
