A pair of Allen & Heath’s dLive C3500 digital mixing systems have become the latest members of the congregation at the Church of Living Water in Olympia, the capital of Washington state. The consoles were added as part of an upgrade designed to improve the audio quality and provide the church with technology that would evolve with their future needs.

‘The church wanted something today that would serve them well into tomorrow’, explained Mark Pearson of CCI Solutions, the Washington-based AV integration company chosen for the upgrade. ‘They embraced the idea that technology would always be changing, and wanted consoles that wouldn’t leave them with any limitations as their needs evolved.’

The contemporary-style services for over 2,000 congregants are led by pastors Jon and Fawn Cobler and include a full band with drums, bass, guitar and keyboards requiring an average of 30 input channels. The first dLive C3500 control surface manages front of house, while the second has been installed in the church’s broadcast control room to manage weekly live streaming of events.

‘The audio team at Living Water had an easy time transitioning to the dLive control surfaces’, Pearson reported. ‘Each of the C3500s’ twin 12-inch capacitive touchscreens provide a level of intuitive control for anyone used to swiping away at a smart phone screen. Which, let’s face it, is virtually everyone. For our operators who still prefer the feel and immediacy of rotary controls, there’s a set of those as well, and they all work in harmony with what’s seen on the displays.

‘These desks will be around much longer then the once they replaced. We’ve definitely taken a big step out of the past’, concluded Pearson.
