The DM48's tremendously powerful XCVI Core features six parallel mix engines, providing you with enough horsepower for 160 x 64 channels of processing at 96kHz, consisting of 128 live inputs, a configurable 64-bus architecture, and 16 stereo effects returns. Speaking of effects - the DM48 incorporates Allen & Heath's DEEP technology, giving you a vast assortment of EQs, compressors, and FX emulations to liven up your mixes. As the brain of an Allen & Heath dLive digital mixing system, the DM48 MixRack delivers the power and performance you need!

XCVI Core delivers unprecedented performance

With 36 parallel virtual processing cores, the dLive DM48 MixRack generates enough power for 160 x 64 channels of processing at 96kHz, thanks to its robust XCVI Core. That's a lot of power! The XCVI Core's six parallel mixing engines calculate over 10,000 cross points per sample and 25 billion operations per second. Its router utilizes FPGA technology, delivering enough capacity for 3,000 x 3,000 audio paths. This gives you 128 full inputs and 16 stereo FX returns with full processing, a configurable 64-bus architecture, variable bit depth for excellent precision and noise performance, incredible headroom thanks to a 96-bit accumulator, and an amazingly low 0.58ms of latency.

DEEP technology provides a vast assortment of effects

Allen & Heath's DEEP technology infuses the dLive DM48 MixRack's input and mix channels with a massive assortment of FX emulations that will make your mixes pop like never before. Create incredible mixes, thanks to a sizable collection of compressor models, including Slow-Opto, RMS, and more. Shape your sound with a powerful array of EQs. Enjoy latency-free performance without monopolizing FX slots. And speaking of FX slots - the DM48 has 16 available, each with a dedicated stereo return.
