AH-DLIVE-CTI1500 - Overview

The lightest weight dLive surface available, (AH-DLIVE-CTI1500) at just 25.4lbs bring you 12 faders (with 6 layers), built-in audio I/O, an audio networking port, a 12" capacitive touchscreen, the innovative Harmony UI for the fastest workflow in the industry, plenty of rotary controls and 19 assignable softkeys.

Since its launch, C1500 has become a firm favourite in compact touring, particularly for fly dates, bus tours, support slots - in fact any applications where size and weight need to be carefully balanced against audio requirements. CTi1500 takes this no-compromise compact concept even further. With a mission to create a surface that would be under 23Kg/50lbs including flightcase, the Allen & Heath engineering team embarked on a year-long project to create the ultimate super-lightweight control surface.

On the outside, the side trims have been replaced by Titanium panels, lightweight, super-strong and a first in touring mixer design. The rear and base panels have also been cleverly re-engineered to cut the weight but retain strength.

Internally the weight loss continues, with new alloy metalwork throughout.

Crucially, the front panel remains largely the same as a C1500, providing the familiar dLive feel, but redesigned to replace the armrest with sleek steel curves.

Every change was carefully considered and rigorously tested to meet the high standards required of any Allen & Heath touring product.

Power. Packed.
It may be the lightest full control surface in the dLive range, but CTi1500 doesn't pull its punches and retains every knob, button and function of its C1500 stablemate.

That means packed in its tiny footprint you get 12 faders (with 6 layers), built-in audio I/O, an audio networking port, a 12" capacitive touchscreen and the innovative Harmony UI for the fastest workflow in the industry. You're also not short of tactile controls, with plenty of rotary controls and 19 assignable softkeys.

Ready for takeoff.
Loaded with an I/O card of your choice, and snugly wrapped in its dust cover (yes - they weighed that too…), CTi1500 can fly under 23kg / 50lbs in a custom flight case(You'll need a flightcase under 10kg/22lbs).
