    I’m moving from an ML5000 to a dLive. On the ML5000, All “Un-Muted” inputs associated with a VCA assignment, follow the VCA MUTE. However, the input channels on the ML5000 can always be “Un-Muted”, overriding the VCA MUTE. Does the dLive have that functionality (…or can it be set up to do it the same way)?

    Hi Steve,

    The dLive has a dedicated “DCA mute” LED under the mute button that illuminates when that the channel is DCA muted. This is separate from the mute button on the channel strip, but located just below it.

    So it’s always clear why/how a channel is muted, but I haven’t found a way to achieve the functionality you’re looking for, of unmuting a channel that is DCA muted. A&H confirmed that here: http://community.allen-heath.com/forums/topic/mute-groups-on-dlive/#post-48704

    There has since been a firmware update that lets you use DCAs as mute groups, but my understanding is that they’re just DCAs without the level control.

    Michael,
    Thanks for the reply…that was very helpful. I hope A&H includes this functionality as an option in a future software release!
