    No, not in the way it was with iLive.
    Connecting Mixracks together is of course possible using any of the digital I/O cards but they remain separate consoles so you need to manage them separately using a surface or Director instance per Mixrack.

    It would be much cheeper to do this with any of the DX racks vs buying another Mix Rack. Total I/O count on dlive is really large.

    I do have a giga ace card…could do multiple surfaces to one rack….thought the other way around was possible..

    Thanks

    I wish you could do this. It’d be great if you could to tweak the monitors from FOH, or FOH from broadcast, etc.

    You have no clue what you are talking about?

    It’s unfortunate that every forum must have a “SteffenR” type .wayyy too many posts in my opinion.

    useless and with a total lack of decorum…..perhaps a language thing?…

    Thanks… nice
    but how is the post from Dave related to your question?
    It is already possible to control monitors from FOH and vice versa… so senseless post

    Do you require more than 128 channels being mixed at once? Or do you only need more input sockets available? If only more sockets, then adding a GX4816, DX or DT boxes would do the trick.

    I have 2 x dlive idr32 that’s why I asked the question…I don’t want to buy more equipment, just wanted to know if this was possible as in older Ilive….

    Thx

    Ah, now we get the real question.

    Using iDRs with Dlive is something that has been discussed before and it is possible using GigaAce connections. Just be aware that you will not have preamp gain control of the iDRs on the DLive surfaces. You will need to use software connected to the iDR to control that. https://community.allen-heath.com/forums/topic/dlive-with-idr-and-xdr

    Don’t think Ilya means idr32, based on the original question I think they’re DM32s.
    The only reason I brought up iLive is that you could link 2 mixracks on that system using the second one as a kind of expander.
    With dLive that’s not currently possible, and likely never will be.

    Ah, now we get the real question.

    We had the real question from the beginning and it was answered already…
    In the early days of the dLive there was mentioned that it could be made possible in the future
    but I guess that there is no real need for it anymore, since the dLive system can handle over 500 input sockets already.

    But… you can send tie lines from one dLive rack to another so it would be possible to use the input sockets of one rack as the inputs of the other one
    nevertheless the control of the preamps would only be possible with another surface or Director.

    I stand corrected yes dm 32 ..and i also have 2 idr…so 2 ilives and 2 dm..with surfaces…
