Clayton Hutson is a production manager and sound engineer. He and his team provide services that include production management, monitor engineering, show producing, production designing, stage management, rigging, and logistics management. Some of his most recent work includes that of DiGiCo, in which he was day-to-day production tour manager and FOH monitor engineer.
He was highly intrigued with using DiGiCo on tour. He previously had used the SD8, SD7, and D5 console. The D5 was the first of its kind, and handmade for a Marilyn Manson concert. Clayton Hutson had used all of the first consoles, so being in control of Aaron Lewis’s sound had to happen.
For the Aaron Lewis tour, Hutson needed a compressed mixing system that could be stored away easily. The SD11 was only 19 inches and seemed to be the best option. It came with DiGiCo’s best sounds and functionality that Hutson relied on. He had it running perfectly within 15 minutes.
This tour was a smaller production of what Clayton Hutson typically works. He did both monitors and FOH for Ben Kitterman and Lewis’ vocals. But, the gig still had some issues. He tailored the sound to match the house and what was going on the stage. It can be difficult at times being at a casino with a smaller floor. Sometimes that sound doesn’t match what you think it will, and have to work with it.
Once the SD11 was turned on, it did not sound any different than other DiGiCo consoles. Even though it was very compact, the sound was perfect and highly reliable. The EQ reacted the same as the SD7 did. He was very impressed with the SD11.
Clayton Hutson has been working with music since he was young. He labored very hard for many years and was finally able to turn his passion into a profession.
