American event specialist Clearwing Productions worked closely with DiGiCo to provide five consoles for Milwaukee’s Summerfest, considered one of the world’s largest music festivals by Guinness World Records. As previously reported in PSNEurope, Summerfest also featured more than 340 L-Acoustics enclosures, supplied by Clearwing. The DiGiCo consoles included an SD5 at the BMO/Harris Pavilion FOH with an SD-Rack running over fiber; an SD10 at Briggs & Stratton Big Backyard Stage FOH with an SD-Rack running over fibre; an SD11 at the JoJo's Martini Lounge Stage FOH; and an SD8 at the Miler Stage. An additional SD10 at the Marcus Amphitheater FOH was used for Pitbull “The DiGiCo consoles have performed this marathon of a festival flawlessly once again,” said Bryan Baumgardner, audio operations/logistics manager for Clearwing. “With the newly added benefit SD-Convert software, the consoles are even more festival friendly.” “There were two types of engineers mixing on our consoles,” added Ryan Shelton, Group One Ltd/DiGiCo sales and support associate. “The first are house engineers for Summerfest and employees of the Clearwing, and the second, engineers traveling with the bands. House and local production engineers who hadn’t had the opportunity to mix on a DiGiCo, loved the opportunity to get hands-on and put in a lot of hours on a console that they’d been seeing out with many national acts in the field. “Overall, the attitude of the engineers we spent time with was an eagerness to learn about the new technology available to them in the varying sizes of DiGiCo systems represented at the festival. But also, they enjoyed getting deeper into these consoles to understand how they work and how they will make their jobs easier as things inevitably get more complicated.” www.summerfest.comwww.clearwing.comwww.digico.biz
