As an honorable in live performances, the famous sound engineering manufacturer, DiGiCo, grants Hutson early access to their latest equipment. DiGiCo’s first SD11 console has made a debut, and Hutson wants to get his hands on it. A longtime user, Hutson has handled almost every console in the past. He used the first hand-built D5 console out with Marilyn Manson who was a significant risk considering it was early in his career. It worked out, and he has been loyal to the brand ever since.
