Clearwing is a full-service production company and systems integrator with offices in Phoenix, Arizona and Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Clearwing’s Production Division provides pro audio, lighting, staging and rigging, backline and video equipment rentals for clients ranging from concerts and music festivals to corporate events. The company recently added an Allen & Heath dLive S5000 digital mixer to its production rental inventory along with eight ME-1 Personal Mixers, an ME-U Monitor Hub, a Qu-Pac and an AR2412. The dLive is equipped with a DM64 MixRack and a DX32 Expander with Dante card.


“Our systems integration division regularly installs the dLive and other Allen & Heath mixers for their clients,” said Clearwing’s Nick Dressler. “Now”, he noted, “tour designers have taken to this desk.”

Dressler explained, “The dLive was something we needed in our rental inventory. It’s a rock-solid mixer with simple drag-n-drop setup and extensive DSP and things our rental customers demand like redundant networking capabilities and hot-swappable power supplies.” Dressler noted that Clearwing’s new dLive is currently on tour with Delicate Productions, a California-based touring production company and he plans to use the mixer on several other high-profile tours this year.
