    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   Don’t we all have stories of misheard words?  It could have been a song lyric or maybe you misheard your spouse?  Maybe they mumbled a word or it just wasn’t clear what was said.  This has been the cause for a few hilarious moments at our dinner table.  The problem is that unclear words are a distraction from the message.  In the church environment, the pastor’s words must be clear and… View this story

    This article is provided by Gary Zandstra.com.   Do you replace production/system equipment based on it being worn out or for new features and functionality? When we get a new system or new piece of gear, often the last thing on our minds is repairs or the life cycle of the system. In my view, churches are getting better at understanding professional A/V systems. I find that in general the market is more aware of the cost versus the expectation… View this story

    This article is provided by Church Soundcheck.com.   The popular Charismatic phrase – “flowing with the Spirit” – has caused more harm and more strife and more heartache than probably any other phrase in the Christian’s vocabulary I can think of. There have been times when there I was, happily busting my rear to get a particular audio ministry job done, only to hear the immortal Charismatic church trademark of “oh, by the way, we’re changing this, this, this and… View this story

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   Editor’s Note: This story originally ran in December 2010, but the information is still very relevant and worthy of repeating. This week is production week for us at Coast Hills. And it’s quite a production; Gunch! is an (almost) all-original musical-style stage play with an 80+ member cast, 13 person pit band and five performances over the weekend with an expected attendance of 4500+. It’s quite an undertaking. This past Friday was opening… View this story

    Church on the Move (COTM) in Tulsa is the home to Pastor Willie George, a passionate minister who was first introduced to me through a series of videos that my oldest daughter watched in children’s church. That was over 20 years ago, and COTM has since grown into one of the most respected and well-known churches in America. At the helm of the church’s seven-day-a-week schedule, assuming responsibility for all aspects of live production, is another person I’ve found to… View this story

    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   It was a mix engineer’s nightmare. Vocal microphones for singers were spread out across console channels 2, 7, 10, and 13. To make matters worse, they were labeled across as C, A, D, and B – not even in alphabetical order. The rest of the channel assignments were no better. I wept. (Not really but I felt like it.) What better way to guarantee frustration and a slower mixing process? The… View this story

    ProSoundWeb presents at least two feature articles every day of the working week, meaning that there are 40-plus long-form articles highlighted each and every month. That’s a lot. In fact, so much so that we thought it would be handy to present a round-up of the most-read articles for those who might have missed at least some of them the first time around. What follows is the top 5 most-read articles on PSW for the month of May 2016. Note… View this story

    This article is provided by Church On The Move.   The longer I’ve worked in the production world, I’ve come to rely on these three essentials: God’s grace, the power of details, and organization. This doesn’t prevent the inclusion of several hundred other items, but these are the ones that almost always rise to the top. The degree of organization I’m describing in this list is a dynamic process; one that has scaled up over the years in relation to… View this story

    Provided by Live Sound Advice.   One of the most common questions that comes up on many live sound forums is how to stop noises in a sound system. I’ve been doing a lot of experimenting on this subject over the past several years, plus I’ve been battling sound system noise such as hum in the field for more than 45 years, so here’s my observations on sound system noise and what to do about it. Before having any chance… View this story

    When was the last time that you listened analytically to the loudspeakers in your sanctuary and perhaps other spaces? I mean really, truly listened to them? The reason that I ask is because easily 80 percent of the church loudspeaker systems that I’m invited to evaluate and re-voice (“tune,” “EQ,” “optimize,” etc.) have something seriously wrong with them – something that the church sound techs and pastoral staff are totally unaware of. Sometimes sound techs might be suspicious that things… View this story
