    This article is provided by Church On The Move.   What’s your priority when mixing? Is it to prove your mixing abilities or to legitimately serve the people in the room? I’m writing this in the middle of a busy weekend, because I’m giving my audio mix a bit more love at the moment strictly based around a complaint email I received this past week. While this wasn’t a typical email with someone wanting to vent their frustrations about volume,… View this story

    If you happen to make your living from this industry, I have a thought for you to consider… Learn the art of customer service. Good luck with that idea, though. There aren’t a lot of great examples anymore. Just pick a random memory from any recent trip to a big box store or restaurant. Chances are, you encountered someone who hates their job, despises customers and has no intention of positively representing the company that is currently providing their paycheck.… View this story

    What Is It? A high pass filter, or HPF, is exactly as it sounds.  It is a filter we can use on our soundboards that ONLY allows the higher frequencies pass.
