    Central Georgia is known for several things, including great food, classic southern culture, and a disproportionate number of churches. One church that’s stood as a beacon for many years is Christ Chapel, located on the north side of Macon. Currently serving as the audio director at the church, Jon Beachy and his family found everything they were searching for after relocating to Macon about 15 years ago. “We’d picked out a few churches to visit, and Christ Chapel was the… View this story

    This article is provided by Gary   Over the last 30-plus years, I’ve served on numerous tech teams at various ministries and have learned many things – many of them the hard way.

Here are some things I’ve picked up along the way, combined with the results of an informal survey of worship leaders about what they want… View this story

    This article is provided by   I have a curmudgeonly hate for modern technology. I like roll-up windows and faucet handles and telling stupid electronics what to do, when, and at what volume. I avoid the automated doors at stores in favor of the pull-handle ones. I think there’s something to human beings, to humans BEING, that technology at its zenith can’t beat. In the world of life, this makes me a dinosaur. In the world of audio, it… View this story

    Karl Winkler’s reference to “great quotes” in his recent column (here) got me thinking about the many (too many to count, in fact) insightful comments that have appeared on the pages of ProSoundWeb and Live Sound International over the years. It lead to a weekend of reading more than a hundred archived articles, and from them, I’ve drawn the following quotes about the world of pro audio. “People don’t come to hear me mix, they come to hear the act.… View this story

    This article is provided by   The recording engineer’s job is to create an environment conducive to musical creativity and then capture that creativity. I often say that. Headphones are usually the only way that a musician will be able to hear themselves and (more importantly) how what they’re playing works with the rest of the band. Every musician will ask to hear themselves much louder than everyone else. This makes sense as it will allow them to play… View this story
