    This article is provided by Gary   With the rise of personal monitor mixers, the Sunday morning sound tech has had to worry less and less about the monitor mix for the musicians.  However, there are still a large number of churches which either do not have personal monitor mixers on stage. Or, only some musicians have personal mixers and some musicians like the vocalist still have their monitors controlled at front of house. One very compelling reason to… View this story

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   In most churches, front of house audio (FOH) is the most difficult tech job. It’s every bit as visible as song words (or presentation as we call it), and far more difficult to master. As the church get bigger, the band typically does as well, which makes the job that much tougher. Finding volunteers who are willing to take the time to learn how to mix FOH can be challenging; I suspect most… View this story

    church sound
    Curt Taipale 10/18/16 06:35 AM,
    This article is provided by Church   Who is soundcheck for, anyway? Sounds like a silly question, at least until you start talking with the worship teams and tech crews at a lot of churches. Then the realization begins that in fact there are some different perspectives floating around out there. From my perspective as an audio engineer, soundcheck is not the process of setting up the microphones or making sure that everything is working properly, and it’s not… View this story

    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   Honestly, there are times when I arrive early at church, toss in a CD, and simply enjoy setting up the stage. Routine, yes. Exciting, no. But, enjoyable nonetheless. Some of my speed comes from years of experience and some of it comes from knowing how I can set it up in the least amount of time necessary. Want to set the stage as quickly and accurately and safely as possible? Let’s… View this story

    This article is provided by Church On The Move.   It goes without saying that I consider drums to be the most important part of most current rock-oriented music. Starting out my career as a drummer, I pay a considerable amount of attention to the specific details of drums and cymbals and the individual technique of the drummer. Anyone who’s attended SeedsConf or SeedsU has no doubt heard us mention the importance we place on getting (and keeping) the drums… View this story

    As I waited patiently through dozens of random items donated for a local auction, the moment finally came… A box of microphones donated from a local music store. The previous hour or so had been nerve-wracking. I didn’t dare leave my seat for fear that the mostly unorganized charity fund-raiser crew would decide to pull it up when I wasn’t looking. “Here we have a mixed box of microphones and cables. Let’s start the bidding at five dollars,” the auctioneer… View this story

    church sound
    Mike Sessler 09/22/16 06:43 AM,
    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   One of the most challenging aspects of doing production in a church setting is that church happens every week. During the week we have meetings, stuff to fix and install, TPS reports to file and a host of other things to get done. It’s pretty easy to drop into mechanical way of doing things. Sometimes, we do things because we’ve always done them that way. Other times, we do whatever we inherited from… View this story
