    Anyone who has survived more than a few hours behind a console has already accumulated a few amusing tales of the pro audio life. It doesn’t take long before they start sounding like war stories, sitcoms or detective novels. From my experience, the primary talent that identifies a true industry pro is their ability to manage pressure and make things happen without excuses. The ones who can be dropped into any situation and run it like it was rehearsed. Becoming… View this story

    The mistakes worship teams commit while approaching God do not preclude His presence, but they do erect obstacles to the flow of the Holy Spirit. Here, then, are 10 common errors churches can avoid in the pursuit of God: 1. Turning minor mistakes into public spectacles. When a vocalist forgets to turn on a wireless microphone or a technician commits a track cueing error, the worst thing a worship leader can do is to proclaim the mistake to the entire… View this story

    Courtesy of Omega Studios.   You don’t have to be the president of CBS Records to notice that the recording industry has changed a great deal in the last decade or two. For most artists, gone are the days of large multi-million dollar budgets for album projects. Nowadays, the recording process has got to be streamlined and efficient in order to be effective.  But even in the old days, there were certain things that bands would do to maximize their… View this story

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   A few years ago, Tim Cool from Visioneering posted a thought-provoking post of the same name (The Cost Of Getting It Wrong). It’s very good, and I suggest you go read the whole thing. He asks several questions related to staffing, building and designing. As I thought about what he wrote, one particular question resonated with me: What will it cost to have the wrong audio and acoustics in your worship center? Again,… View this story

    When I was getting stated in this business, I had some excellent mentors along the way. One of the things they taught me was to be prepared with a set of tools and the knowledge to use them properly. While organizing the U.S. Air Force Band Sound Workshop (an annual event for military sound engineers) during the 1990s, I passed along this information to the budding audio people, many of whom were musicians transitioning to sound for a variety of… View this story

    When mixing live church praise and worship bands, or any other band for that matter, it’s the seasoned, tasteful and professional musicians that always make the sound tech’s job easy and rewarding. Their musical talents can enhance the entire worship set and they can make the sound tech’s craft really look good to boot! A capable church musician who plays with feeling, self-awareness and controlled dynamics, not only enhances the worship experience for the entire church but also makes the… View this story

    This article is provided by Church On The Move.   Here’s the prevailing thought on my mind this weekend as I’m spending a great deal of time behind the mixing console: It’s relatively easy (simple, even!) to completely ruin your mix. This isn’t a new revelation for me or anything, just one of those simple thoughts flittering around the edge of my consciousness as I work this weekend to NOT ruin my own mix. So, fellow ruiners, allow me to… View this story

    According to an old axiom, “Everyone knows two things: their job and sound.” In other words, every audience member is an audio expert. Therefore, it is difficult to deliver a “good” mix since what is proper tonal and level balance to one person is inappropriate to another. A healthy relationship between the front of house engineer and the audience rests on the engineer’s ability to provide a mix acceptable to a plurality of the listeners’ ears. To achieve success, the… View this story
