    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   Many years ago I wrote an article on ChurchTechArts on which the following question was posed. I seem to get asked this question a lot and it’s a great way to lead into this article: “How do you keep your volunteers sticking around? We are a large church approx 3000 members running 5 services and everything is volunteer run.” “The engineer that runs the services that weekend is there for about 20 hours… View this story

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   Knowing the proper etiquette while recording is almost as important as doing your gig. If you make people uncomfortable or do something that’s considered out of place, chances are that you won’t be asked back. Let’s look at the way everyone expects you to act during the session with these 14 tips taken from The Studio Musician’s Handbook. Most of them apply to just about everyone on a session. 1.

    Editor’s note: This goes back to 2013, but the advice is critical to this industry and worthy of repeating. The term “bedside manner” is usually associated with doctors, but I think it’s equally appropriate for any situation where customers are being served in perhaps a technical way and communication between parties is essential. Psychology matters, and should be considered in the presentation, the choice of words, and certainly the attitude of the vendor or service provider. Case in point: when… View this story

    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   If I gave you a choice between mixing and setting up the stage, I know which you’d pick. However, it’s the work on the stage that gives you everything you need for mixing. Recently, a discussion came up surrounding the best process for training volunteer sound techs. Many people said they have techs start with stage set-up and eventually progress to mixing. The idea seemed to be “if you can handle… View this story

    Mike Sessler 01/05/17 08:11 AM,
    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   Editor’s note: This one obviously goes back a few years, but the information is worthy of repeating. Audio folks can be snobs when it comes to gear. But the reality is, we can’t always have our favorites. Sometimes, it’s a simple budget issue. At Coast Hills (my church), we didn’t have the budget for Meyer Sound, d&b audiotechnik or L-Acoustics loudspeakers. If I had held out for those brands because they have more… View this story

    Gary Gand 12/22/16 10:53 AM,
    Attention shoppers: the good news is that in this century, there is very little bad sound equipment. There are still plenty of bad engineers (not enough sleep and too much fun) and bad combinations of gear (70-volt clusters and powered mixers driving powered loudspeakers). But the stuff coming out of the factories - and even a lot of the proprietary (home brew) gear - is light years beyond the stuff we all got stuck with in the past. A not-so-famous… View this story

The information and techniques are still quite relevant, even if those cassette tapes are not… How do you establish priorities for your operating budget each year? Do you have a five-year plan for your ministry, a solid idea of where you want to be in the future, and a way to stay on task? Do you find yourself constantly putting out fires,… View this story

    This article is provided by Church On The Move.   While traveling with a female entertainer many years ago, I experienced something that turned out to be a pivotal moment in my life and career. Like many in production, I was a jack-of-all trades at the time, hired as both the audio engineer and tour manager. I had numerous details to handle, but I managed to keep all the plates spinning fairly well. We did a lot of shows in… View this story
