    Like many sound engineers, I have a background in music, so I’ve been on both sides of sound checks and know how annoying a poorly-run check can be for musicians. These experiences have led to a paradigm shift in the way I approach sound checks: they’re for the artists, not the engineers. On the road, practice time is in short supply, so many artists prefer to use their stage time to rehearse new material, tweak the backline, and tighten up… View this story

    Sure, you have a great microphone collection, the latest digital console, and fantastic loudspeakers – that’s everything required of a sound company, right? Well, not exactly. The truth is that it’s the little things that can make the most significant difference between a “good” or “great” gig. Here’s a list of some (not all) of the “must haves” at any show, no matter how big or small. —- Gaffer (“Gaff”) Tape – not “duct” (or “duck”) tape, or masking tape,… View this story

    This article is provided by Gary Zandstra.com.   What is the role of the church sound operator? One aspect of it is bringing together all of the various inputs from musicians and blending them together in a pleasing way.  We use a variety of technical tools to do this. The skilled operator not only knows how to properly operate these tools, but combines that knowledge with a variety of other skills, such as listening and musical understanding. Often the operator… View this story

    Editor’s Note: Here’s an interesting thread from the PSW Live Audio Board (LAB) forums. It’s lightly edited for grammar and formatting. Enjoy. Posted by Jim Does anyone have any advice or stories? Up here in Canada winter is planning its inevitable return. I’ve a few out door winter and holiday themed events booked and was making a mental prep list. With digital consoles and equipment in general, the worst symptoms of extreme cold are screen freeze and cable stiffness. The… View this story

    This article is provided by Church On The Move.   Getting to the point where I’m truly happy with an audio mix can be quite a process. Over the years a strategy of sorts has shown itself that not only helps me delete unknown variables prior to mixing but gives me a great platform to build a truly consistent mix. Once the creatives map out the set I’ll spend some time perusing the songs, either the original recordings or a… View this story

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   Christmas: it’s the most wonderful time of the year! Unless of course you happen to be a church sound person. Statistics show Christmas and Easter are the highest attended weekends of the year, and most churches pull out all the stops to make those weekends great. And that tends to make a lot more work for the sound and production teams. Whether it’s a Christmas Pageant, a giant dramatic production, or multiple extra… View this story

    Editor’s note: This article originally appeared on PSW in 2011, but the wisdom remains relevant today and is worth repeating. It’s not earth-shaking news: we currently live in trying economic times. We have to do more with less, have seen friends leave jobs, and, in some cases, leave the pro audio industry completely. Companies of all types are downsizing. Smaller budgets, dwindling revenue, reduced staff and less time to get the job done make our work tougher. At the same… View this story
