    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   Whenever making new technology purchases or technology upgrades, it’s important to think through the reasoning behind them as well as the actual purchase/upgrade process. Here are five things to think about when evaluating technology. Does the technology further or enhance our mission as a church? In other words, what do you feel you can’t do now (or aren’t doing well) that is critical to your churches specific mission? Of course, this presupposes you… View this story

    Many moons ago, I was approached by a very talented local musician with a common request. “Can you do a project for me? I don’t really have any money, but…” Just fill in that last part with whatever excuse, incentive or promise you feel like pulling from your own experiences. Since these requests arrived so frequently, I developed one of my core philosophies about business. It didn’t matter if it concerned studio projects, live shows or installations; the concept is… View this story

    “Getting ahead without being a jerk” is actually what our young friend said he wanted to discuss. I will use the pseudonym “Oz Man” for him due to the volatile nature of his dilemma! Notice that he is so distraught that he offers no salutation! At the age of 17, I entered my journey of wanting to be a sound professional. At age 27… … that makes it a decade later, right? … I have gone to “rock and roll… View this story

    At some point, every freelancer considers the possibility of moving up in the world and buying their own big system. Some do it, some don’t. But everyone has their reasons for the final decision. After years of doing shows as a hired gun, I began to consider the niches in my market and ways to take my little business to the next level. I determined that the big hole in my local market was for a dedicated monitor rig. My… View this story

    This article is provided by Commercial Integrator   Maybe no one has so profoundly summed up the essence of building brand loyalty than Simon Sinek in his Ted Talk, “Start with Why”. If you haven’t watched it before, I recommend it highly. There are many great Ted Talks, but this is one that has stuck with me ever since I saw it. But I digress… Simon notes people don’t buy what you do or how you do it, but they… View this story

    As referenced in the article “When the show hits the fan,” there was a gig we pulled off without any of our gear. That’s right. The truck never showed up. In that same article, I explained the dark art of staying calm and resolving issues without inciting panic in those who carry the check books. For this particular adventure, the job of driving hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of our precious equipment from Georgia to Texas was given to… View this story

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   There has been a lot of discussion about how loud we run our services. I got to thinking about this recently while going through a thread on the Church Sound Forum. The question was posed, “How loud at FOH?” The answers varied greatly, from in the mid 80s to well over 105 dB SPL. Then a debate ensued about whether the metering of the sound should be done with A-weighting, C-weighting, fast or… View this story
