    Central Georgia is known for several things, including great food, classic southern culture, and a disproportionate number of churches. One church that’s stood as a beacon for many years is Christ Chapel, located on the north side of Macon. Currently serving as the audio director at the church, Jon Beachy and his family found everything they were searching for after relocating to Macon about 15 years ago. “We’d picked out a few churches to visit, and Christ Chapel was the… View this story

    This article is provided by Church   Skill: the ability to do something well; expertise. I recently asked the members of the Church Soundcheck (CSC) discussion board for their thoughts on the key technically oriented skills that a church sound tech must have (or strive for). It resulted in a lot of great input, which I’ve whittled down into this list. 1. Have a musical ear. When we say people have “good ears,” we mean that they know what… View this story

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   One of the most critical and overlooked parameters when mixing is the monitor level. Either mixing too loudly or too quietly can fool your ears to the point where you’ll end with a mix that will seem to be missing something later. Here’s an excerpt from my book, The Audio Mixing Bootcamp, that explains a bit more about mixing levels and how to find what works best for you. —————————————————— One of… View this story

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   I love reverb on vocals. It stands to reason; I grew up in the 1970s and 80s, when there were many records made with tons of reverb on vocals. Today, the pendulum has swung the other way and vocal reverb has become more minimalist. I’m not necessarily against minimal reverb on vocals, but I do often think that reverb covers a multitude of sins. And when we’re mixing audio in churches, having a… View this story

    In many ways, loudspeaker technology is the primary limiting factor in sound reinforcement system design and performance. Transducers are always problematic, having to comply with the laws of thermodynamics and all. Not only are they inefficient at turning electric energy into acoustic energy, they also add a significant amount of distortion to the signal during the process. Some years ago I was in Washington, D.C., doing research for a potential patent for a vibration reducing device, and I came across… View this story

    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   Can the congregation tell who’s mixing? The question is not for reasons of pride but for consistency. The congregation should hear a predictable mix each week, and when a new audio tech joins the team, this can be a problem. The new tech could be experienced or fresh off the street. Either way, the mix needs to conform to the standard sound set forth by the audio team. It can be… View this story
