    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   Nothing’s more frustrating than creating a sub-par mix because the musicians don’t understand what they’re doing and the audio engineer doesn’t have the authority to say anything.

This one confined me to my home church, with no budget and no warehouse full of touring grade audio toys. It would prove to be a challenge to my maniacal, control-freak nature which served promoters and bands so well during my career. Basically, this conference was about various… View this story
