    Many years ago, we hosted a three day worship arts conference. Not like the conferences I was paid to do, traveling around the country with large budgets and excessive amounts of gear. 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

    During the late nineties, Russia was going through some pretty dramatic changes. One of the big ones was opening up to allow churches to come in. Many Americans were arriving to serve as missionaries while that door was open, including a family that we knew. Within a year, they were part of a rapidly growing church that met in a large (rented) theater space in Moscow. Someone donated money and equipment for a portable system, and they managed to put… View this story

    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   I call it the Bryan Adams curse. In the mid-1980s, his music was heard on every station with a music format of top 40, adult contemporary, and even smooth jazz. From his rock songs to his ballads, his music was everywhere. Today, I’m apt to switch stations when I hear one. But what if he released remixes of his music? I’m listening. The Bryan Adams curse doesn’t often happen with artists.… View this story

    For a brief moment in time, I, the lowly sound guy, had enormous power! Our story begins late one Friday afternoon when I received a call from Andy, the technical director at the Breslin Student Events Center on the campus of Michigan State University in Lansing, Mi. He wanted to know if I could be front-of house mix engineer for an upcoming event the following week. Sure, I said, searching my calendar, half-listening as he described the event. Then, whoa,… View this story

    A good house sound reinforcement system starts with a controlled stage monitor system, and a controlled monitor system starts with managing the on-stage levels. Simply, excessive sound pressure levels (SPL) on stage can often lead to excessive levels from the house system. This leads to two suggestions. Monitor levels should be set after house levels, and monitor levels should be sufficiently low in order to not interfere with the house system. Let’s proceed with the assumption that the goal of… View this story

    The newly opened Kroc Center (also known as the Ray and Joan Kroc Community Center) is one of thirty-one planned community centers now built or proposed for construction across the United States. Operated by The Salvation Army and funded by a $1.5 billion donation from the estate of the late Joan Kroc (widow of McDonald’s founder Ray Kroc), the Kroc Center is a community center where children and families are to be exposed to different people, activities, and arts that… View this story

    Provided by Sweetwater.   Q: I’ve been helping out with sound at church for a while now, so I feel kind of silly asking this question. However, I see the abbreviations “TS” and “TRS” on lots of things with 1/4” jacks and plugs. What do all these different abbreviations mean? A: Not a silly question at all! Deciphering all the jargon and abbreviations associated with pro audio can indeed be a challenging task. “TS” stands for “tip-sleeve,” a type of… View this story

    A century later, the church’s original parish hall is surrounded by a burgeoning campus that includes a magnificent church, an historic rectory, a Frank Lloyd Wright style convent, and state-of-the-art school facilities that serve students from kindergarten through 12th grade. The church is a grand, stately stone building with soaring 50-foot ceilings and classic Old World style marble tracery. As with many older sanctuaries, its classic architecture was designed for majestic organ and choir sound, with spoken word intelligibility a… View this story
