    This article is provided by Church   On most audio consoles above a certain price point, there is a button on each channel with the “∅” symbol. It may be (mistakenly) labeled “phase”. Mythology runs rampant on the meaning and the use of that switch, and most of that confusion is steeped in stories told by someone who didn’t understand it to others who understood it even less. That misunderstanding leads to a statement that I still hear today… View this story

    Woodside Bible Church has grown in the metropolitan Detroit community, now with twelve campuses serving Southeastern Michigan’s Contemporary Christian population. Woodside’s Lake Orion campus was originally founded in 2009 as a portable church, operating out of an area middle school. Recently, the church acquired a new building for the Lake Orion campus to call home, outfitting the space with a Renkus-Heinz VARIAi variable array loudspeaker system. As Bob Sullivan, principal of Advanced Lighting and Sound in Troy, MI, explains, the… View this story

    With Christmas fast approaching, the congregation of First Baptist Church was excited about upcoming holiday concerts featuring Grammy and Dove Award-winning artist Jason Crabb and the church’s own Celebration Choir and Orchestra. Much less exciting was the prospect of hearing the music on the church’s old, inadequate sound system. So a month before the shows, pastor of Worship and Music Joel Harris contacted the team at Ford Audio-Video, who recommended Fulcrum Acoustic Loudspeakers as the solution. At 9:30 am the… View this story

    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   No place is an engineer’s talent more tested than with vocals. A singer’s range, frequency characteristics, and vocal style all contribute to the specific sound and how it’s treated in a mix. Song arrangement is another influence. Anything’s possible, whether it’s a lead with backing vocals, multiple leads taking turns, guest vocalists, duets, and many other combinations, and this interplay is another factor in mix decisions. With so many variables and… View this story

    In another successful deployment that showcases the functionality, performance reliability and workflow-friendliness of Studer by Harman digital mixers, Sugar Creek Baptist Church in Sugar Land, Texas has made Studer the hub of its audio production and broadcast enterprises. Worship leaders at Sugar Creek Baptist Church needed to upgrade their front of house audio console to accommodate the services in the church’s main sanctuary. But it wasn’t as simple as selecting a product and purchasing it. As one of the largest… View this story

    The Heights Campus of The Rock Church is located in a former dealership for renewable energy cars with multiple glass surfaces, a daunting challenge for any audio system required to reproduce the spoken word and contemporary worship services with full band instrumentation. To solve the problem, the Church and their design/build integrator, Clark, chose a Martin Audio MLA Mini loudspeaker array with CDD speakers for the control to direct the sound into the audience evenly from front to back without… View this story

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   I’ve been working on this article in my head for some time now. The basic concept for the article is the law of diminishing returns. This law states that as you continue to put time/energy/money/effort into a project, at some point the return you receive for the increased effort is no longer worth it. It’s sort of like a compressor; put 2 dB in, get 1 dB out. Turn up the ratio and… View this story

    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   One Friday night, I used three pairs of ears. I’m not talking about earbuds or anything electronic in nature. I’m talking about real human-tissue ears.  And therein was the key to my success. A friend of mine was a singer in a 30-plus-person barbershop singing group. He told me they could use an experienced sound guy and asked if I was interested.  A few phone calls and emails later, I found… View this story
