    In today’s economy it’s even more tempting to try to do things for yourself, which is great when you can save a few bucks and get the results you’re seeking.  However, before starting, it’s important to be very certain that you’re fully capable of doing it right - no more so than with church A/V systems. Often when I’m working with churches (particularly smaller congregations), the issue of installing things themselves comes up. It usually revolves around the church purchasing… View this post

    The common “wisdom” just a few years ago was that the emergence of self-powered loudspeaker lines with enclosure-mounted amplifiers and protection circuitry tuned specifically for the loudspeaker meant the days of rack-mounted power amplifiers were numbered. But it’s funny the difference that innovation can make. Today’s amplifier is a powerhouse, light years removed from the huge, heavy and inefficient designs of the recent past. Current designs are also far lighter, and in some cases, come in a compact package that… View this post

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   It’s time for another book excerpt, this time from The Music Producer’s Handbook. It offers some advice about not only getting the click to cut through the mix and making it groove, but preventing any bleed into any open microphones as well. Many times just providing a metronome in the phones isn’t enough. What good is a click if you can’t hear it, or worse yet, groove to it? Here are some… View this post
