    This article is provided by Church On The Move.   Editor’s note: This is part 2 of a 3 part series. You can read Part 1 here. If you listen very long to anything I’ve mixed, you may discover that I like using effects. Over many years and through much trial and error, I’ve found that my mixes translate better to the listener with a fairly liberal amount of effects thrown in.

    The mistakes worship teams commit while approaching God do not preclude His presence, but they do erect obstacles to the flow of the Holy Spirit. Here, then, are 10 common errors churches can avoid in the pursuit of God: 1. Turning minor mistakes into public spectacles. When a vocalist forgets to turn on a wireless microphone or a technician commits a track cueing error, the worst thing a worship leader can do is to proclaim the mistake to the entire… View this post

    The Live Sound International (LSI) Loudspeaker Demo — a.k.a., “The Ultimate Audio Experience” — is coming to Louisville this September, presenting the unique opportunity to listen to, evaluate, and compare at least 24 top professional loudspeaker systems in a controlled listening environment. The event, which has attracted more than 3,000 attendees over the past several years, will be held in an exhibit hall in conjunction with this year’s WFX (Worship Facilities Expo) at the Kentucky Exposition Center on September 21-22.… View this post

    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   Imagine you walk into church one day and are told, “your job just got easier because we aren’t using praise bands any more…we’re going back to the pastor leading hymns.” Last night, while reading a church magazine, I noticed the variety of advertisements. Interested in improving your church? How about: • Softer chairs • Different colored pews • Software to monitor giving, attendance, birthdays, and the member’s favorite tv show •… View this post

    This article is provided by Gary Zandstra.com.   In the eyes of some people, I “cheat” when mixing.  This cheating usually takes place when I’m working with a band and/or singers that I don’t know that well. One of the common things that we face in church production today is “the worship team” - usually four to five singers that vocally lead the service or presentation. Too many times to count, I’ve found myself mixing and not knowing a single… View this post

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   A few years ago, Tim Cool from Visioneering posted a thought-provoking post of the same name (The Cost Of Getting It Wrong). It’s very good, and I suggest you go read the whole thing. He asks several questions related to staffing, building and designing. As I thought about what he wrote, one particular question resonated with me: What will it cost to have the wrong audio and acoustics in your worship center? Again,… View this post

    Located in the heart of Seoul, South Korea’s Dongshin Presbyterian Church recently installed Allen & Heath’s dLive digital mixing system as part of the Church’s developing digital based A/V system. Dongshin Church celebrated its 60th anniversary this year, and the building was named as a ‘Seoul Legacy for the Future’ by the city in 2014. Comprising a S5000 control surface and a DM48 MixRack, the new system replaces the incumbent GL3800 analog mixer. “The relationship between A&H and Dongshin Church… View this post

    This article is provided by Church Soundcheck.com.   This question is exceedingly simple to answer, yet easily eighty percent of churches choose the wrong answer. The reality is that most churches try to place the house mixing desk (console) in a location that hides the equipment as much as possible. Their solution is driven by aesthetics, mostly because that is what they understand. My guess is that they haven’t asked their sound team volunteers, the ones who will be actually… View this post

    New Stanton United Methodist Church offers a variety of ministries designed to ‘speak’ to worshippers of all ages and quality sound plays a vital role. To ensure that all members of the congregation would be able to hear clearly in their brand new sanctuary, the church recently invested in new sound reinforcement loudspeakers from WorxAudio Technologies, a division of PreSonus Audio Electronics. Good Sounds of New Stanton, PA, was contracted to design and deploy the new SR system at New… View this post

    One of the most commonly asked questions in audio is “What microphone can I use that doesn’t cause feedback?” The answer: no such microphone exists. Feedback results from a combination of many factors, including loudspeaker placement, microphone placement, and the frequency response of both devices and room acoustics. It’s a complicated process. Entire books have been written on the subject and the mathematical formulas that model feedback are quite involved. So let’s summarize the problem. What is it? Feedback is… View this post
