    Provided by Live Sound Advice.   One of the most common questions that comes up on many live sound forums is how to stop noises in a sound system. I’ve been doing a lot of experimenting on this subject over the past several years, plus I’ve been battling sound system noise such as hum in the field for more than 45 years, so here’s my observations on sound system noise and what to do about it. Before having any chance… View this post

    Mount Pisgah United Methodist Church in Johns Creek, Georgia recently added Yamaha CL5s and CL1 digital audio console to its sanctuary; a CL5 and CL1 are located at the front of house location and the second CL5 at monitors. Muzeek World of Corona, CA was responsible for the upgrade. Long familiar with Yamaha digital consoles having owned a 96-channel PM1D, the CL console set up will enable the church to cascade the two front of house consoles together for the… View this post

    When was the last time that you listened analytically to the loudspeakers in your sanctuary and perhaps other spaces? I mean really, truly listened to them? The reason that I ask is because easily 80 percent of the church loudspeaker systems that I’m invited to evaluate and re-voice (“tune,” “EQ,” “optimize,” etc.) have something seriously wrong with them – something that the church sound techs and pastoral staff are totally unaware of. Sometimes sound techs might be suspicious that things… View this post

    Christ Community Church technical director Michael Montanari has specified Solid State Logic L500 consoles for both front of house and monitor positions at its St Charles campus. The consoles were purchased from SSL Live partner TC Furlong. The 2000 capacity St Charles Campus auditorium has a regular Saturday afternoon service and two Sunday morning services, as well as a number of larger events throughout the year, including special worship nights and visiting touring acts. The Sunday services are streamed live… View this post

    As the seat of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee for over 150 years, the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist has not only been an important place of worship, but an enduring local landmark. Constructed in 1893, its austere grandeur has led to its being listed in the National Register of Historical Places. Consequently, the preservation of the cathedral’s elegant interior has always been a major concern and one of the reasons for the 2014 installation of a suite of Tannoy… View this post

    Located in Jupiter, Florida, Grace Immanuel Bible Church holds two identical worship services each Sunday with a smaller service Sunday evening in its 650-seat sanctuary.  Services feature a blend of traditional and modern worship music for all ages and cultures with several vocalists and a variety of instruments and percussion.  To support its worship services and special programs, Grace Immanuel recently acquired an Allen & Heath S7000 digital mixer with a DM64 MixRack and DX32 Expander. Dan Kreider, Grace Immanuel’s… View this post

    This article is provided by Gary Zandstra.com.   I was at an event recently where the mix was, shall we say, less than spectacular. But it also wasn’t horrible. Let’s just say it was a little above bad and a little less than O.K. In reality it was mainly one thing that was really grating on my nerves: every time the lead singer would really get into his mic, some level distortion would occur.  I wanted to get up and… View this post

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   How many times have you heard this phrase: “If we had a digital sound board, we could save so much time on sound checks and it would sound the same every week.” Or this one: “We have a digital board, so why does my monitor mix change every week?” Or my personal favorite: “Are the sound guys not saving the settings each week, because it’s so different every weekend…” These questions and comments… View this post

    Provided by Live Sound Advice.   If terms such as gain structure, impedance matching and headroom are unfamiliar, or worse, give you a headache, don’t worry, you’re not alone. Most church sound techs would rather have their gear work perfectly right out of the box than have to tweak it into compliance. Nevertheless, when it comes to setting up and operating a sound system, a working knowledge of gain structure (and a few related concepts) will help you get the… View this post

    As part of a major AV refurbishment, Bethany Salatiga Church has become one of the first Indonesian houses of worship to install Allen & Heath’s dLive digital mixing system, along with a ME personal monitoring system. Located in the city of Salatiga in Semarang, Indonesia, the large capacity church needed a system to manage front of house and monitors in the main sanctuary, which hosts several different traditional, modern and youth services each day, as well as broadcast feeds for… View this post
