    Flatirons Church, located in Boulder, Colorado, recently invested in new Eastern Acoustic Works (EAW) Redline loudspeakers to accommodate the growing needs of their church. They required a solution for the times when attendance to the church exceeds seating in the sanctuary – often by as many as 1,000 worshippers. By deploying Redline in the lobby, everyone in attendance has the same worship experience. It also provides them with a system to use for outside events, which are a common occurrence… View this post

    Provided by Live Sound Advice.   DI boxes (“Direct Instrument” or “Direct Inject” boxes) are very helpful tools in a live sound system. The most common type is called a passive DI, which includes an isolation transformer and ground lift switch.  The primary function of a DI box is to convert the unbalanced (1/4-inch 2-conductor) phone plug output on your keyboard or guitar into a low-impedance (low-z), balanced (3-conductor) XLR jack, which can be plugged directly into your signal snake… View this post

    Christian Assembly Church in Los Angeles, CA, first began as a small prayer group of Italians during the Azusa Street Revival Movement in the early 1900s. Since its establishment, the church has grown considerably over the years, with close to 3,000 worshipers attending services each week. The current church was built in 1976, and by 2010, was due for a major renovation project, including a completely new suite of wireless systems and microphones. For the audio overhaul, Dirk Bolle, IT/Tech… View this post

    When mixing live church praise and worship bands, or any other band for that matter, it’s the seasoned, tasteful and professional musicians that always make the sound tech’s job easy and rewarding. Their musical talents can enhance the entire worship set and they can make the sound tech’s craft really look good to boot! A capable church musician who plays with feeling, self-awareness and controlled dynamics, not only enhances the worship experience for the entire church but also makes the… View this post

    ProSoundWeb presents at least two feature articles every day of the working week, meaning that there are 40-plus long-form articles highlighted each and every month. That’s a lot. In fact, so much so that we thought it would be handy to present a round-up of the most-read articles for those who might have missed at least some of them the first time around. What follows is the top 5 most-read articles on PSW for the month of June 2016. Note… View this post

    Years ago, services in the 900-seat First Baptist Church of Manchester, Tennessee centered on sermons augmented by music played by organ, piano or choir. These days FBC punctuates sermons with a full band comprised of rock ‘n roll instruments. To accommodate the changes, Centerline Audio Visual, of Hendersonville, Tennessee, stepped in to design simple stereo reinforcement consisting of two Danley Sound Labs SM-100B full-range loudspeakers buttressed from below by a Danley BC-218 subwoofer, with Ashly Audio nXp-Series network multi-mode amplifiers… View this post

    This article is provided by Sensaphonics.   Editor’s note: I’ve known Michael Santucci for a couple of decades now. I’ve been to his clinic and have talked with him numerous times about hearing health. His company, Sensaphonics, a manufacturer of in-ear monitors, is unique. The products are designed to promote safe listening through maximum isolation, and it’s the only IEM company with a Musicians Hearing Clinic on site. They would literally rather sell you a hearing test than a pair… View this post

    In 2015, Phoenix, Arizona’s Dream City church added a campus in Scottsdale and renovated its 5000-seat Phoenix location. Later, in early 2016, Dream City added a third campus in Glendale, Arizona.  As part of its expansion program, the church acquired two Allen & Heath dLive S7000 mixers with DM64 and DM32 MixRacks for its Phoenix location along with twenty ME-1 Personal Mixers and two ME-U Monitor Hubs. The church also acquired a dLive S3000 mixer, DM64 MixRack and ten ME-1s… View this post

    This article is provided by Gary Zandstra.com.   Modern worship doesn’t always call for a choir, but there are still many worship services where a choir is involved.  Choirs used to be the staple of the worship experience in most churches—I grew up in a church where they were located in the “choir loft” for the whole service, singing all of the hymns with the rest of us as well as doing a special number or two themselves. This choir… View this post

    This article is provided by Church On The Move.   Here’s the prevailing thought on my mind this weekend as I’m spending a great deal of time behind the mixing console: It’s relatively easy (simple, even!) to completely ruin your mix. This isn’t a new revelation for me or anything, just one of those simple thoughts flittering around the edge of my consciousness as I work this weekend to NOT ruin my own mix. So, fellow ruiners, allow me to… View this post
