    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   One button that still looks pristine. No fingerprints. No worn finish. It doesn’t even have a name. Working in audio, it’s easy finding my way into a foreign sound booth. It could be it’s my station for an event or it might be that I’ve been invited in by the sound tech on duty.  Over the years, I’ve noticed one button that’s often not used. It’s the fixed-point high-pass filter button… View this post

    The new 700-seat sanctuary at Family of Christ Lutheran Church in Colorado Springs has a main reinforcement system designed to support contemporary-style worship services, with local integration firm Sight and Sound Technologies deploying Danley Sound Labs loudspeakers as key components. Repeating a strategy that had succeeded in the past, Kris Johnson (Sight and Sound’s COO) partnered with Danley Sound Labs on the system design. “The room has an interesting shape: the sidewalls are concave in. That made the design a… View this post

    This article is provided by Church   I played keyboards in rock and roll bands for twelve years before I went back to school to get my music engineering degree from the University of Miami (a Bachelor of Music degree with a minor in electrical engineering). I got saved just out of college, got my career started, and got married a few years later. As a recording and sound reinforcement engineer since 1980, I still love rock and roll… View this post

    The sanctuary at Central United Methodist Church, located in Albuquerque, New Mexico, is a long, shot gun style room that seats up to 1,000 congregants at every service. The room features traditional architecture with an abundance of hard surfaces that create a reverberant space and wreaks havoc on vocal intelligibility. During a recent sanctuary renovation, the church leaders decided it was time to upgrade to a new sound reinforcement system to solve the intelligibility issues once and for all. They… View this post

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   This article, #InstallationFail, has been inspired by the many, many instances of bad installation practices I’ve seen throughout the years. I’ve been taking pictures and cataloging these for quite some time, and I figured it’s time to share them with the world. Now, I should point out I’m not publishing these to make anyone feel bad. Though some of you should feel bad for some of these installations. But that’s not the point.… View this post

    This article is provided by Gary   Sitting in the tech booth during a service on a recent Sunday, I had an “a-ha” moment. Not a big one, but still a good lesson. We had traded worship bands for the day with our sister church. Our band was playing at their place, and vice versa. One of our front of house people, Justin, traveled with the band to do the mixing. Just as our service began, I received a… View this post

    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   Honestly, there are times when I arrive early at church, toss in a CD, and simply enjoy setting up the stage. Routine, yes. Exciting, no. But, enjoyable nonetheless. Some of my speed comes from years of experience and some of it comes from knowing how I can set it up in the least amount of time necessary. Want to set the stage as quickly and accurately and safely as possible? Let’s… View this post
