    Founded nearly half a century ago in Northampton Township, Saint Bede the Venerable has grown to more than 10,000 parishioners. The church recently underwent a $5 million renovation and expansion, incorporating a classic Italian marble altar, magnificent stained glass, and a new sound system based around Community VERIS 8 two-way full-range systems. As Audiobahn’s Tony Hersch explains, the new sound system design called for versatility. “Unlike some of the more traditional Catholic churches, St. Bede offers a mix of traditional… View this post

    Church sanctuaries are often aesthetically beautiful spaces. Church sanctuaries are often acoustically challenging spaces. Navigating between these two extremes is the sound system designer. It’s a path recently tread by Rod Andrewson and the team at CCS Presentations Systems in formulating and implementing a new sound reinforcement system at St. Barnabas on the Desert Episcopal Church in Scottsdale, AZ. Built in 1960 under the direction of noted architectural firm of T.S. Montgomery, the 350-seat sanctuary features columns and arches, a… View this post

    It’s always been amusing to watch the band set up. The guitarist brings his amp, a few pedals, and maybe a couple of guitars. The bass player brings his instrument, and often his own amp. The drummer uses the church’s drum kit, but he brings his own sticks and takes the time to tune and position the drums to his liking. But the vocalist just uses whatever mic is handed to them. My experience has been that the choice of… View this post

    Grundorf has announced the addition of three new utility transport dollies to help musicians and audio pros move their equipment easier. Each of the three available models is manufactured from 13-ply Baltic birch wood, which supports considerable weight without flexing. To prevent abrasions to the dolly’s edges, the wood has been finished with rounded edges for protection against damage and splintering. A convenient carry handle is an integral part of the dolly’s wood platform. Being carved directly from the dolly’s… View this post

    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   Evaluating your monitor settings is a crucial step during the sound check and during the church service.  Consider these three signs your monitor mix is bad or had gone bad. 1. A musician isn’t playing in time or looks lost. This will happen if you didn’t get the right monitor mix during the sound check. It can also happen if they can’t hear the monitor due to the addition of the… View this post
