    The venue where I serve as technical director has recently had a number of touring acts come through.  With each tour, there are always special technical requirements that the artists need, particularly in these tight economic times where few of them are able to travel with everything they need. The last three events, the venue was responsible for providing the entire house system, and for two of them, I served as the front of house engineer. When a tour group… View this post

    Built in the mid-1920s, The Moody Church in downtown Chicago accommodates more than 3,700 worshippers, making it the largest non-pillared auditorium in the metro area. Amplification inside the vast oval sanctuary was once fraught with challenges until the recent replacement of a 20-year-old main cluster with a new Meyer Sound MINA line array system. “To the untrained eye, the new cluster doesn’t look that much different,” admits Michael Arman, the church’s audio/visual technical coordinator, “so you might not notice we… View this post

    EAW has appointed Steve Davis to the position of service manager. A long-time member of the extended EAW family, Davis for many years held this same position, before shifting his focus to his company Performance Audio of New England (PANE), where he continued to contribute with his service expertise. Coincidentally, PANE has been located in the same mill complex where EAW designs and manufactures its loudspeakers. The announcement was made by EAW president Jeff Rocha and reflects the company’s dedication… View this post

    The sanctuary of the church of the Salvation Army in Clearwater, FL, was recently outfitted with a new sound reinforcement system by Florida-based CSI: Christian Sound Installations that is headed by Danley Sound Labs loudspeakers, subwoofers, monitors and processing. “The main trouble with the old system was a profound lack of intelligibility together with deeply uneven coverage,” explains Paul Garner of CSI. “It started out as a tight-packed center cluster of horn-loaded cabinets, and the church paid someone too much… View this post

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   I wanted to provide a glimpse into what I think are some significant changes that will be coming over the next 5-10 years that will effect what we as church techs in large contemporary or modern churches do every week. First let me say that I in no way think our current model is necessarily bad. And by current model I mean the highly produced services that can often resemble rock concerts. Big,… View this post

    Rain Computers has released the follow up to the LiveBook Mobile Audio Workstation line. Called LiveBook A2 (the “A” is for audio, the “2” because it’s the second generation) offers an array of new features including quad-core processing, discrete graphics and the choice of a glossy or matte high resolution 15.6-inch screen. LiveBook A2 is powered by Intel’s “Sandy Bridge” series of mobile processors. But unlike common, off-the-shelf computers, this one is designed by Rain to guarantee the performance and… View this post

    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   Water was streaming out the end of our driveway. The main water pipe going to the house had sprung a leak.  There were only two ways of fixing the problem; digging up the driveway for finding and repairing the leak or running a new line without disturbing the driveway at all.  A problem with an audio cable isn’t always solved by running a new cable. Sometimes you’ve got to look under… View this post
