    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   You could potentially improve your mix quality by taking one little step: learning how the channel EQ controls affect sound frequencies.  They may not work like you expect. Turning Knobs I recall seeing the EQ knobs labeled “High” and “Low” as I looked upon the sound board during my first time mixing. “I know what those mean,” I thought. “I can increase or decrease those high and low frequencies.” I was… View this post

    St. Leander Catholic Church in San Leandro, California, recently reconfigured their sanctuary to bring the worship experience closer to their members. The redesign included the installation of a new sound reinforcement system featuring Tannoy Qflex array loudspeakers. Leo’s Professional Audio, based in Oakland, California, was asked to assist in designing and installing the new sound system. “The redesign involved moving the alter from the back of the rectangular sanctuary to the center of one of the longer walls,” explains Graham… View this post

    This article is provided by Bartlett Microphones.   Perhaps the most challenging sound-reinforcement job—in terms of feedback—is amplifying children. It’s often hard to hear children in dramatic or musical productions. That’s because most children don’t project. Since they produce a low volume on stage, you must turn up their mics a lot to hear them—resulting in feedback. Here I’ll offer some creative solutions to help those young voices be heard. I won’t cover wireless mics—even though they work well—because they… View this post

    Once again, the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) is calling on all aspiring musicians to pick up a musical instrument and play during its sixth annual National Wanna Play Music Week (May 7-13, 2012). “People spend too much time regretting the fact that they don’t already play a musical instrument, when it’s as simple as picking up an instrument and playing for the pure enjoyment of it,” says Joe Lamond, president and CEO of NAMM. “National Wanna Play Music… View this post

    Point Source Audio has introduced the CO-5w, a new “unsinkable” waterproof earworn microphone outfitted with a special water-protected mic element. The CO-5w offers omnidirectional polar pattern that allows a 360-degree pick-up of sound, providing a natural blend of voice and ambience. The design of the CO-5w also lends itself to reduced speech produced “popping sounds” and voice overloads in close mic applications. “We’re super excited about our ‘unsinkable’ feature,” says Yvonne Ho, vice president of marketing at Point Source Audio.… View this post

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   Almost weekly, I receive an e-mail asking for advice on which mixer to buy. The answer, of course, is always the same; it depends. No seriously, that’s the answer. Because there is no “one” right mixer for every church. There are quite a few that hit a sweet spot in terms of a performance/value ratio, but even those are not right for every situation. So what I thought I’d do is walk through… View this post
