    There are many things which shouldn’t happen during a worship service, yet still do. However, unless we’re cognizant of them sometimes it’s hard to prevent them. So I decided to create a list of those things that just shouldn’t happen in a worship service. Some of these may seem so silly, so expected, so taken for granted that they’re almost not worth saying. But you’d be surprised how many times I’ve seen these mistakes made in other churches, and even… View this post

    phantom power
    Bruce Bartlett 03/01/14 01:20 PM,
      Unsure about phantom power? Let’s clear up the mystery. Nearly all mixing consoles and audio interfaces provide phantom power at their microphone input connectors. Most condenser mics need phantom power to operate, so you simply plug the mic into the mixer to power it. But the ways we use and connect phantom power can make a big difference in how well those mics work. So what, exactly is phantom power, and how do we apply it effectively? Understanding It… View this post

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   Getting the low end of the mix is one of the most difficult things in mixing in that if you don’t get it right, you may lose the power of the mix, make the mix too muddy, or cover up either the kick or the bass. The idea is to hear both the kick and the bass and have them work together so you can feel the pulse of the song. Here’s… View this post

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   One of the most challenging aspects of doing production in a church setting is that church happens every week. During the week we have meetings, stuff to fix and install, TPS reports to file and a host of other things to get done. It’s pretty easy to drop into mechanical way of doing things. Sometimes, we do things because we’ve always done them that way. Other times, we do whatever we inherited from… View this post

    Ohio’s oldest and largest public community college, Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C) recently invested in an Audient ASP8024 for its Recording Arts and Technology program. Describing the British-made console as “a welcome addition to the program’s current list of analog desks,” instructor and staff technician Kevin Baylon explains, “We have never had a true in-line console to demonstrate how signal flow can be routed and re-routed through its architecture. I hope that students will appreciate and understand the ASP8024’s abilities in… View this post

    For the 82,529 fans that braved forecasts of cold, snowy weather predicted for Super Bowl XLVIII on February 2, Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers delivered an enthusiastic show that was long on great musicianship and killer showmanship. A pair of DiGiCo SD5 digital audio consoles used for both front-of-house and monitor mixes made sure the show also sounded great. The SD5 used for the FOH mix was positioned at the NFC end zone end of the Met… View this post

    digital consoles
    Andrew "Fletch" Fletcher 02/27/14 05:12 PM,
    I remember the first time I used a digital console for a live show, at a corporate event that was taking place on an airfield in the California desert. I was mixing in a tent with the “talking heads” on lavalier micro­phones, standing in front of a para­bolic set, and rented air conditioning units giving off about 90 dB of noise. Outside, professional drivers were racing the cars of the company put­ting on the show. A tight corner on the… View this post
