    I’ve often joked that my funeral ceremony will include a small monitor wedge next to the casket, with a sign on my chest that reads “I’d like a little more of me in the monitor.” It’s a way of finding humor in a comment that sound mixers hear all too often.  On a more serious note, watch out! Trying to accommodate “more of me” can quickly provoke an endless string of errors that can turn the strongest mix master into… View this post

    Modern worship doesn’t always call for a choir, but there are still many worship services where a choir is involved.  Choirs used to be the staple of the worship experience in most churches—I grew up in a church where they were located in the “choir loft” for the whole service, singing all of the hymns with the rest of us as well as doing a special number or two themselves. This choir consisted of 40-50 members, accompanied by acoustic piano,… View this post

    When Living Hope Church in Piperton, Tennessee, moved into its new 700-seat worship center, one of the main goals was to achieve high-impact, high-resolution sound. “Having started as a portable church, we wanted our first permanent facility to make a big statement about how far we’ve come,” says Tim Johnson, technical director for the suburban Memphis church. “That meant the best in sound and video, but within a definite budget.” The church decided that they were very interested in a… View this post

    Allen & Heath’s iLive digital mixing system has been selected by FOH engineer, David Millward, as the console of choice on Morrissey’s 2012 worldwide tour. Millward selected an iLive-80 Control Surface and iDR10 modular MixRack fitted with a Dante Card for multitrack recording and virtual soundchecking because the production required a small, lightweight console for travel. “I’ve been using iLive on tours with Tindersticks over the last couple of years, most recently renting a pair of R72 surfaces, and I’ve… View this post

    The BBC will broadcast the London 2012 Olympic Games from the specially built International Broadcast Centre (IBC) in the Olympic Park, using no fewer than seven Harman Studer Vista and OnAir consoles, along with a Route 6000 network core. This will enable the BBC to take feeds from 34 participating Olympic Games venues for domestic transmission through its network. Following a promise to broadcast “every session of every sport every day,” this will amount to some 2,500 hours of TV… View this post

    When Hurricane Katrina hit in 2005, Derek W. Pardoe’s personal studio located on the Gulf Coast was one of the casualties. He recently completed reconstruction of the space and took delivery of an Audient ASP4816 compact analogue recording console as the centerpiece of the studio. “There are no options in this price range that have this much functionality and quality,” Pardoe explains. “It has the functionality of a large format desk with a smaller footprint and I love it.”  Pardoe… View this post

    BeatleShow! at the Saxe Theater in the Planet Hollywood Resort Casino in Las Vegas strives to present an authentic experience, and has been termed by some critics as the closest you can get to a real Beatles concert. Font of house engineer/producer Mick McCoy provides the mix on a Yamaha PM5D digital mixing console, noting, “I’ve been using the 5D since it came out. I was on the team that built Disney’s Hyperion Theater at Disneyland as the A1, and… View this post
