    It’s early days for the Hennepin Technical College (HTC) Audio Production students, but initial reports suggest that they are getting on a treat with the recently installed Audient ASP4816 console. “Students have already noted that the simplicity in design and operation is easier to wrap their heads around than virtual controllers and ‘layers’ that may be found on some of the digital equipment in other rooms,” says Matt Holmes of the Audio Production Faculty. This is thanks in no small… View this post

    Since its U.S. launch at InfoComm, the Yamaha Rivage PM10 Digital Audio Console has captured quite a bit of attention. The national demos have been a driving force since early September around the country when the ‘shakedown’ began as the Company fine tunes the software and prepares for the release. This is a standard part of the Yamaha quality assurance policy to confirm the absolute reliability the Company is known for. The response to the console’s sound quality, layout, and… View this post

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.  ; A few years ago, one of my younger readers asked me about a “hit by a bus list” (HBABL for short). So, I thought it might be good topic for an article. First, it might be helpful to define what at “hit by a bus list” even is. The definition may vary from church to church, but basically it seeks to answer the question, what happens if you’re hit by a bus on… View this post

    This article is provided by Church   Skill: the ability to do something well; expertise. I recently asked the members of the Church Soundcheck (CSC) discussion board for their thoughts on the key technically oriented skills that a church sound tech must have (or strive for). It resulted in a lot of great input, which I’ve whittled down into this list. 1. Have a musical ear. When we say people have “good ears,” we mean that they know what… View this post

    Preserving our hearing is critically important, but that’s not what motivated me to write this piece. Really, I just can’t stand bad sound! To a certain extent, it used to be somewhat excusable if a live show was loud and didn’t sound all that great. Sound reinforcement systems have come a long way in the past decade alone, but ‘back in the day’” good clean power was harder to come by, and loudspeakers just were not designed to produce high-fidelity… View this post

    This article is provided by Gary   Over the last 30-plus years, I’ve served on numerous tech teams at various ministries and have learned many things – many of them the hard way. While nothing replaces knowing the tech side of the audio craft, there’s a lot more to being successful in the role. Here are some things I’ve picked up along the way, combined with the results of an informal survey of worship leaders about what they want… View this post
