    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   Wedding horror stories abound.  They remain in the memory of the bride and groom (and their families…) and those memories often include anger, frustration, or anxiety.  When something goes wrong in a regular church service, you fix the problem and move on. People might remember, but it’s usually no big deal.  The difference is that a wedding is a one time event. I have been asked to run sound for weddings… View this post

    Provided by Sweetwater.   Q: Is a handheld condenser better for live vocals than a standard dynamic mic? Why? A: There’s not an easy answer to this question, as there are advantages and disadvantages to both types of microphones. The most noticeable difference will usually be an extended high-frequency response in a condenser microphone when compared to a dynamic, which—in and of itself—most would probably consider “better.” They certainly do have the potential to be more accurate. However, there are… View this post

    Provided by Sweetwater.   This Tech Tip Of The Day come to you in editorial form because we wanted to tackle one of the more difficult recording issues faced by engineers, whether a seasoned pro or a project studio newbie, recording vocals. This job requires musical knowledge, technical expertise, possession of (or at least an awareness of) microphones, preamps and mixers, and a solid grounding in the psychology of performance. However, we’re going to leave most of the equipment-related information… View this post

    Provided by Sweetwater.   Q: Not long ago I set out to start my own studio, and so far it’s been going well. Recently I was reading a list of essential tools for the studio and noticed it included the dB meter. I understand why these meters are useful for live engineers, but are they really that necessary for studio use? A: Our ears are finely tuned instruments, capable of perceiving an incredibly wide range of volume levels and frequencies.… View this post

    The overdubbing stage can be something as simple as fixing or replacing some of the basic tracks (like the bass, rhythm guitar, solos, and lead vocal) or as complex as adding sophisticated layering of horns and strings, multiple guitars, keyboards, and background vocals. It’s also the phase of the project during which the most experimenting is done, since even the most meticulously designed parts sometimes don’t work and require some alteration. The Recording Plan When budgets get blown out the… View this post

    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   The argument forever burns on as to whether or not a church should be run like a business.  Regardless of which side you’re on, one thing is for certain, the church is primarily a volunteer-oriented organization. Unfortunately, that can lead to a poor volunteer mentality. Let’s overcome that! Recently I was thinking about all of the negative mind-sets related to volunteer work in audio ministry.  “He’s just a volunteer.  He *will*… View this post
