Or how about the rumor that we collect large bags of cash for a… View this post

    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   Constructing a new sound booth in an existing sanctuary is not an easy task.

Remember The Line-of-Sight This is probably the most important piece of information you should know-sound booth operators should hear what the congregation hears. A booth located out of direct line-of-sight of the main speakers… View this post

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   Have you heard the expression, “Stuff expands to fill the space available?” It used to be true in my life. When we lived in our first, tiny little house, we didn’t have that much stuff. In fact, it all fit in a single moving van when we bought our next, larger house. However, after 10 years there we had a lot of stuff. In fact, the once empty basement was full. It took… View this post

    Provided by HOW To Church Sound Workshops.   Important lessons can often be learned while doing humble tasks — lessons that can later apply to everything else in your life. So it was with my 19 year-old son Alan’s Honda Civic. He had received it the year before, and while it ran pretty well, there was a nagging engine miss at idle. He pretty much worked around it, slipping the automatic transmission into Neutral at stoplights so it wouldn’t shake… View this post
