    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   Nothing’s more frustrating than creating a sub-par mix because the musicians don’t understand what they’re doing and the audio engineer doesn’t have the authority to say anything. In church audio, a professional level of musicianship can’t be demanded but musicians do need to think like professionals.

 Such musicians aren’t intentionally causing problems. They’ve adopted poor habits or aren’t able to perform at the expected level. The mix suffers and the congregation… View this post

    Yes, I know. When I first saw TouchMix at NAMM two years ago, I thought it was a toy, but while I was at Summer NAMM’s new TEC Tracks, across the aisle QSC was presenting “the world’s most powerful and portable easy-to-use compact digital mixer” with hourly live performances. TouchMix is well into its second year and second software revision, so I knew it was stable. Greg Mackie and Peter Watts consulted with QSC to design this unique little mixer,… View this post

    PSW Top 20 presented by Renkus-Heinz   It is said that “a picture is worth a thousand words” and nowhere is this more applicable than when trying to teach complex concepts. A graphical depiction can often convey an idea better, and quicker, than a whole bunch of words. This is because our brains are mainly image processors, not word processors; the part of our brain that processes words is actually very small in comparison to the part that processes visual… View this post
