    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   Imagine you walk into church one day and are told, “your job just got easier because we aren’t using praise bands any more…we’re going back to the pastor leading hymns.” Last night, while reading a church magazine, I noticed the variety of advertisements. Interested in improving your church? How about: • Softer chairs • Different colored pews • Software to monitor giving, attendance, birthdays, and the member’s favorite tv show •… View this post

    This article is provided by HX Audio Lab   Several common questions are often asked related to loudspeaker sound reproduction, such as: 1. Why does a loudspeaker sound different when moved to another room? 2. Why does my new bookshelf loudspeaker sound terrible at home? They were great in the showroom! 3. Why does the loudspeaker sound muddy/bassy inside a room? It was great when I listened to it outside. There are other questions, but readers can get the point… View this post

    This article is provided by Commercial Integrator   Networked audio has been around since the late 20th century. However, that’s like saying rail travel has been in place for 200 years. There’s a big experiential difference between climbing aboard a mid-century diesel on the LIRR (Long Island Rail Road) to Patchogue and taking the Acela from Boston to D.C. Both will get you between points on a map but the latter will do it faster, more efficiently and more effectively.… View this post

      With the wealth of knowledge about power available here on ProSoundWeb it’s a good idea to constantly evaluate our knowledge of power, or actually, your knowledge about power. Rather than submit you to the typical “right or wrong” questions with exact numerical answers, I’ve elected to provide a different means of self-evaluation. The test is “open book”, based upon the information shared in the article series and other resources, and I can tell you up front that the answer… View this post

    This article is provided by Gary Zandstra.com.   In the eyes of some people, I “cheat” when mixing.  This cheating usually takes place when I’m working with a band and/or singers that I don’t know that well. One of the common things that we face in church production today is “the worship team” - usually four to five singers that vocally lead the service or presentation. Too many times to count, I’ve found myself mixing and not knowing a single… View this post

    Courtesy of Omega Studios.   You don’t have to be the president of CBS Records to notice that the recording industry has changed a great deal in the last decade or two. For most artists, gone are the days of large multi-million dollar budgets for album projects. Nowadays, the recording process has got to be streamlined and efficient in order to be effective.  But even in the old days, there were certain things that bands would do to maximize their… View this post

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   A few years ago, Tim Cool from Visioneering posted a thought-provoking post of the same name (The Cost Of Getting It Wrong). It’s very good, and I suggest you go read the whole thing. He asks several questions related to staffing, building and designing. As I thought about what he wrote, one particular question resonated with me: What will it cost to have the wrong audio and acoustics in your worship center? Again,… View this post

    Editor’s Note: Here’s an interesting thread from the PSW Live Audio Board (LAB) forums. It’s lightly edited for grammar and formatting. Enjoy. Posted by JC I’m going to set up some mics to record the impending “weather-pocalypse” tonight. What should I use? Here’s what I have available: 2x AT3035 2x AT3031 1x SM57 1x Audix i5 1x R0DE NT2A 2x dBx RTA-M 3x Audio-Technica handheld dynamic mics. Unfortunately, I don’t own any kick drum mics.

    This article is provided by Church Soundcheck.com.   This question is exceedingly simple to answer, yet easily eighty percent of churches choose the wrong answer. The reality is that most churches try to place the house mixing desk (console) in a location that hides the equipment as much as possible. Their solution is driven by aesthetics, mostly because that is what they understand. My guess is that they haven’t asked their sound team volunteers, the ones who will be actually… View this post

    This article is provided by Rane Corporation.   In space, no one can hear you scream ... because there is no air or other medium for sound to travel. Sound needs a medium; an intervening substance through which it can travel from point to point; it must be carried on something. That something can be solid, liquid or gas. They can hear you scream underwater ... briefly. Water is a medium. Air is a medium. Nightclub walls are a medium.… View this post
