    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   I’ve had several people ask me about my vocal effects lately, so I thought I’d write a post about it. A few caveats: First, this is descriptive, not prescriptive. I’m not telling you what you should do, but what I’m currently doing. Second, this has changed about 4-5 times over the last 4-5 years. My process changes to adapt to the hardware I have available. If Waves comes through with some of their… View this post

    When I started working with audio, most companies built their own main and monitor loudspeaker enclosures. Some did it because it could save them money, but the majority did it because they wanted products that were simply not commercially available, so they had to design and build the systems themselves. Today there are a multitude of loudspeaker companies making a wide variety of different enclosures – with more designs hitting the market seemingly every week – but there are still… View this post

    German electro house duo Digitalism has been touring internationally this year with Allen & Heath iLive digital mixing systems for front of house and monitors. “Early on in the tour, the band only carried one iLive system, to keep monitors consistent,” explains house engineer Daniel MacBean. “However, we were so impressed with how easy the system is to tour with and set up that we decided to get a second system in for front of house. It literally takes 30… View this post

    Recordings of worship services can be a blessing in many ways, and quality recordings aren’t that hard to achieve. That is, if there is a firm understanding of the fundamentals. Previously, we looked at how to connect a mixing console to a recording device, considering connector types, Y-cables and identifying the right connectors for your specific situation. (Click here to read that article). But there’s another option: connecting a console’s XLR (three-pin pro audio) connector to a recorder’s RCA or… View this post
