    It’s New Year’s resolution time again. Many of you who are my Facebook friends know that my resolution for 2011 was based on the theory that doing nothing is actually doing something. Put into practice, this became a goal of not shaving for a year, and I ended up growing the same beard that I had in high school. It was a fun quest, and had side benefits such as totally confusing publishers of recent “congrats on 40 years in… View this post

Designed to be “as frugal as possible in this economy,” the tour includes an 8-piece band and a full complement of A/V equipment with multi-video servers and five projector screens, all of… View this post

    Dear Old Soundman: Studio engineers verses front-of-house engineers - can they be one and the same? Studio guys don’t want to let us get a shot at their jobs, because we would wipe the floor with them! Unfortunately, we would also wipe the floor with their clients! Do I really want to spend three months listening to some rock star (who tries to pretend he’s a man of the people) reveal how completely dependent he is on the click track,… View this post

    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 person on the team. It’s also common not… View this post

    Powersoft K3 and M50Q DSP+ETH amplifiers were recently installed at the Music Hall in Worpswede, Germany.  Worpswede is a small village that has been hosting a lively artistic community since the end of the 19th century.
