    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   It’s a new year, and now that we’re all rested up from Christmas, it’s time to start looking at how we can improve our systems—specifically audio—this year. Certainly big-ticket items like new PAs, new consoles or new bands (just kidding) are nice, but sometimes we have to make incremental improvements. Oddly enough, sometimes these small improvements add up to a big improvement that sometimes negate the need for a big spend. Here’s a… View this post

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   Most recording engineers (both those learning and experienced) place way too much stock in the kind of gear they’re using. It seems like if the gear is not vintage, a name brand or high priced, it’s automatically shunned, but the major variables that go into making a good recording always lie in other places than the gear itself. Here’s a list of recording variables that you must be aware of when recording… View this post
