    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 Brian Ever since digital consoles came out along with their attendant editing programs, everyone has joked about how one day we’ll be mixing shows from our house.

    Congregación Conquistando Fronteras Church in Mexico City recently installed Allen & Heath’s GLD-112 digital mixer with ME-1 personal monitors as its new upgraded front of house and monitor system. With increasing technical demands, the church was having to regularly hire in additional audio equipment from local rental companies to manage its larger events, so it decided to install a new system that could manage all of its technical requirements. “We knew that a digital mixer was the answer, and we… View this post
