Live instrumental and chorale performances are a regular part of church services, and inspirational videos are… View this post

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   This isn’t the first time I’ve built a snake like this, nor is it the first time I’ve written about it. But we’ve made a few updates, so I thought I’d write a new article on them. This particular snake in question is what we use for our percussion or winds player, though sometimes it gets dragged over to the guitar position depending on the weekend. The design goals were thus: create a… View this post

    Over the past several years, a technique most commonly called “aux fed subs” has been developed for reducing low-frequency “muddiness” from front-of-house loudspeaker systems. This technique has resulted in considerable benefits over a wide variety of sound reinforcement applications, but there is confusion as to what it encompasses and what it accomplishes. Let’s clarify the details and describe the set up of an aux fed subwoofer system. We’ll also be addressing some frequently asked questions on the topic. In a… View this post

    Let’s face it -  the live sound reinforcement realm presents some microphone challenges that regularly threaten sound quality. Look at the conditions. The monitors feed back.

And then there are the other mic-related gremlins breath pops, lighting buzzes, wireless-mic glitches, and even electric shocks. So let’s have a look at solving at least some… View this post
