    This article is the first part in a series on decibels, excerpted from Bob Katz’s book Mastering Audio: The Art and The Science. So many of us take our meters for granted—after all, recording is simple: all you do is peak to 0 dB and never go over! But things only appear that simple until you discover that with the same material, one machine says that it peaks to -1 dB, another machine shows an OVER level, and yet your… View this post

The Vi1 provides an intuitive mix surface, routing and the ability to easily reconfigure custom fader banks for the operators and their associated worship team.  The campus of Calvary Spokane is located in northern Spokane, Washington.

    Artificial reverberation, or echo as it is often called, is one of the most useful effects available to the recording engineer. Recently there has been an explosion of reverb devices available in the marketplace, and to compete for your dollars, they all must claim to be the best if not the ultimate machine of all time. Actually, each has strong and weak points, so the purpose of this article will be to investigate the four basic types and see how… View this post

    Mic’ing drums in a contemporary worship environment is a learned craft and skill that relies on technical know-how, a musical ear, partnership with musicians (and the drummer in particular), favorable acoustics, well-behaved loudspeakers, reasonable financial investment, and lots of patience. How’s that for mix of encouraging and disheartening words? The need for sound reinforcement in contemporary worship and gospel music is similar to that in modern pop music (including R&R, R&B, soul, funk, electric folk, etc.), especially where musical content… View this post
