    Developed more than six decades ago, AKG achieved a breakthrough in recording and broadcast technology with the introduction of its first dynamic microphone, the D12. Today, AKG has introduced the newly designed D12 VR large-diaphragm cardioid microphone intended specifically for kick drum live and recording applications. D12 VR (vintage sound re-issue) offers a thin diaphragm within its newly designed capsule, which enhances low-frequency performance.  With phantom power disabled, the D12 delivers accurate, pure character from the sound source.  With phantom… View this post

    Once, Broadway’s Tony Award-winning Best New Musical, relies on DPA Microphones’ 4060 Omnidirectional Miniature Microphones to provide a transparent sound in a small, discreet capsule. Based on the 2007 Academy Award-winning film of the same name, Once takes place on a set designed to give audience members the illusion that they are watching a true event unfold, making them feel as though they are right on stage with the actors. The natural sounding DPA 4060s add to this impression. With… View this post

    The Olson M-191 is one of the more interesting-looking microphones I’ve run across, a hybrid metal and plastic unit that has a style all it’s own. Olson Electronics may not be a familiar name. Started by Sid Olson in Akron, OH in 1961, the company grew into a large retail chain that carried a wide variety of consumer electronics, including stereos, CB radios, TV antennas, parts, tubes, batteries, and car audio equipment. Olson Electronics was sold in the late 1960s… View this post

    It’s clear to us that God’s laws of physics must operate differently inside a church than outside. After several moments of grueling research, painstaking addition, and… Well, we offer these amendments. Regrettably, they are true stories passed along by members of our ChurchSoundcheck Discussion Group. They arrived via email, so you know they’re true! Amendment #1: We’ve been pointing microphones in the wrong direction! A friend of ours went into church early one Sunday morning only to find that all… View this post

    Most of us who have been involved in church production have had at least one (I have many) mistake or failure during a service where you just want to disappear in the booth.  One of my most egregious mistakes took place a number of years ago.  It was so significant that I still wear the scars from it.  Back in “the day” when video projection was almost nonexistent because of the huge cost of projectors I was serving on staff… View this post

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   Not too long ago, in a church not that far away, the battle had begun. It started off innocently enough. The bass player and drummer had to share a monitor because there were not enough to go around (budget constraints, you know). The first request was for a little more bass in the monitors. That was followed by a request for more kick and snare, then a little more bass. Now the drummer… View this post
