    Feed The Brain. The primary job of a measurement rig is to acquire electrical and acoustical signals and feed them to the processor so that it can analyze, compare, slice, dice, fold, spindle and mutilate those signals and produce multi-colored charts, graphs and the all-important squiggly lines. “But my software can produce squiggly lines all by itself without all those bothersome wires, preamps and microphones. Isn’t that enough?” Maybe. It depends on whether you are getting paid to pose or… View this post

So, I thought it might be good topic for an article. First, it might be helpful to define what at “hit by a bus list” even is. The definition may vary from church to church, but basically it seeks to answer the question, what happens if you’re hit by a bus on… View this post

    This article is provided by Gary   Over the last 30-plus years, I’ve served on numerous tech teams at various ministries and have learned many things – many of them the hard way. While nothing replaces knowing the tech side of the audio craft, there’s a lot more to being successful in the role. Here are some things I’ve picked up along the way, combined with the results of an informal survey of worship leaders about what they want… View this post
