Old Production Takes From an Old Guy

Month: March 2009 (Page 1 of 2)

The Drum Condo

Fresh on the heels of our drum mic’ing webinar, I thought I would post some details of our now famous “Drum Condo.” Perhaps ‘now famous’ is a slight overstatement; still, I’ve talked enough about it that I thought it merited a post. If you’ve read this blog for more than a month, you know that before I would put pencil to paper to sketch anything out, the first thing we would determine would be our design goals. If you don’t know what the goals are before you start any project, you have no idea if you’ll be successful or not. In this case, we had some pretty clear goals.

Project Design Goals

  • Attenuate drum volume significantly (meaning >20 dB SPL; >30 would be even better).
  • Modular construction so it could be taken apart easily and moved out of the room.
  • Visually appealing–it should look built-in (we were hoping we might not have to move it if we made it pretty enough).
  • Big enough to hold our standard 2 tom, 3 cymbal kit
  • Cost less than $1,500.
  • Easily built with stuff we could by at Home Depot.

That was pretty much it. It was with those goals in mind that I began sketching these plans. Actually, our worship pastor, Jon, came up with the original drawings. His design was similar to what we ended up with; I made some modifications to it, and drew up construction plans. These are my actual drawings, made at Home Depot the morning we started the project. This is not my ideal design scenario, but it’s what we had to work with. On that morning, we were 12 days away from the first serivice in the new space, and we hadn’t even started A/V install yet.

The Back or Entrance Wall The Back or Entrance Wall
The Back/Side Wall The Back/Side WallThat’s pretty much what I came up with in a few minutes. I’ll go on record as stating that I’m no expert in designing drum enclosures. And one could argue that a rectangle is not the optimal shape for such a “building.” However, one of our design goals to was to make it look built-in. And the rectangle shape certainly does in this room. While we probably could have added angles, it would have added complexity, time and made it difficult to achieve our other goals.

As far as materials went, it’s pretty standard. I’ve done a lot of design/construction in other lives, so I stuck with basic 24″ on center 2×4 walls. The two least visible walls (the Back/Entrance wall and the Back/Side wall–we never really know which side is the “front…”) are sheathed in 5/8″ B/C plywood. To increase stiffness and make sure it was as air-sealed as possible, we put a bead of PL Subfloor Adhesive down on every stud and the top and bottom plate. We squared it up and stapled the sheathing down with a 1/4″ narrow crown stapler.

The back wall is extremely light and stiff. For the entrance wall, I decided that taking a simple 32″ prehung hollow-core door and cutting it down would be the easiest. We framed it up with that in mind. That wall is also pretty light. The other two walls were more complicated.

Both remaining walls needed plexiglass windows in them for visibility. We went with 1/4″ sheets 36″ x 72″. I framed the openings 1″ smaller in both dimensions and used my router to create a rabbet for the plexi. We set the plexi in place in a bed of clear 100% silicone adhesive. The rest of the wall was skinned in 1/4″ luan underlayment–which seems odd at first. We did this mainly for air sealing. We followed the same procedure as on the other two walls, a continuous bead of PL and staples. Looking back, this was probably overkill, but it really didn’t add much weight, cost or time, so I don’t feel bad about it.

To finish the walls, we “sided” them (for lack of a better word) in 1×4 pine. We chose this because that’s what the interior walls of the sanctuary are covered in. Remember the goal–make it look built-in so we don’t have to move it every week. These two walls are heavy.

The corners were made in such a way that the 1×6 and 1×8 vertical trim pieces overlap the adjoining wall and create a nice visual and air seal. Each wall is affixed to it’s neighbor with a simple eye-hook fastener; the type you might use to keep a screen door closed.

So that’s the basic frame of the condo. Tomorrow, I’ll talk more about the roof and how we finished off the inside. The next day, we’ll get to what’s really important–how it works!

Drum Mic’ing Webinar Recording

It’s here…by popular demand! We had a great time the other night with Jason Cole, Dave Stagl and myself talking about drum mic’ing and how to do it better. Thanks to the MacHeist bundle, I recorded the conversation, and it’s presented here pretty much in it’s entirely.

I say “pretty much” because there were a few times when for some strange reason, I lost Dave’s audio completely. I could tell by the look on his face he was making a great point, but I couldn’t hear it. Thankfully, he repeated himself, so we got the gist of it.

I know of several people who tried to join the session but were unable to because of some TokBox issues. We’re sorry about that, but are glad we captured the audio.

The three of us had enough fun doing it that we plan to do it again in the future, so stay tuned to our blogs for upcoming sessions. In the meantime, enjoy Drum Mic’ing!

Church Tech Arts Webinars: Drum Micing

Drum Mic’ing Webinar Address

Starting at 9 PM CST (10 PM EST) Jason Cole, Dave Stagl and I will be hosting a TokBox webinar on drum mic’ing. To tune in follow this link:

http://www.tokbox.com/conf/86v3xkdtutfxgh6n/t

It’s free, but please, please, please, put headphones on and mute your microphone when you join the chat. Nasty feedback ensues when people leave their built-in mics open and listen through the built-in speakers. And we’re sound guys, right? No feedback for us!

We will open it up for questions near the end, and you can use the IM feature to ask questions as we go along.

Thanks!

Drum Mic’ing Webinar

Tomorrow night, Thursday, March 26 at 10 PM EST, 9 PM CST, I will be hosting a TokBox webinar with Jason Cole and Dave Stagl. The topic (as the title suggests) is mic’ing drums. Both Jason and Dave have a ton of experience with this and will be sharing their knowledge. A few minutes before the session starts, I’ll post a link on here and on Twitter so you can join us.

A few notes on TokBox: If you’ve not used TokBox before, here are some guidelines. First it’s free to sign up, which is nice. Second, while it’s a video chat, you don’t have to have a camera to join, you can do audio-only. Third–and this is important–WEAR HEADPHONES. We’ve had issues in the past when the built-in mic is picked up by the built-in speakers of people’s computers and causes a nasty feedback loop. And come on, we’re sound guys, right?

Also, when you roll your mouse over your square (either video or generic box), you’ll see a little mic icon. Please click that to mute yourself when you join. We’ve heard entire conversations that people have had with their spouses, kids and neighbors because the mic wasn’t off. We’ll open it up for questions, and there is a IM-type chat feature for comments and questions as well.

I’m looking forward to this one quite a bit. I’ve been bouncing mic’ing questions off Dave and Jason for a while and always appreciate their input. I’ll also be sharing a little bit about our new “drum condo” drum isolation booth we built for our new worship space and how that’s working out.

So remember, Thursday, March 26, 10 PM EST, 9 PM CST. Check back here or on Twitter for a link. You can follow me on Twitter using the icon to the right. See you then!

The drum condo worked amazingly well. And it's a nice spot to set lights... The drum condo worked amazingly well. And it’s a nice spot to set lights…

Equipment List

Since I’ve received several comments on recent posts that start with, “Is that a [fill in the blank]?,” I thought I’d run down the list of  equipment we put in our new worship space. Almost all of it is new, since we came from another church that had a pretty complete, though not very good, A/V system installed. We came into the new space with a few DIs, some mics and an Expression 3 light board. So we pretty much started from scratch.

I had hoped to be a lot more involved in the exact gear selection, but for a whole variety of reasons, our consultant/installer put together the list of gear and we went with it. To be fair, the budget was far too small, and the timeline way too tight to do much more with it than he did. With a few exceptions, most of the selections are fine, and many of my exceptions come down to preference. I say that only to stave off comments that begin with, “Why did you choose [fill in the blank]? What lead you to that?” I’m playing the hand I was dealt; and for the most part, it’s not a bad hand.

Overall the system works quite well. As I’ve said before, the sound is significantly better than anyone expected. The lighting is pretty cool, and doesn’t blow the whopping two 20A circuits we had available for lighting (that’s right, we have 40A for lighting the entire sanctuary!). Video is fine, though I’m hoping we can get screens someday. Right now we’re projecting on off-white walls that are made from vertically oriented 1×4’s. Some find the vertical lines in the video artsy. I find it irritating, but that’s me. The downside of screens is that they would look totally out of place for the other church that actually owns the building.

So without further adieu or qualifiers, here’s our list of gear:

  • Drums: Kick–Heil PR-40; Snare Bottom–Rode NT-5; Snare Top–Shure SM57; Hat–Rode NT-5; Toms–EV N/D 408 (2); Cymballs–AKG Perception 170 (2)
  • Guitar Cab: EV 906 or Shure Beta 57 (the guitar players bring their own)

  • Color Kinetics Color Blast 12 (7)
  • Color Kinetics Color Blast 6 (10)
  • Color Kinetics 150W Power Supplies (4)
  • Wall Washes: 26″ (8) 39″ (3) Tri-color LED fixtures (can’t come up with a brand/model yet)

Video

  • iMac 20″ 2.66 running ProPresenter
  • BenQ SP820 4,000 Lumen Projectors (3)
  • Kramer VP-400N 1×4 VGA DA

Aside from a few thousand feet of cable, that’s pretty much it. I’ll be writing more detailed thoughts on specific pieces of gear in coming weeks and months as we have more time with it, but here are some initial thoughts.

The 01V is a nice little console, little being the operative word. It packs a lot of power into 19″, but with only 16 faders (plus a master), you do a lot of layer switching. Even setting up aux sends or effects requires a layer change. The only rotary encoders are for EQ. Running Studio Manager with it is pretty much mandatory. My biggest concern is lack of inputs. With only 26 input points, we’re going to run out. Then we’ll have to sub-mix, which I’m not crazy about.

I’m a fan of the Avioms, though I still contend the A-16D Pro is a waste of money. The regular A-16 does the same thing (sans Ethercons); though it does require the use of each of the personal mixer’s power supplies to send power. Still I don’t find the $850 price premium worth it.

The Presonus Digimax hasn’t blown me away so far. It’s expensive, and hasn’t clocked properly to the board. I think we’ll send it back for another model and use the change toward another channel of wireless. I do like the pretty, anodized blue knobs, though.

I’m quite happy with the Renkus speakers. They sound musical, and have plenty of intelligibility–something we were horribly lacking in our last space. With a few tweaks to the EQ this weekend, we should have them dialed in nicely. The EV subs sound good, if not a little muddy right now. In the next few weeks, we’ll be changing back to Aux fed subs and using them just for low end punch. Hopefully, that will clean them up.

The ColorBlast lights are solid. They start to run out of steam after about 15′, and we’ve have a lot of ours at 25′. We get away with it because our overall look is dimly lit and vibey. I do like that they get brighter as color saturation grows. I’m a huge fan of additive (rather than subtractive) color mixing. They do create some great looks on the band.

The Design Spot 250 is also reasonably bright, even with most of the colors on the color gobo (the deep red really cuts the output, however). It has a decent selection of gobos and effects, runs quiet and moves pretty quickly. For the price (around $1,800), it’s an excellent value. The light output matches the LED’s closely–a 575 might have been too much.

The BenQ projectors look surprisingly good (except the center one, which is either defective or we have a bad cable–haven’t figured out which yet). At the price ($1,200 or so), they’re a steal. I can’t help thinking that they’re going to end up being disposable, though. I’ll be interested to see how long they last. I haven’t run a full calibration on them yet, and will report back when I do.

So that’s kind of where we are. Over the next few weeks and months, we’ll be building some custom cables and interfaces; tweaking EQ and settings on the Nexia; and coming up with faster ways to set up and tear down. I’ll keep you posted on all that. I’ll also post some details on our drum condo, which worked far better than my expectations.

More to come…

First Round of Troubleshooting

You finally made it. After working 15 hour days for a week, the system is installed. The band arrives and soundcheck begins. You’re excited because you installed an Aviom system, and setting up monitors should be a breeze (mainly because you don’t have to do it!). You call for the kick drum, dial up the gain and stand back to wait while the musicians set the level on their personal mixers (which you’ve thoughtfully labeled with board tape). What you see, however, is confusion on the faces of your friendly musicians—more than usual.

Finally someone yells out, “Where’s the kick? It’s not on channel 1!” Quick, check your patch, “Uh, yeah it is!” “No, it’s not. Oh, it’s on channel 2.” Call for the snare, which should be on channel 2. “That’s on channel 3,” is the response. You talk into the talkback, which should be on channel 14. “Talkback is on channel 11!” Now you’re confused. You call someone else over to re-check the patch. Sure enough it’s all showing correct, but nothing is where it’s supposed to be.

That was our first Sunday. We ended up spending about 30 minutes try to track down the problem–and never did. We knew we were in deep weeds when we decided to reboot the board, and the Aviom channel assignments showed up different than they were before the power cycle, that is, a whole different wrong. Strangely enough, both the desk (a brand-new Yamaha 01V) and Studio Manager showed the patch as correct. Eventually the worship leader looked at me and said, “Sess, what do we do?” I made the decision to move ahead. We’d figure out where the stuff was on the fly, have them build their mixes and hope nothing changed during the services. It didn’t. The day was saved–barely.

After tear down, Erik, my trusty FOH engineer extraordinaire, and I stayed around for an hour troubleshooting. We followed the same principles of troubleshooting I’ve written about before. We kept moving up the signal chain, removing components trying to figure out what was causing the problem. We swapped Aviom cards. No change. We bypassed the Aviom distro, going straight out of the card to a personal mixer. No change. And when I say “no change,” what I mean is every time we powered off and back on, the Aviom channel configuration was different. Which is bad. In case you were wondering.

Someone who knows the board stopped by the tech booth to take a quick look. His pronouncement was that the output patch libraries must have been screwed up. The randomness of the problem made that seem unlikely, but we re-loaded the factory defaults anyway. We re-set the patch, and the randomness continued. We recalled all the factory defaults, still randomness. We gave up and went drinking.

Today, I tackled the problem anew. After a phone call to Yamaha tech support (which, by the way, was “closed until 1:30 PST for a company meeting.” Seriously?), I was instructed on the fine art of re-initializing the board (hold down “Store” while powering up). No dice. On a whim, while I was talking to the woman at Yamaha, and getting ready to re-initialize again, I decided to pull the word clock and ADAT cables for our external Presonus Digimax 96 preamp.

Now, the reason we were sold this particular preamp is because it’s supposed to sync to the 01V. And it does; if you don’t mind a constant stream of digital noise coming through on all 8 channels if you try to clock at 48K. We don’t, so we ended up using the pre as a word clock source. Oddly, this configuration produces no noise. It’s not ideal, but it should work. Should being the operative word.

So after pulling the ADAT and word clock cables, I re-initialized and tried again. Hey, it works! I power cycled the board 4 times and the talkback mic stayed in the same Aviom channel every time. Victory! After we patted ourselves on the back, I hung up the phone with the friendly Yamaha lady and started re-connecting things. I plugged in the ADAT line, the word clock line and immediately was faced with a word clock error. I re-set the 01V to use word clock in, and again, on a whim, tested my talkback mic. It had moved to channel 16 of the Aviom. What the…

I power cycled the board. This time, talkback was on channel 13. I pulled the ADAT and word clock and it went right back to 14, where it belongs. Now, this is where it gets freaky (if that wasn’t freaky enough). I decided to try synching word clock at 44.1K instead of 48K. Now, we’ve already determined that the Digimax won’t properly clock to the 01V at 48, but would it clock properly at 44.1? Yes it does! And the Aviom channel assignments stay put. This is really weird because the Aviom operates at 48K, not 44.1K.

I even tried the Digimax as a clock source at 44.1K and everything worked fine. As soon as I switch to 48K, the channel assignments go haywire. So now, we have a few options. Send the Digimax back and get a different model (and perhaps another channel of wireless with the money we save); keep the Digimax and get an external clock source to see if it improves things; or run everything at 44.1K. The later option works, but it ticks me off that we have to run at 44.1 and upsample to 48 for the Aviom. Spending even more on an external clock source makes spending the extra money on the Digimax seem like a real waste.

We don’t yet have a course of action, but at least we can get through this weekend while we figure one out. When we do, I’ll let you know what it is, and how it works out. In the meantime, remember–when troubleshooting, isolate as much as you can right from the start to see if you can get something working. And remember Occam’s Razor: Make as few assumptions as possible when trying to explain a phenomena. Everyone assumed it was a software issue; which really made no sense given the randomness of it. A bad patch, or a recall safe, or a bad output library would be wrong, but it would be the same wrong every time.

That’s my lesson for the week.

First Service In The New Space

Well, we made it. After a long few weeks, March 15 came upon us and we found ourselves having our first service in the new worship space. Aside from a few technical glitches (including our Aviom patching randomizing during soundcheck–more on that later…), the gatherings came together really, really well. Feedback from the community has been extremely positive, and it felt really good to be together in our new space. It looked pretty sweet, and sounded rather amazing. To look at the room, you’d think there would be extreme problems with flutter echo, slap-back and a host of standing waves. However, it really sounded good. We have some EQ to tweak, and I think we’ll put the subs back on an aux, but overall, the first shot at the EQ was pretty solid.

The last few weeks have provided tons of material for posts, and I’ll be working through them in the coming weeks. In the meantime, I thought I’d post some photos of the first gathering. You can click on any of them to enlarge.

Then again, we can duck down and hide; so there’s that…Like I said, this is just a taste of what’s to come. In future weeks, I’ll post a full run down of the gear, how it’s set up, what works well, what needs improved on and what we would change if we could do it over. There are a few niggling issues that bug me, but overall, I’m pleased with the system. I tend to be a pretty harsh critic and will focus on the 1 thing out of 100 that’s not quite right. I keep trying to remind myself that we got 96-98% of it right, and that’s not too shabby.

Couple that with the fact that we finished installing at midnight on Friday, and started setup for the first service 36 hours later, and it came off pretty dang well, and we have a lot to be proud of.

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the heroic efforts of some of our volunteers; Zach and Justin spent a solid 60+ hours with us there last week, and Kevin put in a goodly amount of time, too. Were it not for them, the system would not be anywhere near the state of done-ness that it is (which is probably 95%). And the last 5% is really simple stuff like making mic cords and getting stuff neatened up. So thanks guys! Our community owes you a lot!

I also have to mention our first-run volunteers who walked into a new system, in a new space and knocked it out of the park. Robyn, Tommy and Erik made things run super-smooth (especially Erik who was fighting what appears to be a very confused 01V). Thanks too, to John who came in and helped finish programming lights. You guys rock!

More to come…

Be Back Soon

I feel like I’ve been neglecting the blog these last two weeks, but if it’s any consolation, I’ve also been neglecting other things (like my family and sleep…). Our first service in the new space is tomorrow, March 15, and after that I’m taking a few days off to recover.

I have a ton of stuff to write about, and a load of pictures to share, all of which I’m excited to bring to you over the next few weeks.

More to come!

Two Year Anniversary

Today this blog is 2 years old! And according to WordPress, this is my 299th post. I should really have planned this out better; an even 300 would have been really poetic.

I’ve had a great time working on this little pet project over the last 2 years. Even better are the people I’ve met because of it. I was going to list all the people that I’ve gotten to know through this blog, but I realized I would certainly forget some. But you know who you are…

I am continually encouraged by the comments that readers leave, and am excited about the community that is happening here. Thank you for letting me into your RSS readers and web browsers. It’s really a joy to write this every week.

I’ll leave you with a gift given to me by my friend Colin, who I met because of this blog. The “inscription” (actually it was a Twitter post) read: Happy Blog B-Day to a wise TAD. I know it’s corny. I’m sick & bored!! :)). Thanks Colin! And thanks to all of you for reading!

More Progress For New Worship Space

It’s been a long week of construction. Every time I have an occasion to spend a week with a toolbelt on, I’m reminded of two things: First, I really enjoy building things; and second, I’m really out of shape. Back when I was doing construction full-time a few years ago, I felt fine after 10 hours on my feet. Now, not so much. Of course, my kids keep reminding me that I’m also getting old…

Anyway, I wanted to post some pictures to show you, loyal reader, what we’ve been up to. Monday, we made great progress on stage platforms. Tuesday we set out to design and build the drum booth. I normally don’t like to design projects at Home Depot, but that’s what we had to do. Part of the design requirement was to make it easy to disassemble and move. That led to a few challenges.

Ideally, a drum iso booth would be heavy and completely air sealed. A heavy, air sealed booth could not, however, be taken apart easily and moved. So we had to compromise. The final design is pretty good-sized; 6’x8′ inside. In fact, it’s so large, I’ve started calling it the drum condo. The two back sides (that won’t be seen by anyone) are skinned with 3/8″ plywood, fully glued to a 2×4 wall. The front two sides have 3’x6′ plexi windows. The rest of the walls were skinned in 1/4″ luan, then sided with 1×4 pine to mimic the wall treatment in the rest of the room. All of the wall cavities are filled with fiberglass insulation and covered with linen.

The roof is made up of an inner frame made from 1×4 and an additional outer frame, also of 1×4. The frames are skinned with 3/8″ plywood. The channel between the inner and outer frames slips over the walls and locks them together. We’ll put some 5/16″ foam gasket in that channel to further air seal the top plate/roof junction. We made the roof in two sections; those are joined by a elongated U shaped piece of 1×6 with gasket material on the underside. Next week, we’ll be putting 3″ Auralex wedgie foam on the inside of the roof to deaden it up.

The good news is that aside from the long front wall (which is seriously heavy), it’s all pretty easy for 2 people to move around. What I don’t know is how effective it will be. I suspect it will be a work in progress for a few weeks as we find better ways to seal it up and deaden the sound. I am pretty sure it will be better than just having the drums out in the open, however. If I had my druthers, I would have preferred to make it more permanent, heavy and better sealed. As it is, it will be an improvement. We’re also working on a design for a “skate;” a set of wheels on a U-shaped bracket that we can use to move the walls around easier.

We also built a tech booth yesterday. The original design called for a straight 10′ counter, but some quick work (to scale) in Illustrator indicated that our gear wouldn’t fit. So we changed it up and made it a 12′ ell. The extra length and the ell give us the ability to put the mixer (an 01V) in the corner, and still have space for some rack gear. The outside was also sided with 1×4 to blend in with the room. Kevin, Justin and Zach worked hard on that booth all day long and did a great job.

Next week,we start the fun stuff; hanging lights and speakers, wiring and starting to program. Here are some photos of our work to date.
