We recap the highlights of the NAMM show this week. Hear about new wireless IEMs from Shure, a new mixer from A&H, updates to the Live Mix system, and new speakers from EV. All this and more!
We know that in order to get a great mix, we need good source material. But how does the sound engineer help the band get the best results? This week, it's all about practical steps we can take to make each weekend the best it can be.
We're back with our graphics experts again this week! This time, we talk about creation tools, compression, video codecs and source material. How to you get ProPresenter to play back video smoothly? We tackle that, too!
This week we dig into graphics! It's all about backgrounds, motion and static. Where to find them, how to curate them, where do you find inspiration and more. Great for anyone responsible for graphical content on weekends.
We're back with Landon from Audinate talking about the best practices for setting up a Dante Network. We tackle switched vs. Redundant, running Dante over your existing IT network and what cable should you use.
This week we uncover the mystery of Dante networking. We talk about the protocol itself, how it works, how it differs from other protocols and about the new Dante Via.
We pick up where we left off last week by talking about the building blocks for the modern worship sound, and with some excellent advice on how to structure rehearsals. Ultimately, it's all about relationships; in this case between tech and band.
As a tech guy, do you ever wish for "better source material?" Do you wonder how to help the musicians better understand what we need? If so, this is a show for you. Share with your worship leader, too!
We're all about LDI (or as we call it LEDI) this week. We talk about the cool new products we saw at the show. But don't despair if you're not a lighting guy—they weren't all lighting products!
We're back to audio! We set out to talk about mixing in mono, but end up with a great discussion on how stereo works as well as the importance of arrangements.
We head to the mailbag today and talk about being on staff at a church. What are some things to look for before taking the plunge, how to be successful and how to find a gig. Plus, Not the News!
Live from SALT 14! Where does art come from? Usually from pain. We unpack that thought and start a discussion about how our worship services may change.
One of the most common questions we get at CTA is how to build volunteer teams. We dig deep into that topic tonight with a guy who is really doing a great job with it. Get out the pencil and paper, you're going to want to take notes...
This week we chat about WFX, the Tech Leader's Retreat and the need for tech leaders to have a support network.
A lot of times we talk about new gear, new procedures and all kinds of more. But what about the churches with little or no budget? How do you still do production on a shoestring and do it well. That's our topic this week.
It's been a while, but we're back! This week get talk about console layouts, delve into the floor pockets vs. sub snakes debate and learn how to maximize digital consoles. Plus, a bombshell in Not The News!
I'm off on an install in the beautiful state of NY all week so we're not doing a show. Next week, I'll still be in the air during taping, but Van will be hosting the show for me, so make sure to tune in for that. It may be a day late getting posted while we get the files transferred and all, but there will be a show! Have a great week!
We dive into visual worship this week with a great discussion on finding inspiration, developing visuals, working out a visual style and a special sneak preview of what's coming up with SALT 2014!
Here's a link to the "Rave" Proctor was talking about during the show...
This week we're joined by one of my heroes of the church tech world. We talk about what it means to be have a heart for ministry in the technical arts, how to manage your time and how churches should lead their technical artists.
This week it's all about lighting! We talk about front lighting theory, using lights as scenic elements, and how to light backgrounds. And, how to be who you are as a church.
