This week we debate whether 96KHz is better than 48KHz, talk about the new SSL Live console and discuss some rules of thumb for using EQ (many of which we break consistently).
Wireless mic's—the source of great utility or frustration. We talk about how to make them work better, and about the upcoming spectrum sell-off that will once again have us shifting frequencies.
Ever wondered how to get your broadcast mix to sound like the big Mega Church's? Today we talk with three guys who really know what they're doing. Even if you don't have lots of gear, your audio for video mix can still sound great.
This week, it's all about projection! We talk about lumen ratings (and why you can't trust them), digital vs. analog cabling, lenses, throw distances and more. And as a bonus, we cover the NAMM show just for fun.
This week we talk about visual silence, multi screen environments, visual worship and a host of other topics related to immersive worship environments. Plus, some great new products in the news!
And check out Luke's new book, The Wide Guide.
This week we go back to the mailbag! We tackle questions such as how to handle it as a volunteer when the worship leader is also over tech but spends all his time with the band; how to balance excellence in production with budget, capabilities and people; prioritizing people over production and how to handle drums in a small room.
This week it's all about system design and optimization, building projects and churches that build buildings with no thought to AVL whatsoever. It's about to get real!
It's the last show of the year! We take a look back at the biggest stories and products of 2013, and make some predictions about what's to come in the new year. Plus, a special call in from our producer, Katie. You won't believe from where!
Being that it's Christmas week, we solicited fun Christmas stories from our listening audience. And boy did we get some! We even throw in a dramatic reading of one! And somehow, we end up talking about LED lights at the end. Go figure.
How do you prepare for a building project? Not simply design, but making sure all the right things are in place for a project to succeed. And be sure to choose equipment your team can run. We're gearing up for building in 2014!
The best way to learn this trade is from someone who has already mastered it. This week we talk about mentoring; being a mentor and having a mentor. We all need to be building into the next generation of technical artists.
This week it's all about lighting! We recap LDI—or as our panel calls it, LEDI. Learn about the new LED-source moving head fixtures, LED houselights, LED video walls and a new console from High End. And you'll never guess who our sponsors are...
Since Mike is on vacation, it's time for the "Best of Episodes 1-100!" In this show, we talk with many of our favorite people, Camron Ware, Ryan Howell, Stephen Proctor, Andrew Stone, Dave Stagl, Nigel Spatling and Bob Heil. This is a must-listen to episode.
Are "authentic" and "good" mutually exclusive? Is it possible to over-rehearse? Why do we think "good enough" is, well, good enough in church? We tackle these questions and more this week.
It's easy to fall into the same routine for our weekly services. But what if we approached them with more intentionality? How can we be stirred up by what we do? This week, we learn some lessons on that from the SALT conference.
Your musicians and vocalists prepare for a weekend, but how does the tech team? For that matter, how do you train your tech team? And how do you handle disasters, vacations or simply not being there? We cover it all this week!
We're live from SALT13! A large group of technical artists assembled in Stephen Proctor's living room, and we were there to record it. It's a great discussion on the tools of our craft, and a reminder that we all face similar challenges.
It's software picks week! Our esteemed panel talks about many cool, clever and time-saving software tools they can't live without. Fair warning; grab a notepad and write these down—lots of great ideas here!
We're live at the National Worship Leader's Conference! And as such, it's time for a deep discussion about worship, being encouraged, having a network and being cynical. Get your notebook out, you'll need it!
We're live from WFX this week! We talk about making it through tough times, getting on board with the vision of the church and how to solve morale problems (among other things). It's a great episode with lots of laughs and truth.
