Another Perspective On Lousy Audio & Related Issues In Church

ProSoundWeb: One statement he makes that I’m in general agreement with is this: “They [churches] haven’t yet realized they can’t invest in pro equipment without hiring a pro to run it.”

I’ve been saying this for quite a while now, and I’ve seen it happen at quite a few churches. They start off as a small church in a small room with simple, analog equipment that the volunteers figure out fairly well. As they grow, they build a new building and install a fancy new digital console and no one knows how to use it.

What the church needs is a technical director who can train the volunteers on the new gear and keep it running smoothly. Sadly, most churches discover this too late.
