Church Sound: Who’s In Charge Of Sound Check?
Who knows better what to start with first and when to move on to the next channel?
By Mike Sessler • Posted in Reading Room on August 15, 2018

Who’s in charge of a sound check? While the answer could be, “it depends,” I would say 97.6 percent of the time in church settings, the house mix engineer should be in charge. (I’ll deal with the other 2.4 percent in a minute.)

The main sound person should be in charge of sound check because he (or she) is the reason there is a sound check in the first place. The band needs to play, vocalists need to sing, videos need to roll—all so the engineer can properly set gain and levels, and sometimes monitors.

Given that reality, who knows better what to start with first, and when to move on to the next channel than the engineer? The worship leader might know when they have enough in their monitor, but they really don’t know when the gain, EQ, compression, gating and anything else is set properly. So relax and keep on strumming.
