Church Sound: Taking Care Of Business
« on: August 24, 2018, 08:13:25 am »

Talking with sound technicians and worship leaders, I often hear the complaint that from week to week, the quality of Sunday morning varies. I’ve determined that some of this is from training, such as when there’s a problem and the tech doesn’t know how to fix it. Some of it’s skill; certain folks simply have a better ear and command of the equipment than others.

Good article.

A lot of common sense here but it’s amazing how much is missed.

For example: Our worship team planner does not communicate the rota to our sound team. I am in both and so have been give. Both rotas. This is something an am trying to change.

Also, we have the disadvantage of not having our own building so the maintenance parties which would be great and mean I can train tech guys/girls don’t happen.
