I am glad you found the site for GH. There stuff has allways been around and I wonder why someone would say it can not be had?They are pretty genours with free downloads.
They are also a fun band to mix and PK has turned it down  a lot from where he used to be. It has not affected his sound though and if anything in my view is playing and singing better today than he was many years ago. I had a discussion with him on that and he says it is because of all the hot stuff he puts on his food. Who am I to dispute him on that.
Have a good day.

We offer as part of our service a training DVD that I think would go a long ways towards helping you.  It's designed for the church sound technician.

You can get more info on our site (see my signature) or order direct from one of our partners.  I'd suggest www.pinelakemusic.com or www.cientertainment.com

Check it out.  It would help.

Make friends with people running PA companies in your local area and go out and help them. The best way to learn is to do.

hi Wordman,

In May you said:

<<< after 4 months I still can't seem to make that church sound good. Don't get me wrong, I love doing this and the people there are so happy with the sound >>>

First, it does seem that you've got the right attitude to be a soundman - hard to satisfy. That can be a good thing. My first question concerns the people who are 'so happy' with your sound. What do they like about it? How specific are the compliments? Do the compliments all just happen to originate with sweet little old blue-haired ladies Smile ? Or did it sound so atrocious before you arrived that anything would have to be better? In other words, why don't you think the room sounds good?

Have you spent any time listening to the sound of the room without amplification? I was blessed to grow up in a church with a good sounding 800 seat auditorium. The sound system (RCA ribbon mic' and - I think - Western Electric triode tube amps) would be considered primitive today, but I can't recall ever being conscious of the fact that the sound system was even turned on while actually listening to it. No doubt, RCA ribbons and WE triodes helped, but it was the room and George the soundman (who had to climb more stairs than anybody else around - despite his profound cerebral palsy) that I think really made the difference.

You are showing wisdom in wanting to learn more about gear. Just expand your concept a little and think of the room itself as your biggest component. Maybe read some Harry Olson.

If you are really looking to learn...

Get ahold of Kent Morris @ Cornerston Media in Atlanta.

He teaches all of the tech courses offered by Integrity Music during their Seminars4worship.

He is a great teacher, and lives in the same town.

Hope it helps!
