We’re still around! (And a giveaway…)

We haven’t been super active online in a few months. And I wanted to let you know why. First, we want to let you know that we’re still around! You can’t get away from us that easily! Second, there is a reason for the break. I (David) took a position at a church as a Lead Pastor as well as Worship. I started just after the latest post before this one.

Acts 2 to U2 – What is the Purpose of the Church and How Do We Get Back?

(Yes I realize U2 isn’t the chart-topping machine they used to be, but I like the alliteration and what not…) In episode 0124 of the podcast, we talked about the purpose of the church and how it affects our worship ministry. I wanted to follow up that episode in hopes to get some conversation going about how we should be doing church as opposed to how we are doing church. What is the Purpose of Church?

Encouraging Volunteers – The Power of a Thank You

Unlike any other organization in the world, the church is completely dependent on volunteers. Sure, a lot of churches have some paid staff members. There’s usually a full-time senior pastor, but not always. Then there is usually an administrative assistant. Then maybe some other full-time staff or part-time staff. But, no church is equipped with enough staff to do all the work of ministry with paid personnel. Every church, no...

The Basics of Using Compression

So far in this series, we have covered a couple of basics in running sound. We first covered setting your gain structure. Then we covered some basics on EQ. And of course, these all go back to episode 0123 of the podcast. Today we’re going to cover the highly useful, yet misunderstood topic of compression. It took me quite a while to get a good understanding of what compression is, what all the controls of compression do and how...
