Soundcraft Studer holds open house sessions at Church at the Mall
WORLD: Harman’s Soundcraft Studer mobile truck is currently holding open house sessions at the 2,500-capacity First Baptist Church at the Mall in Florida until March 5th.
The Church at the Mall in Lakeland is equipped with a Studer Vista 5 M2 digital console. The sessions have been organised to provide hands-on training on how to use Soundcraft and Studer consoles in a house of worship environment, in addition to providing instructions on the particular requirements needed for house of worship mixing, and audio production for live sound and broadcast.
‘Mixing audio for a house of worship can be just as complex and demanding as mixing sound for a rock concert or theatre production,’ said Katy Templeman-Holmes of Soundcraft Studer. ‘Especially when you have to mix a full praise band, choir, preacher and others, deal with the acoustics of a large sanctuary or mega church and possibly also create separate mixes for a live broadcast, recording, foyer and other areas.
‘The Open House is an opportunity to learn from us and from some of our users, covering basic through to advanced theory,’ she explained. ‘It also provides hands-on tips and tricks on how to get the most out of Soundcraft and Studer consoles and the specific features that make them ideal for house of worship applications.’
Attendees have the opportunity to work with Soundcraft and Studer factory experts to receive demos and training on various consoles, from their general operation and signal flow to the consoles’ unique features. Jason Bethune of Harman Professional’s regional rep firm Dobbs Stanford will be on hand to answer any questions.
