Most volunteers on church sound teams are experts in all kinds of things-except audio. You don't have time to take an engineering class, and yet if you feel a calling to serve your church you need to learn how to do the best you can. Mixing for God is designed by an experienced audio engineer and college professor to help you understand what's going on. You'll start by analyzing what went wrong during a disastrous Sunday morning scenario, then we walk you through setting up for a service. Next comes refining your mic technique, using signal processing, and actually hearing whether the guitar is too loud (it always is!). We'll discuss causes and solutions for lots of typical problems we all deal with, then dig a bit deeper into the concepts and theory behind all of this. As a college professor for over 25 years, the author knows how to design materials to help you learn the how-to and the why without getting lost in technical jargon. Features: - Practical advice for setting up on stage and using microphones - Console operation, mixing concepts, and using signal processors - Why your sanctuary sounds awful (and what to do about it) - How to (legally) record your services - Diagrams to visually explain concepts and signal flow - Lots of audio examples so you can actually hear what we're talking about - Explanations and answers to the problems and issues you run into every week With a hands-on, practical approach, lots of explanatory diagrams, and tons of audio examples, this book can give you a much clearer understanding of how to set up and mix better each week.
