Audio Breakouts

Placing Volunteers in the Audio Hot Seat

Description

We all know the one of the most challenging positions to train a volunteer for can be that of audio. If there is one technical position that also takes the brunt of the pressure of a service, it is definitely the audio engineer. So combining a pressure cooker with a volunteer sounds like a great ministry role right? In this session we will take a look at how to successfully set-up a volunteer to win! Topics in this breakout include, how to create a training plan for audio volunteers, console layouts and show templates for volunteers, virtual soundcheck training and introducing volunteers into events with success.

Audio Networking

Description

Audio networks are becoming more and more standard for large and small systems in all audio visual markets. With so many options and protocols available what products, tools, and approaches are available to meet the needs of the church? Exploring these ideas and systems will help us learn more and see how we can better serve the people and systems we work with on a weekly basis.

The Art of Mixing

Description

This breakout will go down to the foundation of a good mix. Your ears. We’ll look at ways to leverage the gear you already have to get the best mix possible. While having the right tools is important, a great mix starts with understanding the music and how to organize yourself to achieve the desired sound.

The Role of an Audio Director: How to Plan to Succeed and Fail

Description

It takes a lot of hard work to manage and maintain a smooth operating audio team and systems. From the largest to the smallest church audio needs to have preparation for any event. But, surprisingly nobody has ever thought to really discuss the “fail” part of running audio. Because things just happen! But as it happens and are we prepared as engineers to deal with that. This breakout session will cover a wide range of topics that any size church can apply including, setting up workflows for success, having thick skin, planning ahead so that you can wing it, and planning to fail, and better yet, how to recover from failure.
