There are few, if any, moments in history more significant than the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. It is the very essence on which our faith in God and salvation is based. When I was first approached about doing a review of the Sibelius composing software, while composing an original piece for Easter, I was excited.

AGI Installs NEXO and Yamaha for Lawton First Assembly

In Audio, home_page, Install News by Chris Hardin

Lawton First Assembly located in Lawton, Oklahoma has a 10-year history with AGI Professional of Eugene, Oregon. “We needed an AVL company that would understand what our needs were,” states Senior Pastor Don Barnes. “Our church was so outdated, we even had the original red carpet. We were in need of a facelift and without a large budget, AGI always looks ahead so we don’t spend money on products that would soon be obsolete. Greg Slape (AGI owner) knows the church as well as he knows the technology.” The company was again chosen to specify and install complete audio, video, and lighting systems first in the youth auditorium followed by the sanctuary.

The youth auditorium consists of stereo left/right NEXO GEO S1210 arrays, five per side, a NEXO GEO S1230 per side, four PS8 speakers for front fills, four PS10s used as monitor wedges, and two RS18 subwoofers. The center speech array consists of eight NEXO GEO S8s, a Yamaha M7CL-48 Digital Audio Console, and Panasonic video projection.

With Fewer Boxes, Danley Sound Labs Revitalizes First Baptist Church of Ashland, Virginia

In Audio, home_page, Install News, Uncategorized by Chris Hardin

Ashland Baptist Church was organized by fifteen members on August 20, 1858. That first meeting was held in the Union Meeting House, currently the Masonic Hall on England Street, and served as the worship center until the dedication of the new church on Railroad Avenue. That “new” church building also served as a hospital during the Civil War. In 1967, the congregation moved to its present location. Since that time, several wings were added including a new sanctuary and fellowship hall to accommodate their growing congregation. When church leaders determined that a new sound reinforcement system was needed to improve intelligibility and musical impact, they also knew that it could not come at the expense of First Baptist’s sanctuary aesthetics. Audio/video integration firm RTW Media designed and installed a Danley Sound Labs system that satisfied both the sonic and visual objectives by minimizing the number of speakers that were required to provide precise, intelligible coverage.

Sennheiser launches evolution wireless D1 – easy digital wireless for ambitious bands

In Product News by tfwm

ew D1 Instrument SetAt NAMM, Sennheiser has launched evolution wireless D1, a range of digital wireless microphone systems that lets bands go wireless the easy way.

Ease of use is key

Bands can now just forget about frequency setting, matching transmitters and receivers, and getting the gain right – evolution wireless D1 offers true ease of use by doing all these time-consuming and sometimes error-prone chores for them. “Basically, all that is needed is to switch the system on”, said Martin Fischer. “The rest will happen automatically. In no time at all, you’re all set to start jamming – with all the levels right, and a stable wireless link.”
