Olive Baptist Church has been serving the Pensacola, FL area for 126 years, growing from an original group of 12 people to a thriving worship community with an average attendance of over 3,300. With a goal of leading people to encounter the greatness and presence of the Creator, the worship experience at Olive Baptist is designed to leave people wanting more and moving them into a deeper relationship with God.

Long a standard of the industry for IFB (Interruptable Foldback) systems for broadcast studios, live events, film sets and anywhere a foldback unit is needed, the Lectrosonics IFB T4 base station and R1a receiver are nearing the 20-year mark – almost unheard of for professional electronics in today’s world. Introduced in 2001, the R1a receiver pack set new standards for size, ruggedness, utility, and value. However, especially in today’s fast-paced production environment, the need has been rising for a new receiver pack with a new form factor.

Newhope Church in Durham, North Carolina Streams Its Live Services Using Waves eMotion LV1 Live Mixer

In Audio, Audio Install News, home_page, Install News, Web Articlesby Media

Dave Bookhout, Director of Creative Arts & Worship of Newhope Church in Durham, North Carolina, uses the Waves eMotion LV1 Live Mixer and Waves plugins to stream the church’s services. Streaming has grown increasingly important during the current health crisis, Bookhout says: “We’ve been broadcasting our services from our six campuses (Durham, Garner, Hillsborough, Wake Forest, Sanford, Kenya, and iCampus) for a while now; but since COVID, it’s become the most important thing we do on a weekly basis. Sometimes we broadcast live using the eMotion LV1, and at other times we pre-record and then mix and master the broadcast using Logic, with all the same Waves plugins that we use on the LV1. Week in and week out, we use the Waves eMotion LV1 live mixer in our broadcast suite.”

“We are running four Dell TouchScreen monitors in our setup,” Bookhout says about the church’s system; “Our DiGiGrid MGO optical MADI interface transports 128 channels between two MADI cards in our Midas Neutron and the Waves SoundGrid® network. We have a Waves SoundGrid Extreme Server to handle the plugin processing — we have almost every Waves plugin in our arsenal, and we are using many of them at any given time, so a powerful server is crucial. We also have a DiGiGrid IOC audio interface in our broadcast suite functioning as the LV1’s local I/O to transport audio to our studio monitors. We run 48 channels of the Waves SuperRack at front-of-house, using a Midas Pro X console, all I/Os being shared with the broadcast suite. So, we have 128 channels going on/off the Waves SoundGrid network, and the broadcast suite uses 72 channels while FOH has access to 48. We also utilize the SoundGrid Driver with a DAW for virtual sound check at both FOH and for broadcast, to get everything dialed in between our rehearsals and Sunday morning. That’s invaluable for us.”
