  • Mixing Monitors for Stage and House

    Doug Gould / Worship MD

    PASTORAL 1

    It’s safe to say that the platform volume level has seriously degraded the front of house (Main Mix) in our churches and venues especially the small to mid sized venues. How do we mitigate the levels of sound coming from the stage so that the congregation and the musicians all hear what they need to at an appropriate level? Floor monitors, wedges, are also the leading cause of feedback and we will show you how to “Ring Out the Monitors” to reduce the possibility of that occurring. What advantages do personal monitors and personal monitor mixers have over floor monitors? We’ll teach you tips and techniques to make everybody on the stage and in the sanctuary happy.
