UMC Audio Week 9

Week 9 Total hours 12.5

CSAV finished installing the sound systems in both buildings this week.

John from CSAV returned Thursday morning to fix the monitor sends with a firmware update but this didn’t solve the problem of the monitor mixes being unaffected by the fader or mute button. There was a setting involving pre and post fader that affected the mix bus channel instead of the send channels. Both systems have the latest firmware now so they match.

At CUMC service this week, rhythm guitarist played the hymns today. NEUMC service the iPad wasn’t connected to the sound board after the firmware update. Fixed it after service by making the IP address on the iPad match the X32.

Triforce Week #9

Week #9. I worked 9.5 hours this week. We went back to St. Paul's in Etown and finished the installation of the sound absorption panels throughout the sanctuary of the church. We installed 18 panels in total.

The short cords of the projector and computer boxed me into my seat at the sound board.

At NEUMC the guitarist was plugged into the same DI box as the praise team and there is already a projector here so a XLR cable was run from the computer to the board using an adapter fropm 1/8” to XLR with a gain knob.

Week 3 UMC Audio

Week 3 10 hours

6/16 Praise team rehearsal at NEUMC started with technical problems for the bass-guitarist who returned from a trip this week. Monitor balance was not ideal. Turns out the monitors were set post-fader instead of pre-fader. There was no time to correct this for every input on both monitor channels. This will be first on the agenda next week.

6/18 Another day of taking inventory. Today was all XLR cables. Measuring, wrapping and labeling.

 6/20 Service at CUMC went well. Mic swap had no complications. At NEUMC the guitarists monitor was full of a crackling. Had time to determine it wasn’t the headphones being used so the headphone amp and cable will be investigating the next week in addition to rebalancing the monitors.

6/21 Take measurements and photos of the space at CUMC. Drawings with the measurements on them were made as well. I need to find my systems design notes and begin designing an AV system for the space.
