First UMC Internship Week 6

Week 6 (2/21 - 2/27/2022)

11 hours

On Friday, my internship mentor and I focused on tuning the new sound system to the room by placing a small diaphragm condenser microphone at ear level in the center of the room and using that microphone as a basis to adjust the eq of the main Left and Right speakers. This was done in order to obtain a flatter, more natural sound than what was being put out before. In addition to this, we also made space in the amplifier rack in preparation for installing a new wireless distribution unit for the wireless microphones, which the Church will be getting in the upcoming week. 

For both church services this Sunday, I was tasked with helping to monitor both audio and video for both services. I provided assistance with fixing feedback issues, helped to set up microphones for both services, helped to watch over the board and mix when asked, helped set up camera shots for both services, and helped to monitor the clarity of the audio coming from the output of the video system to the live-streaming computer.
