CTA Classroom - The Soundcheck
by Mike Sessler, ChurchTechArts.org
Soundcheck time can be one of the most productive times of the weekend from an audio standpoint. It can also be one of the most frustrating. I have seen a soundcheck turn normally mild-mannered and reserved musicians and engineers into angry combatants. My brothers, this should not be. Soundcheck can be very efficient, productive and dare I say fun; but we have to do a little work first. Because there are so many different ways to do a soundcheck (and so many different church situations), I’m not going to prescribe one “perfect” way. What I want to do instead is offer a series of suggestions that hopefully apply to all situations, and you can create your own plan. Sound good? Here we go…
Heil RC Capsules Catching On
The Heil RC 35 and 22 wireless capsules have become a fantastic solution to improving existing screw-on wireless handheld transmitters. Country superstars Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood were among the first to jump in. Up and coming country star Easton Corbin just took delivery of an RC 35. Myles Kennedy, with Slash's band, just ordered two. Big Time Rush (those of you with kids will know the group) took four RC's on a promotional tour of Europe. Stone Temple Pilots, Paul Rodgers, Third Eye Blind and the Palm Springs Follies are all using RCs on their wireless rigs.
On a related note, the Line 6 XD V70 accepts both the RC35 and the RC 22 capsules. Hot rod your XD-V70 with an RC35 or RC22. We have Line 6 XD-V70 handheld systems and Heil RC capsules in stock. Order online or call today!

What others say
WOW!!! I installed the projector last night and can't believe how bad the old one was! I can't wait to see the congregation's faces on Sunday morning during the missions video! This baby is bright and clear. Very nice!
Showed the projector to the pastor last night and he said "Hmm..now you'll have people complaining it's too bright!" He marveled at the color correctness and contrast and his wheels started turning as to new ways we can minister with it.
