Gurus of Tech

I will be in Chicago at the Gurus of Tech conference on Tuesday, May 21, and Wednesday, May 22.  Gurus is one of the largest gatherings of church tech people in the country and it's being held at the Willow Creek Community Church in South Barrington, IL. 

Registeration is still open and it's as cheap as free.  $25 donation suggested.  The lineup of speakers is world-class, and I'll be there, too.  If you see me, stop me and say hello; it'll be great to see you there.

And if you need something while I'm gone, just call the office.  Gary Williams will be handling my calls, the guys will still be installing equipment, and the warehouse crew will be making sure that your orders get shipped on time.

PreSonus is now shipping Capture 2.0, a major upgrade to its ultra-easy-to-use audio-recording software for Mac and Windows. Designed specifically for live recording, Capture is bundled with all PreSonus StudioLive-series digital recording and performance mixers and is preconfigured for instant use. Version 2 further streamlines workflow - one of Capture's strengths - and adds significant new safety features to an already remarkably stable recording platform.

The first thing you'll notice when you launch Capture 2.0 is a new Start page that lets you instantly create new sessions and access previous sessions. Capture's overall design has been updated with a darker color scheme for improved visibility and legibility in difficult lighting conditions. A new Big Meter mode turns your computer monitor into a gigantic meter bridge that is clearly visible from a considerable distance.

Capture 2.0 includes several workflow enhancements.

Located in Hollywood, Catalina Bar & Grill has been a revered fixture on the West Coast jazz scene for over 25 years. Legendary performers like Dizzy Gillespie and Miles Davis have played there, a tradition that owner Catalina Popescu continues by booking today's top jazz artists. With a full kitchen, elegant dining room and perfect sight lines, every effort is made to honor the club's legacy of hosting incredible performances in an intimate space.

Recently, Catalina decided to upgrade its sound system with StageSource loudspeakers from Line 6. "When we heard how beautiful they sound, with such great clarity, we knew it would make a big difference to finally make the sound as good as the view for our customers," says Catalina Popescu.

The installation provides full coverage of the club's L-shaped audience area, with a total of six StageSource L3m and three L2t loudspeakers hung from the ceiling, augmented by six L3s subwoofers.

What others say

Hi Dave,
We were incredibly impressed by the work the guys did. The system sounds great and Gary was a great help to us getting our feet wet with the new board. I feel pretty comfortable on it and I think most of our guys do as well.
