So today I went to lunch with Jeff Dykhouse and Karl Verkade (our Music Director). Jeff is somewhat of a local legend. He’s a sound, acoustics, recording, A/V, guru. He’s helped setup a lot of our local churches and has a recording studio, and just is an all around nice guy. So I bought him a burrito and he shared his wisdom with Karl and I.
What we were discussing was the use and/or need for drum enclosures, lighting rigging, stage acoustics, podcasting, etc. It was a great informative time that I was recording for my podcast – I was stoked! We talked for about an hour and I got it all on computer – then my computer ran out of batteries. I thought, no worries, I’ll just come home, plug it in and finish it up.
Well I opened up Garage Band and lo and behold, the file says its over 400mb, but there is no audio track in the file. Oh well. I do want to pimp out Jeff’s site at worshimix.com – He’s a super guy who really enjoys helping churches and ministries get off on the right foot when it comes to sound and A/V. He helped me redesign our worship room to be a little better acoustically and aesthetically as well!
Thanks Jeff and Karl for a great day! I hope I can remember everything we discussed!
