Chris Huff will present "10 Things You Can Do Right Now To Improve Your Church Sound."
Since 2006, Chris’s website, “Behind The Mixer” has been helping church audio techs learn the craft via articles and how-to guides Chris’s team success is attributed to the fact they know your success comes from learning more than the technical aspects of production. To be a good audio tech, one must understand all facets of live audio production, and this site covers them all.
Chris started mixing in 1991 on a state-of-the-art Mackie SR24:4 – an ancient mixer by today’s standards. he began, the way most audio techs get started, when a church staff member said to him, “You look like you could learn this.” He was up for the challenge.
Fast-forward to 2006. He was at a different church and mixing a full band most weekends while trying to teach the tech team everything he had learned over the previous 15 years. But he wanted to help more people. He wanted to help every single tech in the world who would start much the same way he did...and https://www.behindthemixer.com/ was born.
It’s been over ten years since its inception and he says it’s been an amazing time. He has worked at churches and venues of various sizes but even better is how church techs have been helped:
- Techs in countries he never knew existed (Swaziland? Yes, it’s a real place) have learned how to mix audio.
- Seasoned techs, as well as new techs, who felt like they were all alone, are now part of the Behind the Mixer online community and are sharing with other techs every day.
- And techs are getting help with gear purchase questions, personality conflicts with musicians, and in short, every area that's part of working as a church audio engineer.
Today, he is an audio engineer at Greenwood Christian Church in Greenwood, Indiana and mixing on a state-of-the-art digital Yamaha CL5. Who knows how that will compare to mixers in another twenty years?
And in case you think his name sounds familiar, he also writes for pro audio publications which include Live Sound International, ProSoundWeb, and Church Production Magazine.
This presentation is open to anyone that seeks to improve their mixing skills along with getting a better understanding of audio and how it affects everything we do!
