Sound System

Well, we are continuing to work toward getting everything together, and there is so much to do! However, God continues to supply, so we are pressing onward. One of the things that we have to do is determine what type of sound system to bring along. We really have three choices:
  1. We can simply use the sound systems that are already present
  2. We can get a traditional sound-reinforcement system (PA)
  3. We can get a self-contained compact system
There are pros and cons for each option. The first case is certainly the cheapest. However, it is not uncommon for churches to have the wrong types of microphones for cello, and many aren't really equipped to handle acoustic guitar either. Because of the nature of our music, it is also important to be able to obtain the right sound (clean acoustic), and most systems are not designed to make this a simple proposition. Even where it is possible, it is time-consuming to accomplish, and on top of this, it becomes problematic to leave the balance of the musical elements to a sound engineer that hasn't worked with us before.

The second option is definitely better, but it requires speakers, stands, amplifier, mixer, and other miscellaneous equipment (on top of the base system in the link). With our instruments alone, we already have quite a few items to carry and manage. On top of this, these systems do not automatically sound as good as built in systems that are tuned for the building. In order to get a portable system to work properly, it takes a surprising amount of time, trouble, and additional equipment (and expense).

The third option is the easiest and most compact option, but there is only one company making anything like them. As a result they are slightly more expensive than the second option. However, they are considerably easier to set up (10 minutes as opposed to hours), and they sound far better for acoustic music like ours. This is the option that we are praying God will supply. If you are interested in knowing more about this system, you can read about it here.
