The National System Contractors Association has chosen Fits & Starts Productions to conduct its first House of Worship workshops at its annual Expo.
The How-To Church Sound Workshops will be held at the Orlando Convention Center March 16–17, 2007, as part of the NSCA Expo (March 15–17, 2007). The How-To Church Sound Workshops offer church sound volunteers, media teams and musicians an opportunity to learn how to operate the sound systems in their churches while learning about microphone technique, stage levels, acoustics, mixing, equalization, signal processing and more.
The workshops are produced in association with NSCA by Fits & Starts managing partner Hector La Torre and led by instructor Mike Sokol. Two workshops are offered: "Microphone Techniques for Worship," March 16, 3–6 p.m., and "How-To Church Sound Workshop," March 17, 8 a.m.–5 p.m.. Attendees will be provided with lunch and an exclusive tour of the expo floor.
Attendees will receive hands-on training featuring equipment from the following manufacturers: Allen & Heath, Aviom, AKG, ATS, Crown, Fostex, FSR, Mackie, Pro Co Sound, Rane, Tannoy and Whirlwind.
