Hello everyone. I joined in the middle of the server migration. Great timing on my part. A bit about myself: I am trained and employed as a Microsoft laden computer technician. I have heavy tendancies towards Linux and the open source movement for many reasons. I also respect the Mac, but do not know it as well as I would like. I volunteer as head audio technician at my church. We have an average weekend attendance of 150 in a room that holds 110 (3 services). The sanctuary was built in 1891, long before electronic audio reenforcement was concerned. Heck, electricity itself was an afterthought. It has nice reverb and earthy tones from the heavy use of wood and plaster, but with space constraints and electrical circut problems. My church setup is a Carvin 24 chan concert series (never mic drums) above a Yamaha 8 chan 200wX3 powered mixer (previous setup). I also have a Behringer 8024 digital/programmable EQ, CGM main (15"+1' horn) speakers, and heavy tendancies towards Sennheiser wired and wireless microphones. I also have a 2.4ghz PC that I use for background music and recording. Size of my audio components is often one of my primary concerns because my entire booth is actually a landing for the stairs heading up to the storage balcony. I keep everything within a 17"x41" footprint. Its a fun challenge sometimes. My chair has been modded for use on the stairs just so I have more leg room. I also do a little bit of firefighting, a few college classes, and continue finding new ways to be a geek with my setup at home. I look forward to picking brains on what brands and features others use in their setups, especially space constrained church setups. I will be posting an interesting ordeal in a second in another forum dealing with computers, amplifers, and tight spaces. Anyone out there use the Opera web browser? www.opera.com I have difficulty signing in with it. I will pm dvsDave at some point.
