Maximising Monitoring at FCB Church | WorshipAVL
“Sometimes it’s what the congregation doesn’t hear that counts – a monitoring system upgrade and a new console are enhancing worship at Freie Christengemeinde Bremen.” – Frank Wells reports…
The March/April 2017 issue of WorshipAVL covers a story about German Church “Freie Christengemeinde Bremen” in an interview with Front of House engineer Dirk Meier. Read on their recent AV update and their benefits in using KLANG:fabrik and KLANG:vier as their in-ear monitoring system.
‘I heard and read about the Klang system long before we considered buying it,’ recalls Mr Meier. ‘Musician- mixed in-ear monitoring is important to us. We need a silent stage because the rear of our stage and the roof cause a lot of reflection when using wedge loudspeakers for monitoring. We are always looking for solutions to minimise stage noise for a better control of our FOH mix.’
The band members benefit from better mixes, he says, while ‘the silent stage allows us to have services with different volume levels without affecting the feel of what the musicians hear. At the same time, the Klang system is helpful in keeping our audio operators focused on the audience mix.’
Several advantages of the Klang system stood out immediately, for Mr Meier.
