The new diggs
Our new campus is nearing completion. Everyone is excited to get things open and see people have life changing experiences. This was my first opprotunity to see the place and its looking good. Its nice to be able to step in at this point and make changes now rather than getting in and realizing we should have done something else. Mostly, its small changes that needed some tweaking. The team from Clark Pro Media is pretty amazing. Wes mentioned that this was by far the easiet construction project he has ever done. There is a reason Clark is getting work from so many big churches around the country.
The line array in the main auditorium is the baby Meyer boxes. We will be using the Digidesign Venue for the FOH console. The plan is to use this new system to not only to meet the needs of the new campus but as a test application in order to upgrade our main campus auditorium with the same basic gear. We would probably move up to the MICA boxes but they are very similar given the different size of the auditoriums. I'm with Dave, this is the year of the system. I'm sure the Clark team will get us started in a good place but the new campus will require a good bit of time to get dialed in correctly. Its good for me and the team to work on these projects. It makes us all better.
