CTA Classroom - Are You Suffering from ET?

Transitions list in FCPSome time ago, I was trying to watch a show on the DIY network the other day about sustainable building practices. Those close to me know that I’m really into building. It’s been a hobby out of control for a long time, really, so I was very interested in the content of the program. However, I had to stop watching because I became so annoyed with the editor’s attempt to use every single transition his editing package came with (and perhaps a few third party ones…). Even my wife was irritated by it, which says a lot. Some of the transitions were really cool and had they been used sparingly, would have been great. The problem was, the transitions got in the way of the message. After 10 minute of yelling, “STOP!” I had to turn it off.

Back in the old days of editing (the real old days of cutting film with a razor and taping it together), cuts were pretty much all an editor had to work with. Even dissolves took a lot of work. This was fine however, because editors developed a language of editing in which cuts ruled and dissolves marked the transition from one scene to another (or a change of time)

Today, now that editing has become very easy and hundreds of transitions are just a mouse click away, many editors find themselves afflicted with ET—Excessive Transitionitis. Thankfully, there is a cure...

CTA Classroom - The Soundcheck

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

by Mike Sessler, ChurchTechArts.org

Soundcheck time can be one of the most productive times of the weekend from an audio standpoint. It can also be one of the most frustrating. I have seen a soundcheck turn normally mild-mannered and reserved musicians and engineers into angry combatants. My brothers, this should not be. Soundcheck can be very efficient, productive and dare I say fun; but we have to do a little work first. Because there are so many different ways to do a soundcheck (and so many different church situations), I’m not going to prescribe one “perfect” way. What I want to do instead is offer a series of suggestions that hopefully apply to all situations, and you can create your own plan. Sound good? Here we go…

Heil RC Capsules Catching On

AddThis Social Bookmark Button


The Heil RC 35 and 22 wireless capsules have become a fantastic solution to improving existing screw-on wireless handheld transmitters. Country superstars Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood were among the first to jump in. Up and coming country star Easton Corbin just took delivery of an RC 35. Myles Kennedy, with Slash's band, just ordered two. Big Time Rush (those of you with kids will know the group) took four RC's on a promotional tour of Europe. Stone Temple Pilots, Paul Rodgers, Third Eye Blind and the Palm Springs Follies are all using RCs on their wireless rigs.

On a related note, the Line 6 XD V70 accepts both the RC35 and the RC 22 capsules. Hot rod your XD-V70 with an RC35 or RC22.  We have Line 6 XD-V70 handheld systems and Heil RC capsules in stock.  Order online or call today!
