Buffalo Center, IA (November 25, 2015)—Jeremy Rollefson has toured the world, working as a live sound engineer, monitor engineer and production manager for acts like Toby Keith, Miranda Lambert, Newsboys and Switchfoot. But while he’s used to working behind massive FOH consoles, when he recently consulted on a new audio system for the First Reformed Church in Buffalo Center, IA, he opted for something that fit better with its surroundings, choosing an Allen & Heath Qu-24 console for the church’s soundbooth, and a ME-U Monitor Hub and a Ar-2412, which were placed behind stage right in a custom stage rack.
“The Qu consoles have massive processing capabilities. The workflow is extremely recognizable for those who are used to an analog mixer, so it makes training church volunteers easy,” said Rollefson. The mixer’s integrated USB recorder can playback multi-track files, so Rollefson uses it to explain basic mixing techniques and workflow.
“I have found that the ME system is very simple in its operation and is adaptable for use on stage or in the house of worship,” he said. “With this set up for monitoring, the artist has the ability to take control over his own mix without it being the FOH engineer’s responsibility to route individual mix buses from the sound console.”
