“The project had a lot of design challenges that added time to the build calendar.” shares Jeff Geisler of EMI Audio, the AV design/build contractor for the project.

At the center of the upgrade is an Allen & Heath GLD-80 mixing console, along with its MMO card providing a variety of formats of multi-channel digital output, an AR2412 Mix Rack, and 2 GLD AR84 expanders. The church’s audio system also includes Bose Control Space ESP signal processing, Bose PM-8500 Amplifiers, Bose LT 9403, LT-9400, 402 Speakers, Shure ULXD wireless Microphones, My Mix Monitor System and DPA Instrument Mics.

“For being relatively worried about going digital, my fears were gone quickly with the GLD 80.” Braaten said. “Our Church has a lot of different types of services; the Allen & Heath GLD-80, with its large LCD panel for scene recalls make our different set ups easy to do, and easy for the volunteer to learn. What is intriguing to me about the GLD-80 is that our pastoral staff wants to learn the board as well as the volunteers!”
