New York, NY (November 4, 2013)—Allen & Heath’s Korean distributor, Sama ProSound Co., recently installed a GLD-80 digital mixing console and ME-1 personal monitor mixer to the Gunpo Sungjang Church in Gunpo-Si as part of a recent expansion at the church.
As part of this expansion, the church wanted to upgrade its sound system to digital, and employed Sama ProSound to find a suitable digital mixing system. The company selected a GLD-80 digital mixer expanded with a AR2412 and two AR84 I/O racks, with personal monitoring provided by five of the compatible ME-1 mixers, making Gunpo Sungjang Church the first church to install ME-1 in Korea.
“I first saw ME-1 at KOBA 2013, and it really impressed me. ME-1 meets all of my expectations, as it is very easy to use—not just for the sound guys but for the musicians as well,” said Rev. Seunglee Kim, who manages sound at the church. “The previous stage sound environment used wedge speakers, but the current set up with ME-1 is much better. ME-1 is very impressive, allowing musicians to control their monitor mix without a monitor engineer, which helps keep the sound levels on stage lower. As ME-1 is compatible with GLD without any option cards, we could make the system very simple and easy to use. Supporting up to 40 signals is the best feature of ME-1 compared to competitive personal monitor mixers.”
