Decatur, AL (June 7, 2016)—Epic Church in Decatur, Alabama recently purchased a DiGiCo S21 entry-level digital desk as part of a move to update its audio. Worship Pastor Justin Barnett led the effort, purchasing the console through Sutherland Sight & Sound of Sheffield, Alabama.
Sutherland Sight & Sound let him set the console up in the church’s 1,000-seat sanctuary before the purchase was made, to let church leaders and volunteers familiarize themselves with the desk.
“We knew we needed an upgrade,” Barnett recalls. “We needed more adaptability, flexibility, to let us use the console for front of house, for monitors, for streaming. We wanted a better-sounding console and were ready to take the next step.”
Multiband EQ and effects processing all being onboard and integrated into the work surface were of interest to the technical team there. “When he heard it, our lead pastor said, ‘That’s not leaving the building—we’re going to buy it!’” Barnett recalls. “Once they saw and heard the console, it pretty much sold itself.”
