Cubase and Wavelab featured in church audio workshop tour 09/12/04Recognizing the increasing use of technology in the church, Steinberg has teamed up with Fits & Starts Productions, LLC, a producer of audio workshops in the USA, for a series of HOW-To Church Sound Workshops. The workshops are running during January 2005 and are dedicated to training church sound volunteers in live sound techniques and technology, offering hands-on training and exposure to the latest audio technologies.
Featuring audio engineer-author Mike Sokol, and produced by industry stalwart Hector La Torre, the workshops offer two days of audio instruction a Basic 3-hour workshop on Friday evening from 6 PM - 9 PM and an Intermediate workshop Saturday from 9 AM - 6 PM, obviously that leaves Sunday for churchy things.
Cubase System 4 is being used as a means of recording a service‚s music and sermons and WaveLab for editing and mastering to MP3 for posting on the web and CD/DVD
for distribution. This streamlined computer-based work-flow replaces common tape based systems and makes church service audio content more accessible to the community and easier to archive.
"We are extremely happy for the support companies such as Steinberg are providing for our tours. It shows that they are actively supporting audio education, and we are pleased to be using quality Steinberg products on tour," states La Torre, who has recently begun the Church Sound Workshops as an extension to his highly successful and on-going Surround Sound Workshops.
Interested sound volunteers, music ministers and others may register at their local sites. More information can be found at
