Finding Your Next Audio Mixing Console: Keep Your Budget In Mind

Console brands worth investigating include DiGiCo, Yamaha, Studer, Behringer, Soundcraft, Mackie and Allen & Heath.

When on the lookout for your church investing in an audio mixing console, one cannot ignore one’s budget, but one also has to decide on: Analog or digital?

While that question may seem to have been answered years ago, with the push to go digital for such consoles, for some smaller churches, it still might be worth it to go analog. Once you account for how involved your services are and how many volunteers or staff members would work with the console, each plays a role in making that decision.


Read this 6-page PDF to review some of the features and benefits when deciding on the right audio console manufacturer, whether you look to a DiGiCo or Studer or Yamaha, or another manufacturer that you are considering for your church.

Among the features to keep an eye out for include compression, EQ or direct outputs. Also be sure to have training included as part of the package, once you have decided on a console.
