Harvest Church was established under the guidance of God’s Holy Spirit, with a small group of believers in 1976 in Charlotte, North Carolina. They have grown through the laying of the foundation, the building of the Worship facility, and now redesigning their stage and updating their Technology. Ronn Banks is the Technical Director for Harvest Church in Charlotte NC.
"We contracted with AE Global Media to bring us into the digital age of worship technology. We are also thankful for AEGM moving us towards the hub of our new system, the Midas M32 Digital Mix Console. After the installation of the system, we were finally ready to sail,” reports Banks.
The M32 being considered an "entry level" digital mixing console from the Midas brand is probably a misnomer. The onboard extras are complete with pro quality equalizers, effects, compressors, exciters, reverb units, etc. “We were a little slow at first on tweaking a few passages for mixing, but that will come with familiarity with the Midas M32 and it's workflow. The new sound was surprising, with a clarity that we haven't had before,” he reports.
“In addition,” tells Banks, “The M32 has allowed us to take better control of a few of our female singers who have a really large dynamic range and broad vocal range. We didn't have to ride their faders near as much as we did on our older analog mixer. Low subtle dynamic vocals are brought up and the power punch vocal passages are corralled into obedience.”
