    QSC Proves Perfect Fit for Automated Modern Multi-Band Rehearsal Spaces at Taylor Sound

    Saint Louis Park, MN (November 17, 2020) — [Fr, De, Es] — Taylor Sound is a full-service studio serving musicians in the Minneapolis–Saint Paul metropolitan area. Located just west of Minneapolis, the complex features rehearsal rooms, on-site recording, and even music video production in a massive, green-screen-equipped room. Facilities manager T. Perry Bowers wanted to increase access for local bands and artists who lacked the budget to lock out a rehearsal space of their own, so he created the Band Share program, in which bands pay for one or two nights per week in a room equipped with a drum kit, backline, and P.A. For the latter, he chose QSC TouchMix-8 and TouchMix-16 touchscreen digital mixers as well as the full range of QSC K.2 Series active loudspeakers. “All three of our Band Share rooms are bookable online, and you can get an access code and come in without…

    A Generous Donor Helps The Shepherd’s House Church Achieve a Major Sonic Upgrade with QSC

    Fort Worth, TX (October 8, 2020) — [De, Fr, Es] — Robert Wirtz hails from a 30-year career as a recording engineer, a role he still plays at Fort Worth’s Legendary Sound Studio and as proprietor of Ardub Music. Whenever he can, he puts his passion for perfect sound into the service of houses of worship. In nearby Lewisville, the Shepherd’s House Church was struggling with the patchwork P.A. system when, in July, thanks to a last-minute, anonymous donor, the church was able to commission Rob to design the optimal system for their sanctuary. After extensive computer analysis of the room, Wirtz recommended a QSC KLA Series line array consisting of a total of eight KLA12 active line array cabinets and four KS118 active subwoofers — an install twice as large as their original plans. “For every system I install, my philosophy is that I want it to sound as good as the nicest…
