Many traditional Houses of Worship benefit from advancements in audio DSP (Digital Signal Processing) that allow microphones to be automatically controlled. This could be through automatic mixing, gating (turning the mic on and off), or feedback control. While this technology is amazing and brings a lot of benefits many churches also require more in-depth controls for the “superuser” or for larger services. QSC’s Q-Sys system can bring it all together through their touch panels, iPad, or PC applications. A Q-Sys DSP system can be programmed to provide automatic functionality for daily services. Advanced pages can then provide full controls as would be found on a traditional soundboard providing the best of both worlds.
