  • Using Multitracks in Mainstage

    Something that has become very popular in churches is the use of backing tracks or also called “Enhancement” tracks.  Sites like Multitracks.com and LoopCommunity.com provide these multitracks.  Multitracks.com has a wide selection of multitracks and many come from the original studio masters.  A multitrack gives you individual tracks or also called “Stems” for each instrument in the song.  Don’t have a bass player one Sunday, no problem.  Add the bass track to your mix and you are good to go.[…]

  • Church Sound on a Budget

    Let me guess, you have just completed your ump-teenth Sunday with less than desired sound quality.

They both work at Gateway and are highly valued leaders in their fields. Natasha took some amazing photos of us for the[…]

  • Piano Tips

    I studied Classical piano for years and really wouldn’t be the player I am today if it had not been for that grueling period in my life. However, the most impacting experience was a 10 minute session with 57 year black organist in West Texas. My eyes were glued to his fingers and it is the formation of my playing style. I am going share my best tips that I have learned over the years in 10 minute lessons. I[…]
