  • 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. Little old ladies covered their ears as they ran screaming from the building and looks of seething rage were directed at a frustrated sound engineer. The bass player looked down to notice a bright blue light glowing from the inside of his moniter. He gives a worried look to the worship leader and says, “uh, is this a problem?”

  • Royal Free Music

  • Photos By Natasha Brown

    Beth and I recently spent some time with Aaron and Natasha Brown. We had a photo shoot and them hung out at a Tapas Bar. Yes I said “Tapas.”. Get your mind out of the gutter:-). Anyway they are a fantastic couple. Aaron is a tremendous guitar player and producer and she is an accomplished pianist and photographer. 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[…]

Embracing the Green House

Posted by beth.collins On August - 27 - 2010 3 Comments

I have found myself asking this question lately; what exactly happens in a green house?  I had never thought about it before until God spoke to me recently about this season of my life and how He was placing me in the green house.  To be honest, at first I was sad and a little disheartened because, once again, I felt like God was putting me on the bench!  Had God completely forgotten the dreams that He had given me?[…]

 

Recording Update!

Posted by clay.collins On August - 23 - 2010 0 Comment

Last weekend Chad Whiteley (drums) and Darrell Wren (bass) laid down their respective instruments at Harbor House studios in Roanoke TX.  I knew I was going to be thrilled with their performances but they were truly inspiring.  When I went into the studio with them, I came with basic layouts and asked them to take complete freedom and add a piece of themselves to each song.  I am so glad I did.  The experience was truly rewarding for me and[…]

 

Drivers and Putters

Posted by clay.collins On July - 28 - 2010 0 Comment

The other day I was thinking about my 14 year old step son Grant. He is a great kid who is very detail oriented. He is a real problem solver and loves to help people. It’s amazing to me how much I identified with him from the first time I met him. He can sometimes have a hard time starting projects, but once he’s rolling there is no stopping him and he is a strong finisher. One day I was[…]

This year I am in the process of producing a, uh, well I don’t even know what to call it these days. A few years ago it was referred to as a “record,” then it was a “CD”. But now everything is primarily distributed in mp3’s or whatever. Share This Page
