Hi Duke
You have amazing ideas. Do you mind if I translate some (like portions of your blog) to Brazilian Portuguese and share with the Brazilian Churches?

What is striking equipment I can not find a definition of what it is or what they are or do I know that I should know. Please Help Thanks

Hey James,

“Strike” is a theatrical term. I’ll let Wikipedia give the definition:
Strike: to remove a set piece or from the stage (“Strike that chair.”) To “strike the show” is to disassemble the entirety of the set, return all equipment to storage and leave the venue as it was before the show was set up. May be used as a noun to refer to the event at which the show is struck.

Good question! Sometimes I forget that I’ve been doing this long enough that all of the industry code language isn’t commonly known. In fact, if you want to increase your knowledge of “professional” stage terms, Wikipedia’s page is pretty solid.

I am using a Mackey 32 channel board an older one, using CDs to record and I am wanting to use a computer to record we have mac computers and use garage band to edit what would you suggest there are only xlr and 1/4 in no USB or FireWire plugs thanks for your time. James

If you’re just trying to record a stereo feed out of your soundboard, I would use something like a M-Audio Fast Track Pro USB Pre-Amp to run audio from the console outputs into the Pre-Amp and into Garage Band. If you’re trying to record every channel individually, that will get a lot more complicated. If you’re sound board has direct outputs for every channel, it may be doable (though clunky). Does that help? Let me know if you have more questions.

Hey Duke,
Not sure if it’s something on my end, but the Audio 101: Fundamentals PPT does not seem to be complete. It has only 4 pages and no content.

Thanks for the heads up! It’s not just on your end, but on mine too. The catch is the file on my local hard drive is the same way. I’ll have to see if I can find the right file in my archives. Sorry for the inconvenience!
