Excellence, Broadcast Audio and a Low Budget
“I want this done with excellence!”
Such a simple statement. It seems so easy. It’s heard a lot in the church technical world. It’s what we want to attain. But, many people misunderstand this statement because of the word “excellence”.
They use this word as a quality definition for how good or superior your mix should be. Many people attribute your mix quality to how much money you spend on gear. This is especially true in the broadcast audio world.
But the word “excellence” is much more than what you do or what type of gear you bought. Excellence is how you handle your craft. More specifically, the manner in how you do it. Excellence revolves not around having the best gear, but around your attitude. It’s doing your best with what you have while putting in place systems that help reduce and resolve past mistakes.
Before you can even approach the broadcast audio mix, as a leader, you need to understand how to achieve excellence. Here are a few key actions to help you achieve excellence.
