The Mosaic Church Upgrades With Allen & Heath GLD-80 Mixer

Now in its tenth year, the Mosaic Church in Rockland, California, recently completed a renovation of its sanctuary, which included upgrading the existing sound system with an Allen & Heath GLD-80 mixer and an AR2412 remote audio rack.
Situated in a strip mall amongst RV and Auto Dealerships along with a Fitness Centre, the Church presented a challenging acoustic environment.
Also added to the existing system is a pair of Tannoy V-12 speakers to complement three V-12's already in use. The church installed a Mi-Pro Microphone set up with a DPA headset for the pastor. Handling DSP chores for the new system is a RANE HAL2 processor.
With four to five Ministries using the Allen & Heath board during the course of a week, a digital mixer was the obvious selection.
"The Allen & Heath GLD-80 has a clear and simple interface that has a lot of flexibility for so many hands touching the board all week. During our two Sunday services, the GLD-80's PEQ page gives me an instant read on our Pastor's vocals and our five-piece band's audio level in a very live room," commented Matt Trask, Mosaic's Creative Communications Director. "This along with the reliable and very rich compression of the GLD-80 allows me to focus on the experience of the service, not just technical aspects."
"The function and price point of the console, along with the sound quality set the GLD-80 apart," said Mark Thompson of Clarity AVL. "I expected more trouble from the Mosaic room than I got – there is a musicality to the mixer that allows the audio sources to be more accurate. You don't find this in very many digital mixers."
