LIGHTING: Control console: NSI MC-7024 24-channel, two-scene preset with DMX protocol output to 1.2 kW capacity dimmers. Instruments: ETC Source Four Ellipsoidals (18), Pars (8), and Parnells (4). There are three overhead bars to hang lights from: above stage, middle of room, and back of room, and there is one vertical bar on each side of the stage at mid-room for side lights. There is an enclosed lighting/projection booth at the rear of the room. There is also a one-person lift to access the lights.
SOUND: Speakers: 6 KV2 EX10 speakers on movable stands + EX 2.2 subwoofer. Mixers: Allen & Heath WZ3 14:4:2 house mixer and Mackie 1202 VLZ stage mixer. Microphones: two Electrovoice ND767a dynamic supercardioid vocal mics; two AKG D3800M dynamic cardioid vocal mics; two Shure SM 57 cardioid instrument mics, and two matched pairs of Rode NT5 small diaphragm cardioid-condensor instrument mics, + six boom stands, two DI boxes, two CD players, cables, snake, etc.
Please note that we do NOT presently have any outboard signal processing or effects devices – no reverb, delay, compressor/limiter, EQ, etc. If you need such equipment, you must bring your own.
The sound system is not permanently installed, but must be set up from scratch and taken down for each show. This adds some inconvenience up front, but allows for much more flexibility in how it is used.
All renters wishing to use the Chapel sound system are required to hire one of our designated sound technicians to set up, operate, and tear down the equipment. Even if you have your own tech person to run sound during your show, you will still need to hire our in-house person to set it up and tear it down. While this does add some extra expense to your show, it saves you the risk and potential expense of having to replace or repair expensive equipment that is broken by someone involved in your production. If this is a problem for you, you may bring in your own equipment.
RECORDING: Sound engineer/genius Robb Kunz offers Chapel users a special deal on live concert recording. He'll record your show
(with really good mics), mix it, submit a test mix, bounce back,
finalize, and master it for the insanely reasonable price of $350. If
interested, contact him and tell him you are doing a Chapel show.
PIANO: ca. 1920 Knabe 9' concert grand. If you want the piano tuned, it is your responsibility to schedule and pay for that. You can use your own tuner, or we can recommend one.
