Parkway Pentecostal Church in Madison County, Mississippi recently invested in a pair of Solid State Logic audio mixing consoles ahead of its annual Apostolic Conference. The new SSL L200 and SSL SiX mixers will also be used for the church’s regular live broadcast services.

‘One of the main things that we wanted to improve was our broadcast quality; we were very dissatisfied with what we were sending out over the airways,’ said Parkway’s music director, Serena Lentz.

The consoles were sold by Porche Advanced Systems, which demonstrated to Lentz how the L200 and SiX could be used to together.

‘Where I believe SSL really shines, is in their summing algorithms,’ explained Porche Advanced Systems’ owner, Jake Porche. ‘The console’s ability to process multiple inputs, and keep those inputs separated in the mix, is a true leap forward for digital consoles. It truly separates SSL from all other manufacturers at this time. This has been my main problem with digital consoles moving away from analogue consoles. I like the stem groups, the ease in changing the fader count layout, in addition to the dynamics.’

SSL’s Query button was also a selling point. ‘I obviously can’t be there all the time at the church but, when I’m not, and we get questions from users, it’s often “How do I do this, or access this?” and I normally ask: “What channel do you want to send where?” and when they tell me, I simply say: “See the Q button? Press that, and it populates what’s being sent out from that respective channel.” This is the Query functionality, which is just fantastic on the SSL.’

The congregation has reportedly spotted a big difference in the improvement of the sound. ‘We’ve had several people comment,’ said Lentz. ‘It has made everyone’s lives so much better because things have been simplified, and we have a system that we can depend on.

‘We want to eventually get to the point where we have a production team on staff, and take it to another level, but we’re not there yet. This has been an answer to our prayers to help us do what we need to do, and to provide the level of quality that we want to provide – and we don’t have to call for support to get someone sent up here every week to help us.’
