Willowbrook Baptist Church adds clarity to its orchestra


In order to provide in-ear monitoring and clear sound for its 12-piece orchestra, the Willowbrook Baptist Church’s main campus in Alabama has upgraded its worship centre with a Klang in-ear monitor mixing system and a DiGiCo S21 FOH console. The products were supplied by DiGiCo’s American distributor Group One and installed by Redwire Audio Visual.

‘The new Klang system was part of the first phase of the church’s update and it has proven to be a critical component of it,’ said Tim Johnson, president, founder and general manager of Redwire. ‘Their worship orchestra had been frustrated by the lack of flexibility with their old IEM system, so we brought the Klang:fabrik in for a demo and they experienced a huge difference.’

The Klang:fabrik takes feeds via a Dante network and three DiGiCo A168 STAGE I/O expanders from the S21 console. ‘The S21 has made a huge difference in the church’s sound,’ Johnson added. ‘It’s even made the existing sound system perform better, with excellent clocking that dealt with digital “smearing” issues they had with the previous console that muddied the sound. The operation is very volunteer friendly. The church has a full-time media director who does a lot of the front-of-house mixing, but they rotate mixing duties for the three or more Sunday services every week and they have all taken to it.’

Willowbrook’s minister of production, Chris Olson, commented that the church’s musicians were impressed with the Klang:fabrik’s sound and ease of use. ‘They’re able to put their instruments exactly where they want in the sound field and spread the entire image out nicely, which really makes them more comfortable on stage,’ he said. ‘Plus, it does help keep the stage looking neat and clean, so it’s all just “plug and play” for our tech team, with everything on just a single Cat-5 cable and by eliminating all of the individual mixers on stage.’
