Denton Bible Church (DBC) has taken ownership of a new DiGiCo Quantum338 console for FOH and monitor mixing and an SD12 as a broadcast audio console. Based in Texas, DBC’s origins date back to the 1970s when the congregation numbered no more than a dozen members. AV systems integrator Digital Resources integrated and commissioned the consoles in DBC’s current, 3,500-seat auditorium.

This is DBC’s second purchase in the digital mixing arena. “Their next digital consoles had to be able to continue to provide a lot of I/O and a high degree of functionality,” explained Digital Resources’ audio sales manager, Lance Eddleman. “Their SD12, for instance, is the latest 96-input-channel model, which gives them plenty of I/O for their broadcasts. And the Quantum338 gives them the high number of faders they wanted, to support their blended traditional and contemporary worship styles, as well as some really advanced features, such as the Spice Rack and Nodal Processing.”

Eddleman adds that the SD12’s small footprint, which allowed it to fit next to the church’s Pro Tools system, as well as its high input capability, made the console the natural choice for DBC’s broadcast needs. “We also included the Optocore AutoRouter on the network, because it takes the consoles’ inherent flexibility and expands it,” he added.

The Optocore AutoRouter automatically discovers devices and adds them to the Optocore loop. When a mobile device is disconnected or powered down, AutoRouter automatically closes the loop with the remaining devices, discovering and switching links to establish redundancy, without any user action.

“That’s a big deal for this church because they rely heavily on volunteers to run their systems,” said Eddleman. “So, for a small event, like a wedding or a funeral, they can use only the components of the sound system that they need, such as a single console and SD-Rack, instead of having to turn the entire system on.”

The two new consoles represent a significant shift from the platforms the church had been using, but DBC technical director Preston Fuqua reports that the volunteers are catching on quickly. “With the Quantum338, we can do virtual soundchecks, combining recorded tracks and live instruments simultaneously, which is a great thing for training. Both consoles have been a dream come true for us. They are our future, here now.”
