The 930-capacity venue has also installed a Renkus-Heinz line array, a Dolby surround sound system and a trio of display screens.
Regarding the iLive system, Pastor TN Park commented: “I am very proud that we have the iLive system installed. We host a rock concert at least once every two months as younger generations are involved in the church’s activities, and this system has the capacity to manage all the requirements.”
The new system has also met with the satisfaction of house engineer SH Park, formerly an analogue loyalist. “I have been reluctant to move over to digital mixing, but iLive gave me confidence to believe that I can produce the same, if not a better, performance than if I was using an analogue console,” he said. “Now that I have used the system for various events, including a rock concert, I feel very comfortable with iLive, and I am impressed with its functionality and control layout.”
The Bethel Independent Church is by no means the only Korean venue to have installed iLive in recent times. Gyeongsang National University in Chinju has an iLive system comprising an iDR10 MixRack with iLive-80 Control Surface, while Yesuin Presbyterian Church in Seoul also has an iLive-80 at its disposal. Finally, Juan Presbyterian Church in Incheon has an iDR10 MixRack with iLive-144 Control Surface as part of its audio configuration.
