Sound Ministers use a remote audio mixer application loaded on an iPad to monitor and adjust sound amplification for the celebrant, deacon, readers, cantors, choir and musicians who use wired and wireless microphones during weekend Masses.
Sound Ministers arrive no later than 20 minutes before Mass to turn on the sound system; check wireless microphones for batteries; and, check for the proper control of all microphone channels using the iPad application.
During Mass the Sound Minister adjusts microphone audio levels and mutes or unmutes microphone channels as needed. Volunteers must be mature and dependable; comfortable using an iPad application; and, have reasonable hearing acuity. Training and ongoing mentoring is provided.
