Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale, a 3,650-seat facility, is one of Florida’s largest modern worship venues, featuring state-of-the-art audio/video recording capabilities along with extensive live sound and lighting systems. The Chapel recently added a Blue Sky 5.1 surround monitoring system, which was purchased from Harris Audio of Miami in 2002, and the speakers were installed in Calvary Chapel’s in-house recording studio, which also features a new Pro Tools|HD system and a Neve V Series console.

Calvary Chapel is beginning to do onsite recording and mixing for live DVD release, entitled Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale Live. The DVD presents a night of worship music performed by the church’s choir and band, with release set for early 2003. "We knew that we’d be moving more into DVD and surround audio formats in the future," said Michael Grosso, chief sound engineer for Calvary Chapel, who mixed both the live sound and the recordings. "I had been introduced to the Blue Sky monitors by Mike Harris, of Harris Audio in Miami, who really raved about their performance. But what clinched it for me was hearing them perform, which I was able to do at Spectrum Recording Studios, a studio in Ft. Lauderdale that has Blue Skys installed. I was knocked out by them there, and they sound just as good here.

"Also," continued Grosso, "I like the fact that the Blue Sky speakers are very well-balanced: They’re pleasant to listen to but not hyped, so you can work on them a long time but still know you’re getting an accurate playback. They’re a great speaker system."
