My name is Dave Stagl, and for the last 25 years I have immersed myself in the world of audio production. These days I focus primarily on live sound and sound reinforcement specializing in live mixing and loudspeaker optimization, setup, and design. I record and mix in the studio as my schedule allows and over my career I’ve also worked in broadcast, sound design, and post-production audio.
I’ve worked with a diverse group of artists over the years including Kristian Stanfill, Jesus Culture, Phil Keaggy, Steve Fee, Todd Fields, Chris Tomlin, Mark Schultz, Buddy Greene, Matthew West, and Leonard Ahlstrom(NewSong). I’ve also worked for corporate and broadcast clients including HGTV, Motorola, Wyndham Vacations, Apple Vacations, Siemens, and McDougall Littell.
Up until the middle of 2015, I spent 11 years focused on audio in Houses of Worship and served as the Audio Director for one of the largest churches in the United States, North Point Community Church outside of Atlanta, for 9 of those years. At North Point I oversaw all audio production related to the Sunday morning experience including mixing, managing and training volunteers and staff, and keeping the audio world up and running. Over the course of my time on staff I supervised two concert level sound system installations in 2200+ seat venues, upgraded FOH and monitor consoles, redesigned the entire audio infrastructure, and optimized the loudspeaker systems in all of the large venues(500 or more seats) on the campus.
In addition, I’ve been one of the most-frequent featured guests on the Church Tech Weekly podcast. I’ve presented at production conferences, and I’ve had articles published in Church Production Magazine and on Waves website. I’ve also done some testing and consulting with equipment manufacturers.
At this point I’ve spent over half my life devoted to the world of audio, and this website is all about my journey through that world. It’s filled with my thoughts, opinions, and even some tips I’ve picked up along the way.
