I’ve been a big fan of PreSonus and their line of StudioLive mixers since we purchased one of the early models for our church. It has been easy to use, and the multi-track recording features have worked great for us. We have an first generation StudioLive 16.4.2 board, so we are

I’ve been using Evernote since 2008 to collect and sort notes. I use it for sermon research, for my prayer journal, and even for saving recipes. It works well since it syncs across multiple devices.
