Hackenbacker Sends The Voice of The X Factor ‘Packing’.

Soho audio facility Hackenbacker has been helping Peter Dickson, one of the UK’s most famous voices, to capture his trademark voice-over style while he is ‘on the road’.

Plus the church doesn’t have a full time AV staff member, so the system had to run in unattended mix mode most of the time.

In addition, Rochester’s Director of Music Peter duBois, who was involved in the install, wanted the option of running attended services with more
