Metric uses our Still Small Voice Box momentary XLR splitters while on international tours. Each vocalist on stage is equipped with one, and every bit of vocals on stage runs through one. The default output connects to the FOH system, while the secondary output is routed to the dedicated monitor mixer. By stepping on the switch during a sound check or performance, the vocalist can communicate to the mixer tech requesting a change in their in-ear monitor mix, or to communicate with the band. Of course, nobody else hears what’s going on since the default channel is muted for communication to only those who need to hear it. The Still Small Voice Box allows for pop-free switching, even with the +48V phantom powered condenser microphones Metric uses on tour.
International House of Prayer (IHOP-KC)
IHOP-KC was searching for a reliable XLR switch box for use as a talk back system during live worship times. They were the first users of the updated version of our Push To Talk Box. With a 24/7 prayer room with live worship music at the center of their missions base, sound equipment is run hard until it dies – the perfect environment for any piece of gear up to the challenge! The switch boxes are found in their main prayer room and in various other locations on their campus, and are used for other conferences and events.

Ryan Richburg is the Lead Worship Pastor at High Point Community Church in Corner, AL, a bedroom community of Birmingham, AL. Ryan’s true heart is ministering to the local church and helping develop Christians as a part of that community of believers. He is married to the love of his life, Natalie. Both of them travel the south east sharing the compassion that Christ has poured out in their hearts.
Ryan hopes that through worship, a person can have communication with God. He believes that most Christians claim to have a relationship with Christ, but lack a deep, intimate relationship that our Savior deserves. The goal of Ryan’s ministry is to help facilitate an honest conversation between a loving Father and his rebellious creation.
