We also use a monitor channel and mix from there, but ours goes into a dvd recorder along with a video stream. We then rip the DVD to the computer and post it all online. We will be moving to recording on a computer in order to skip a couple steps, but right now that works for us.

We replaced our tape recorder with a tascam 900 rw cd recorder. and purchased a 1 to 5 cd copier. CDs are now cheaper than tapes.and the sound it much better. we use one of the monitor channels to mix the worship team practice to a tolerable listening level record the last time through each song and make copies for the musicians and singers. we also record the sermon to cd. i would use cd recorder because of the better sound quality than an mp3 and because of the no learning curve.

We have our sound board connected to our computer and use a program called Propaganda to record straight to the computer. Once it is recorded we can save things as an mp3 or wav file.

Then we either upload them as a podcast or burn them to a CD with the CD burner on the computer.

It's pretty cost effective so I hope this helps!

@ noahvinny You should be able to connect your PC to your board via a 1/4" to 1/8" cable. 1/4" out from your board and 1/8" in to your computer's mic input. As far as software is concerned, check out the open source software called Audacity. http://audacity.sourceforge.net/

Finding a CD recording deck is the easiest and most cost-effective solution. It will record the sermon as audio, which you can rip as a mp3 on virtually any computer. Plus, for your church's sound techs, there is no learning curve: instead of pushing record on the tape deck they are pushing record on the CD deck.

Yeah we still record to tape to. I wanted to know what do we use if we have a PC, like I have a Dell? And also what are the chords called that we need to buy that go from the board to the digital recorder or computer.

Here at our church we record in GarageBand on the iMac we have at our sound booth. We run an XLR cable into an m-audio interface, then from the interface into the computer via usb. Also, check out this link: http://www.churchmediadesign.tv/ Go to episode #2. They explain some basic sound board to PC connections.

We record directly to a cd, but I do not recommend that. Go to guitar center and purchase a digital recorder. You don't need anything fancy, it just needs an input that can come off one of the axillary sends on the sound board. You can take the mp3 file the recorder creates and put it on a cd or upload it as a podcast.
