Getting Audio Connected-Concise "cliff notes" version

This post is intended as a one-stop-shopping-center to help you purchase the items that will get you a clean, clear audio signal from the chapel’s RecordOut jack into your device. I have omitted information for using the ComTek wireless assisted listening devices (too noisy) , wired omni-directional...

Re: Audio troubleshooting - webcast

Update.... FM group is replacing our Teradek unit this week. They haven't been able to figure out what has been causing the problem yet. Fingers crossed! Your previous post mentioned you moved the Teradek to the chapel and you no longer had any "hum" issues. So it can't be a bad Teradek. ...

Re: Church Webcasts using YouTube Live Streams

Our ward has been using youtube live (webcam) for a couple of weeks. Everything has gone smoothly with one exception. Our setup is a laptop (internal camera) and line-in audio from the pulpit microphone (RCA jacks). When someone is at the pulpit, the audio is perfect. However, when the organ is pla...

Re: USB audio converters

Thanks very much. I didn't know computers were capable of providing power for mics. Since most computers nowadays don't have separate headphone and mic jacks but rather a single TRRS jack, I assume the bias is applied directly to the signal? Yes, Mic signal and bias voltage both appear on the "...

Re: USB audio converters

Thank you both for the recommendations. Where did you get the specs for the Sabrent device? I can't find max input level for any of the devices anywhere. Sometime I can get specs by contacting the manufacturer, but more often I have to obtain the product and use my signal source, DVM, o'scope and t...

Re: USB audio converters

In our case, the record out jack is right next to the network jack by the podium, and is connected to PoE port on the switch. I'd rather invest in wired LAN, wired power, and wired sound. Less to go wrong. Yes, wired is always better if you can do it, and also protect the wires from people walking ...

Re: USB audio converters

Yeah, about $150 for the wireless part. The same company (MOVO) also has a VHF Wireless system for $80. Either way it's not too much to pay. Frankly, the easiest & best quality broadcasting setup I have seen so far is a $400 "MEVO Start" camera (1080P, PTZ Presets, battery operated, s...

Re: Building a cable from sound system to "mic in"

Coming back to this, I'm finding that building the cable is not so simple. I had thought that if I just drop line-level down to the same voltage as standard electret microphone, everyone would be happy. Boy, was I wrong! It turns out my collection of Android cell phones wanted 40dB attenuation. But...

Re: USB audio converters

For tapping in to the building audio (record out jack), does anyone have a line-level USB audio converter they can recommend? Here is an example. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B013E21TUK We have a stake conference in a couple of Sundays with a "visiting" general authority. The "ICS Broad...
