I just purchased a MSI CX61 2P 499US laptop. It should arrive within a week. But I have a question about connecting my mixer from church to an interface, and recording the sermon.
Here’s the exact setup:
1- Beringer PMP 3000 powered Mixer
1- Shure BLXR SM58 Wireless Mic system
4 - Sennheiser e835 wired mics
8- Mic inputs (just using one BLXR SM58 , and using four e835)
–using BLXR SM58 for the sermon/pastor and using the e835’s for praise singers
CD/Tape input and output (was using a Tascam CD Recorder, until someone broke it)
Speakon jack (using for FOH speakers)
Main Out #1, two unbalanced 1/4 jacks (not using)
Main Out #2, two unbalanced 1/4 jacks (not using)
Monitor #1, one balanced 1/4 jack (using)
Monitor #2, one balanced 1/4 jack (not using)
Mono out, one balanced 1/4 jack, for a Sub (not using)
Insert out, two unbalanced 1/4 jacks (using for a dbx 1231 dual EQ)
Question 1a and 1b: Which software would provide the minimum features to record this event? Also which software would provide the most ideal recording?
Question 2: Can I record the sermon using the MSI CX61 2P laptop, an interface, the mixer, and wireless mic?
Question 3: If I can record, what would be the best method to connect these components?
