      I want to thank you in advance for any and all help.

      We are recording our services using Sony SD remote controlled cameras, a Roland SE-500 data switcher, the sound board is a Soundcraft Si Impact.

      We are having a terrible time with the audio being distorted, but I monitor it coming out of the board using good quality headphones and it sounds great going to the PC. At this time we do not have the ability to edit/mix the audio once it hits the PC and I need advice on how or what I need to have the ability to check and adjust sound settings on the recording.

      I hope this makes sense, I am a rank amateur at this but I really want to make it the best it can be. Please keep in mind this is for a Church and we have a pretty tight budget. That being said we are willing to pay what we need to to have quality sound and video.

      God bless you for reading and hopefully responding,

      Sounds just like the output from the PC is mismatched to the card. It’s probably expecting a microphone and microvolts, and is getting a line input with volts! Ideally you need a proper audio interface – for line level, less than fifty pounds for decent quality and facilities – just connects by USB and handles all the computer audio inputs and outputs

      How is the signal input to the PC? PC’s microphone input? Like Paulears said above, you need a proper capture device. A simple USB audio device will do the trick. This one worked well for me on my Windows laptop.
