We have a medium sized church about 400 max at each service and we want to start recording our services and special events like the Christmas pageant. I know there are several topics related to church recording but I'm looking for some real basic info. We have a decent sound system, our church is a half octagon shape with four speaker sets above the main section. We have carpet on the floors and a wood ceiling and walls. On most Sundays we have the choir and organ. On special occasions we will add soloist and other instruments, strings, flutes, harp, guitar etc... We do not have a sound engineer (me?), I'm tasked with providing our music director with a list of equipment we need to get started. Can we do this ourselves or do we need professional help? We want to be able to output to any format requested by members of the congregation (CD, tape, post to the website).
