I'm after a cheap, easy to use digital recording method for recording our services.
We've used audacity on the laptop which we use for openlp, but I'd prefer a simpler solution that isn't reliant on the laptop.
I've also used an MP3 player, but that requires turning on, using a jog dial to find the right menu option, changing the settings and pressing and holding play. This is fine for me, but may be a bit much for other people who may need to run the a/v.
I've seen solid state rack mount recorders which record onto a compact flash card - one of these would be ideal but they're expensive (from £400).
Any suggestions? What do you use?
