The aim of this guide is to show you how you can record sermons to Audacity and prepare them ready for upload to your church website.
Before we can begin to prepare the audio, we need to record it and there are several ways to do this and you will need to choose the best method for your church.
The easiest method is to place an MP3 recorder on the lectern in front of where the speaker will stand, this requires very little setup and is fairly cheap but usually quality is fairly poor and if the speaker moves or turns away from the recorder, the volume level will drop off. Through a mixer (sound desk) into Audacity or some other digital recorder, if your church already has a mixer to provide sound reinforcement, then this is certainly your best option.
Vocal microphones are for singing not talking, some will do both well but not all, vocal microphones are typically less sensitive than speech microphones so they do not pick up sounds of other singers or instruments as a result they need to be positioned very close to the singer's mouth. As it sounds this is a microphone designed to be placed on a stand, these have a few advantages, they are easy to setup, if you have a lot of people involved in the service using one microphone keeps things easy. This is a step up from the stand microphone and is made to be fitted on top of a lectern, they often have a flexible neck to allow adjustment, it is advisable that a shock mount be fitted also to prevent noises from people placing things on the lectern.
These are the microphones that attach to a person's clothing such as the lapel of a jacket, these are the most popular choice at the moment for churches as it keeps the microphone close to the speaker. These have become popular over recent years as it keeps the microphone close to the sound source, like lavalier microphones, these can be used with a wireless body pack to allow freedom of movement, the disadvantage being that they do sit right to the side of the speaker's mouth and are therefore quite visible which puts many people off. Record high quality – similar reasons, even though we are going to reduce the quality later, it is better to work with high quality source files, then downgrade them. The first thing we need to do is to download Audacity, as with downloading any piece of software, we recommend downloading from official sources only. Before starting make sure that the correct microphone is selected (1), the name for this will vary between machines, just make sure that if you are using a laptop, that you haven't selected the internal microphone. Whilst we are dealing with sound, we are primarily using a screen do the editing so knowing what things look like will be quite helpful here.
Now scan through the file till you find the beginning of the sermon, in our church, the sermon usually starts around 30 minutes in so that is a good place to start looking. When listening to music, it is great having stereo, it sounds so much better but just for a sermon, there really isn't any point having stereo as both channels are most likely identical anyway. If you listen carefully to the sound, you will probably notice a slight hissing, particularly during the silence, the level of this hissing will vary due to a number of factors but regardless of that we are going to remove it as it isn't pleasant to hear and it will make your file a little bigger. The first thing to do is to find a few seconds of silence so we can give Audacity a sample of the noise we want to remove.
Whilst most of the other steps could really be done in any order, I always leave this until last so I am working on the best quality source that I have, this step is to deliberately degrade the sound quality by getting rid of some of the information, again for music you really have to keep the best quality you can so that you can hear the subtle nuances of the music. Set the Bit Rate Mode to variable and Quality to V8, if you need to get size down further you could select V9 but in most cases V8 is fine. Disclaimer: Audacity is 3rd party software and has no connection with ChurchEdit, as such, we are not able to offer support for this software. There is no faultless fundamental explanation of the engine knock over the range of engine conditions at which knock occurs. Sound manipulation is the ability to mimic and distort noise, replicate frequencies, and create sonic blasts of devastating proportions.

Winter is upon us and as professional HVACR technicians, you will need to remember all of those different little bits of information you have stored away on all of the different types of heating equipment. On some heat pump systems, when the unit shuts down there will be a loud knocking sound that will transmit from a check valve to the refrigerant lines, making it sound as if someone is beating on a door or wall. There are two check valves in the heat pump system, and either one of these could be the one making the noise.

Some technicians will try to elevate the suction pressure by adding refrigerant to this system.
When working with a heat pump system that has a suction line accumulator in the outdoor unit, always watch the frost line or sweat line on the side of the accumulator.
When servicing a unit, some technicians will watch the refrigerant pressures for five minutes, then disconnect from the system thinking all is well with the charge.
For a focused refresher on combustion-related problems in gas and oil heating systems, take this Troubleshooting Combustion module. Whatever you decide to learn, we encourage you to learn something heading into this winter season. This guide will not go into great detail on this but will give a brief overview of the options available.
If you must use an MP3 recorder then it is better to buy an external lavalier microphone to clip to the speakers clothing or a headset microphone. If it is possible to place a laptop or desktop near the mixer, then it makes sense to record directly into Audacity as that is what we are going to be working in later.
Choose one that is designed for speech, microphones are designed for different purposes such as vocals, instruments, drums, or speech and the wrong one may not sound or perform well. They do suffer from the issue of needing the speaker to remain close to the microphone, preferably facing it. This also allows you to keep high quality versions should you so desire for other uses such as making CDs.
At the moment we are just going to concentrate on the difference between speech and music, this will help you find your way around the file much quicker than by ear. With experience you will start to be able to see other sounds in the bars like someone knocking a microphone or coughing. Click on a piece of silence just before the beginning of the sermon, you should get a vertical line there where you have clicked.
So have a quick look through the sermon to see if you can find 2-3 seconds where there is no talking, then highlight that. We really do not need that in a sermon audio so we can be a little more drastic and get rid of some of the information. This is a tw stage process, the first stage being to change the projects frequency in the bottom left corner of the screen. So in the top menu go to File → Export set the file type to be MP3, remember it must be MP3 format for uploading to Church Edit. The widely accepted end-gas autoignition theory is available only for the knock at low engine speeds. Here are some of the most common symptoms you’re likely to encounter when servicing heating units.
To determine which check valve is making the noise, some technicians will use a wooden dowel, placing one end of the dowel near the check valve and the other end on their ear.
Another cause can be that after the system has been shut down for a brief time, the high and low side pressures could be near equalization. Some will replace the ball check valve and the expansion valve with an expansion valve that has a check valve built in. Allow the unit to run long enough for all the refrigerant to boil off from within this vessel and become active within the system. If they had waited a few more minutes they would have seen the head pressure climb to a point of tripping the high pressure safety switch. Designed as an introduction to reverse-cycle heat pumps used in residential and light commercial applications, the course covers the components and operational differences of a heat pump vs.
For a thorough treatment of the knowledge and skills needed to become a  highly skilled technician who will install, maintain, and repair residential and small commercial Gas Heat Systems, you can enroll in our 133 HVACR Gas Heat I course. The function and proper use of tools used for effective combustion analysis is also discussed. And if we can help you buff up your skills, update your knowledge or answer any questions, please contact us and we’ll be happy to talk with you.

Whilst not essential these are often teamed up with a wireless body pack allowing the speaker to move freely.
So many times someone has simply forgotten to start the recording and has either missed the beginning or missed the entire talk.
Windows users will also need to download some extra files to allow them to export MP3 files at the end. Remember, if you are only using the sermon, you need not worry about the level of the music.
I am going to use settings that I have found give a good balance between quality and size, feel free to experiment but be warned that if you get rid of too much it will sound like the preacher is a robot and will not be pleasant to listen to. There has to be other mechanisms which lead high-speed engine knock, potentially most damaging. Except as otherwise permitted by written agreement, the following are prohibited: copying substantial portions or the entirety of the work in machine readable form, making multiple printouts thereof, and other uses of the work inconsistent with Japan and applicable foreign copyright and related laws.
Another fix is to install a bi-directional solenoid valve in the liquid line that cycles off with the compressor contactor. Refrigerant is a fluid and it is normal for it to make noises when moving through piping at high velocities the same as water does.
In mild weather the heat pump unit may run for 5 – 10 minutes, then cycle off because the indoor air temperature has been satisfied. The course explores all the mechanical, electrical, and accessory devices commonly found in modern Gas Heating systems, covers fuel gas composition, electronic ignition, high-efficiency furnaces and more.
Alternately, our Combustion Safety, Testing & Analysis module, covering the application of those concepts in modern HVAC systems and equipment might be just the information you need to level up your skills this winter.
At least if you miss the beginning of the service you should hopefully still get the entire talk.
Now we should just have the sermon remaining and the part that takes the most of your time is done. In this paper the approaches to the in-cylinder autoignition are reviewed and three novel mechanisms are proposed on the basis of our experimental observations. When installing the copper lines for a heat pump system, pay close attention not to allow the copper lines to touch any sheetrock walls or wall studs as this will tend to amplify the noises being transmitted through the copper line set.
When the system is switched over to the heat mode, the indoor coil is now the condenser coil, the indoor airflow will still be inadequate, and with the system being overcharged the compounded issues will cause the high pressure switch to trip, shutting the outdoor heat pump unit off. With this knowledge, you can build troubleshooting skills and identify applicable codes as they pertain to the installation and use of these systems. Install these also, preferably to the default location so Audacity will be able to find them automatically. The export may take a couple of minutes after which you should have a file ready for upload.
The proposed mechanisms would give more appealing interpretations for the high-speed knocking and former non-autoignition theories of knock initiation. The fix for this problem is to resolve the indoor airflow problem.  Then correct the refrigerant charge.
In the colder weather, the longer run time has allowed all of the refrigerant to become active within the refrigerant system, and if the system is overcharged this will cause the unit to trip on high head pressure. You’ll want to have a strong working knowledge of basic HVACR fundamentals prior to taking this advanced course.
Also extremely important is the course’s focus on safety for the technician, the building, and its occupants. Completion of Gas Heat I earns 18 hours of CEH credit applicable to NATE re-certification, and 9 BPI CEUs.
