Overview Recorder Audio CDs WAV-to-MP3 Direct-To-PC VIDEO Help Submit/Upload

BROADCASTING MP3 SERMONS IS WHAT WE DO BEST!

We broadcast 877,581 sermons from 20,115 different speakers each and every day. Our auto-conversion system allows for a super-easy way for you to upload in any format and we deliver sermons by streaming, downloading, podcasting, embedding, and support mobile devices of every kind including the iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Android, BlackBerry, ROKU TV, and other mobile phones.

The purpose of this section will be to show you how it can be done easily. We have found that there are a few different ways that our broadcasters are putting their sermons on SermonAudio. Review these various methods and choose whatever suits your needs best!

JUST UPLOAD, WE'LL AUTO-CONVERT!

The bottom line is that as long as your audio is encoded in the MP3 format (or WMA format) at any bitrate you should be good to go! We can auto-convert any MP3 file uploaded into the correct setting.

Watch the brief video tutorial below to learn how to submit sermons to SermonAudio!




METHOD 1:
PORTABLE DIGITAL VOICE RECORDER

(RECOMMENDED METHOD)

Sony Digital Voice RecorderDigital Voice Recorders are inexpensive and get good results.

MicroTrack Recorder
The MicroTrack is a high-fidelity mobile 2-channel digital recorder that records to CompactFlash.
Zoom H2 Handy Recorder
The Zoom H1 Handy Recorder is a portable digital recorder with a builtin MIC that records to SD cards.
  A quick-and-easy way to get your church's sermons on SermonAudio is to employ the use of a digital voice recorder. We actually recommend this as the easiest, fastest, and most economical method of getting your sermons on the site.

Today's digital voice recorders are relatively inexpensive and because they are portable, they can record conveniently in any setting (church, special meetings, open-air, etc). The recorded audio can be quickly transferred to a computer and then converted to the MP3 format.
    Summary of steps:
  • Use a digital voice recorder with a lapel mic OR a line-in from your existing sound system to record.
  • Easily transfer the audio file to your computer.
  • All MP3 files are encoded at 16kbps bitrate (HIFI: 64kbps) but you can upload them at any bitrate and we'll auto-convert!
  • Use the Submit Sermon form to submit the sermon details and then upload the MP3! (more help on submit & upload)
  • Acceptable audio formats: MP3, WMA, WAV, M4A.
We've provided a separate page that shows (step-by-step) how to transfer the audio from the recorder to your computer using the Sony Digital Voice Recorder as an example.
 



METHOD 2:
CONVERT EXISTING AUDIO CDs to MP3s

dbPowerAmp
The dbPowerAmp tool can be used to quickly convert your existing Audio CDs to MP3 files. Great tool!
  If you already have your sermons on Audio CDs, then there is a simple solution for you! All you need is a program to "rip" the audio off of the CD and upload it to SermonAudio!

For this type of encoding work, we highly recommend dbPowerAmp.
    Summary of steps:
  • Your sermons must already be on Audio CDs.
  • Use the dbPowerAmp to "rip" the CD and create an MP3.
  • All MP3 files are encoded at 16kbps bitrate (HIFI: 64kbps) but you can upload them at any bitrate and we'll auto-convert!
  • Use the Submit Sermon form to submit the sermon details and then upload the MP3! (more help on submit & upload)
We've provided a separate page that shows (step-by-step) how to "rip" your Audio CDs and convert them to MP3 files using the dbPowerAmp program as an example.
 



METHOD 3:
RECORD FROM TAPE OR DIRECT-TO-PC


Adobe Audition is a professional-grade audio editor. Excellent!

Free Sound Recorder is a great free MP3 sound recording tool.

Cool Record Edit is an attractive and inexpensive audio editor!

Another very capable, powerful audio editor.. FREE of charge!
  Use this method if you need to transfer your sermons from cassettes or if you simply wish to record directly into the computer from an existing sound system (mandatory for live webcasting).

Recording directly into the computer requires the most effort in setup and a computer must be available at the recording location but this eliminates all intermediate steps and provides the fastest way to create the MP3 files for SermonAudio.

You will need to connect your audio source to either the computer's LINE-IN or MIC port with the proper cables. You will also need a program to capture the audio and save it as an MP3 file.
  • The PolderbitS website provides an excellent step-by-step tutorial on how to connect your audio source to your PC.
Look to the links on the left for some recommended software tools.
    Summary of steps:
  • Connect your audio source to your computer.
  • Use Audition, Cool Record Edit, ... to record the audio.
  • Directly save the recorded audio (preferably: MP3 file).
  • All MP3 files are encoded at 16kbps bitrate (HIFI: 64kbps) but you can upload them at any bitrate and we'll auto-convert!
  • Use the Submit Sermon form to submit the sermon details and then upload the MP3! (more help on submit & upload)
  • Acceptable audio formats: MP3, WMA, WAV, M4A.
We've provided a separate page that shows (step-by-step) how to capture audio from your cassette (or live service) and save it directly to an MP3 file using the Adobe Audition program as an example.
 



METHOD 4:
CONVERT EXISTING AUDIO FILES (WAV-TO-MP3)

dbPowerAmp
The dbPowerAmp tool can be used to quickly convert your existing audio files to MP3 files. Great tool!
  If you already have your sermons on the computer in a non-MP3 audio format, then this is the easiest method for you!

All you need to do is convert your existing audio files to the MP3 format ideal for SermonAudio. (we recommend dbPowerAmp). We've provided a separate page that shows (step-by-step) how to convert WAV audio files to the MP3 format as an example.
