How can I improve the quailty of my streaming audio?

Episode 1003 (2:21:00)

Barry from Ulysses, KY

Barry is the IT at his church and needs to improve the audio capability so they can improve their mp3s online. Leo says that hardware probably isn't the issue if people in the church aren't complaining about the quality of the audio. So that means it's likely the interface, and it sounds like the settings are overdriving, forcing the record to "clip." He should try a line input instead of mic input, and maybe install a preamp to go in between the sound system and the computer itself.
