how to record sound out of a board in a concerts
 
guys, i need to record a sound out of a board to an mp3 player in a way so that it doesnt get distorded how should i set it up?

That depends on a few things, like WHAT mp3 player and WHAT sound board?

Probably the stero line out (or rec out / tape out) from the board to the line in (or rec in / tape in) of the mp3 recorder. 1/4" plug(s) for the board side to 1/8" stero plug for the mp3 recorder.
What mp3 recorder are you using?

iRiver iFP-790 or higher, depends on how much you want to spend per MB of space.

I bought a Sony Hi-MD recorder (the MZ-M100) and I love the sound the I get from it.

The main reason I didn't go with the 790 is because when I'm on location (which I am a lot) there wasn't any place to put the sound once I got it and ran out of room. With the Sony option I just put in a new 1GB disk.

The M100 is very cool and records WAV files!

These guys make some interesting audio gear. Sorry I don't know much about them, but I remember someone telling me they were good for recording stuff.

Many soundboards have a "tape out" (RCA phono plugs) connection.
That's usually a good signal for recording. cables that runs mail RCA phono plugs to a male 3.5mm stereo jack are pretty common.

For live events (especially music) I like to run a live camcorder too. If you position it right, the onboard stereo mic of many camcorders create a decent live sound. If you mix it with your audio from the board it won't feel so flat.
