conference w 15 participants> audio headset& can debate w each other/medium sized room. wireless mics end in 3,5 mm audio jack/ USB, mixing together easy / cheap as possible - audio goes into recording. suggestions?

You have 15 wireless headsets each with its own receiver, terminating in either USB or balanced minijack which is it? That sounds ultra shit. 15 channels of radio is quite a lot and a 15 channel mixer taking minjack inputs does not exist.

I would reject this nonsense and pay someone to do it for you. They could bring minjack to XLR cables and a desk. Ultimately, like DC says, the best and cheapest result would be getting it onto Skype (most likely with Bluetooth headsets because at this price point they will work) and recording the result with an app like Audio Hijack (which records the audio of any app running on your computer).

Happy to help if you give any more info, but at the moment it doesn’t sound like you’ve got the kit to record 15 ways of Bluetooth or RF into a computer.

But it’s a really easy job for someone that does, so call a local corporate sound hire company and ask them if they can send a technician for a half day.

If they are all in the same room why are they wearing headsets? Just stick an omnidirectional mic on the table, into your laptop and record it in Audacity or GarageBand.

Look, here’s an omnidirectional conference mic. Plugs into your USB port, costs $60:

Just put it on the middle of the table, it picks up the whole room. They don’t sound “nice” but they can be clear if there’s not too much glass and tile.
