Help with Blue Snowball microphone

Permanent link to this post Posted by Rcturbo » Fri Feb 10, 2017 6:39 am

HI all, brand new here. Quick question: I tried to record a skype call tonight on Audacity and was using my Blue Snowball microphone. I couldn't get the call to record since Audacity was not giving me a "stereo recording" once I switched to the WASAPI setting. Is there a way around this? Or does the Blue Snowball mic not offer a Stereo setting while using WASAPI? All help is appreciated.

Thanks
Rcturbo

Chances of you getting a good Skype show recording using standard Audacity and computer management are almost (but not quite) zero.

There are software packages which claim to record both sides of a Skype call.

viewtopic.php?p=251167&sid=dcbda04d2a287684a818466726af5091#p251167

There is a commercial product currently struggling with the latest Skype product change.

http://www.pamela.biz/en/products/

And the software package Voicemeter

They all (including Audacity) at one time both worked and failed. Pamela is the paid package and has the most stable success. Pamela will produce a stereo show with you on one side and the guest(s) on the other ready for production, filtering and matching. It will also create a high quality WAV production file.

I did my show test with two computers.
