Alesis 4 Channel USB skype

OK so I have a Alesis 4 Channel USB. I am using it to record a podcast with someone in the same room. We are able to get everything sounding ok but for whatever reason we can not get Skype or other sounds to record back into audacity we can hear them as the line in or over the usb. I have the lastest audacity and am running windows 8.

Alesis MultiMix 4 USB??

Skype manages its own sound channels. If you can get the Alesis to produce four recorded channels, you need to route the Skype speaker feed into one of the Alesis inputs. Jumper cable? Then you may need a “Y” cable so you can hear the person at the other end.
