Ok, so first thing’s first:
Windows 10, 64 bit
Audacity 2.1.3 (just updated from 2.1.1)
I have an audio interface, and I’m wanting to record audio from skype calls. I want the audio coming from skype to be separate from my mic.
Unfortunately I seem to be having some difficulty. programs that claim to do just that, don’t seem to work for one reason or another.
I have resorted to running the skype call audio to my interface (into the headphones) and running a male/male audio cable into the second line input. This appears to work just fine, but I have hit a bit of a snag.
I have my recording set up in audacity to record stereo, giving me my microphone audio on one channel, and the skype audio on the second channel. The problem is, I want to be able to hear the other end of the call, without also hearing myself coming through my headset (has that speech jammer effect on me)
So, I have playthrough enabled on Audacity so I can hear the audio from the call, but I also hear myself at the same time. is there a way to mute the playthrough of my mic, but retain playthrough of the other channel?
So, I have
Mic > Behringer UMC22 (Line 1) > PC
Skype > Behringer UMC22 (headphones) > Behringer UMC22 (Line 2) > PC
Both inputs are being recorded, and this works fine (I guess) except for the fact that I can’t hear the skype call without also hearing myself with a delay. I just want to hear the skype call as well as record it.
If anyone has any suggestions, it would be much appreciated, as I’m more than likely doing this wrong to begin with.
