Hi, I am wanting to record my USB microphone’s audio alongside friend’s audio in a Skype call in Audacity. Is there any way I can record both at once?
When I select “Microphone (Blue Snowball)” it only picks up my voice, then when I select “stereo mix” it only picks up the Skype call…
I would be so unbelievably grateful if you could help me with this.
Thanks in advance, Rhodes
You can use Skype Call Recorder.
or Pamela Business or Pamela Professional.
Pamela is the full pro application and will give you two independent sound tracks so you can edit and filter one voice without interfering with the other.
You are warned about trying to do production in MP3. MP3 compression sound damage builds as you edit. Also, some packages will not give you a split show which can be OK if the sound quality and volume work OK in one pass.
Some people do manage to get Audacity to work recording a full podcast show with Skype, but the process is magic and unreliable.
