remote recordings with audacity

Good evening all,

I do podcasts and while doing my research to help me in my work, I came across audacity.

I wanted to know if it was possible to make remote recordings via audacity? I’ll explain. For all my interviews at the moment, I do them via skype or zoom (thanks coronavirus). Is the quality of my recordings guaranteed even in these cases please?

Thanks :slight_smile:

Audacity can only record from one “device” at a time. This makes it tricky to record your own microphone plus a remote microphone at the same time.

The easiest way to record a Zoom conference call is to use Zoom’s built in recorder. I don’t know what the quality will be like, I’ve never tried it, but it looks straightforward if you are hosting the call.

The best way in terms of sound quality, is for both parties to record their own microphone, then assemble the two recordings in “post production”.

I was wondering if I could play the recording with audacity during the interviews.
but actually, I’m going to ask my guests to record on their own. Thanks :slight_smile:

If you’re happy with audio-only and don’t need to see the guests, maybe check out [url][/url]

It works through the Chrome browser and was designed (I think) for multi-guest podcast, but it’s currently used for all sorts. BBC have been using it to record radio shows remotely during lockdown. The audio will likely be way better than zoom/skype. One end acts as the studio and can record all parties within the browser, then download the WAV for editing.

Oh, thank you very much. I’m going to test for my next interview.


I am also interested in the subject.
By the way, do you use specific material for your podcasts?


so for my equipment, since I didn’t know much about it either. I looked at a lot of comparators, and finally it is on [Advertising is not permitted] that I found my happiness.
