I’ve been doing a small solo podcast for about 3 months in order to get my feet wet and figure out exactly what I’m doing. However, myself and 2 friends are wanting to begin releasing a podcast together, however one of them will be in the room with me and the other is going to be via Skype in a different state. Here is my current setup:
- Behringer Xenyx 802
- 3 Audio Technica ATR2100s, (Friend in the other state has one)
- U control UCA 202 - Behringer Sound Card (and needed cables)
- Windows 8 - Laptop (no mic jack, just headphone), Droid Tablet and Droid Note 4 Phone
I currently have it setup to be able to record both me and my friend in the same room and play music, sound effects off both my phone and tablet through the mixer and into Audacity and it sounds great. However, my issue is with Skype. I’ve researched this in detail and have been using a two-way audio jack, with one going in the FX Sends and the other going in the Line In 5/6 but I don’t know where to stick the other single end. I’ve tried throwing it into my laptop’s headphone jack and then turning that FX channel all the way down, yet when I try to record like that, it just records an obnoxious sound.
Is there anyway around buying another PC? I thought about using one of these on my tablet or phone and running Skype:
I’m not sure if that will work. I want my friend on Skype to hear everything but himself back through Skype. The only other way I know to do this is to have him just record himself and use his headphones (not on his mic) but on his laptop to hear us, and then have us stand far enough back from the computer so our mics don’t pick the audio up. Yet that just sounds like a nightmare, especially if his computer which is a mac, is recording at a different rate.
Thank you for any help, I apologize if my terminology sucks, I’m working on it.
