Hi, I’m really new to this and trying to figure out how to record a Skype call on Audacity 2.3.3 using Windows 10 for podcasting. I know that I can’t simultaneously record my mic and the sound coming from Skype, so I figured I would just use my computer’s mic to record my voice and do all one track. It’s okay if the sound quality isn’t as good as with my Yeti microphone. When I follow the instructions I’ve found online and test using Echo Sound Service, Audacity records the sound effects signalling the beginning and end of a Skype call but neither my nor the bot’s voice. The settings I have on are WASAPI, Microphone Stereo Mix (which I enabled in the Windows sound settings), Stereo or Mono (neither works), Speakers (Realtek HD Audio). The only time I have been able to record both the bot’s voice and the sound effects coming from Skype was when I had my Yeti mic plugged in and the settings were: WASAPI, Microphone (Yeti Stereo Mic loopback), Mono recording channel, Speakers (Yeti Mic). In this case, I can’t record my voice at all. I honestly find this all very confusing and don’t understand how to simply record a call. I tried to do it directly in Skype, but it was not an option to record the call when I was doing my test call with Echo. Perhaps it would work if I were calling a person?
Appreciate any help with this.
