I have guests calling from cell phones or land lines to my Skype number. I have recorded straight into Audacity
with the following specs: Skype – Samson mic and Samson output (speaker) and then, Audacity – Samson mic and Realtek Spakers. There is a hum I hear and the guest is low volume but not distorted.
I need to eliminate the hum and amply guest voice. I tried other combinations – S and R and S and R, etc… but they muffle the guest and give me a hum. tips on doing this straight from Skype to Audacity using my Samson microphone are welcome.
however, I have tried using VoiceMeeter and it has been a failure. I cannot figure out what good it is or how to set the parameters correctly to filter on its way into Audacity. Do I need VoiceMeeter? How does it help? How can I set the controls properly? Please advise.
if not VoiceMeeter, is there some other software our forum recommends instead as the go between from Skype to Audacity?
Or is Skype a fool’s errand and I need to get some other service that will provide clear input to record from a podcast guest phoning in. And that is the key thing: my guests are not tech savvy (neither may I for that matter). I don’t want them having to go to a website or computer or app. I want them just to dial a phone number that will take them to wear I can answer and record them.
I thank the community for any assistance they can offer.
