Recording an interview

Post by Cha-Chi Loprete » Sat Nov 21, 2020 2:07 pm

Can someone advise me how to conduct an interview with a guest who is on the phone, (or on Zoom) to record on Audacity.

Recording both sides of a voip conversation with Audacity is difficult. It's much easier to use Zoom's built in recorder.

We had a poster with difficulty on a phone interview, so they folded the interview into Zoom and did it that way.

If you do use the Zoom recorder technique, post back how it worked for you and how it went. Call recording techniques can change depending on your country.

For recording phone interviews on Audacity, I use a phone app Cube ACR. Very good quality - but my voice quality as the interviewer using the phone microphone is poor. So I record my questions through a USB Blue Yeti mic direct into Audacity, at the same time I record the phone call. Then I edit the 2 recordings and end up with broadcast quality interview. Simple. You need to email the phone recording to yourself and load into an Audacity recording.
