Oh, I see it now in the link you posted. I will have him try that the next time we record and will report back.

See if Zencastr has any help and Google your brains out.

I know your goal is to have everything work perfectly, but from where we're standing, anything you do to make it worse or change it in any way is also valuable.

Also there's the troubleshooting technique of change one thing and see what happens. Like do a voice test with the laptop (I assume it's a laptop) built-in microphone instead of the Meteor. I know it's not likely to sound very good, but if the timing problem vanishes, that could be useful to know.

The local recording for zencastr happens in the browser, I think?

Maybe he's using an older browser that's not really HTML 5 compliant?

There's a lot of new stuff in HTML 5 that hasn't been tested. I was playing around with multi-channel playback a few days ago. It worked, but afterwards my audio setup was weird. It worked, but meters didn't show anymore. And volume control didn't work either. Nothing a restart couldn't fix, but still...

How do you coordinate the show? When I shot that broadcast session, the station and my performer called each other on the telephone. It's amazingly freeing to be able to split coord from the actual performance.

I accepted the posting with the idea it may make a good alternative for multi-point podcasting rather than trying to record Skype [cringe], even if it was a commercial.

I couldn't tell. Is it a paid license?

I need to go find it again. There's a New Yorker Magazine cartoon of two people talking.
