Yeah, I think I'll try using my iPad as the Skype device next time so the PC can concentrate on recording my side of the conversation. That way I should be able to set the recording levels and they stay at whatever I set them at. Otherwise they always go up while my co-podcaster is talking and then adjust themselves once I start talking, and that's not really very useful for a consistent recording.

It makes post production crazy-hard. The reason you're doing all this work is so you can have "clean" tracks to work with when you do your edit. Isn't this happening to the far side voice when you play the thumb drive they sent you in UPS?

USB drive? Heh. We're cloudin' it all the way. ;)

I have to say that my ears aren't yet attuned to what kind of issues are caused by what. I assume my friend has the same problem, but he's not the most tech-savvy, so before I suggest any solution to him I want to have it solved at my end.
