    How to Record an Interview call through Skype in Audition CC

    idopodcast

      Hi,

       

      I would like to record a Skype Interview call using Adobe Audition CC.

       

      I have seen posts about this topic, however, no one gives a step by step process to set it up if you are an absolute newbie to Audition.

       

      I am able to get Track 1 to reconize my voice, but I can't figure out how to get Track 2 to pick up the other person's voice I am interviewing through the Skype call. I am using Skype's call recording as a back up, however, I hear the call quality is better if it goes straight into Adutiton.

       

      Do I need a mixer for this to be possible?

       

      I am sure it has something to do with the input and output, but just ahve no idea where to start.

       

      Any help would be greatly apprecaited!

       

      Thank you!!!!

          Yes an external mixer is the best way. See this thread from last week. There is a link to a .pdf describing how to do it.

            Thank you!

             

            Now you said it's best, however, if you don't have a mixer is it still possible?

             

            Also, the PDF is great. If I get a mixer, Are there directions for after you set that up and you need help setting up the interface?

             

            Thank you!

              It might be, but if you think that setting it up with a mixer might be difficult, I can assure you that without one it's going to be a whole load harder, especially if you have to use an internal sound device. And no I haven't tried - nor am I likely to.

              No, because I haven't rewritten it yet! (as mentioned on the other thread).

               

              If you are serious about doing this, a small mixer is a very good idea anyway, and they really don't cost that much nowadays. I haven't tried it, but I think that it should be relatively easy to set this up with one of the mixers that also contains an audio interface (so you just have to connect it via a USB cable). I will look into that. The version in the .pdf works with any mixer, although it needs unimpeded line in/line connections on your computer. Most of them can just about manage this, but some manufacturers still make this difficult.
