Skype for Interviews – excellent HOWTO for recording skype podcasts with @dougkaye

15 Oct

Summary (apart from the stuff that will be known to any podcaster, e.g. good equipment and post-processing):
– Go into Skype Preferences and View Technical Info, where you can detect latency and drop rates, so you can tweak them
– Don’t be a supernode, and make your call direct to the other guy without going through a supernode – shut down skype and reopen to help avoid being a supernode; punch a hole in your firewall to get skype traffic to your pc
– With Audio Hijack Pro or equivalent recorder, set left channel to input and right channel to output; then you have separate tracks which you can mix later
