Pam Shoemaker Two-Way Call Recording

I did it!  I fooled around most the day yesterday with horrible results.  The person on the other end of the Skype call sounded like she was in the middle of a long metal tube.  Today, I opened Audacity and realized that I missed a setting... I forgot to change the drop-down box to "Wave Out Mix."  Once I switched it, it worked!   I decided to add some music to see if I could do it.  The music does not go with the recording at all, but I think I was successful in completing the assignment!

The Homework Report

Very entertaining recording Pam - I sensed a 'special rapport' between you and your guest.  The sounds was fine, so it looks like you've got the basic technical stuff down and are ready to take the next step and attempt streaming.

If you want to start experimenting, you can download Simplecast and check out some of the screencasts here: http://www.webcastacademy.net/streaming-webcasting-windows

Interesting and Engaging!

Hi, Pam.

I enjoyed the recording. As Jeff said, there was a "special rapport" demonstrated in the conversation. Wow! That "delightful young lady" is busy! Her comments on the classes she liked best (and why) were especially interesting, and I wish her continued success.

I thought the intro and exit music added a lot; they established a nice atmosphere for the recording and achieved closure at the end. Also, the sound was very clear: it certainly didn't sound like anyone was in the middle of a long metal tube!

Looking forward to our call!

Hi, Pam.

I'm looking forward to our call—even though I'm still plugging away at Nicecast settings. I hope to be minimally competent by this afternoon, but keep your fingers crossed for me!

All the best—and thanks!
