The Newson method - Recording both sides of a conversation without bothering with the audio repeater

Well, I'll be...... I moved for a reference, and lost what I had written here.  Again.....

 Jeff the Boss has suggested I describe how I seem to have made a reasonable recording of a  two-ended conversation without using the audio repeater.

 

My vital statistics are:

 PC/ Windows XP Pro/Two-sided  conversation on Skype/ Recorded with Audacity - setting stereo mix, recording volume in the middle - a little too high for the person I was interviewing/ Logitech USB micro (I don't know what my partner was using, but almost certainly the same). What else is relevant? Sound card:  Realtek AC 97 (I think that's the sound card..)

You can pick up a link to the audio recording at:

I was interviewing Gavin Dudeney about TEFL, Business English and Second Life. Gavin also made a couple of videos with Camtasia and there are links to those as well as to the audio interview.

Thanks for the info Dennis. A couple of other questions. 

What are your your skype settings for microphone in  (tools / options / audio settings)?

Also, what are your settings Sound playback and Recording in the Audio and Voice tabs of Control Panel/ Sounds & Audio Devices ?

If there's any chance you could post a screenshot like this, that would be great.

I didn't fully answer the question, and posted the wrong screenshot. I was asked:

"What are your your skype settings for microphone in  (tools / options / audio settings)?"

 

Le voila:

Also, what are your settings Sound playback and Recording in the Audio and Voice tabs of Control Panel/ Sounds & Audio Devices ?

 

I think my previous screenshots showed this.
