Skpye audio weak for telephone recording

Hi all,

I'm using Windows - I think I have the Audio Repeater, Audacity, and Skype settings as directed - I was able to record 2-way telephony with Skype lady -  my volume is OK - the Skype volume is very low - I looked in the Volume control and the Control panel and think I have internal Mic all the way up - also in audacity and in Skype... any suggestions?

 

Thanks!!

Suzanne

Audio Energy Boost via Graphic Equalizer

Try using a Graphic Equalizer (a 7 or 10 band one) to boost the energy of some of the audio bands.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graphic_equalizer 

Wiki: "Equalization is used to compensate for the discrepancies of a room's acoustics. Ideally, a sound system would produce a flat frequency response. The frequency response of a room is examined with a Spectrum analyzer and usually a graphic equalizer, with matching frequency bands, is used to compensate for the room acoustics. This is standard practice for sound recording studios, live sound reinforcement systems and some High fidelity sound systems.

One of the most direct uses of equalization is at a live event, where microphones and speakers operate simultaneously. An equalizer is used to ensure that there are no frequency bands where there is a round trip gain of greater than 1, as these are heard as audible feedback. Those frequencies are cut at the equalizer to prevent this."
