Audio is nothing more than a series of tubes
I was finally able to successfully record both sides of a Skypecast recently, and during the trials and tribulations of configuring the system, I came up with a way to do it without the wonderful in-ear echo that you sometimes get. The configuration only takes Audacity, Skype, three Virtual Audio Cables, and four Audio Repeaters. (I say only with a bit of sarcasm.) Here's a flow showing how this "series of tubes" gets plumbed: http://www.gliffy.com/publish/1100863/L I'll try and explain in detail how this works in my next post. For now, think about the virtual audio cables as real audio cables on a stereo giving you places to "patch into" the audio feed.
