Two-way Telephony Recording (Mac)

The Plugging Continues . . . .

As I said in the meeting on 2007-10-28, I'm limping along with
my two-way telephony recording. I've tried it a number of times
with both Nicecast and Audio Hijack Pro on my Mac, but the­
results have not been acceptable; although I read through two
tutorials, I think I must have made a basic error in configuration.­ As a result, I'll keep
playing— concentrating first on Nicenet, then later moving on to Audio Hijack Pro.
I've been fortunate to make contact with some folks from the Academy who have
kindly volunteered to help me figure out where I've  gone awry. At this point (2007-10-31),
we're trying coordinate mutually convenient times for a tutorial session.

In the meantime,
­­­I'm trying hard not to freak out because I'm behind. That's
tough because even though I truly believe that learning how
to set up this project is much more important than completing
an assignment on time, my head and my gut don't agree on these issues.­

I've temporarily put my goal of learning to webcast on both a Mac and a PC on hold.
I haven't by any means given up; instead, I've regrouped in order to focus more on
the task at hand (understanding and applying the logic of configuring settings).
To that end, once I feel confident with something as basically simple as Nicecast,
I'll move on to Audio Hijack Pro, and, after that, I'll take a deep breath and try to
make sense of the recording process with VAC ­and my PC.




I am using ecamm's call recorder for getting both sides of a Skype call. Works well. Records near site and far site audio on two different channels.

Hi, Jason.

Actually, I have Call Recorder and have been satisfied with the output
when I use it, but I've been told that it isn't suitable for streamed audio.
I just took that caveat on face value—and didn't try to see whether
or not it was really true.

Thanks for the heads up: I'll play around with it tomorrow and see
for myself.

Best wishes—
