I'm interested in making a new podcast/audio interview series for the web. What's the best way to integrate quality phone interview audio into my series, either using my existing podcasting equipment or with new equipment?
I'm interested in making a new podcast/audio interview series for the web. The interviews would be exclusively conducted over the phone, either via Skype to Landline, or Landline to Landline. I have a bunch of audio equipment in storage from my old podcasting days, and I'd like to figure out the best way to integrate quality phone interview audio into these recordings.
I currently have an M-Audio MobilePre USB
mixer along with an AudioTechnica AT2020 condenser microphone that plugs into the M-Audio device with an XLR cable. However, I am open to purchasing a new piece of hardware for phone interviews if the price isn't too excessive. On the software side, I use Adobe Audition.
I know of this
related question from 2008, but it's nearly 5 years old and doesn't address my exact situation.
I have used Skype call recording programs with a USB headset for other purposes in the past, but always found the quality lacking. Also, I'd like to be able to use my condenser mic on my end for optimum and consistent sound quality.
So, what are my options for broadcast (or near-broadcast) quality recording of telephone interviews?
