Re: [podcasters] Mixing Without a Mixer
- I do the exact same type of broadcast too. I also have Windows 7x64, i have a usb M64 producer mic. All I do is set up the stereo mix (what u hear setting) and use that has my mic in Skype. No echo, guest or co host hears everything. Also run through sam the same way because i am live.

Subject: [podcasters] Mixing Without a Mixer
I just started a podcast and have 3 shows under my belt. I use a Blue Snowball USB mic for my voice. My co-host and I use Skype and record the stream to produce the audio.
I have an intro I play and I insert audio clips from a soundboard at appropriate times during the show.
I have software that allows me to simultaneously record the microphone stream and the speaker output. This allows me to capture both voices and the soundboard but my co-host doesn't hear the soundboard output.
To overcome this, I use a laptop to play the intro and soundboard and have it as a third "caller" in Skype. This way, it gets recorded and both my co-host and I can hear it.
Short of purchasing a mixer (and a non-USB mic) does anyone know of a way to get the soundboard output to be transmitted via Skype without having to use a separate computer to do it? The method I'm using really screws with the audio levels.
I guess I'm really looking for a software mixer or patch panel of some sort.
p.s. Both of my computers are running Windows 7 Ultimate x64
