How I Have Been Recording Podcasts
Thanks for the responses. I have tried the following methods of recording:
1) taping from an audio tape recorder and using Audio Recorder 2.0 software to convert to an MP3 format
2) Skype recording with audacity or callnote. Skype discontinued the software interface that enabled 3rd party software to work with Skype.
3) freeconferencecall.com using MagicJack as phone.
The phone call sounds fine in all cases. It's the recording that doesn't - my side sounds okay. The person I call sounds faint.
How can I fix it?

"...You can write the most detailed...description of an ax entering a skull, and nobody will say a word in protest. But if you write a similarly detailed description of a penis entering a vagina, you get letters from people saying they’ll never read you again. What the hell? Penises entering vaginas bring a lot more joy into the world than axes entering skulls.” --Author George R. R. Martin
- I know several Podcasters actually get all people in the to record their own "voice" on their side. That way you should have a excellent sound on both ends and you can mix each person in post instead of having the people called being Mixed in with the Audio.
The people I regularly see doing this they often have to do the "Count in" at the beginning, before they actually talk about what they're talking about. (These guys do a live show, and subsequently shows off this stuff.)
Just make sure the everyone is recoding from the good microphone, not a webcam. I'd post a link where I didn't follow my advice, but I can't find it online anymore, nor can I upload the files in question.
If that isn't an option, You could set the Recording so that your Mic is left and the Phone call is on the right. You should be able to mix the levels better that way, then combine both sides late in the Post production side.
