    Mixing for Podcasting

    Sign in to disable this ad
    We do a live podcasting show.

    Question about subgroups on using them for podcasting. I have a host and a producer with mics in to two different tracks. Also, have two computers into the mixer that are using Skype. I have a mixer that allows 2 subgroups with separate outputs.

    Question is could producer take a call on Skype on one of the computers by connecting her track with 2nd computer track through a subgroup, talk to the guest on Skype (off air) away from main output. Then when the guest is ready change it so the 2nd computer skype guest can be brought into the main mix? Sorry if it is so confusing.

    Heh. That is pretty confusing.

    It'd be easy enough to take the line out from the Skype computer and patch it into spare channels on your mixer.
    Presumably you can have your monitoring mix different from the main output, so just make sure the Skype receive is coming to your headphones for off-air chat, and pull the fader up for on-air chat.

    For the the Skype user to hear you, the easiest solution is probably just to plug a second cheap mic into the Skype computer purely for that purpose.
    Yeah, that means you're talking into two mics but it's easier that the routing/patching alternative.

    Does that make sense?

    Or you could not check it out and use your existing equipment, which is totally capable of doing the job.

    He was spamming his website, by the looks of it.
    I removed the link from your quote. Hope you don't mind.
