Let’s see… My workflow is all Mac. Microphones are ATR2100s. We talk via Skype (at least lately), and record with Ecamm Call Recorder. I use Loopback to create composite inputs and outputs (this allows us to play audio clips through Skype). I use Audio Hijack to record audio clips from the browser (or any app, really). I also use a small app called SoundSource, which lets me hear what I’m inputting through the Mac’s audio input (oddly enough, that’s not a built-in Mac feature).

I have a first generation iPad hooked up via the audio input (your basic 3.5mm mini jack). I play those annoying morning-show sound effects using an inexpensive app called Center Stage (OSX soundboard apps are surprisingly pricey).

I always take notes while we’re recording so I can quickly go back and make any smallĀ edits that may be necessary. I split both sides of the conversation using the Ecamm Call Recorder tools that come with the app. I edit in GarageBand. Upon export I run it through the Auphonic audio processing app. This does a nice job of balancing sound without requiring too much work on my part.

Really, we should be editing with files recorded on both ends, for optimal quality. We just haven’t gotten around to setting up the recorder on John’s side – plus he’s on Windows, so there’s that added complication.

We’re always tweaking stuff, though. Everything I just wrote could be obsolete this time next month.
