I need clarification about recording a call from Skype, especially about the settings. Am I able to record my guest's voice in Multitrack on the second track while mine is on the first track? How do I set the input for the second track? How do I set the Audio Hardware settings? Do I need to change the Input/Output settings on the MacBook Pro in the control panel? I have my MacBook Pro connected to a Mackie FX8v2. I have a splitter cable in channel 5/6 and connected to the MacBook Pro. The red plug is in Line in 5 (L) port and the black plug is in the Line in 6 (R) port. I am basing the setup on a YouTube video by Shannon Hernandez, called, 'How to Record Skype Calls for Podcast with Adobe Audition.' Thanks!

We're going to have a little difficulty with this, as most of us here use PCs, not Macs, and I certainly don't know how it might be different. Also, many people have found that setting up Audition to record Skype calls, whilst possible, isn't exactly an ideal way to do it, especially if you want each side of the conversation kept separate.

Certainly for PCs, and I expect for Macs too, there are stand-alone recording apps that can achieve this. But with Audition as the recording software, you have to either use an external mixer, or set up some form of internal routing (on PCs we have Virtual Audio Cable), and this is definitely a bit more of a pain to do. There are some Mac possibilities, I believe - have a look here: https://alternativeto.net/software/virtual-audio-cable/?platform=mac

What I've found that absolutely works best with Skype interviews though is, if you can, getting the person at the other end to make a higher-quality recording of what they're saying and send you that in a file - then all you have to do is replace their lower-quality downstream audio feed with the appropriate parts from it, and it can almost sound as though you're in the room with them.

How is it done with Windows users?  The general question I have is how do I use Audition to record any service where I interview others remotely (i.e., Skype, Zoom, Soundtrack, Restream, Riverside.fm, etc.)? Can this be done through multitrack? If so, how? If not, what is the workaround?
