Hi, hope you can help me.
I have Windows 10 and Adobe Audition 1.5.
I have recently bought a Blue Yeti USB microphone in order to use Adobe Audition to record podcasts, where I have a guest via Zoom/Skype. I have tried it out and think there is something not quite right with my Windows/Audition settings.
My headphones are plugged into my USB Yeti mic and I can hear my guest on Zoom in my headphones. However when I try to record the conversation in Audition it’s only recording me.
In Windows, under Sound, Playback and Recording, Yet1 is selected.

What do the settings need to be for Audition to record me and someone via Zoom/Skype?
I'm afraid that this is way more complicated than you'd hoped. In Windows, you can only record from a single source, and to get around this limitation you need something like Virtual Audio Cable - which is a right pain to set up, but can create internal paths where the OS says you can't. But internally in your machine, this is what you have to achieve. Multichannel recording in Audition is perfectly possible, but only from external sources, and even then only possible if you use ASIO drivers and have an appropriate sound device.
A much easier option is to use an app like Sound Tap from NCH Software (other apps are also available - I am a satisfied customer, and no more than that) which will let you record the incoming stream, and also your mic. If you want something a little more flexible, they also have VRS, which may be more appropriate. But in essence, these apps sort out all the internal routing that VAC makes so difficult, and just lets you get on with recording.
Many thanks Steve, I really appreciate your advice and will get Sound Trap.
as Steve said its more a matter of the Setup in general. you also can try other Streaming Recorder Software or some Online Tools like Streamyard or Riverside to record the separate Audio Tracks and mix them together in Audition. Hope that helps.
