After some frustration with what I thought were setting issues, Lee B helped me out and it turns out my dual 1/8th inch plug headset wasn't going to work for this. I went to the local Radio Shack and ended up with a Logitec 250 USB headset, and things went MUCH smoother! I figured I'd post the settings here that worked, since they are a little different from Lee's screencast since she's using other software.

It was an interesting intro session for the WCA class of 2.4 this afternoon (for me, for others much earlier in the morning!). The noodling about and asking questions was a great way to get a sense of where everyone is with webcasting - and that we all have so much to learn, even those who have done this before. The changing pieces of technology and the ways in which they interact when combined will no doubt continue to make webcasting a never-ending learning process.

each of your programs that use a sound with its own individual levels for a sound card, and then launch
When you quit the selected program, the RoMac Sound
Card Management utility will return all the sound card levels back to normal. It works also for Windows Vista (freeware).
I have summarized some resources about sound card requirements on my course notes 2.3 metalist:
After assessing my existing hardware and looking at some blog entries, I noticed that this issue has not
received much attention, even though the sound card is the central workhorse in webcasting.
