I again used Nicecast and Audio Hijack Pro (both Mac apps),
plus the Mac version of Audacity, and did a lot more editing in
this one.

Audacity settings   - stereo mix, note volume of micro

 

Volume settings - micro as high as possible (Too high?)

Jeff asked me to post screenshots of my basic Audacity settings. Apologies for the naff images. If I knew how to do them better - getting rid of background for example - I would.

Mmm. Looks like I've got to upload screenshots to my server before they can be downloaded and inserted here. Tell me if I am wrong about that....What else is possible....OK, I'll give a link....Something tells me it cannot be this complicated..... Next post will contain the images.
