Master Windows Volume Control

Do you need a master administration tool for Windows volume control?

ZVolume Home 2006 is a nice, powerful replacement to the standard Windows volume and mute control (freeware).

It can be vastly customized, including changing its look using skins. It supports hotkeys and command-line parameters as well as all other functions the standard Windows volume control supports.

Introduction by Cyndi Danner-Kuhn

Well week one and already behind.  Not a good start needless to say. Anyway, I am using a MacBook Pro and thought GargageBand would be best bet, but decided to try Audacity since that is what  most of my own students will attempt to use.  I am really kooking forward to suggestions for improvement.

Recording Skype call (two sides)

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.

Mac Settings for recording telephony with Audio Hijack Pro

So, I had trouble following the settings for recording two sides of a telephony call (skype), so once I found settings that worked, I figured I'd post them here for anyone else who might need them.

Audio Hijack settings : Source type: Skype (it'll restart skype if you have it open)

None of this covers the audio specs - I'll be doing editing in Audacity to get those set correctly.
