Thanks to the person who recommended that I use Total Recorder, Kevin, was
it? It works like a champ, makes first rate recordings from Skype. This
is a much less expensive alternative to recording telephone interviews and
such than buying several hundred dollars worth of phone patch gear.
The balance between the input and output volumes seems to be good and the recording was first rate, I am quite pleased.
Next question, how to play music to somebody you are talking to over Skype...
