I just bought this for me and my buddies to try to expand our weekly podcast (which until now was 2 or 3 people on a couch with 1 microphone). I've been messing around with it, changing different settings. Its a very nice device. I've only found a few kinks with it.
When I plug the device in, I lose my sound output in chrome/audacity. I'm running on Vista, so i'm not sure if perhaps its some weird driver issue. Because when I take the cable out, it works fine again. The even odder thing is that iTunes can still play fine when it is plugged in.
The other issue I have is Skype. I'm trying to find a way to record decent voice quality through a Skype call as well as alongside the microphones. My only solution I can think of is using my second laptop to receive the call, and use the microphone jack with an adapter to plug into the mixer. Haven't had a chance to test it out, but I was wondering if anyone had an idea on how to do it on just one computer (as this would make any kind of mobile set up easier).
So any advice given will be appreciated, and I can try to provide more information if it is needed to make a judgement call. Thanks in advance!
