Skype multiple microphones - comprehensive handbook
Can Skype use two microphones?
You can only use one microphone device using Skype, you will need to change it on the Skype settings on the app before you can use the other audio devices.
- Hey Podcaster, Pat here, with an answer to a very specific question that many of you had at the Student Center, thank you all for that and that means you can have a personal interview.
For example, shall we say with a guest or maybe a co-host with a computer and two of your microphones connected via USB? These are two ATR2100 microphones. And I'm happy to tell you the answer is yes. And without having to use one of those expensive portable recorders, so, 'I'll show you how.
The first thing you need to do is make sure the two microphones are correct? And I'm using two ATR2100s. And you need to make sure you have a cord long enough for the distance you need. The cable that comes with the ATR is usually long enough, don't use a short one like this one.
This is the only other one I could find though, so I'll plug it in for now. And speaking of hooking up, you need two free USB ports in your computer for this to work because you have two microphones right ? But if you only have one free USB port then you can use one of those devices which is a USB hub, this one needs to be plugged into your computer and then it actually has slots for four different devices you could may have up to four different microphones if you wanted to do it that way too. I'm just going to show you how to do it with one of these things, or excuse me, two microphones.
Actually, I'm going to put this in so we can use this. And then I'm going to connect these two microphones, there is one microphone, there are two microphones, you can see that they are blue now. Now the blue is no longer necessarily mean they are right? You still need to have them turned on.
And then I'll put them aside for now. Now that's not as portable as this solution here using your iRig Mic Lavs. ZweiT Small microphones that connect to each other are in here, which then connect to your mobile device.
So you can even record with your phone on the go and that's great when you might be doing a one-off interview at an event or something and don't have enough space to pack all that stuff and you won't be bringing your computer with you. But if you do this more often, a computer and two connecting microphones via USB will work. But not only is it going to work the first time, there is one thing you need to do in your computer to make this all work and I am now going to show you how to do it.
So right now we're on a Mac and we're going to the Applications folder and scrolling all the way down to Utilities. This is a little trick, the thing you have to do to let the computer know that you have something that has two microphones plugged into it, we're essentially going to create a new device that is a combination of both. And like I said, we go to Applications, we go to Utilities, and then we go to Audio MIDI Setup.
So we click on that. And what we have to do is create an aggregate device. To do that, we just have to click the plus symbol d.
Go Own Here. Create Aggregate Device and now let's select the two USB microphones connected to our computer. Let's actually rename this to My Two Mics.
And then we can get started. Now we have to domgo a few other things to the settings, the Apple icon, system settings. Sound and then you can see how the My Two Mics are set up there, and if i want to tap the mics, you can see them move there, hear it but you can see the sound going into this Microphones works, that's good.
That’s the first sign. Now we're going to open GarageBand. Now don't worry because if you click on it you won't see any input devices because we haven't even selected those yet, but for now I just hit Create and go to GarageBand and Preferences.
Hit Audio MIDI, and then you want the input device to be My Two Mics The name we gave that particular device, My Two Mics. Everything should be ready now. I press x and now when I click on new track I can type in a lot more.
So input one, we have to test these, that's the thing we have to do, we have to test them to make sure they are connected to the right one. So I click Create and go to Track, Track Header and then Show Record Enable Button. This is really important now because that will make sure we know that this is actually one that is set to record so you can see how it is moving now.
If I tap this now, is it this or is it this? Check, check, check, check, check, check. Okay so the one I had without a foam microphone, a foam ball is just audio, this one is here. So I'll just, let's see, I'm going to rename this one without foam you can rename them whatever you want different colored foam balls.
I'm going to delete this track by hitting command and then pressing the backspace key. And now I'm going to make a new one, that as a number three is entered, i believe three will be the next one, and to find out we just test it. So we have to activate it now.
So here is the non-foam device, as you can see it's moving on top. And then here is the foam device, now that's for this one, so let me quickly rename this. With foam, i.e. yellow or blue or red, you can buy different types of foam balls there.
And then when we come across records with both armed, that's the other thing, make sure both are activated that way. And to enable this setting I don't know why it's not enabled to begin with, but if you go to Track, Track Header, Show Record Enable Button, do this like this. So when I record.
So I'm going to record with the foam first and then record without the foam and I'll kind of point it far away before I grab it so it doesn't pick up that much sound. It picks up a little bit of sound. That's one thing you'll notice when you're in the same room with someone with these mics.
Make sure he holds it close to his mouth and you have a stand next to you, or a couple is standing next to you so you don't have to worry. But the other microphone picks up the other person, but if they are combined with each other it's fine because they will overlap and it will cancel each other out. So let's record with the foam first and then I'll go to the other.
Hey, this is Pat, I'm recording with the foam mic, with the ATR2100, and I'm about to grab one without the foam, Hey guys, Pat here, and it might pop a little because there is no foam ball here But that shows you that you can actually connect both microphones to the same computer by using a real USB splitter in this case and you can actually have them in separate lanes. So in case one is louder or you need to fix one, you can change it and all is well and good ready go, okay I'll hit stop and all in all good and ready to go, I mean you can turn the volume down A trick I like to do in GarageBand To make it sound neat and clean, I like going to Voice and Narration Vocal, and that adds a bunch of filters and a lot of things to that particular track, you have to do for both of them if you want. And that'll get rid of a lot of background noise too.
And now let's hit play and see how that sounds. I'm recording with the foam mic, with the ATR2100 and I'm about to do that without it grab foam. Hey guys, pat here, and it might pop a bit because there isn't a foam ball here, but that shows you that you can actually plug both mics into the same computer by, in that case, you're us e.And there we go, so that's the setup, it's not too much stuff.
It's basically all I have. And keep rocking, thank you guys, I appreciate all the questions, I appreciate all the love. Thank you for supporting Power-Up Podcasting.
Thank you for being here, thank you for being great, thank you for taking action, thank you for your testimonials. You rock, keep asking your questions, I'm here for you, ok guys, take care, bye .
Can you use two microphones one computer?
Select both your USB mics as your left and right channels. On track one and two, use the input drop-down menus titled Default Stereo Input to select both your USB mics. Hit the R on both tracks to arm each one to record. And when you hit record, that's you up and running with two USB mics at the same time.
- Hello and welcome back.
In this article, I'm going to look at how you can record with two different USB microphones at the same time on a Windows PC. I will look at two different approaches. how to set it up so that you can mix the two microphones together on one track in software like Audacity, and then how to record each microphone on separate tracks at the same time in a digital audio workstation like Reaper.
Now I regularly post articles on 'Home Recording Made Easy', if that sounds like something you're interested in then subscribe to the channel. And if you like the article give it a thumbs up, it really helps. If you have any comments or questions, post them below.
I would love to read it and it will help me decide what type of content to produce next to help you out. So let's go ahead and record these two microphones at the same time. We're going to start recording from two USB microphones in Audacity at the same time, and as I said earlier this needs to be combined the two microphones together on one track.
The first thing you'll do is get a copy of VoiceMeeter and I'll include a link to it below. This is excellent software for this type of activity. And you will see when you get here that there is a basic version of VoiceMeeter which I am going to demonstrate to you.
If you've used this and want to combine more imports and do more then you have Banana and Potato which you can do a lot more with, but for this case we just want to combine two mics so this standard mic will do, you just go Go to the website and download it. And you will see that it is a donation So if you think it’s good then you should donate to them because that’s great. So you've installed your VoiceMeter, now we have to clean up Windows a little.
So let's access the Control Panel, the quickest way to access it is to type the word Control Panel in search. There are other ways to access it through apps in Control Panel, if you're looking at it in Category view you need to go to Hardware and Sound and then under Sound, manage audio devices. Now we can see all of the microphones that we have installed and all of the playback devices I start with the recording devices and you will see that I have two USB microphones plugged into my computer and you can see both of them are recording sound as I speak .
So I have a ShureMV5 and I have an AT2020USB +. So these are the two microphones that I want to combine. Now before using VoiceMeter I would suggest that you click on each microphone and check its properties level is in this panel here because when you first install a USB microphone it can actually be very quiet, and then ask why it's not working so come here to adjust the levels the 'advanced' tab here, check the sample rate because i think everything has to be right.
So at the moment I'm on the AT2020. So when I go to the 'Advanced' tab I have set it to record on 16 bit 44, 100 Hertz. So CD quality, my Audio-Technica is a 16-bit device, I'm sticking to 16-bit.
My other microphone is actually a 24-bit device, but I'm going to bring them all together because I think this is the best. So that's fine, let's go to the shure and do the same. Look at the properties, check the levels.
I'm just going to do this before I need to get them right. And then again under the Advanced tab you will see that I set it up CD quality to make them match. Now the same with playback, you can do the same thing.
You can check it's advanced tab and check the playback too. So I've already set this up, what I'll do is turn this off for now and just show you VoiceMeeter that I'm already running, here is what the panel looks like. Now I've already selected my two microphones.
VoiceMeeter lets you choose two different microphones, and this virtual import is indeed all the computer sounds you have, so if you want a backing track to play on Spotify or YouTube or any other playback, you can record it at the same time. We'll look at this in a minute, but you will, see what I did here. You click here and you can choose which microphone is input.
Now I've selected the WDM drivers, they worked much better than the MME drivers. They were just faster, so when you're listening to the headset, there's a lot less lag. So I chose the WDM, you experiment to see which one works best for you.
So the first microphone is my ShureMV5, and you can see it picks up my sound just fine while I speak, and then the second is my AT2020USB +. Now not only can you have two different inputs, two different hardware inputs, but also two different hardware outputs, and you will see that I set up A1 as the headphone output on my Shure. and A2 as headphone output on my AT2020USB +.
Now these two USB mics have headphone jacks so you could have a scenario where you have two people each using a different USB mic and each with their headphones individually plugged into their respective mic and what they're hearing , depends on what you clicked here The only sound I hear through my headphones that I happened to plug into my Audio Technica is the sound of my Audio Technica microphone. I actually turned Shure off, but if I press A there I can now hear both microphones, or I could turn off the Audio Technica and only hear the MV5. So everything you clicked on A will be heard through both exits here.
If someone had headphones plugged into the Shure they would be I can hear the same thing as I can, but since I don't want to hear both microphones, I turned that off. So A is all about routing the hardware, and you also have B, and B is roughly rooting the virtual outlet. And you will see that B here picks up the combined signals from whatever goes in there headphones are sent to that virtual output and that is the routing that is recorded in Audacity.
And if I also played background music, you would see the levels here for B and also for A, so I listened through the headphones and I heard it when I made the recording. Now leave VoiceMeeter open and running in the background. I've found that if you shut it down here, it doesn't work from within Audacity, and I've spent a lot of time scratching my head wondering why sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't, just run the utility , it works fine.
I'll minimize that, go back to my Control Panel, which is there since I opened it, go back to my audio devices, and this is where I'll make sure I have VoiceMeeter as the default device for both playback and recording have set. Okay, to do that just select it and since it's already default it's grayed out but if it's not the def ault device you'd click here to set default. That’s all right.
So I have the setup, I can shut it down, and now I'm going to open Audacity. What you are going to do is you are going to combine the two microphones on one track, make sure you have VoiceMeeter selected as the input. I'm going to leave it in stereo so I'll do a stereo recording, you can toggle it to whatever you want, and then I selected the output here too, VoiceMeeteras also selected the output, Okay, now you can go to the WDS drivers here, same thing , just change it.
Okay. So because I selected that. Okay.
So make sure you I also have WDS here, Windows Direct Sound. So now we can start. All you have to do is start recording and you will immediately see the levels being recorded.
If I tap on my Shure mic it's picked up, tap my Audio Technica mic, yes, that's picked up, so my two microphones are picked up at the same time and mixed into one track here. When I go back to VoiceMeeter, I do still got running, you can see the microphones bounce back well. Now when I play a track on Spotify, I just start playing whatever is there.
Okay, and minimize that. You can now see that I'm getting some input from Spotify too. Okay.
And if I just turn the microphone volume down here, which I can do, you'll see Audacity keep recording, picking it up actually the track I was playing on Spotify. I could adjust the level here. and have some kind of quiet background chat or I could boot it up or whatever.
So, in addition to being a great utility for combining two different audio devices, VoiceMeeter is fantastic if you want to record the audio from YouTube, Spotify, any other music app that you play, or any sound app that you have also want to record the sound of it. So, I'm going to stop playing, and now I'm going to go and stop that. Okay.
So it is you record two microphones and your background audio if you want in Audacity on the same track. Now I want to go over one more thing point out, now we've looked at the basics, is that inside ...
let's move these up a little so you can see that they actually are still, you can double click on these and reset them to the default level. I won't go into that in detail here, but since you're recording a mix of two microphones, you may want to play with these controls here. This allows you to do a little EQ and add a little bit of echo etc and brightness to the connected mics.
And that's going to happen here, and you can change the type of frequency and depth and so on by moving those squares for each microphone. You might want to experiment with it. The other thing is that you can do a little bit of noise reduction with this audibility slider if you want to find one that will improve the audio quality of your microphone.
I won't go into too much detail here, but as you can see this is just a fantastic little utility if you're recording two USB mics on Audacity at the same time. If I want to record from two USB microphones but on separate tracks I can do that, but the process is slightly different to work in any ASIO software like Reaper that I will be demonstrating with. You can use it in Ableton, Pro Tools, Adobe Audition, and any software that is ASIO-enabled.
You have to go first. navigate to ASIOforall.org, download the ASIOforall drivers, and restart your computer.
This is a utility. I recommend that you install it anyway, as it allows you to operate your microphone very efficiently within the ASIO software. You are ready to open our software.
And in that case, I'll be using Reaper, like I said earlier. So if I go to options and settings I can examine the device I'm going to be using at the moment I have my input and output device set to one of my USB microphones. But what I can do here is switch to ASIOM can see ASIO for everyone here.
I have the drop down list. I need to tick this box here to enable inputs. And when I look in the ASIO configuration you will see for pinning both of my USB microphones here to Audio Technica and Shure, they're all pinned.
So you can pin or detach devices here. These are the ones I want. OK.
Hold that, and then I'll make the first device I want from here starting with the Audio Technica input one and the last device is the Shure MV5 input two. OK. So it's really important that this first and last one includes your microphones.
Now you can choose the output so that it has all of the output range that you can hear through both speakers - I'll just stick with the one I plugged my headphones into. Okay, once I've got everything set up I can just double click here to create a few tracks, if I'm right click and look at the track manager, I can name the tracks, something reasonable like Audio Technica and Shure. If I close that, you'll see there is a name here that makes sense.
I could also choose both and set them to random colors so it's very clear what I am doing. OK. Now if I'm this one to record, I can now choose what my input is this track, and I'll do stereo and I'll go for AT2020.
So I'm going to do a stereo recording through the AT2020 microphone. Now you can see that I could choose to record through both microphones at the same time by selecting this second option, or I could record through the Shure. So this is going to be the Audio Technica mic, do the same thing here for recording and choose the input here, but this time I'm going to choose the Shure.
So I have these two mics set up now and you can see them Pick up my voice just fine, you are ready to go. So now all I have to do is start recording, and I'll record both microphones on separate tracks. If I just tap on Audio Technica, I only get a signal on that microphone.
Now if I just tap Shure, I try gently, so (laughs) because they're next to each other, it picks it up, but that's the Shure mic that picks up the strongest signal. Okay, I'll just try again. I'll move it out of the other mic's way, that's better.
So this is the Shure that just records. OK. But because I move both of the mics, it picks up all sorts of things on your two USB mics on Windows, on separate tracks.
Well, I hope you found this helpful. If you want a little more info I have a full article with one Step-by-step instructions on how to set up the microphones are written on and record on your Windows PC.

How do I connect multiple microphones?
More than Four Microphones into one 3.5mm Jack Input or USB Port. If you need to connect more than four microphones to one USB input, the most cost-effective solution is likely to be a USB mixer with as many inputs as you need to support the number of mics you want to use.
- So if you invest in your article podcast setup, you don't have to break the bank when it comes to the article aspect of things.
Investing a little more in audio than article, I encourage clients recording this interview setup with four different microphones. And to record articles, we use Canon G7 X Mark IIIs, a point-and-shoot camera that is super easy to use. So let's break it down. (chilled music) Hey what's up? It's Omar El-Takrori from Think Media who will help you with the best tips and tools to build your influence with online articles.
And on this channel we do tech reviews, camera setups like this one. So if you're new here, consider subscribing to me. I usually shoot this podcast with just one camera.
I use my Sony A7 III with the 24-70G master lens. It's almost a $ 5000 setup. And that's why they want to do a special episode where they interview friends of theirs and so with that said, I wanted them to actually watch and film a conversation y podcasts can be recorded that way, but we will do the AVL or Go over the sound, picture, and lighting of this setup we're going to be recording.
So let's get it. So starting with audio, let's use the Shure SM7B microphones. You know, the owners invested in two extra mics so we could have four in total.
Because they expect to do a little more interviews in the coming year. And that's why they just want to be prepared for it. And so when you buy this microphone, you definitely want to buy a microphone stand, we use the Samson desktop microphone stand, I love this microphone stand because it's not too high, so you can sit on a regular chair and the microphone is right there where you need it, you know a lot of people tend to do this and when trying to figure out the distance between the microphones. (chuckles) But when you buy this mic, you definitely want to invest in Cloudlifters.
Or there are different types of microphone activators on the market. However, this one has just been proven and is the one that a lot of people recognize. And again, I really stress that if you are investing in the audio aspect of your podcast to get the most of your budget, because you don't get audio that often need to update like you might with article, you can buy everything you need at once and never really have to think about any costs you will incur later.
Essentially, you're going to buy an XLR cable for input that comes in from the microphone, and then you go into a recorder. Then we use a Zoom H6 cell phone recorder to record the sound. That was great, but that too was something they bought in advance.
It was like the first time they knew their podcast that we might be adding more microphones to the setup. And again, a move that has already paid off as we simply had to buy more XLRs to upgrade to two additional mics, and you can get started right away with four people instead of having to buy another recorder. Because they produce these with only two entrances.
The few things I really love about this device, however, is number one, the analog use of this dial. It's just super easy to dial in audio. Another reason I love this so much is the phantom power it gives off.
And when we talk about power, it's able to plug in USB for continuous power because when you have phantom power on it can use up double A batteries like crazy. But just plug this into an outlet and you don't have to worry about battery power which is a great feature this particular recorder has. And then the next thing is just a compressor limiter.
This means that it automatically adjusts levels in real time while people are talking then there could be a high point when everyone is laughing. Which scares a person like me because that's when all these climaxes happen. But the zoom will do its best job of keeping those levels down kind of when it starts to get high, so it's a very useful recorder to check out and be sure to check out the View Zoom H6 cell phone recorder.
Well, let's talk about article. So in this particular setup I wanted to use a very light setup just because I don't. I don't have three Sony A7 IIIs lying around.
But we at Think Media have a couple of G7 Xs lying around. By a few I mean three. So I wanted to break down why this camera is not a bad idea to use on your article podcast.
So the first reason is that you are not using the audio from the camera to publish your article podcast. You use the audio that is recorded on your Zoom and later in the post you will sync it. I actually have a article.
How do I edit my article podcast. If you want to check this out, be sure to check out the YouTube link in the description. And this article will help you so much.
I know because I am proud of it. But still, what's so cool about the G7 X Mark III records in 4K. However, I wouldn't record in 4K for your podcast, why? Because with the G7 X Mark III there is a record limit of five minutes.
However, the image quality of the Mark III is very, very good. And so it's just the idea of packing my three-angle podcast setup in a bag like this one and then showing it up is super cute. One cool thing about the G7 X Mark III is definitely its ability to have sustained performance.
And so you can include a USB-C adapter to power your G7 X Mark III without using the battery inside. And that's super helpful when you know you're going to have three angles and you know you don't want to keep burning batteries through your shots. So as not to have to think about something like that.
I often find it, when I just forgot to put my battery on a charger overnight, that you know I start the day with not 100% battery and so things like this can definitely help with this problem. And Sean actually made a article about the best accessories for the G7 X. Be sure to check out this article for a link to it in the map and in the description below.
Ho However, I found something unfortunate about the G7 X Mark II and that was one of the angles I used and it was that it was does not overshoot a record limit of 4 GB. So what does that mean? In essence, what it means is that you can't really record the 13-16 minute mark with this camera, which is very unfortunate and sad to find out after I hit 'record' on this podcast that this is the one Case is. However, you know when you pick up three angles when you want it to be invested? the G7 X Mark II for a podcast setup, or you can go with an older Sony RX100 model, the point is that point-and-shoot cameras could work perfectly for article podcasts.
Why? Because if you're using a three camera setup and say you hit record when you know all three cameras are starting your podcast. If the podcast continues and the time runs out, you can stop recording, go over here, stop recording, press record while this is cording again and then you can go here and stop recording while recording is in progress. And then in the post you just don't cut back to that angle that you set when you turn off the recording.
All in all, I found this to be a cool setup. I really enjoyed it. I like to do a bit nippier, simple setups because the more available this whole idea about recording your article podcasts becomes, the more people are going to get out and kind of do it.
I would even encourage you to use your phone. What's so cool about the phone is most of the phones and the iPhone in particular can record in 4K. If you're using a phone that even records in 1080, that's perfectly fine.
And guess what, most phones don't have a recording either, so if you have the space in your phone to record for as long as you need it is super awesome. And I'm going to be shooting a three-angle podcast with the iPhone one day just to expose everyone you know and have their article as an excuse not to post their article podcasts. I actually do have a customer who does records her podcast in 4K on her iPhone, but she invested in a good microphone.
In all honesty, you know 50% of the article is audio, but I'd even say if it's a long article you really want your audio to be dialed in, so really make sure you put more in good audio than investing in good article since you can use your phone. When it comes to article, our tripods are our tripods, right? So I wanted to break down the two different tripods that I actually own and that I can somehow confirm for. And so the first is the K&F Concept tripod.
I love this tripod. It's like made of aluminum. It's a great price.
You can do so much with it, take it higher, it has a ball head that's great. I actually put my Sony on this tripod. So this is my workhorse tripod.
I like it because it packs up small. I like it because you can do a lot of things. You can even take pictures vertically.
You know the tripod flow. It's just a great tripod. However, I don't have 10 of them, I don't know, I only have one (chuckles).
So I wanted to disassemble this other one I bought once because I was in a hurry to have a second tripod. And this is just a Manfrotto Compact Action tripod. It costs about $ 50.
I really like that. It's kind of funny that it has such a tiny pistol grip that can be used as a article head which actually helps. But again, I'd love this because it's so small so if you really just want to like you to know, pack it and set up your shop to record article podcasts.
If it's not in the same place, it's very important to think of a very nimble tripod. It also uses a cool quick release system. It's just a circular thing that you just screw onto your camera and then just snap into place.
Super cool for a very light camera. Now I wouldn't put my Sony on it trustworthy, it's kind of a light on top. I actually trust in adding bigger camera setups.
But these are just the few tripods that I use in this special shoot. So we covered audio and article, and before I really get into the lighting really quickly, I wanted to ask you the question, are you thinking about starting a podcast? If so what would you do? Let us know in the comments section below. And hey, if you get any value on this article, I want you to smash the like button, but let's get into the lighting, I use the same light everywhere.
I have three Prismatic RGB rainbow ring lights that we got from the DVEStore. We love these lights. If you ever see color on the back of our articles that we posted lately, they usually get splattered with these lights.
I use them for photography the other day shot a couple of headshots of Sean and they came out super sick. And the reason these lights are awesome is number one, it has a full range of colors. Not only can you use them for traditional cold and warm lights, but they can also hop over to the similar hue mode where you can get any color on the rainbow of these lights.
There are tons of colors you can mix and match. And it's so cool because there is an LED screen on the back that will tell you either the color you have or your Kelvin temperature, which makes it really easy to tweak your settings around constant lighting. And we just love using that lighting, like we do right now.
I'm lit by one and then we have the two back there, but I used two in this particular shoot on a normal daylight setting and then I put one on a red color to just bring a little bit of vibes. We found that if you just throw some color in the background, it really adds life to your image, especially if it's a stationary shot. Another cool thing about this light is that it could be battery operated, I mean I love using continuous energy when I can.
