Skype audio recording

March 1, 2013 | 9:12 pm

Occasionally I need to record a Skype audio conversation. To date I’ve used Call Recorder and that has worked very well but since installing Mountain Lion I’ve had some problems. So I’m thinking I could use Soundflower and Quicktime Player. Current output is via the Mac’s inbuilt speakers and the input is via a headset with microphone. I’m sure the output would be recorded but what about the input. The Mac is a late 2009 27" iMac. Any help much appreciated. Steve

You can create an Aggregate device in Audio Midi Setup and add your microphone and Soundflower’s input to it, then assign Skype’s output to Soundflower and use the aggregate device as the audio source for QT.

Don’t forget to use Soundflowerbed if you want to hear Skype’s audio while you are recording.
