Lesson Tasks: Record a Test Call

The task for this lesson is simple – set up the software and record a test call. 

Here are the steps:

  1. If you’re not already a member, sign up with Skype
  2. Choose your recording software: For PC > Pamela Call Recorder, and for Mac > ecamm Call Recorder
    You can try both out with a limited free trial which will do just fine for this test call. 
  3. Call the Skype Call Testing Service – it should be in your contact list by default.
  4. Record that test call using your software of choice.
  5. Listen back to the recording to confirm everything worked just fine.

That’s everything – you’ve now recorded your first call!

Once you’ve confirmed that worked as expected you can start to experiment with real calls. Arrange some interviews, and try it out. You’ll be surprised at how easy it turns out to be to capture podcast-ready content.
