I have been recording and editing podcasts for years. I have used Skype and Pamela to record and Sony Vegas 7, 8 and 9 for most editing.
I want to do live, in person podcasting and I just purchased and installed Cubase4 and Firestudio on my Mac. My goal is to record podcasts at events with 4-8 microphones. No instruments or sound effects, just voices like a radio show.
I set everything up and plugged in two microphones. Both mics are working. I want each mic to have its own track, but that is not working out.
The signals from mic 1 and mic 2 are being recorded on both tracks at the same level. Even when I pick up mic 2 and walk out of the room, mic 2 is recorded on tracks 1 and 2. I would expect very mild track bleeding, but this is not track bleeding at all. I am thinking there is something simple I need to do to get one voice (one mic) on one track. Any help would be much appreciated.
Also, can anyone recommend a tutorial of sorts that a podcaster has published on using Cubase and Firestudio for inperson live podcasting?
Thanks in advance.
