A first sound test was performed last evening with promising results. The primary purpose of this first sound test was to record a conversation with my co-host using Skype while learning how to balance the local microphone, Skype feed and local MP3 audio feeds. We quickly discovered that there can be a real difference in the various levels. That is, if we increase the recording levels to accomodate the local microphone and Skype feeds, we can deafen ourselves when a local audio file is played. Not only that, audible echoes occur on the remote Skype end.

Catching up with my co-host and kicking out ideas for the show was a lot of fun and we are looking forward to sharing the results with you.
