[QUOTE=ViciousXUSMC;2594000]Just to add to this topic. Since you had identical mics the y-cable worked for you.
However had it been different mics it may not have worked so well. If that was the case your solution would have been to add a sound card to the computer. For a laptop they have cheap external usb sound cards.
Now you would have a 2nd mic input that can be configured separately as well for gain/volume etc.
The new problem you would probably run into though is that windows would only want you to have one recording device set as the default at a time.
You would get around this by running 2 recording programs at the same time and manually choosing the input device for the program thus avoiding using the windows default.
The big advantage here is you would end up with one recording of one mic to its own file offering you the ability to later on edit each persons mic separately. So if one person was say a really quiet talker and the other person louder you can easily boost the volume of the quiet person and then combine the two files together into one final file.
You may also be able to just enable “listen to this device” on both sound adapters in the control panel and record them at the same time with only one program but I have not actually tested this.[/QUOTE]
Thanks for that info, was looking for something like that for a while. I always use the Y-cable and had both recordings on one track. I will try this =)
