    Default Multiple tracks, Skype, and other such frivolities.

    At some point this summer I intend on recording a podcast/radio show with partner in grime Jody Neil Ruth. It's going to be new music and lots of idle banter.

    I would like to be able to:

    • Play Tunes
    • Have Jody participate via Skype (or similar)
    • Potentially have other guests join via Skype or similar
    • Do live mixes
    • Record Everything internally onto my laptop's hard disk.


    I have random kit to accomplish this:

    • Traktor S4
    • TSP 2
    • Ableton Live
    • Multiple PCs (if needed)
    • Multiple USB Headsets/Mics
    • A crappy 3 channel Numark Mixer


    I will worry about live broadcasting at a later date but would take any recommendations on that now.

    So, whats the simplest, fool proof way to set this up?

    Sounds like a great idea. I'm sure with you and Jody doing this I'll need some adult diapers. That way I won't make a mess when I piss myself laughing. Both of you are funny as hell. I can't wait!

    Would be potentially better to have Jody participate via something like Ventrillo which has a far lower impact on your connection as well as CPU, RAM, etc.

    I'd worry about bandwidth with streaming and Skype. Doing it as a pre record as live would be easier but not as fun

    Any suggestions on managing the various channels?
