   SUBJECT :  Inline Patch (was Re: USB Turntable and Audacity software - phone interviews)

Hi Susan,

Sorry for the delay, the engineer that lent me the box was away last week, the outfit that provides it is called JK Audio and this is their website: http://www.jkaudio.com

and this is the box (called an inline patch) that I've used:  http://www.jkaudio.com/inline-patch.htm 

Looks like they've got a few reasonably priced items that might come in handy around a radio station ...

I used the inline patch for a phone interview with Michael Blake in NYC, captured to audacity, edited the wave file, split into tracks and burned to a cd which allowed me to transcribe it (http://vancouverjazz.com/inview/blake.shtml) and play it on the air interspersed with the music that we were discussing.

Hope that helps, thanks ... N

Hello  Nou- 

Wow -  that sounds like just what I need - 
Can you please post or send  the specs to obtain that box?!
Although one would still hear the "phone" sound vs.  an ISDN clean connection, at least it's better than mic-ing a speaker phone (the station's current method for pre-recording a phone interview....).  

Thanks very much -

I've also used it to do phone interviews, the station has a box that can be
inserted 'inline' into a phone which separates incoming and outgoing into
separate channels (for balance adjustment) and provides them in a
two-channel/stereo digital output.  That plugs into a soundcard and with
Audacity doing the capture, you can have a nice conversation and edit it up
into an interview quite easily.  Very handy .. N
