but I'm not going to argue with the Jedi Master!
Since that day that Soundtrap "failed" us (Soundtrap is a great program, it simply wasn't right for what we were trying to do; the music for our podcast was created in Soundtrap and it's great for a lot of other things), Google Hangouts and Camtasia have been our method of recording madness. Ben and I and our guest will arrange our time to meet, join the Hangout link and I record the session through Camtasia, making any edits and adding in our music before exporting the audio. When we were using Soundtrap, it was a free program, and my license of Camtasia was also free, but I was given the license. If you want to buy Camtasia, it is $249 for a license, plus an extra $49 to guarantee the next release. However, an educator can buy it for $169 plus $42.25 for the next release. You aren't required to buy the release, but it is nice when TechSmith releases new updates. While the price may seem a bit steep, I cannot say enough good things about the things you can do with Camtasia and the ease of use. While I don't record a lot of videos, it does a fantastic job of video creation (I created my Google Certified Trainer video in Camtasia).

- Stereo: records sounds from the front and the sides
- Cardioid: records sounds from the front of the microphone only (this is the setting that I use when recording on my own)
- Omnidirectional: records sounds from all directions (great for recording with multiple people around a table)
- Bidirectional: records sounds from the front and the back of the microphone (great for one-on-one speaking with another person sitting across from you)
