Skype + Callnote + Evernote 09/02/12
Record Skype calls with Callnote and post the audio file to Evernote.
It took me quite a while to find a cheap and reliable way to record my Skype audio interviews. Granted, this is something that might not at first seem beneficial to video editors who don’t also happen to be bloggers.
The use cases I see for a workflow like this would be when you need to record:
- a virtual meeting with your client, producer or creative team
- a scratch audio session with your voice over artist
- a support call for documentation purposes
Download and install the app Callnote.
Launch Callnote. Click on the OPTIONS tab.
The settings are pretty intuitive but I recommend having the second and fourth recording options checked. You should let people know they’re being recorded. You should also be prompted before you send your file to Evernote. More on that next.
On the Evernote Settings page you are able to set which folder you want to send the audio file to.
Your call will be saved to your computer and be sent to the Evernote folder you specified earlier.
That’s pretty much it. (NOTE: If you are not able to record your call with Callnote, you may have to make sure that Skype has authorized it to run. To do that, in Skype go to: SKYPE > Manage API Clients. Make sure Skype4Java is Allowed to use Skype.)
