After 2 years of happy podcasting it finally happened...advise required.

My Mac gave a low memory warning part way through our hour long show yesterday. We paused and double checked everything before continuing. Alas in post production today I find that half of the audio is corrupt!

My fault, I've heard the warnings often enough about backups etc. I even have a Zoom H2 sitting around. Lesson learnt, now for the question.

What is the best way to record my backup?

My current setup is a Yeti USB into the Mac, Skype for my co-host, split with SoundFlower & LineIn for channel management into GarageBand. I love this set up as it gives me separate channels for each voice. I monitor back out through the headphone jack in the mic.

Where could my voice recorder fit in this setup? Importantly, will it still allow me channel separation on the backup version?

One consideration was to scrap the software altogether and invest in the setup +Ray Ortega recommends in the post Recording Skype with no Mixer or Softwarehttp://thepodcastersstudio.com/recording-skype-with-no-mixer-or-software/#more-4236

Alternatively, I am happy to consider a more solid setup altogether as we are now over 2 years in.

I recorded this nine years ago, but it's essentially the rig I still use. At its heart, this setup is about using a digital recorder, which captures audio from a mixer; I don't use the computer to record at all. This way, I can record to both a primary and a backup mixer while leaving computer resources free for the Skype call my London-based co-host and I use (along with any guests) to connect. These days, I edit via double-ender, but still capture my co-host's track in the recording as a backup.

The toast always falls on the side of the butter and the chess board is never placed correctly. There must be a reason for this in this universe.

Yes, the iPhone 6 battery will last a whole marathon

I spent some time trying to find the answer to this. So here is an official update.

Today I ran my first marathon in 5hrs 16mins. I used a standard iPhone 6 & Runkeeper with GPS in Airplane mode.

I finished with 24% battery left and that was with audio updates every mile. I made no other settings changes.

Thanks for everyone's help last time: https://goo.gl/9pnYX2

I now have the new setup below.

Our last record didn't go too well though. We ended up with a high pitch noise on my end, and I couldn't alleviate it. The Yeti mic headphone out is going into channel 2 with a 3.5mm stereo cable to a 6.35mm stereo to mono adapter.

Even at low levels we still had the noise. I tried moving equipment around in case of interference, but no difference. Here is a short clip, any ideas welcome. http://seanclark.com/STE-001.mp3

Thanks Again

+John Valentine Interesting. Yes, I've found it strange that you don't hear much from AT about the mic... and haven't seen them pump out a new version. 

They should add a built in pop filter, create higher USB output volume, and include separate knobs for mixed headset volume and mic self-monitoring volume.

Yep, I'd pay double for that.
