    Lightbulb Using two USB Mics

    Hi guys. Since I seem to have started turmoil in another thread I will try one more time lol

    I have two USB Microphones that I would like to use but do not know a good application for them. Can someone suggest a way to use two USB mics to record my podcast. Both mo co host will be in the same room as me. I just dont want to take these mics and dump them.

    Hi Richard,

    It is possible to use 2 USB mics to record. You will want to try to put them on 2 different USB bus. IF your computer has USB plugs in the front and the back, they are typically on different buses. Also, if you have USB 3 and USB 2 they will be on different busses.

    The next question is, what are you using to record the audio? What software? I guess I should not have assumed that you were recording audio on the computer.

    it also depends on the type of Mics. I think I've heard that if you have two identical mics you might run into problems. What kind of Mics are they? If they're dual USB/XLR like the ATR2100 you could get an audio interface to connect them via XLR then that would connect via USB to your computer.

    It is possible to run two USB microphones into Audacity/ other audio recording software. What microphones are you currently using?
