My drummer buddy moved down south, and we both have Skype. We tried setting up a jam session tonight, and it _almost_ worked perfectly. I could hear his kit just fine, and I used the USB out on my Pod HD for the mic on my end, and he could hear it perfectly.
The problem is, as soon as i start playing, Skype (or my mac?) tries to be helpful, and mutes his end. It's the same on his side (Windows) but the threshold doesn't seem nearly as high. I can hit one note on my side and it immediately shuts him off.
How do I disable this "feature"? I tried this:
Disable Skype's auto-changing of microphone volume - Mac OS X Hints
But it didn't work.
