We're offering some guitar lessons via webcam for customers. It's not your typical setup where the teacher is sitting in front of his computer and webcam at his desk. The teacher is sitting on a chair in front of a backdrop. About 5-6 feet in front of him is a TV screen sitting on top of a table, that is connected to the computer on the other side of the room so that he can see and hear the person at the other end of the call on that screen and through the TV's internal speaker. I attach the webcam to the top of the TV, and use a long USB cable to connect it to the computer. I have a mixer set up for when we record other kinds of videos. Guitar, and MP3 audio track, and mic go into the mixer, and there are monitor speakers that are sitting under the table facing up towards the teacher so he can hear his guitar, and the MP3 track when needed. The problem I'm having is that the mic on the webcam isn't doing a good job and I need to get another mic for the audio. So I need to get a mic that will pick up both his voice, as well as the sound coming out of the speakers that are on the floor. I'm currently looking at the USB microphones by Blue, the ones that offer omni directional pickup. I had a working situation by using a RODE NTG-1 mic, and using the USB out from the mixer as the mic audio source in Skype. It sounded pretty good, except for some reason, the connection would randomly just drop, meaning that sound you hear in windows when you disconnect a usb source, you'd hear that, and then the person on the other end of the call wouldn't be able to hear anything anymore. If I could solve that, it would be ideal, because then the guitar, and the MP3 track wouldn't need to be picked up by a microphone; they'd get sent directly to the computer and I'd just have to worry about the voice part.
