I have created my fair share of podcasts and found that recording phone conversations for interviews was a must. I also found that recording conference calls was a brutal exercise in futility and frustrating to say the least.
Even Jason Calacanis of Mahalo asked the question.
Yes, there are plenty of conference call companies out there who provide recording now but it seems bizarre how many of them are still delivering actual CDs and Tapes!? Most of them do not even make the recordings available online after the call, you have to ask for it and it costs extra.
And yes, there are free conference call providers out there that allow you to use their service free of charge who do provide recordings, but you have to pay for the long distance toll charges.
With Lypp it’s as simple as a checkbox when you create your conference call online or if you are using the system in an ad-hoc reservationless fashion you can just enter “6#” on your phone to start or stop recording. Within a few minutes your call recording(s) will be waiting for you at Lypp.com.
I know I am tooting my own horn a bit here but the system works like a charm.
Next week, we are going to be interviewing a few of the Lypp Conferencing customers that use the Lypp recording feature and sharing those podcasts with our readers via my Lypp Recordings RSS feed.
