How many speakers?  In a room?  Outdoors?  What kind of recorder do you use?  What is your budget?  Hi Fi or just need to be able to recognize what is being said?
Depending on your setup you might try:

Solution one: lavalier mics like an Audiotechnica ATR35 on each speaker's lapel.
Solution two: a boundary microphone on the table, like Shure mx395.  
Solution three: cardioid pattern mics pointed at each speaker (could also use a shotgun).
Solution four: one figure eight pattern mic put between two speakers facing each other (make sure the axis of the mic points at the two speakers).  
Solution five: you could scrap your recorder altogether and get a Zoom H2, put all four channels on and don't thump the table.

My mic only records for one side


Mic's only record in a directional fashion, in other words it will only record what you are saying, otherwise recording a conversation between 2 people is an invasion of privacy if it is not under consent

Recording from laptop


You can get a phone monitoring add on that will give better results. It would be more expensive than a tape recorder.

How di I record a phone conversion?


First make sure it is legal to record conversations via telephone in both your state and the other parties state. Now all you need is one of those old basic recorders with the big buttons out front. Go to Radio Shack and buy a cord that goes from the recorder to the telephone. May need a splitter. Press record and dial. That's it.

I have old home movies on these tapes.. I am looking into buying the Pinacle Dazzle DVD Recorder (convert) will this convert my tapes to DVD? Does anyone know?


You already have Movies on TDK E-HG 120 VHS tapes; All you want is to Transform the media on the tapes into another record Media or on DVD.

The following process would make possible the project

1. A DVD Recorder device would transform the movies already on one media to another media.
Note: The recorder that would be acquired should have a feed area for the VHS tapes on one hand, to be played, while on the other hand, a DVD disk area from which disk medium would be recorded.

Important Notes.
The devices required to make the process achievable includes
1. The DVD Recorder or Player alsoo known with multi perpose functionality for signal convertion capability
2. The DVD recordable disks on which to record a movies onto.

Caution
The process of recording would require selection features determinable on the recorder device else would produce movies with undesireable features

For example; VHS movies are appear in decodeable formats integral when displayed on VHS players. The caution is to select a signal conversion format suitable for movies that have to transform between recordable media.

1. A DVD disk medium has formats as design specification and on which requires consideration when attempting to transfer multi media or motion pictures.

Type of formats of decodes
NTSA standards
PAL standards
Mescem standards

NOTE;
Whenever the option is available, select NTSA or PAL for appropiate code transformation
Your DVD RECORDER DEVICE SHOULD HAVE THE OPTION TO RECORD CONSIDERING MOVIES ACROSS MEDIUM TYPES

REMEMBER;
consult professional advise before acquiring an devices and mediums

If any consultation is required, refer to user guides or manuals of the devices in question.

Consult a technical expert when the need requires it.

Using EasyCapDC60 with Ulead Video Studio 10.0. After a lot of probs(partly solved by using mic jack etc) can record old VHS tapes. But the sound is poor - a lot of reverb. Any answers? Thanks


You can play your VHS tapes on your VHS machine and use a better microphone that is placed at the optimum distance to eliminate feedback. This is not the way to go though because you are doing a valuable task with inferior way of getting a good result. Best way would be to get a VCR to PC Conversion System at an electronics store. I priced one at Radio Shack for $99. You probalby can do better at Fryes Electronics or look on the Internet (Google or Craigslist search amy turn up a better price or a used one).

If you and play your VHS through your current TV or Stereo system you may be able to use the audio out to your PC or other recording device.

The reason that the conversion system is so much better is that they are changing from the analog to the digital system and this is a direct way to rerecord the orignal recording without microphone feedback and room distortion noises.

Hope this helps you resolve your issue.

Recording a Phone Conversation


Olympus makes a device that allows you to record telephone conversations without having to hook up anything to the actual telephone. It is called a TP-7. It connects one end to the voice recorder in the mic jack and the other end is an ear bud microphone so that you are able to record the person who you are speaking to on the telephone so that the voice recorder captures both sides of the conversation.
go to emporium.olympus.com click on the link for voice recorders select your voice recorder and then look for the TP-7.
