Just installed the latest version of Skype recorder?
Please restart. And check it again.
Q: MP3 Skype recorder creates records with 16000Hz sample rate. Could this be changed? I need 44100Hz.
Q: My voice on record is louder than the voice of the person I'm talking to. (or vice versa)
A: Skype uses automatic volume adjustment if your microphone volume level is too loud/quiet. The recorder saves the actual volume level (before Skype level adjustment). You can try to change the volume level for microphone in Windows control panel. Go to Control panel -> Sound and Audio devices -> Volume.
