How Call in Studio Works / FAQ

How Do You Connect to the Host Line?

The most difficult aspect of setting up Call in Studio is connecting a single phone call to your setup. If you are recording/broadcasting using Zoom, MS Teams, or other similar services, click here for specific instructions.

You must connect your audio to our Host Line via a phone call in order hear and talk to callers, and then log into our website to manage the calls within the Call in Studio web interface.

We do not broadcast your show or meeting, we manage the call-in portion of producing a show/meeting. This means you can broadcast using any means of broadcasting you like, such as through tradition radio (you provide the radio station), via online streaming provider of your choice (e.g., YouTube Live, Spreaker, Facebook Live, etc.), or simply recording to an audio file to publisher later (e.g., podcasting).

Many of our custors dial into our Host Line using Skype or Google Voice, though any means of connecting a single call to your setup will work. Alternatively, you may connect using our WebRTC interface, which allows you to connect the host call through your Web browser.

The most successful implementations involve using a small mixer board where their microphone(s) are connected into, with an additional audio line connected via a mix-minus configuration to a second computer or telephone that dials into our host line. The mixer board is often connection to a main computer that is broadcasting and/or recording their show or meeting.

Some mixing boards are designed to connect to a phone via a wired or bluetooth connection, and do the mix-minus automatically for you. The Rodecaster Pro and Zoom L8 mixers are popular options (if you purchase through these links, we earn a commission on the sale, though doing so is not required).
