Repurposing your live streams can be quite challenging. And it gets even harder when it comes to Q&As, interviews, and talk shows with multiple participants. Why? Because editing such recordings can become a real nightmare, especially when your guests constantly talk over each other. That’s why we came up with an elegant solution to this problem — split track recording! This feature allows you to record and download each participant’s audio separately.
