Allow Morae to record both a mic and the system audio (like Camtasia)

When trying to set up a remote usability test, where we would be using Skype to view and record the participant's desktop, it became apparent that it is not possible in Morae to record both the mic and the system audio, as you can in Camtasia. Thus, I could either record my audio or the participant's, but not both. Obviously, this makes Morae unusable for this sort of remote usability testing. Remote testing is becoming more common, and I am afraid I will have to give up on Morae as our go-to testing platform if I can't record remote sessions. Since this was solved in Camtasia, it shouldn't be difficult to transfer the solution to Morae.

Mike,

Thank you for your suggestion.  The reason Camtasia currently differs from Morae is that each of these audio sources is recorded as a separate stream in Camtasia.  Camtasia's editor provides a great deal of control over each audio and video stream.  That control, of course, comes with a bit more complexity.  We chose to avoid that complexity with Morae.  We may revisit that decision at some point down the road.

Thanks again for your input.
