recording a phone call into pro tools?

I need to record a phone call (one from UK and one from china). quality is not really an issue since it's for a biz pitch, but I need to get the audio out of the phone and into pro tools.

anybody have a recommendation for setting this up (hardware) or skype?

EDIT: looking to do this relatively cheap (and fast).

thanks!

If its like my iPhone, take a lead out of the headphone and into a mono 1/4 jack (using adapter). Then monitor your input so you can at least hear them on the other end.

I get no cell reception at work, but maybe I can use another person's phone with a different carrier.

thanks, didn't even think about that.

It might be more difficult if you want to record both parties.

You might also need to have a 58 for your own vocal onto a separate track, but it should work.

found a little thingy at radioshack. suction cup device that attaches to the back end of the receiver. maybe that plus a close mic'd 58 to the speakerphone will do.

Make sure not to accidentally send phantom into the headphone jack on an iphone. I've seen two ipods ruined this way.

If you're using a land line, what you want is a telephone hybrid.

If you use a free phone number from Google Voice you can automatically record any incoming call just by pressing the #4 on the phone's keypad. The call will be saved to your GoogleVoice/Gmail account (as a wav file, I think). The Google system voice announces "Call Recording ON" which both parties can hear, then commences recording. When call recording is ended, the voice announces "Call Recording OFF."

Alternatively, make your call with Skype, and use one of the many 3rd-party apps to record your call.

Here for the gear
 

Install soundflower - use Skype. With soundflower you can route in and out of ProTools

There are more than few apps for smartphones that will record your conversation. Import recorded audio file to PT and.... done.
