I need to make a quick voice recording on my computer. Is there a built in way to do this? How can I make a voice recording on my mac?
Your easy answer is QuickTime Player. It comes installed on your computer.
- Launch the program
- Go to File –> New Audio Recording
- Click the red button when you are ready to record
- Your file will automatically save itself based on the preferences of your program. You can also do a “Save As” to save it somewhere else.
This will save your recording as a .mov file. If you need another file type, you can do a google search and find plenty of free shareware converters.
If you find your needs are more complex, take a look at Garage Band. It is very feature rich.
