Either it’s OK, or you might get fired. Recording audio in classrooms or lectures appears more commonplace and meets with less resistance. If you need to capture the audio on your Mac, and do it simply and easily, here’s the app that does the deed, and it’s cheap.
Lectures Or Whatever
The app is called Lecture Recorder, and though it’s descriptive, that’s probably not the best name for what it does. Lecture just sounds so stuffy.
Your Mac comes with an option to record audio already in QuickTime Player and in Garageband, but one is cumbersome for recording meetings, classrooms, or lectures, and the other isn’t enough.
Lecture Recorder is simpler than Garageband, yet does more to manage recordings than QuickTime Player.
Controls are simple. Click the big red Record button to begin recording the audio coming into your Mac.
Audio can be the Mac’s built-in microphone or a connected USB microphone. When you’re done recording, click the pause or stop button.
There’s also an option to use the Voice Activated Recording function.
Audio recordings are easily displayed in the Mac’s Finder. Each audio recording can be played back using the transport controls at the bottom of the app’s window.
Audio can be shared, saved as an MP3 audio file, saved into iTunes for playback on iPod, iPhone, or iPad (or, pretty much any other modern audio device), too. Audio recordings can be renamed, deleted, played back, saved, and recordings can be minutes or hours in length (based on storage available).
Not perfect, not Notability, but decent for the nominal price tag.
