How to record an MP3 on a Mac with Movavi Screen Recorder
Movavi Screen Recorder is a user-friendly application for Mac and Windows devices that enables you to record both video and audio from your screen with ease. It provides swift capturing, customizable parameters, simple system audio grabs, and integrated editing tools to refine your recordings. Plus, you can also record audio from multiple sources to capture the full breadth of sound.
Here’s how to record MP3 audio on a Mac using Movavi Screen Recorder:
Step 1. Download and install Movavi Screen Recorder
To begin, download Movavi Screen Recorder and follow the instructions to install it on your computer. The process takes just a few clicks.
Step 2. Configure recording parameters
Launch Movavi Screen Recorder and choose the Screen recording option from the program's sidebar.
To capture internal audio, disable the Webcam and Microphone icons, and make sure the System Audio button stays green. Although the program records the screen and audio track simultaneously, you can save the audio track independently during the finalization process. To record an MP3 on your Mac, click REC to record and turn on your audio.
Step 3. Save the file to your device
Once you've completed the recording, trim the audio and save what you need. Use the Scissors and Trash Can icons to cut and discard any superfluous audio. With that, you're prepared to save the edited track to your computer.
To store your finished audio file, click on the Export button and select MP3 in the next window to save only the audio track. Before saving, ensure you have adequate space and check the file size. Then, click Save and wait for the file to export.
