How to Record Voice on Mac

Want to record app or system alerts, save audio from the Internet, or wondering how to record your voice on Mac? Get Movavi Screen Capture, a simple Macbook audio recorder that will help you capture any type of audio on your Mac, including internal system sounds, online streaming audio, Internet audio players, Skype calls, and radio. All you need to do is simply download our voice recorder for Mac and follow these four brief steps. Let’s get started!

Step 1: Download the Sound Recorder for Mac

When you’ve downloaded the file, run it and follow the usual Mac OS X instructions to install the audio recording software. The installation process will take just a couple of minutes and, when it’s finished, you can immediately start recording audio on your Mac.

Step 2: Set Parameters for Recording

Step 2.1 - Set parameters for recording audio on Mac

Open Movavi Screen Capture. In the center of the program window, you can see two large icons – a speaker and a microphone marked with green checkmarks. This means that, in the next capturing session, the audio recorder will grab the sound from your Mac’s input and output audio devices simultaneously. This feature will come in handy when you need sound from both your microphone and audio set to be recorded, for example if you’re capturing Skype calls or video conferences. Just expand the input devices list and make sure you’ve selected the right device.

By the way, if you don’t need one of the sound devices to be recorded, you can simply turn it off by clicking the icon – the green checkmark will disappear.

Step 2.2 - Open the Select Capture Area list and record voice on Mac with Movavi software

If you plan to record not only audio, but also make a video clip, you’ll need to make a few more preparations. Adjust the frame on your screen to fit the size of your future video and drag it to the appropriate place, or open the Select Capture Area list and pick one of the standard video sizes.

Step 3: Record Computer Audio on Your Mac

Step 3 - Click the REC button to start using voice recorder for Mac

To start audio recording on Mac, click REC. The program will record sounds until you hit Stop. After you finish recording, you’ll see a preview window on your screen. Click Play to check out your new video clip.

Step 4: Save Your Files

Step 4 - Use audio recorder for Mac and save the result

Now open the Save as list and you’ll see the most popular digital video and audio format presets. Can’t find the one you need? Go to the Video and audio section and find the desired presets for MP3, AAC or another format. The best way to optimize your recordings for mobile playback is to pick Devices and browse the list of devices for which you can optimize your clip. When you’re ready, click Save to run the file transferring process – in just moments, your newly created files will be ready for whatever you want to do with them next.
