How To Record Audio On Your Mac

There are many ways to record audio from your Mac's built-in microphone or a mic you have connected. You can use the Voice Memos app or the QuickTime Player app to record quickly into a file you can use in another app or send online. You can use GarageBand for more complex recordings and editing. You can also record audio directly into some apps like iMovie, Keynote and Pages.

    Frederick: Depends on the mic. If it is a USB mic, then just plug it in to your USB port. If not, then get a USB mic or get a device that converts analog mics to USB. Search Amazon for “mic to usb” and a ton come up.

    Great overview! If you need to record system audio or any audio from any app, that you can hear on your Mac (not from your microphone), Audio Hijack works great.
