Recording Voice Memos On Your Mac

The new Voice Memos app in macOS Mojave allows you to quickly and easily record voice memos and any audio from your Mac's microphone. It keeps a small library of voice memos and lets you go back and append to them, trim them, and edit them. They sync over iCloud with the Voice Memos app on your iPhone and iPad so it is easy to record on one and edit and listen on the other. You can also export the memos as standard audio files.

    I use Voice Memos frequently on my iPhone. Love the ease & flexibility to edit. Had no idea it is now on the Mac until I saw your latest update #1763. So thanx! Is there a way to delete multiple unneeded voice memos, without having to do them one at a time? Also would like to be able to re-order the list. Have tried to move them but to know avail. Any tricks to make that happen.

    Elaine: I don’t see any way to select multiple to delete them, but since it is just a single action to delete anyway, it is pretty quick. Just keep hitting the Delete key, or down arrow to move to the next without deleting. They are always in chronological order.

    Thank you for your article, do you know if there is a way to export voice memos in Mac to GarageBand? I cannot find where the actual Voice Memo file is being stored. I can’t seem to find the answer anywhere else online either. In the meantime, I’ve just been Airdropping it to my phone and then Airdropping it back to my Mac as a workaround.

    In response to my post above, I found that I can just drag & drop the file from Voice App directly into Finder. I tried it right after I posted my question, and now I feel silly. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Sergio: I show that in the video.

    The option to use VOICE MEMO appears only after having opened it (at least once.) The easiest way is to command space and begin typing until the search bar populates itself. I was searching away and remembered that more and more features aren’t intuitively obvious unless and until intentionally opened. That’s why we love MacMost.
