When it comes to recording audio on your Mac, we Mac users have plenty of choices. Both QuickTime and Garageband, free with every Mac, have options to record and save audio, but both are cumbersome for creating audio notes of meetings or classes.
For less than a couple of dollars you can install Tell Note on your Mac and make it very easy to record meetings or classes (or, interviews, lectures, et al.) with nothing more than a click.
Tell Note is simple to setup and use. Click the big Record button to begin recording.
Audio notes are stacking to the right of the recording controls. Audio files can be exported as standard .m4a files (no .mp3 option), synced up with your iPhone or iPad, and stored and opened in iTunes.
The time of each recording is displayed in the audio note details. What would be useful to me are options to change the audio recording file format, adjust the quality of the audio recording (lower quality audio files take up less space).
When it comes to a simple way to record audio notes on your Mac, Tell Note is about as straightforward as you can get, and it’s priced so it won’t break the bank.
Mac and iPhone have many such apps, similarly priced, which also have more options for storage, sharing, and adjusting audio quality.
