View Full Version : using the PowerBook's built-in mic?

Nov 17, 2005, 09:35 PM
Using the free basic audio software called Audacity (http://audacity.sourceforge.net/), and hitting its record option, I recorded some of my voice clips. Anyway, the software is probably irrelevant, the question is about the quality of the PB's mic. How faithful is the recorded voice to my own original voice?

Someone with a real microphone has probably done a comparison between that product and their built-in mic. Thanks...

Record it and play it back at your end source. Can't be great but may be good enough for your use (what ever it may be?)

Id think unless your like making music or something that needs a really good mic the PBook would be fine. My iBook's mic is great for things like voice recording.

Its pretty decent. I just recently started recording lectures with the built in mic and it picks up just enough sound. You really have to turn up the volume to hear it tho.
