I've seen a lot of people asking about note-taking apps or voice recorders, but nothing exactly like this. I just need a simple (free or paid) audio recording app that can pick up not only a nearby voice but also, say, lectures and discussions from across a smallish classroom. I would prefer that it be able to save the recordings in MP3 format. I've seen a few like this in the app store, but most of them are paid and I'd like to get people's input before shelling out $15 for an app. Thanks! Hengest ---------- P.S. This would be for Macbook Pro Lion.
