    Hello,
    I just need to record a simple recording of my voice. What can I use to do that? I'm pretty sure I've used my built in cam before, but I don't need video, just audio.

    1. Garageband > Add male/women voice > Record
    2. If you have Quicktime Pro you can record audio

    I have a smiliar question. I recorded my voice using the quicktime recorder which saves it in a .mov format. How do I get that into an mp3 format so I can burn a CD? What I want to do is burn a recording of my voice onto a CD.

    You can drop the tracks into iTunes or Toast and make the CD from there.

    I can drop in into iTunes and play it from there, but when I try to burn it to a CD I get an error message saying it is in the wrong format. I made the recording in QT with an iCamera using just the audio.

    Hmm, I thought iTunes would convert it automatically. Nevertheless, you can right-click individual tracks (or a bunch of them) and convert to AAC (or another "native" format) from there.

    Wow, I didn't know you can do that w/ QT pro!!!

    I'm going to try recording my lectures tomorrow in school with it ( I use my mbp to take notes) - I wonder how well that will turn out. It would be golden if it sounded half decent.
