    I am trying to record from a disc and convert it into mp3 format so that I can upload to a website. I used to do this on my PC by recording directly from the cd into a program called audacity. I have downloaded Audacity for Mac but I can't figure out how to do this. Or can this be done in Garage Band? I would prefer to stick with Apple software if it is possible. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    What kind of disc is it? If it's a CD can't you just rip it in iTunes?

    In Audacity make sure you the recording setting is NOT set to 'line-in'. This will record from external sources, such as guitars.

    Audacity only has two options; Built In Input & Built In Microphone, for recording that I can see. I can pull the audio CD into itunes but I am trying to do some editing to the audio which I was doing in audacity on my PC. I then used a program to convert the audio to MP3 and uploaded it to a website. I can get garage band to record it but it also records any other external sounds as well.

    My end goal is to pull in an audio CD; make some edits; save it and then convert it to MP3; and then upload the MP3 file to a website. I'm sure the MAC can do this, I just can't figure out how to do it.

    Thanks for your help...

    Launch Audacity.

    File --> Open...


    Find track on the CD.

    Open track.

    Make edits.


    File --> Export as MP3 (once you've downloaded the LAME encoder)


    Does that not work?
