    I would like to bring a Macbook to college and record the audio during classes so I can later on listen to the recordings and study.
    Does anyone have any recommendation about the best software to use to record and catalog the speeches?

    I will probably use iTunes to tag and store the files but I am at a loss as to what the best application would be for recording with decent quality through the built in microphone..

    I figure Garageband should do the trick just fine.

    I've never really used it...

    Care to give me a rough explanation on how to go about doing this?

    Don't use garageband, it makes your macbook go crazy after a couple of minutes and usually froze on me before the lecture was over. Use microsoft word. It's great for recording and plus you can type notes at the same time.

    CP Notebook
    Omnioutliner Pro
    and
    VoodooPad

    all have audio recording functions together with notetaking ability at the same time (CP Notebook is particularly good - see the movies). The problem is they are not free which is difficult for students.

    Quicktime does audio recording doesn't it?

    word actually works really well, I use it all the time
    just use the notebook layout in 2004 and click the record button at the top of the screen

    That's why I love Macrumors...

    Thanks a lot!

    It's perfect! Simple, gets the job done and I can even take my notes in the same application as a bonus...

    Thanks again.
