    Hi, I'm looking for a voice recording program for OS X. I need to record an interview for class and I wanted to use the built in microphone on my MacBook to do this. Is there any program that can record into wav or MP3 for at least 10 minutes? Thanks in advance.

    Quicktime will do this for you, File - New Audio Recording.

    Can't remember if you need "pro" for this as i 've had pro for so long now forgotten what it was like before

    GarageBand? Its a free application thats part of iLife which came with your Mac. It should do the trick. You can save it as an MP3.

    i've had to do this is a couple of times for my classes and i have always used garageband. just add a new track --> real instrument and then you should be able to record away with the built-in microphone.

    i use audacity, since i tend to remove garageband because i have no use for it really.

    garageband and audacity are ultimately unnecessary for this.

    pay the $29.95 registration fee for QuickTime Pro and you can do exactly what you want to do: just record a simple audio file with no frills. it's great.
