I found RecordPad to be extremely useful! Just wanted to take quick notes, but, like the brilliant Evernote, sometimes a simple piece of software does it best. Thanks!

RecordPad is a very good little tool, but since I was trying to save an audio streaming youtube, it was unable to capture the audio information as the youtube file played. Other than that, RecordPad is perfect for all other audio-capturing applications. I probably didn't do enough research about what RecordPad offered when I selected it, or otherwise didn't understand that it couldn't collect streaming audio. My bad.

Or, perhaps your literature can better reflect this? Or perhaps you'll consider allowing streaming audio capture in a different RecordPad? In fact I spent several minutes with the software before I realized I apparently needed some other equipment like a microphone. Nothing in the software or literature tells you this, though.

Anyway, ultimately I went with NCH's SoundTap free download software for what I needed. Thanks again. RecordPad is great for what it is.

Does what it says on the tin

Where GarageBand falls down (as with all Apple Software) is that it isn't very good at exporting to standard file formats, so you cannot record and save something in MP3 or WAV format. It is therefore useless for recording vocals or a live mix. RecordPad Sound Recorder for Mac is the perfect cheap replacement for this - nice visual level metering, simple controls, the facility to automatically email the file, mirror to a disk/server and good quality options for MP3 and WAV file recording. I am very happy with it and recommend it to you if, like me, you simply want to record voice for use in other packages/operating systems.

great, simple sound recorded

While I am a professional sound guy, my Dad isn't. He needed a simple, easy to
use Mac OS X voice recorder, and this is just about perfect. Only complaint is
that the playlist window does not remember it's position from one launch to the

Missing a key feature

My use requires an app to run in the background and do the following:

(1) based on non-silence encountered, create new audio file and record.
(2) based on silence for a user-defined duration, close opened audio file

Not for me

The program does not differentiate what is coming through the sound card and what the computer mike
picks up -- the program lays down both in the audio tracks. Not helpful to have room noises in a

Nice program

Seemed like a nice program. I don't think it crashed, out of all of the programs I tried. I'm still not sure I
want to buy something because I'm dead broke right now. Kinda looking for a more Mac OS X Leopard-
like interface that is more natural to a voice recorder. I have a lot of dictations I want to do.

Thanks, and keep me updated!
