Application collection started as a hobby, a Mac pastime, many years ago, and has flourished into, well, something of a professional hobby. I am collecting applications, evaluating apps, sharing apps. My criteria are simple. Apps I use myself or want to use, programs I recommend to family, friends, co-workers (with implied support issues).
Sometimes, Mac applications are so complicated, intricate, poorly designed and expensive that I ask myself, " Why bother? " Other applications are so easy to use with such a special purpose that I Ask myself half as much. " Why? "
That's the case with Simple Recorder, a free-to-wait I say " simple – audio recording tool that does a thing. It records sound No matter what audio input the Mac uses at that time, the Simple Recorder uses to record; connected USB microphone, built-in microphone, anyway.

The same recording, stopping, pause and selection options are also available in the app's Dock icon, and I can't remember using a simpler audio recorder app. "Why?"
QuickTime Player, also free, ka n do the same. Who can GarageBand; And both come with every Mac and have far more capacity. So, "Why?" Easy recorder can be good for quick notes, or to record the sound to a meeting. Messages for OS X have a similar feature to record an audio message quickly and send it to someone. I've reviewed and used a variety of audio notes for Mac, so the competition is intense.
Nevertheless, if all you need is a two-click method to record high quality audio on your Mac and you can live without any other features, Simple Recorder is worth the download time. Perhaps in a future update, the developer will change the menu word & # 39; Recod & # 39; for the more orderly use, & # 39; Record & # 39 ;.
