Audacity on a new MacBook
Authored by: jscarry on Jun 11, '06 08:53:31PM
I jst got my new MacBook for some reason my usual sound program, Sound Studio, won't accept my registration, so I downloaded a copy of Audacity. I've tried Audacity in the past but it always had problems. I had the same reliability issues as another poster and rarely used it.
It has had trouble booting up on my MacBook, but after a force quit, it started. It recorded a short test file fine, but I'm getting a spinning beach ball when I try to play back a 2 minute test. So, it isn't ready for Intel Macs yet.
An interesting side effect of my testing is that I noticed the sound quality of the built-in mic is really good. There is almost no background noise. The noise filter in Audacity took what little noise there was out. You could definitely use the MacBook to record meeting notes or podcasts.
Another aside, the MacBook works well with Skype. Good sound quality for the person on the other end and excellent quality for me.
