Some similar questions have probably being asked, so let me go streight to my point:
I am not an audio editor, DJ, podcaster or anything similar..
In the other hand, because I am a somewhat experienced screen reader user and a screen reader studious, I have just made the transition from windows to mac and I think I can help folks in this situation by explaining them what's going on behind the senes, before they eventually give up. * please dont get me wrong: all tutorials, podecasts and phoruns here are great and this site was the main source I used to learn vo specifics, I just think I also can help...
And the way to do this would be by recording a podcast. In fact, I hope to contribute to the applevis podicasting team, but one thing to be considered is the quality of my spoken english and hopefully it will be good enough.. But one thing I will surely do is record lots of podcasts in portuguese, my native language, to help folks who do not speak english to get their way going.
This said, I do need help to figure out a fast way of recording podcasts in the mac. I am not that worried with audio editing, I just need to use something that will record the system and microphone sounds together.
I have been using my macbook air for one week now. There is, at least what I could find, only one p2 jack used to plug the earing phones in the left side, but no jack to plug a microphone or the line in as would be normal in a sound card.
So, the questions are as follows:
1- what software will let me record my voice and the sound system together?
2- What would be the procedures to do this recording?
3- Is there a way of recording the iphone sound (may be using a p2 p2 cable to direct the phone speech somehow to the mac?
4- What software on Mac do you guys podecasters at applevis use to record your podcasts?
Please note that, at this time, I have no external sound mixers or sound cards.
