Create a recording on Mac
With Voice Memos, you use your Mac as a recording device. To create a recording, use the built-in microphone, a supported headset, or an external mic. You can listen to your Voice Memos recordings on any Apple device where you’re signed in with the same Apple ID. See See your recordings on all your Apple devices.
In the Voice Memos app on your Mac, click the Record button (or use the Touch Bar).
To pause, click the Pause button . To continue, click Resume.
When you finish, click Done in the lower-right corner.
Your recording is saved with the name “New Recording” or the name of your location (if “Location-based Naming” is selected in settings and you allowed Voice Memos to detect the location of your Mac).
After a recording is saved, you can select it to play or make edits, such as renaming or trimming.
