In the Voice Memos app on your Mac, choose File > Start New Recording or click the Record button .
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 of your location (if “Location-based naming” is selected in preferences) or with the name “New Recording.”
