well, I work at wal-mart and need to come up with some PA announcements for the connection center that I run. I want to voice record them on my mac and burn them to cd so I don't have to actually say them every hour on the hour. Any recomendation on how to do this?
Sure, download Audio Recorder from Version Tracker. That (free) program will allow you to record from your microphone and save to a mp3, mp4 or aiff file, all of which can be burned to CD. I recommend you save all of your recordings as mp3s to a single folder, then make a new playlist in iTunes (the + at the bottom left) and drag the recordings into the playlist. Then put a blank CD-R in the computer's CD drive and press "Burn Disc" (circle at the top right) twice.
When you burn that CD, make sure its being burned as a "Audio CD". iTunes --> Preferences --> Burning. I suggest this because I'm not sure if the CD player you will be using has MP3 support or not. If it by chance does, then just burn it as a "Mp3 CD" no problem.
