    RECORDING my own sounds

    Hi,

    I'm about to start using sound in my flash files, mainly for small sound effects. So I was thinking the best way was to record my own sounds and import them in.

    Does anyone know the best way to do this for the MAC, is it to buy a microphone and plug it in somewhere, and is there any software I'll need?

    thanks

    Mudd

    If you've got a Mic jack (most macs have, if not you'll need a USB Mic), just get a Microphone.
    You can use something like sound studio to record and adjust sound.

    a pretty cool audio app is sparkME . its free and you can use vst plugins with it... but only for osx

    as far as getting sound into the mac it really depends what kind of mac you have.

    i have an ibook and need to use a usb solution for it, because there's no audio in. some newer g4's have audio in again... but there was a phase where apple wanted people to buy usb stuff, i think.
    but anyway... if you have one of those macs a simple and probably the least expensive solution would be iMic from griffin technology.

    and even older macs have a slightly different audio interface...
    it looks like a regular 3.5 mm phono (small headphone plug)... but longer.

    hope that wasn't too much info

    have fun...

    Thanks for the advice, I've got a G4 and a G4 ibook with audio in on both, so I'll get a microphone and try out some different software.

    cheers
