again, way off topic

Good morning all,

I am sorry for another way off topic

My local radio station is playing the last Springsteen / clarence Clemons (rest in peace) concert on friday night. Happened to take place up here.

Is there a way to record it on my mac or through connections to my stereo?

I was at the concert and would love to have it.

This radio station also streams live on the web too.

Thanks for any thoughts.

Quite often a normal cable of a pair of stereo jack plugs to a single
plug connector will do the trick of getting it into the Mac, then
there are a variety of programmes to actually record the broadcast.

An easier option might be the internet broadcast, then AudioHijack or
AudioRecorder can ‘hijack’ your web browser and record the stream. I
think both are fairly cheap, but make sure you don’t just go with the
demo version as I think they only give you 10 minutes or so of
recording before it adds in white noise.

Thank you Trev!

Right now I am using this cord:
http://store.apple.com/us/product/M9573LL/A?fnode=MTY1NDA3Ng&mco=MTA4NDU2MDM

to hook my stereo to my mac to play my itunes through my stereo. can this be used?

I will check into the 2 programs also.

I do appreciate it.

That cable should be fine Julie, it’s just what programme to use once
it’s into the Mac, I use Amadeus which is a good all-round audio
editor and quite cheap. I still think the easiest for you might be one
of the 2 programmes mentioned earlier.

Good Luck & happy hunting. Shame about Clarence.

If you don’t want to pay for a full feature audio recording application, search of Audacity. It’s free and open source, and is often bundled with audio hardware.

I use it here to record and edit stuff. It’s a bit clunky in places, but works pretty well.

Heather, I tried the audacity and recorded as I played the station on the web. It sounded very tinny. also I am seeing that I have to have the volume completely up so that the built in microphone will pick it up. I will continue to play with it to stop that. any tips?

Thank you

Hmm. Sounds like the output from your source isn’t adequate. Is there any way to get a line output (phono or RCA type sockets) which can go directly into the Mac’s mic socket?

Also, you may need to adjust the input levels on the Mac. You can do that through the Sound control panel in System Preferences. Another thing to watch out for is Audio Midi Setup (find it in Applications > Utilities).

Once it works properly, it’s very good.

Cheers

That did it - I used my cord http://store.apple.com/us/product/M9573LL/A?fnode=MTY1NDA3Ng&mco=MTA4NDU2MDM
and put it in the rec. rca jacks and changed up where audio is coming from etc…

I wish garageband would do that - but only works with the built in mic.

Thank you so much! Now I am ready for friday
