Great app with great features

I needed an app to record lectures from my laptop. This one works really well. I love being able to add markers for changes in topics or for important information. I also like being able to separate recordings into categories (or classes) and being able to label them specifically. Another great feature is plitting recordings into sections based on markers… However, this is one of the two reasons I gave the app only 4 stars. You can't cut the audio in any other way. It would be nice to clip a recording in two at a specified place instead of only wherever you have markers. Could mess up your recording. I made this mistake already and now have several audio files for one lecture. I learned my lesson. The second reason I gave this app 4 stars is that it picks up my keystrokes more than the external audio from the professor. I am experimenting with using some type of external microphone (i.e. headphones with a mic) to record to try and solve this problem. You can still hear the lecture just fine; I just wish all of my keystrokes from taking notes during the lecture weren't so obviously noticeable.

Great for taking notes

A great tool to help me prepare for Medical Board Exams. The ability to add on to existing recordings lets me pause, read some text, think of a question, and then ask it without delaying the recording. Two features I'd like to see added are the ability to change the default title of the recordings and the ability to change the automatic pausing time delay which is currently set at 5 seconds. But the bottom line is this is a very polished program that is well worth the price.

Excellent with Magic Cutter

The ability to record and skip silence means you don't have to monitor a recording while digitizing since the silence at the end is skipped. Of course silence in the middle is also skipped which can save significant storage space. Then, after the recording is captured, Magic Cutter allows it to be chopped into smaller pieces so the segments are of convenient duration. Capture is very convenient and can run in background.
