Your Mac computer is packed with plenty of useful in-built features, many of which are used by professionals to accomplish their specialized tasks. However, there is one piece of software that your Mac doesn’t normally come with – the advanced and specialized software that can capture audio on your Mac without distorting it in the process. Yes, there are plenty of third-party tools available on the web. In fact, the Internet is cluttered with them, but most of them promise a lot and don’t deliver. These often come bundled with a host of malware and adware that you would rather live without.
With Movavi Screen Capture Studio, you are now able to capture audio and video on your Mac without any strings attached. It doesn’t matter if it’s your own voice, audio streams or just plain old system sounds – if your Mac can play it, Movavi can record it.
This isn’t to say that there aren’t some specialized software that can already accomplish this, but they have a prohibitively difficult learning curve that an average user simply doesn’t have the time for. Movavi gives you the skill set of a professional audio engineer without going through the pain and hassle of learning all the tools of the trade.

So how does Movavi Screen Capture Studio help you, again? Just follow these instructions:
Step 1) Installing the Software
The first step is to download and run the installer. Simply follow the onscreen instructions to install Movavi Screen Capture Studio in a directory of your choice.
Step 2) Running the Software
Once the software has been properly installed, run it and click on “Record Screen” when prompted. This mode lets you record all the sound that is outputted from your Mac, including songs from streaming services, microphone output and other sources of audio. If you prefer to capture isolated audio from the microphone only, you can choose the “Record audio” option to stop other sources.
Step 3) Adjusting the Audio Capture Settings
The “Record Screen” button will reveal a window with what looks like a recording frame. You don’t need this frame for audio purposes. Instead, ensure that that “System Audio” is activated if you want to capture all audio output from your Mac in an unadulterated form. To capture only audio, you can click on the “Microphone” button.
Step 4) Recording the Audio
Once you have configured your settings, it is time to start playing the audio that you want to capture. Once you are ready, click on the “REC” button. This will reveal two buttons, “Pause” and “Stop”, to let you control the recording process. Alternatively, you can also press the hotkeys 1 and 2 for pause and stop respectively.
Step 5) Saving the Audio Clip
A preview window will let you replay the audio clip. From here, you can also adjust the length of the audio recording process. Movavi Screen Capture Studio captures the ongoing screen as well, but you can discard the video and save the recording as an audio file.
Simply click on “Save As” and select the “MP3” format – or similar audio formats – in the pop-up export window. Now click “Save”.
Step 6) Editing Your Audio
Movavi Screen Capture Studio is a highly versatile tool that also lets you edit the audio track. To do this, simply select the timeline and double-click on it. You can adjust several settings on the popup “Audio” window. Some of these options include:
- Changing the volume
- Altering the tempo
- Removing noise
- Overlaying extra audio effects
Once you are satisfied with the changes, you should proceed by saving the results. Click on the “Export” button. This will reveal the export window once more. Open the “Save Audio File” button and select your preferred audio format. Now press on “Start” to activate processing.
Movavi Screen Capture Studio helps you capture the ongoing screen activity as well, giving you 100% lossless audio and video quality which normally doesn’t require any post-processing with advanced audio software.
