Record Sound...

▪ Record Sound lets you record a sound into Mathematica. (Macintosh only, microphone required)
▪ With a sound recording peripheral connected to your computer, and the proper drivers installed, you can record sounds directly into Mathematica. To record a sound, first place a cell insertion point (horizontal I-bar) in your notebook, then choose Record Sound . A dialog box appears with buttons to control your recording. Once you have recorded a sound, click Save to paste the sound in your notebook. Mathematica can play recorded sounds just like sounds natively generated in Mathematica.
▪ You can use the Convert to InputForm command to convert recorded sounds into a list of numbers (samples) in the form of a Mathematica list.
