Recording telephone conversation hardware/software
on Nov 18, 2005 at 6:19:23 pm


I am looking to record a telephone interview, which will be between a half hour and an hour long. I would like to record it straight to my Mac's hard drive. It will be professionally edited and used as a podcast. It will be a one-time thing so I don't want to spend a lot of money.

Can anyone suggest hardware and/or software to purchase, or in the case of hardware - just rent? Thanks in advance,

You are probably better off finding an audio studio in your area and using an hour of time to record your interview. Unless you're in a big city, you can probably find rates of $50 to $100 per hour. That way you'll get a professional recording and have it in whatever format you need: aiff, wav, DAT, etc.

Check out and Mandy at There are other lists. Try googling audio studios, recording studios, etc.

Belkin makes a telephone interface that plugs into a telephone handset and terminates in an unballanced 1/8" plug. I've used it on a couple of occasions, and have been quite happy with the results. Best of all, you can buy one at the local Business Depot for around $15. Note that this will record both ends of the conversation, which could be a problem if you want the interviewer to have a nice clean studio sound. A bit of judicious editing can resolve that issue, though.
