Record Online Meetings in Pear Note

While Pear Note is primarily geared toward recording notes in the physical world, it's possible to use it to record things in the virtual world as well. For instance, you can use it to record and take notes on Skype calls. To do this:

  1. Download Soundflower and install it (along with the Soundflowerbed app that comes with it).
  2. Download LineIn and install it.
  3. Start Soundflowerbed, and select Built-in Output (or whatever output you'd like to listen to the conversation on).
  4. Start LineIn, and select your microphone (e.g. Built-in Mic) as the input and Soundflower (2ch) as the output, then press Pass Thru.
  5. Open Pear Note Preferences, select Recording, and select Soundflower (2ch) as the audio device.
  6. Open Skype Preferences, select Audio, and select Soundflower (2ch) as the audio output and your microphone (e.g. Built-in Mic) as the audio input.
  7. Hit record in Pear Note and make your Skype call.

This will allow you to conduct your Skype call while Pear Note records both your audio and the other participant's.

GiftBITS/15-Dec-98

Send Article to a Friend

Welcome to the TidBITS 1998 special gift issue, which falls outside our regular weekly publication schedule and features gift ideas contributed by TidBITS readers. Although we may not know much about any given suggestion, we've tried to provide necessary contact information to help you do more research or purchase any of the suggested gifts.

The range of suggestions was once again broad, although we were struck by the number of items that we recognized from previous gift issues. Be sure to skim the entire issue, if only because some suggestions don't fit snugly into any of the categories we've created.

Finally, best wishes for a happy holiday season from the TidBITS staff: Adam Engst, Tonya Engst, Geoff Duncan, Jeff Carlson, Matt Neuburg, and Mark Anbinder.
