How to record sessions on MacBook? (For online sessions)

Session Recording2023-04-08

Searching for a good audio recording application for Mac for your online therapy sessions? Look no further, I believe I have found not just one, but two for you: QuickTime player and OBS Studio.

1. Recording using QuickTime player (Free)

2. Recording using OBS Studio (Free)

NB: We recommend you do NOT use headphones, earpieces, or AirPods during online sessions, as it may affect the recording of the other patient/client's sound.

1. Recording using QuickTime player

QuickTime player is easy to use and offers good audio quality and free audio recordings so there is no need for you to enroll in any subscription. This article will show you how you can use QuickTime player to record your sessions and save them locally on your machine.

Step 1: It is important to note that QuickTime player is built into all Mac OS machines. So, to locate it go to the applications folder located on the dock of the Mac you are using.

Step 2: After opening the application choose the ‘new audio recording’.

Step 3: Press the red button to start/stop the recording. Note that the recording cannot be paused.

Step 4: After finishing the recording the file remains without a name.

Step 5: Once you close the window the app will ask you to choose a folder then name and save the recording locally on your machine. Avoid saving on the cloud.

What is next?

After recording your session, the next step is to upload the recording to Mentalyc for it to generate a progress note. Click on the link for a step-by-step guide.

2. Recording using OBS Studio

OBS Studio is a user-friendly software that provides high-quality audio recordings and allows you to record sessions without requiring any subscription fees. In the tutorial video below, you will learn how to use OBS Studio to record your sessions and save them directly onto your computer.
