HI everyone!

i have just joined this forum.
I am interested to know if anyone uses chrome book to make their recordings.
I see that there is some recording software that comes with chrome, but audacity is not one of them.
I went on the audacity website and it would seem that it is not compatible with Chrome book.

would be grateful for any suggestions!

Thank you

Audacity has not yet been ported to ChromeOS. Your best bet is probably the Twisted Wave sound editor.

Hi Ruth,
Welcome to LV!
GarageBand is also a good bet for mobile devices- it has decent recording materials. Most of the volunteers here use PCs or laptops, so I wouldn't be sure myself about using Chromebook, but yeah, like Tovarisch said, Twisted Wave is a great alternative.

Busy with little/no LV access June 15-24. Will try to keep up with claims, etc, but no/very little PLing during that time should be expected.
