This is a guide for recording Discord Meetings on a Mac.

  1. I use a software called EaseUS RecExperts. It costs money, but it’s the best thing I found after an hour of research. Download it here. It’s $20 monthly, or $80 lifetime.
  2. Open the app and click Upgrade to Full Version (anything else only records 5 minutes of audio).
  1. Go through the payment flow and you’ll receive a license key in your email inbox that you can enter where it says Enter license.
  2. Click the section titled Audio.

  4. Skip this step if you don’t need the recording to record your voice. If you want to record your own voice in the recording, be sure to click Sound, and then enable the Microphone toggle and click OK. Of course if you have headphones on, you’ll want to set the input to that device.

  6. One more step before we hit record. Open an app called Audio MIDI Setup (it’s already on your Mac). On the left side you should see an audio device called EaseUS Audio Device. Click it, and you’ll see there’s a couple output already checked. BlackHole 2ch needs to be checked, this means your computer is piping the audio output to the recorder. Notably, if you are using headphones, you’ll want to check that box and uncheck the MacBook Pro Speakers.
    1. It’ll be obvious if this isn’t working when you start recording, because the audio bars won’t be moving if it isn’t capturing the audio (see photo on the right).
  1. Ok, now you can hit the giant REC button to try recording. In order to test the output, I like to play a song on Spotify and play a song on Spotify or something like that. Notably, the audio bars will not move when you speak. Then hit the red stop button on the right.
  2. When you stop the recording you’ll be taken to this screen where you can listen to the recording. You can hit Return to Home in the top right corner to go back to the recorder interface. If you want to be taken to the file explorer in order to drag and drop the recording into Drive, click the folder logo in the bottom right.

  4. After recording a meeting, drop the file into the Beanstalk Recordings Drive folder (with an appropriate title)
