Cool, what apps do you use?

(Which is more like what I was trying to ask in the first place).

Audiocorder OSX is the best app for just recording straight input from the mic. You can set it to start recording once input reaches a certain level, or just do manual recording. You'll be amazed at the quality of that mic too. I use mine just to record myself and my guitar, and burn those to CD, and make really crappy albums. I've been trying to find some cheap/free software that allows multitrack recording, but so far no luck. If anyone knows of anything, let me know. I tried SparkLE, but couldn't figure the damn thing out. I want something that operates just like my little Tascam 4-track. K.
Dooby, dooby doo.

The mic is of better quality than I would have expected... I primarily use it for controlling my mac using the speech commands... It also works well for using the TiBook as a speaker phone with the modem.

From the picture in the User's Guide it's inside the left speaker grill! Good question though.
