I have a Mac and I had a tough time finding a Portable Digital Voice Recorder that was compatible for my computer. When shopping around for a recorder, you only get what you pay for, keep that in mind. I settled on a Sony MP3 IC Recorder (ICD-UX71) that easily downloads mp3 recordings to your Mac computer. It is one of the best investments I have made while training with my VO coach for animation. I use it to record my training sessions, any unique voices from the television, radio, you tube that want to layer or work with etc... What I also do is use a cheap set of headphones with a mic is record some of the character voices I have been working on developing. I use it all of the time and it is money well spent. The recorder is over $100 though Morgan, because of the mp3 capacity, but you can get something cheaper if you don't want this feature. Hope this helps.
