While recording a podcast, it would be useful to be able to set markers for later editing. Eg, to mark that I just heard...

  • a mistake or awkward silence that I want to edit out
  • a bit of info that should go in the show notes
  • a great soundbite for previewing the episode

Ideally I could define some marker types and keyboard shortcuts - eg mm for "mark mistake", to be shown as a red marker, mi for for "mark info", to be shown as a green marker, etc.

However, any kind of "mark for later review" feature would be better than trying to scribble down "5:38" somewhere myself.

I'm currently using Audacity and don't see a way to do this.

So I'm looking for:

  • Audio recording software that allows setting markers while recording to help guide later editing
  • Preferably available for MacOS
  • Paid is OK. I'd like to know about any options, regardless of price, although obviously cheap or free is nice if possible.

Does any audio recording / editing software include a feature like this?

you could use Logic Pro X, Its exelent software for recording an editing for Mac Os, another software could be Ardour that is more dificult but so professional too.

Total Recorder Pro may meet your requirements, although it appears for Windows machines only. Here's one segment of the description to meet your requirement for markers:

Use Cue-sheet files. Total Recorder lets you create cue-points, which can be used for splitting a file afterwards. These cue-points can be created manually, for example to make a bookmark in a sound file. Or they can be created automatically during a recording session (based on pause reduction, changes of the clip information in an external player, etc.) or while capturing streaming audio and information about a track changes.

At a price of just shy of US$36.00, it won't break the bank, if non-Mac doesn't break the deal.
