If you want to record your own song, you can follow this tutorial using the internal microphone on your Mac computer.

1. Start "Application > QuickTime Player".

2. Select "File > New Audio Recording" in the menu. You see a small Audio Recording window.

3. Click the arrow next to the recording button. You see "Internal Microphohe" cheched and "(Quality) High" checked.

4. Clear your voice and be ready to sing.

5. Click the recording button and start to sing. Make sure you sing towards the location of the internal microphone (near the top left corner of your keyboard) on your Mac computer.

6. Click the recording button again to stop recording.

7. Select "File > Save" in the menu to save the recording as a music file like ~/temp/my-song.m4a. Note that QuickTime Player saves the file in .m4a (MPEG-4 Audio) format.

You can also record music from your iPhone speaker. Just make sure to move the speaker close to the internal microphone, keeping a distance of 1 inch.
