    Best App for creating an audio file straight from the built-in Mic
    What is the best app to use for just creating a 30-60 second audio file?

    I need to create a radio spot for my media class.

    If you have Quicktime Pro, it's the easiest.

    Otherwise, Garageband will do your recording for you.

    You have to create a new Track (Track > New Track I think). And then make it a "Real Instrument". That's all. Very easy.

    garageband would be the easiest since you already have a mac.
