Awhile back I received couple of emails from some teachers asking about some app recommendations to record and edit audio on Chromebooks. Below are some of the good tools I would suggest for this purpose. Please have a look and share with us what you think of them.

This is one of my favourite web tools for audio recording. Soundcloud is very easy to use and with once click you can start recording your own track. You can also upload sound tracks you have saved on your computer. Soundcloud also allows you to add comments to your audio tracks and share them with your students and friends.

2- Voice Recorder

Online Voice Recorder is a free simple application which records sound from microphone. After recording you can trim the sound and save it to your computer.


Vocaroo is another web based tool that allows users to easily make audio recordings and share them with others. Vocaroo does not even require a sign-up and to start recording your audio, just head over to Vocaroo main page, click on record and there you go. Audio recording made by Vocaroo can be downloaded or shared using an embed code.
4- Twisted Wave

TwistedWave is a full featured audio editor that allows you to:  Edit audio files from your computer or your Google Drive, apply effects,  save in one of many supported file formats, and export the file back to your disk, Google Drive or SoundCloud.
5- Mic Note

Mic Note is a great tool that allows you to both record audio and take notes in the same time. Perfect for Lectures, Meetings, Conferences, Interviews, Brainstormings, Quick Notes, To-Do Lists, Plannings and more.

6- Spreaker

Spreaker gives you the chance to take part in a rich community of audio creators broadcasting thousands of shows, tracks, and playlists. Listen to rising talents, or upload your own creations to share easily with blogs, sites, and social networks. Step up to the mic by using the professional and easy to use DJ console, allowing you to mix voice, music, and effects that you’ll find in the cloud.
