How to Record Computer Sound and Your Voice at the Same Time on Mac

As we all know, Mac computers never allow you to directly record system sound due to privacy concerns. When recording computer sound and microphone, we need to resort to the help of two tools: QuickTime and Soundflower. Or use a third-party software named Screenflow.

Method 1. Use Screenflow Record Computer Sound with Microphone on Mac

ScreenFlow is an all-in-one screen recorder and video editor designed for Mac. With this tool, you can record screen on your Mac with sound input from the microphone. If there is an extra audio driver installed, you can even record internal sound on Mac.
