Editors' Review

Piezo for Mac successfully detects and records the output coming from your apps or built-in mic and allows you to save the recording as an MP3 or AAC file. This premium app comes with a demo mode and features a pleasing skeuomorphic design that resembles a physical recorder. Overall, the software works well but is limited to recording from only one source at a time.

When launched, Piezo for Mac presents you with its main interface and a detailed user manual. The default action is to record using the built-in mic, but a drop-down menu would allow you to choose any app instead. The biggest drawback of the app is the inability to record sound from both an app and the built-in mic at once, which decreases your productivity. In terms of other features, you can set a name, comment, and a file format for every recording, as well as choose between five audio qualities spanning both the MP3 and AAC formats. Other notable options are the play-thru capability and the setup of a custom output folder, which can be automatically opened after recording.

If you want to record the remote side of a voice conversation, or need a voice memo application, Piezo for Mac can get the job done without much hassle. The multitude of output qualities and the popular supported formats will save you from having to do additional conversions in order to share the media.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Piezo for Mac 1.2.4.
