Sure. You'll need audio recording software. I'd use Quicktime Pro since
I've already paid for it.

But I think you can record using Audacity
(http://audacity.sourceforge.net/), and it's free.

There is no way to pipe the audio directly into MESS. 

BTW: There is no reason to record 44.1 khz stero for this. 11.025 khz
mono would be fine.

Thanks for the kind words. Are you really using an old MacMESS or are
you using a newer SDLMESS for Mac OS X?
