I recently decided to use the the open source program Audacity on OS X to record audio content. It's very complete.

If you want to encode to MP3 format, you need the separate lameLib library, to be used with Audacity (it isn't included due to the patent restrictions on the mp3 format). Despite documentation to the contrary, on a PPC macintosh you need the version of the library that is specified only for older Audacity 1.2.6 even if you are using the newer Audacity 1.3.2. That is, ignore the documentation and download the older LameLib from http://spaghetticode.org/lame/, not libmp3lame-osx-universal-3.97.zip. (This will presumably be fixed at some point.)

Here is the result and an audio description of the bug.
