evental goal is to use audo voice track for FCE, but want to lay down an audio track for a placeholder to measure length (time) and make some queues... any suggestions? Garage Band or something else.
Try the free multi track audio recorder/editor Audacity.
(Is that King Harbor, Marina Del Rey, New Port Harbor or something up north...?
Fast and easy down and dirty... Quicktime X... Menu... File... New Audio Recording.
not sure what Quicktime X is.
does it come with basic S/W package or does it require a download or purchase. thanks
You can do it with PhotoBooth too. Create your recording. Drop the video into iMovie and extract the audio.
The best way to do it would be to use quicktime. You can use spotlight to search the program.
After that, click file and then select New Audio Recording. I find the mic to be pretty sensitive, so make sure all is quiet.

Audacity and Quicktime are both great programs.
As the others say, both Audacity and Quicktime will do the job.
Personally I prefer Audacity as it's rather more versatile (it's free, so no harm in giving it a try).
Ok i have recorded a little sample with both Audicity and with QT.
it look like either will serve my 3 purposes 1) see how long copy is. 2) have something to put down in FCE and 3 send to my VO guy so he has a "go-by"
Good to hear they'll do what you require. Best of luck with the projects.
