What is the best way to record an interview with a Mac?

Hi! We’ve been conducting phone interviews for our website and the way that we currently do it works, but it’s killer on understanding what the interviewee is saying. Basically, we make the call to the interviewee on a regular phone, when they answer, they’re placed on speakerphone, then we record the interview that way, but the interviewee sounds like they’re in a can on the recording – very tin-ny and very high-pitched. Is there a free, effective way to make the calls from a Mac and record the interview that way? I’d love to hear any suggestions! Thanks for the help!

    Makeuseof has featured this service :
    If you are in calling a US number from a US mumber.

    http://recordableapp.com

    Free/affordable service.

    You can listen to your recordings from any number for free.
    If you have want to access your recording online, including unlimited playback and MP3 downloads, these is a small one-time fee.

    (which also you can avoid by listening to it by a nokia (c3-00 or 6300) any simple phone which provides call recording. then you can record your calls and upload to the site.)

    Do you know which model does your interviewer have ?

    Nokia basic entry level java based phones provide call recording, without any app, just go to options and record your call, until the call or the memory space or the battery ends.

    I'm not aware of any apps that can record calls on a cell phone. Can you suggest any for an iPhone or Android phone?

    Why dont you conduct interviews using a cell phone.
    Call them from a cell phone, and record it using the recording feature of your cell phone.
    Most cell phones today can record calls,
    Upload the recorded audio to your site.
    the quality will be better.
