  1. I made one minor but important change to the script-- now it changes the output setting from a .mov to "Audio Only" so a .m4a -- this way when you drag it into Evernote you can actually press play. Cheers! tell application "QuickTime Player" activate set x to new audio recording start x delay 1 set lastLength to duration of x delay 1 set newLength to duration of x try repeat while lastLength is not equal to newLength delay 1 set lastLength to newLength set newLength to duration of x end repeat end try -- display alert name of document 1 set v to file of front document set audioNotePath to "<INSERT PATH HERE>" set thePath to POSIX path of audioNotePath set dateVariable to do shell script "date '+%m.%d.%y'" set timeVariable to do shell script "date +'%l.%M %p'" tell x to activate delay 1 tell application "System Events" keystroke "w" using {command down} delay 1 keystroke thePath delay 1 keystroke return delay 1 keystroke "AudioNote " keystroke dateVariable keystroke " " keystroke timeVariable delay 1 click pop up button "Format:" of group 1 of sheet 1 of window "Untitled" of application process "QuickTime Player" of application "System Events" delay 1 key code 125 delay 1 keystroke return delay 1 keystroke return delay 1 open thePath end tellend tell

  6. MAC OS X - SOLUTION TIME! I also was upset by the dreadful audio quality. I'd record a song and not even be able to hear my chords or lyrics! So I found some solutions online to automatically record and save audio with a single hotkey, and now I simply drag it into the note I'm working on. Mind you, this script records using Quicktime Pro's "New Audio Recording" feature. But there are alternate solutions for people with other software. Try this post for instance. I did a lot of tweaking to make it better for evernote. Simply open up the Automator app, click the Services icon and press Choose. From the "Service receives" dropdown at the top, choose "No input" in "any application" -- then in the search bar to the left write "run applescript", then double click Run AppleScript and replace the code in it to the following: tell application "QuickTime Player" activate set x to new audio recording tell x to start delay 1 set lastLength to duration of x delay 1 set newLength to duration of x try repeat while lastLength is not equal to newLength delay 1 set lastLength to newLength set newLength to duration of x end repeat end try -- display alert name of document 1 set v to file of front document set audioNotePath to "<YOUR CUSTOM PATH HERE>" set thePath to POSIX path of audioNotePath set dateVariable to do shell script "date '+%m.%d.%y'" set timeVariable to do shell script "date +'%l.%M %p'" tell x to activate delay 1 tell application "System Events" keystroke "w" using {command down} delay 1 keystroke thePath delay 1 keystroke return delay 1 keystroke "AudioNote " keystroke dateVariable keystroke " " keystroke timeVariable keystroke return delay 1 open thePath end tellend tell So, the first thing you need to do is create a folder somewhere to keep your audio notes organized. I made a folder in documents called Audio Notes-- so for example instead of <YOUR CUSTOM PATH HERE> I wrote /Users/danscott/Documents/Audio Notes/ You can also customize how the file is named by changing the keystrokes at the end. I made mine save the file as "AudioNote 07.03.15 10.58 AM" - but you can make yours anything. If you want to change how the date is displayed: check out this post and replace parameters in the timeVariable and dateVariable. I then made it "open thePath" at the end so you can easily drag the file into evernote. The only other step, after saving the Service you created in Automator (the file can be found in Users/YourName/Library/Services if you ever want to re-open it or edit the code) - is to add a hotkey to automatically run the script. Open System Preferences > Keyboard > Keyboard Shortcuts -- choose Services from the sidebar and scroll down till you find your service. Just double click the right side of it and add a unique hotkey that's not likely used by other applications. That way you can record any time! Good luck to all you evernoters! And I hope they fix this basic feature very soon.
