TapeDeck celebrates National Day of Listening

On the Friday after Thanksgiving, November 28, 2008, sit down with family and friends to share stories—and record them for future generations—as part of the National Day of Listening.

To celebrate this innovative project, we’re offering a 20% discount on TapeDeck, the powerful and fun audio recording tool for Mac OS X. With its foolproof recording interface and retro tape-recorder style, TapeDeck is perfect for capturing stories, songs, and anything else worth sharing aloud. And through November 30th, you can purchase TapeDeck for just US$20.

To get started:

  1. Download the TapeDeck software from tapedeckapp.com.
    (TapeDeck requires a computer running Mac OS X version 10.5 and higher.)
  2. Register using this link to receive 20% off this week.
    (Discount available worldwide, even if Thanksgiving is not.)
  3. Gather around your Mac and press the red “REC” button to get started.
    (Leftover turkey sandwiches optional.)

For more information and inspiration, please see: the National Day of Listening website, particularly their Do-It-Yourself Guide (printable PDF) and FAQ; stories already recorded by many NPR on-air personalities; WordPress blogs related to NDoL; and StoryCorps, the creators of the NDoL project.

Happy recording and happy holidays!
