Select Sound source on mac OS.

To record an audio sound on the mac OS, you have to select the accurate source for the sound. Selecting the wrong source will lead to the wrong recording.
1. Go to the Apple menu and open Control Panels.
2. Open Monitors & Sound.
3. Click on the Sound icon.
4. Select any one of the input sources under Sound Monitoring Source.
5. Now you may choose sound quality, If you do not have any choices then it is not an issue, OS will use default one.
