Problem adding voice recorder plugin

It's been awhile since I've used the voice recorder plugin, so I need some help figuring this out. I'm pretty sure the last time I used this plugin was on a Windows, and now I'm programming on a Mac.

When I went to download the plugin from here (, it mentions there's 3 versions. I can't figure out which version is for Macs. I downloaded v0.15 and added the folders where I think they should be, but they plugin is still not showing up when I open OS.

Also, the paths look like this. I just pasted the two folders into the plugins folder.


  • Hi,

    I don't know for sure, but I doubt whether the plugin (irrespective of operating system) is compatible with the current version of Opensesame. As far as I know (@Daniel correct me if I am wrong), nobody has worked on that plugin for several years already. That said, I don't know how much trouble it would be to update the plugin, or, at least, use its code to create functions that you can use for your own experiment.
    Would be a worth a try I'd think.

    Good luck,


  • I'm starting to sound like a broken record, but I really need to fix this plugin. It is built on top of pymedia, which is a library of which the support and development have stopped years ago. OpenSesame contains the facilities to built a better and working sound recorder, but I have lacked the time to work on this.
    Nevertheless, questions about recording sound in OpenSesame have been frequently asked on the forum and if you search its posts a bit, you will find solutions with code that can be copy-pasted into inline code items.
