Hi there!

In response to your question: Is there any difference in sound between MP3 and WAV, I would like to share my own experience with you. Indeed, the audio quality of WAV and MP3 files differs. Although they require more space, WAV files are uncompressed and store audio in a higher quality. Because MP3 files are compressed, they can have smaller file sizes, but the compression—especially at lower bitrates—may result in some audio quality loss.

As for the audio recorders, I recommend an excellent screen and audio recorder for you: EaseUS RecExperts. It can be compatible with Windows and macOS systems, so you do not need to worry about the compatibility issue. You can download this audio recording software to have a try!
