Major Updates in Audio Hijack 3

New Audio Hijack Interface

A Powerful New Visual Interface

First timers and veterans alike will find it a snap to capture audio with the new block-based audio pipeline. The pipeline provides a terrific view of exactly how your audio flows, so you can be sure to get exactly what you want. Simple pipelines of just two blocks can pull audio from an audio source and save it to a recording, but complex pipelines that capture audio from multiple sources, adjust it with multiple effects, and save it to multiple audio formats are also possible.

The pipeline is hardly the whole story. We worked to streamline the most common tasks, and setting up a new recording is quicker and more intuitive, while re-using a session takes just a few clicks. Full-screen mode helps you focus. Experimenting with your setup is easy and fun, so you can get the exact setup you need. For fast access to any controls, the handy Block popovers are a dream. All that and more gives you immense power, with minimal hassle.


Recording in Action

Tremendous Recording Improvements

At its heart, Audio Hijack is all about recording audio. This update brings support for recording to new audio formats. It includes improvements to the recording process that mean you never lose data, even if your Mac crashes. It offers sensible defaults recording options that don't require a degree in audio engineering. It's now even possible to record to multiple files at once!


Templates

Default Session Templates

The new Session templates provide a quick way to complete the most common tasks. Whether you need to record from a web browser or crank up the volume on a quiet laptop, you’ll be able to get going faster than ever. Just choose a template to open a new Session that's pre-configured for your use.

So Much More...

One Session, Many Recorders

Want to record to both the MP3 and AIFF formats at once? Need to record different sources in sync? Just add multiple Recorder blocks to get multiple files!

Bulletproof Audio Recording

Every recording format in Audio Hijack is now bulletproof. Even if your Mac crashes, your audio recordings are safe and secure.

Streamlined Recording Options

Make a quick selection from a half-dozen sensible defaults for recording. Of course, if you’re looking for more advanced recording options, they’re just a click away.

FLAC and HE-AAC Recording

Audiophiles will be thrilled to learn that Audio Hijack now supports recording directly in the lossless FLAC format, as well as high-efficiency AAC (HE-AAC).

Instant On, Instantly

The optional Instant On extra lets you capture audio from already-running apps, as well as all System Audio. Better still, Instant On no longer requires a restart to install or update.

Denoise, Declick, Dehum

Our custom Denoise, Declick, and Dehum audio effects will help you clean up and improve dirty audio. They're powered by audio technology licensed from the experts at iZotope.

Simplified Audio Effects

We’ve strove to make audio effects simpler and more attractive. There's no need to be scared! Play around to get the exact sound you want.

Audio Block Presets

Saving presets for an Equalizer is obvious, but why stop there? You can save configurations for almost every Block, then instantly use them in other Sessions.

Accessible for All

We know thousands of visually impaired people use Audio Hijack. We worked hard to make it fully accessible with Apple’s VoiceOver.
