NOW HEAR THIS! - Rogue Amoeba Software Releases Audio Hijack 1.5!

Princeton, NJ - Rogue Amoeba has been working day and night to bring out the next update to its groundbreaking application, Audio Hijack. Audio Hijack enhances the audio output of any Cocoa or Carbon application on your Mac. Use it to add professional-quality DSP effects to any application which outputs audio content and to record audio output from all your applications.

Key New Features in 1.5:

  • Timers - Use the new Timers to record net streams which air at inconvenient times
  • Detached Plugin Windows for fast access to plugin settings
  • Target files as well as applications
  • VU and Menu Bar Meters, as well as Oscilloscope
  • Localized in 4 different languages (A HUGE thanks to all of our translators!)

What can you use Audio Hijack for? Add an equalizer to programs such as RealOne, DVD Player and Windows Media Player. Use the Low Pass Filter to increase the audio quality on any internet radio streams. Turn any application into an alarm clock with the new Timers feature. Use professional VST (Virtual Studio Technology) plugins in any application. Enhance and manipulate your audio, your way.

Audio Hijack's other superpower is its incredible recording ability - any sound you play through Audio Hijack can be digitally captured to an AIFF file, for later listening. Grab game sounds or rip audio from a flash movie! Convert from ANY audio format to AIFF - Real, Windows Media Files, AAC or anything else. Best of all, with the new Timers feature, you can use Audio Hijack as an "audio VCR", to record streams anytime, even when you're not around!
