Audio Hijack 3.2: Features & A Friend

Audio Hijack 3.2 offers great new features and a great new companion.

Boston, MA - We're not slowing down when it comes to updates to Audio Hijack, our popular audio recorder. This free update brings several key new features to the app, as well as a companion eBook!

Time Shift Popover

After hearing from users (including prominent Mac writers like Jason Snell and Serenity Caldwell) who'd begun using the Time Shift block to aid them in transcribing, we set about making transcribing audio even easier. The Time Shift Block now features a powerful popover, seen above, which can be made to float above other windows for easy access from any application. As well, global hotkeys enable access to Time Shift's controls without even using the mouse. If you're transcribing audio, Audio Hijack and Time Shift will make your day!

The Sync and Peak/RMS Blocks

Audio Hijack users will also find two brand new Blocks in version 3.2. First up is the new Sync Block, which adds a precise delay to any audio. While Sync is similar in concept to Time Shift, it works at much smaller scale: up to 1000 ms (1 second) per Block. It's perfect for syncing an audio stream with video that's lagging behind.

Next up, the new Peak/RMS Meters provide a fully-calibrated visual of audio, showing both RMS and Peak Levels, as well as a helpful clipping indicator. They're great for the precise audio analysis podcasters crave.

The last big feature to mention is shareable Sessions, which enable users to easily share their custom settings with one another. Just export a Session by highlighting it in the Home window and selecting “Export Session” from the Session menu. Audio Hijack will save a .ahsession file containing the exact setup for the Session. The exported Session can be emailed to a friend, published on a website, or shared however you like. When another Audio Hijack user opens the file, the Session will be automatically imported into their copy. It's a great way to show off custom setups!

There's so much more in Audio Hijack 3.2, including many smaller improvements as well as a few squashed bugs. As always, the best way to experience Audio Hijack is to take the app for a spin. Downlod the free trial right from our site to get started!
