Stream to the Internet With Audio Hijack

The Mac's premier audio recording utility is now a powerful broadcasting tool as well!

Boston, MA - Rogue Amoeba's latest update to Audio Hijack adds a novel ability: internet radio streaming. Audio Hijack 3.5 brings a new Broadcast block that makes it easy to stream any audio to Shoutcast and Icecast servers. It's perfect for running livecasts of podcast recordings, as well as live streaming DJ sets, and powering all types of internet radio from online streams for terrestrial stations all the way down to individual hobbyists.

Each day, tens of thousands of people capture and record sound with Audio Hijack's intuitive Audio Grid. Its pipeline-style view shows exactly how audio is flowing. Using the new Broadcast block, any audio chain can now send audio to an online streaming server, allowing listeners around the world to tune in. It's simple, straight-forward, and seriously powerful.

Of course, the new Broadcast block offers plenty of features for broadcasting experts to appreciate.

Multiple Server Types; Multiple Stream Support

The Broadcast block can stream audio to Shoutcast 2, Shoutcast 1, and Icecast 2 streaming servers. Advanced streamers can even use multiple Broadcast blocks in one session to create multiple audio streams at once. That's perfect for high and low quality broadcasts, as well as streaming in multiple audio formats.

MP3 and AAC Streaming

Stream in either the popular MP3 streaming format or the more modern AAC streaming format. When it's streaming AAC, the Broadcast block will intelligently work to achieve the best quality by switching to the superior-sounding HE-AAC when possible.

Powerful Track Titles

Internet radio makes it possible to embed useful track titles for listeners to read. The Broadcast block can be configured to automatically read track titles from supported sources, or to add manually entered track titles. It's completely customizable, and completely cool.

More To Explore in Audio Hijack 3.5

To help users get started broadcasting, Audio Hijack 3.5 includes a new Template, for “Internet Radio”. It's a great starting point for users to experiment with broadcasting in just a few clicks.

This update also includes another new block, Input Switch. With an Input Switch in the middle of a chain, users can toggle between two inputs with one click. When the switch is clicked, audio will fade from one source to another. This is great for broadcasts that use intro or ending music, as well as folks who want to preview how audio effects sound, and more.

These updates open up many additional uses for Audio Hijack, and we can't wait to see (and hear) how folks make use of it all!
