Step-by-step instructions for installing ACE

Our Audio Capture Engine, which we refer to as “ACE”, is a powerful audio handling component which enables audio capture with Audio Hijack on your Mac. ACE also provides audio capture abilities to several other Rogue Amoeba products, as well as many third-party licensee products.

The initial installation of ACE requires some quick setup. The built-in ACE installer found in our products walks you through this.

On this page, we detail the full, step-by-step sequence needed to install ACE on MacOS 13 (Ventura). This is a one-time process, and you'll be up and running in just a few minutes.

Note: In rare instances, a bug in MacOS prevents System Settings from offering the expected option. If you encounter this issue, follow our troubleshooting steps in this article.
