Audio Hijack overview

Audio Hijack (was Audio Hijack Pro) drastically changes the way you use audio on your computer, giving you the freedom to listen to audio when you want and how you want. Record and enhance any audio with Audio Hijack - it's the cornerstone of your digital audio experience.

Audio Hijack will allow you to record any application's audio, from Internet streams to DVD audio and everywhere in between. If your machine can play it, Audio Hijack can record it. And that's not all - Audio Hijack will also enhance any audio, unsing industry-standard VST and AudioUnit audio effects to make your music sound incredible. Record. Enhance. Enjoy!

What’s new in version 4.4.2

  • Corrections for Default Settings for VoIP apps in the New “Audio Device Selection” Section of the “Application” Block. This update fixes a critical issue where attempting to capture from a VoIP app like Zoom or Skype could result in no audio being recorded. Due to an incorrect migration of existing sessions from Audio Hijack 4.4.0 or earlier, setups where a VoIP app was playing to a non-default output would not see any audio.
  • Audio Hijack now correctly defaults the “Audio Device Selection” option to “Capture audio played to all output devices” for VoIP applications. Thanks to Jason Snell for the heads-up on this issue.
  • The “What’s New” notes will once again properly display on the first launch of a new version. This fixes a regression introduced in version 4.4.1.
  • Audio Hijack 4.4.2 Is for MacOS 14.4 and Higher. This variant of Audio Hijack supports MacOS 14.4 and higher. On MacOS 11 through 14.3.1, a different variant is automatically used, with no action required on your part.

I made a mistake in spelling my email when I purchased Audio Hijack. When I tried to correct it, I never came anywhere near getting a person to correct the mistake. All I get is "Paddle" a bot with yesterday's technological expertise. I have wasted an hour on this bot, and no results yet. If you want support for this product, don't count on Paddle. I have used this software for yours, and there used to be someone answering the occasional question. Now I have purchased the latest version, I find that all the real people have disappeared. Don't rely on this group if you are going to have questions (or even have to change you email)!

When it comes to products of rogueamoeba, I never think twice before upgrading. This company has always developed handy applications that I use in my daily work and am extremely pleased with their performance. I’ve found the new Audio Hijack very intuitive and its performance has improved by leaps and bounds. Recording is now a breeze with the new presets of its main functions and meets many users’ needs without further tweaking. Last but not least, the dreaded icon of its precious version has been modified into an elegant icon that makes it more feasible. This is surely one of the best upgrades I’ve ever seen and highly recommend it. Fariborz AMIRSHAHI – Verona (Italy)

When Nicecast ended, Audio Hijack was recommended and so I bought it. I just assumed it would work like Nicecast but it doesn't and you'll need a separate streaming app to share your broadcasts. I'm frankly disappointed and feel a bit misled. I'm now using Audiomovers because it's simple like Nicecast was and works right out of the box.

An audio capture app that doesn't capture audio. For whatever reason it just doesn't work on my mac. Well, it worked once. Now it won't record anything after setting up a new session and pressing the record button. I updated it, rebooted, followed their quite simple tutorial. Nothing.

Does Audio Hijack no longer allow Quick Time Player 10.5 to play DRM files?
