What's new in Audio Hijack

Version 3.7.3:
  • Audio Capture Has Been Improved With ACE 11.2, Including Full Support for Catalyst Apps. The Audio Capture Engine (ACE) has been updated to 11.2, with many backend enhancements. Catalyst apps like “Voice Memos” are now fully supported, aggregate devices now work better, and many other small improvements have been made.
  • VoIP Capture Support for Several Additional Apps. Jamulus and Jami are now supported as a VoIP audio source, making it easy to record both halves of a conversation. Support for Cisco's various chat applications has also been improved.
  • Support for Chrome's “Progressive Web Apps”. Audio will now be captured from Chrome web apps, also known as progressive web apps.
  • The Broadcast block now supports receiving track titles from our own soundboard app Farrago, as well as MiX16 Pro and MiX16 Go.
  • The Volume block's VoiceOver labeling now correctly matches the visual interface, correcting an accessibility issue.
  • The “Mixed In Key” audio unit is now fully supported.
  • Audio Hijack is not yet compatible with MacOS 11 (Big Sur), but we expect to have an additional release with support in the very near future. Stay tuned!
  • Audio Hijack now requires MacOS 10.13 (High Sierra) or higher. If you're still on 10.12 (or lower), be sure to see our Legacy page.

I would give 5 stars if the UI was less flashy and full of unnecessary animations.

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

Audio Hikack is a very useful tool to record audio from almost any source. The interface is strange and you need a while to learn to use it. The big minus point is the price. This is really far too high for what it does. Therefore I can't really recommend this. Unfortunately there are no good alternatives. Someone?

3.5.5 Keeps asking for helper permission to change how it works. It is so annoying, I had to delete it. I still use the older version in High Sierra. It is so much more intuitive. I am so sorry, I just don't need a new learning curve to add to my stress level.

They were nice enough to send me a beta copy of AH for Mojave awhile back when I wrote to find out about its progress. It's worked just fine on all the Mojave public betas I've used.

Works as advertised. A bit too expensive though.

Will it record streaming audio as individual .mp3 files? Or will it save the entire stream as a single file?
