Love this app. I use it to record audios from Internet and elsewhere and things are pretty good right now. Unlike other recording apps I’ve used in previous days, I think I’m gonna keep it for a while.

Causes loss of sound in Spotify. Example:Use Audio Hijack Pro to record from Spotify and,after the first track has played in Spotify,subsequent tracks queued have no audio. Switch off Audio Hijack Pro,and Spotify's audio resumes.

Yes, it's been working for me just fine. 10.9, MBP Retina. You should probably contact the developer.

The "Instant On" component of 2.10.8 is incompatible with OS X Mavericks. So until it gets updated you need to quit and relaunch open applications in order to record sound in OS 10.9.0.

This is what happens when a shareware developer relies on third-party plug-ins (instant On).

There is a beta version available here:

That seems to work well with OS 10.9, so far.

I have been using Audio Hijack's built-in FX to jack up my system volume, that stopped working in the release version, but the beta restores it.

@Satcomer Instant on = 3rd party plugin? As far as I know it's from the same developer. After it patches system audio compatibility issues after a system update are to be expected.

I love this app, and I've owned a license for many years. But the Lion-only requirement is a most unwelcome deprecation. I suspect it's one that's largely driven by OS X's (i.e., Apple's) own increasingly user-UNfriendly program of forced obsolescence, but that doesn't make it any less irritating when a trusted developer like Rogue Amoeba becomes part of the problem.

OR it could have been entirely the developer's choice based on under-the-hood changes they wanted to use. Apple does not "force" developers to stop supporting OSes three (and sometimes more) releases back. It's their choice for whatever reason.

So get of your rag-on-Apple soapbox and go ask the developers if you actually want to know the answer (which any sensible person would have done as Step One, incidentally). Or is it more important to spew than to know?

Ravenbrain, those of us with work to do and no iDevices get it done on Snow Leopard. I too am horrified to see Rogue Amoeba abandon Snow Leopard and it's directly a result of Apple making it very difficult to release programs compatible with Snow Leopard (the current development tools won't let any created application work on Snow Leopard).

And the fanbois show up...

Uncoy, or sh!t for brains. I get work done too on Mavericks.

Get with the times already or go use Windoze.

And really, you are HORRIFIED to see that they dropped supposed to an obsolete OS? Seriously? That sure is horrific. I guess they don't share you opinion on SL.

This app has been brilliant up until this new update (2.10.6), but now it keeps crashing when I record in Spotify. It works fine with RDIO and Safari but when I finish a recording session in Spotify and click the record and Hijack buttons I get an error message and it crashes and has to be reopened.

This never happened with the previous incarnations so just wondered whether others are having this problem too.

BTW, the music file is saved OK but there's something buggy happening and I'd like to iron it out.

This is software I have been using since it's inception. There has been a few times when I required assistance; the support was prompt and friendly [somewhat rare these days]. It does, very well, just what is claimed and is well documented.

Upgrades have been timely and well done.

You won't be disappointed.

Latest reports are that the current version of Instant Hijack conflicts with Apple's Security Update 2008-002, preventing some printers from working, and interfering with some ssh operations. Either don't install Security Update 2008-002 until Instant Hijack/AHP is updated, or remove Instant Hijack after installing the current version of AHP, until it's been updated.

Sorry to not cite sources. Mine was the Macfixit main page for today (Mar 19 2007), but articles on the Macfixit home page become accessible only by paid subscription after a few days (a day or two?), so I didn't want to have people trying to look up that citation several days from now, and being told they couldn't access it.

Audio Hijack exhibits a strange behaviour on my iMac where when it is in the middle of HiJacking a program it doesn't allow the screen to turn off via the Energy Saver schedule. Anyone else have this problem and/or a fix?

"This is a known issue. Due to limitations in OS X and some hardware, AHP currently needs to prevent screen sleep to ensure proper recording. If it's possible with your computer and screen, you may be able to dim the screen manually while you're recording, although this is certainly not ideal."

I fully understand where you are coming from, I don't like knowing that my PM with a 23" Apple screen is always "on" when I'm at work and my system is recording internet radio shows.

Though now with my mini I have a ViewSonic monitor that can be turned off independent of the Mac.

Ferruccio Busoni:

My 23" Apple display on my PM G5 is the old ADC style (plastic bezel), it doesn't have an independent power plug...

For those using Audio Hijack Pro, who have the plastic bezel style Apple LCDs or have a built in display (iMacs, MacBook / Pro), can't "turn off" their screen. However, MacBook / Pro can dim their LCD so that the backlight isn't active.

I use my Intel Mac mini connected to a ViewSonic monitor to record online radio shows when I'm at work, because I can manually turn off the LCD, something I can't do with my old style Apple 23".

You can record one side of iChat (the received side), not the sending side.

To record both sides, stay tuned...
