WireTap Anywhere provides you with a professional virtual audio patchbay for your Mac. Any program on your computer that generates audio can show up as a virtual audio input device, allowing you to record or process it in any other application that works with audio.

For instance, you could record both sides of a Skype or iChat conversation directly into Peak for editing... or go the other way, and pipe the audio output of ProTools over Skype or iChat for a friend to listen to.

With WireTap Anywhere, your applications are instantly transformed into audio inputs. Record

I am a podcaster and I recently purchased 3 USB microphones for my studio. I use Garageband for my podcast and it was an absolute nightmare to get all microphones (as well as additional system inputs) to work simultaneously. I spent countless hours trying to configure this set up using the Mac Audio/MIDI audio set-up and it would start out working fine, but after several minutes of recording it would revert back to a disturbing clicking/static sound which would destroy my recordings. It all had to do with syncronizing with the word clock, but I eventually had enough. I wrote to Blue Microphones Support to see if they had any suggestion for getting around this and they recommended Wiretap software. At first I tried Wiretap Studio, but I could not figure out a way to combine more than two audio inputs. Then I discovered Wiretap Anywhere and I was able to combine my 3 USB mics, Skype, and an auxiliary input from my audio mixer. It has been absolutely amazing! It works as advertised and I cannot wait to do my next show using all my microphones. The price tag is a bit steep, but considering I have wasted days fumbling around with this I think it is worth it.

Thanks, Ambrosia!

ROD76 I guess the developer heard you, it just took about a year! Given that this application was featured in a very recent bundle of applications sold to the public, now let's see if there is any continuity in different version, with different names, for upgrading. Is it free upgrade or a pay for upgrading?

WireTap Anywhere is not a replacement or upgrade from WireTap Studio. What you are looking at is a new product added to the WireTap Family. WireTap Studio is it's own self contained application for capturing the best quality audio, offer filters, editing, saving and transferring.

While there are a great many similarities between the software, WireTap Anywhere is to be thought of as not a recording application but an audio bridge between the software that the users are currently familiar with and their equipment and other applications on the Mac itself.

I hope this clears up any confusion, and as always you can check the Ambrosia website for more answers to your frequently asked questions.

Great piece of software, love it.
(But it seems to damage ScreenFlow. :-/)

This is bothersome to me, I assume this product is a niche tool for audio professionals (the price sort of dictates that premise). However, I believe there is some unnecessary ambiguity involving the naming or versioning of this product.

My best guess would be a simple:

WireTap
WireTap Pro
WireTap Studio
WireTap Anywhere

Using the forenamed assumption would require some sort of upgrade path, which there doesn't seem to be.

I'm hoping the developer will read this, comment, and hopefully clarify this product.

We are sorry for the confusion that might have happened from our naming scheme. WireTap was replaced with WireTap Pro, that was indeed it's successor, likewise WireTap Studio then replaced "Pro". Because not only was it an improvement over the original incarnations, but many of the new added features to this family of products became the foundation for what we would like to have in all our audio product. With that the WireTap Family was truly born. WireTap Studio, and WireTap Anywhere. Both of these products are now under the "WireTap Family" name, neither is a replacement or upgrade for the other. If you have any further questions please feel free to check out the Ambrosia Web boards.

Ow! Audio Hijack Pro is like 25% the cost of this program. What makes WireTap worth the extra $$?

WireTap Anywhere isn't a product that can be compared to Audio Hijack Pro. Ambrosia's WireTap Studio is a similar product that out performs the competition, and is significantly cheaper than WireTap Anywhere. Both of our products offer a free trial, so, please take a moment to download it and test it out for yourself.

i got it to work, but i had to install wiretap pro after installing wiretap.

the reason it wasn't working is because it uses a kernel extension that is incompatible with tiger. wiretap pro has an updated version.

the one thing that pro (and audio hijack) have that i want (in a free product) is the ability to record both the mic and mac audio at the same time.

oh well, i suppose i can record with sound studio at the same time. :)

Is this removed now as Ambrosia Software offers WireTap Pro? I can't find WireTap on their freebies page (http://www.ambrosiasw.com/utilities/freebies/).

I'm answering myself here... It seems all the free stuff is in WireTap Pro, this is what Ambrosia writes in a VT comment:

"Everything that was free in the older, free WireTap continues to be free in WireTap Pro. You can use it to your heart's content to record AIFF recordings, and never pay for it."
There are currently no troubleshooting comments. If you are experiencing a problem with this app, please post a comment.
