Version 1.2.2 is out - looks like it was released on March 29th 2013 if the date of the DMG installer is anything to go but

I'm posting this review mostly just to bring to any potential purchaser's attention the fact that per-app recording has still not been implemented, greatly reducing the usefulness of this app. It doesn't look like it'll receive a fix for this, either. Their other software is looking pretty neglected too.

Best just to avoid this company's products wholesale until evidence appears that they're making an effort again.

Very happy the app was finally updated to support Mountain Lion. It took a while but it is back to being a great app. I hope Ambrosia continues to support it.

While this app is still being sold, it looks like future updates have been abandoned. If you want an upgrade/update you'll have to purchase WireTap Anywhere. WTS is still a great program in Lion.

I've had enough of Wiretap Studio & Ambrosia Software. They have not supported this application through Mac OS 10.7 and now with Mac OS 10.8 it's the same story. I will not buy any other software from this company. I would advise any potential buyers to look at alternative apps out from other companies that manage to update their software - steer well clear of Ambrosia Software.

We're almost at Mountain Lion, and all their site can say is "we're working on it." Not encouraging. I use this program for its live preview function. How long has Lion been out now? They're still working on it?

There are "known issues" with Lion - I can't make it work at all with Lion, tried lots of audio interfaces, aggregated devices etc. to no avail. Don't buy this if you running Lion!

Works really well for me but has one glaringly obvious fault - no way to customise the list order in a library. I would have thought this to be a basic essentail

I emailed Ambrosia Software and this is what they said:

Thank you for the feedback! You can currently sort your recordings by clicking on the column headers. The library is being rewritten for WireTap Studio 2.0 and will have a lot of great improvements in that next version. If you would like to be notified of future releases, you can join our mailing list at . Hope this helps :)

I had not used wiretap studio since OS 10.8 and needed it this morning. It sent my iMac 27" i7 into a kernel panic.

Wish an update would come quickly.

I really like the interface of WireTap Studio and its utility is also satisfying. That said, I've noticed that when I use it to capture any input on my MacBook Pro there is a delay of at least a second or two, sometimes more.

Ordinarily this wouldn't be much of an issue, as you would set something to "Tap" and let it record. If the levels don't coincide with the actual audio coming out of the speakers it's no big deal right? (Sarcasm)

Well I use, or rather would like to use, WireTap Studio to capture audio from my Police Scanner. Watching the level bar fluctuate and than waiting for actual audio to come out from the speakers is annoying. Sound Studio and Audio Hijack Pro both correctly function in this regard and for the life of me I can't figure out why the "Tool" meant for this job has a delay. I've run all three applications at the same time and the other two correctly output in line with the scanner's output.

This really bothers me because I prefer WireTap Studio to the afore mentioned applications. It drives me nuts when I switch cities on my scanner and I have to wait a few seconds to hear the tone associated with the switch.

I have a 2.8Ghz MacBook Pro with 4GB of Memory running 10.6.2 on a very fast SSD, there is no good reason for this to happen on my machine. Especially in light of the fact that every other tool I tried doesn't have this issue.

I'm tired of using audio editors or one of your direct competitors applications (ugly & clunky in comparison to WireTap) to listen/capture from my scanner, please Ambrosia fix your application!

Can anyone explain the difference between WireTap Studio and WireTap Anywhere?

The easiest way to explain the difference is that WireTap Studio is a complete system for capturing your recordings, editing them to the exact way you want them to sound and a transferring application. WireTap Anywhere is located in your System Preferences window, and is something that allows you to create virtual audio devices. Meaning you can select a multitude of audio inputs, be it microphones to applications such as skype, and harness them into a single audio source, which can then be used by existing software. No need to have the overly complicated mixing board for 5 microphones, then try to input the sound from iChat, Skype, and iTunes. With Wiretap Anywhere, you can simply select all these, create your own virutal device and that will appear as a single item in your softwares audio input.

We offer video turtorials on both products on the Ambrosia Website. Also, both products have a trial period so you can try them both and learn the difference with a more hands on approach.

Even better, patent-pending LivePreviewâ„¢ technology enables you to preview your audio before you capture it, saving you lots of time and stress. No longer will you need to record multiple bitrates and formats and then compare them side by side. Change the bitrate, compression format, or even add Audio Unit effects, and hear the changes in real time - before you record!
