Just an FYI if you are looking for this version (Audio Hijack 226, not Pro version).
The MacUpdate link no longer works.

It is available from Rogue Ameoba on their 'Legacy' page: http://www.rogueamoeba.com/legacy/

Rogue Amoeba lists it as compatible with 10.4 Tiger, 10.5 Leopard, 10.6 Snow Leopard.

This product is no longer available. They only offer the Pro version on their site now and it's twice the money at $32 so if you have a simple need, such as just recording radio streams from iTunes you may want to find other solutions.

With all of the fuss going on abut iTunes 7 and problems with both OSS 3D and VolumeLogic, I'm surprised this program isn't getting more of its due. Not only does it provide me with a broad range of effects, but it also lets me choose which programs I want to have enhanced. OSS 3D is system-wide. VolumeLogic is currently iTunes only but appears to also be developing a system-wide approach. I don't want a system-wide approach; everything on my system slows down noticeably and significantly. With Audio Hijack, nothing slows down. Give this program a try! (The developer is also very responsive to e-mails.)

Audio Hijack is one of those programs that I don't use regularly, but which works well I need it to. Being able to record bits of online radio shows or the audio off Quicktime or RealPlayer movies and DVDs is a nice ability to have, and relatively easy to execute.
However, I was a bit confused with one thing when I first tried the program out. In order to "hijack" the audio of a program, you must add it to a list. When you click the "New" button at the top of the list to add a new program, an "Untitled Session" appears in the list, rather than opening a dialogue box to allow you to choose the program. Instead, you must use the Inspector window and click "Select" to get the program. It seems as though it would be less confusing and easier to use, if this step was skipped, but it's nothing major.
Audio Hijack does waht it says, and does it well.

I recently registered Audio Hijack. Not knowing much about audio software, I'm surprised at how easy it is to use Audio Hijack. It's a high-quality program.

It works great!

Thanks to the developers.

BTW, before I registered Audio Hijack, I emailed the developers, a couple of times, with a few questions. They promptly replied. Excellent customer service.

What an excellent application. Easy to use, very powerful. Record from file, app, URL, whatever! Great higher end features such as its collection of filters. This company puts out grade A software!

FANTASTIC! Works perfect. Got it with Roxio's Boom Box - it's the full version and I love it.

I just found this after trying out their Nicecast product, and I find it to be very useful. I've started capturing BBC streams overnight with it,and it works great. It's also a great price. Should I upgrade to Pro?

WireTap is a kernel extension, Audio Hijack is an application enhancer. Audio Hijack can't hose your entire system if something goes wrong.

Do not throw away your Audio Hijack 1.6.5 until you read this!

v 2.0 drops support for third party VST plug-ins and its own "crystality" effect. I have to admit I like the v2.0 interface and its ability to work with Eye TV, but calling a program with a reduced feature set an "upgrade" is somewhat misleading. Below is a web site with the older version.
