RadioShift v1.6.2


RadioShift makes recording internet audio streams absolutely simple.

The basic idea is to "subscribe" to a stream according to start time and length.

Manually, you must provide a streaming audio source, add any optional information (title, artist, genre), and schedule (date, time, length).

Automatically, select Radio Guide, look for station or artist or subject, choose one, select "Subscribe", and, the title and schedule are instantly entered into a new RadioShift Subscription.

RadioShift's Radio Guide and Subscription automatic scheduling is quite possibly the easiest subscription in software, today.

RadioShift developers at Rogue Amoeba are superior and work constantly to improve RadioShift.


It would be nice to change RadioShift's naming convention of the saved audio files.

MP3 Trimmer has many features, it's very easy to use, it is excellent value, and, it's as stable as a rock.

MP3 Trimmer joins multiple MP3 files.

AHP2 recorded a 4.3 hour event, but it broke the recording into two parts.

MP3 Trimmer has "MP3 Joiner". Open MP3 Trimmer, select "Tools">"MP3 Joiner", add files, check the order, add as much or as little info as desired (for the output file), select "Select Target Folder" and name, and, a few moments later, you have a single (joined) MP3!

If you do any audio editing, MP3 Trimmer is a must have.

Audio Hijack Pro is versatile, reliable and stable, and quickly customizable. Rogue Amoeba tech support is the best in the business.


I mostly use AHP to time-shift internet streams.


AHP allows you to record anything you can hear on your Mac into a broad spectrum of user-customizeable formats.

Install SoundFlower (free) to AHP and you can divert multiple simultaneous inputs to multiple simultaneous outputs.

I use AHP to time shift, but I also use it as an tuner-timer. When scheduled, AHP hijacks a stream and sends it to Airfoil. Airfoil sends the stream to Apple Airport Express-hosted speakers throughout the house, garage, and patio. (AHP is so robust that you can configure AHP differently: AHP can use iTunes to send the stream to Airport Expresses directly.)

AHP continues to spirit of Apple: AHP can do anything!

Reliable and Stable:

AHP is a "set and forget" application. You can set AHP to record and leave for weeks. The only worry is filling up your hard drive.

AHP never crashes of its own free will. Once or twice a year, Mac OS X may crash AHP, but the AHP Schedule Helper restarts AHP.

From nothing to scheduled in 60 seconds or less:

My friend announced that he will play a special, radio program on one day. I wanted to record it. I selected AHP2, added a new session (I should have copied a previous session.), entered the URL, selected the source (iTunes), added date and time and length, and AHP2 was ready. I tested it. Perfect. I selected the recording format to AAC. I need to add the tags, but, hey, that's trivial.

Tech Support:

Rogue Amoeba's tech support rivals or soundly beats the best in the business.

I had trouble with audio lag in an older Mac (skipping). Even though the problem was not theirs, RA was extremely courteous and helpful and developed a solution that I still use.


AHP2 is amazingly robust, and, absolutely, positively indispensible! And, you can go from nothing to scheduled in 60 seconds or less.

Warning: SRS iWow is a murder-suicide program.

When Apple upgrades iTunes, iWow fails. iWow starts first, and, generates a failed-to-load pop-UNDER. Unfortunately, since iWow started first, it takes precedence over the new Apple iTunes license agreement. It's an infinite lock-out loop: You can't accept the Apple license, and, you can't dismiss the iWow-failed pop-under.

The only workaround is to remove iWow.

This is a classic example of extremely poor programming, or, it is a murder-suicide program. Since this is the second version of iWow with this 'feature' (We call it an intentional 'bug'.) (They have been told about it, repeatedly.), one can only conclude that it is malicious programming.

Aside from that, I can't tell that iWow does anything for the music I play.

I do not think it is worth the money for the intermittent use and the every-iTunes-upgrade problems.

I am extremely happy that SRS iWow worked on your machines.

I should have added that this problem recurred on an iMac G4 800MHz (Flat Panel) 10.4.11, a Titanium G4 800MHz 10.4.11, and, an iMac G5 2.1GHz 10.4.11, after the recent iTunes update, and, on all previous iTunes updates.

Thank you,

RadioShift is outstanding.

RadioShift works automatically and painlessly.

You may search their list of audio streams or add your own, and, set up your machine to DVR with your choice of audio format.

RadioShift merges MP3 player, WMP, RealPlayer, RadioShark, and QuickTime to work seamlessly. Enter an mms or http or radio channel and RS does the rest.

RadioShift keeps the strengths of Audio Hijack Pro but avoids the complexities.

For a new product RadioShift is much more robust and bug-free than almost any other I've seen.

RadioShift integrates perfectly with your audio editor or Rogue Amoeba's Fission. Rogue Amoeba's Airfoil picks up RadioShift effortlessly and broadcasts to your Airport Expresses.

I highly recommend RadioShift as the missing link in your Apple digital media center.
