A stylish macOS application that offers you the possibility to record the audio output of various sources in just a few seconds.
Audio Hijack is a versatile audio processing tool that can record content from various sources, while applying multiple sound effects. The app output can be exported to popular audio file formats, such as MP3, AIFF, AAC, Apple Lossless, FLAC, or WAV.
Easy to use audio recorder featuring a stylish and user friendly interface
The Audio Hijack comes with a tabbed user interface and its usage revolves around sessions: you can create as many recording sessions as you like, specifying the input source, the output format, and the sound effects that should be applied.
Audio Hijack comes with an extensive collection of sound and audio unit effects that can be integrated into your session with a simple drag and drop. Moreover, the app also allows you to visualize the way in which the sound is handled by the recorder.
However, to gain access to all Audio Hijack functionality, you must first install the Instant On plug-in that offers you the possibility to capture content from already running sources, from the Safari browser, and from all System Audio. In addition, the Schedule Helper plug-in is required to be able to setup recording timers.
Versatile audio capturing tool that can handle various sources and comes with built-in audio effects
To streamline the recording process, Audio Hijack comes with different session templates: simply select the one suitable for the task at hand and customize it by specifying the sound source, by adding sound effects via drag and drop actions, and by choosing the output mode.
Since Audio Hijack can grab audio from any app, from your system, or from other audio input devices (microphones, mixers, and so on), you are able to create all sorts of projects, ranging from simple recordings to creating podcasts.
Furthermore, thanks to its intuitive user interface, handling the Audio Hijack audio recorder proves to be very easy, even if you are not familiar with recording and processing audio sounds.
