Piezo 1.1

Send Article to a Friend

Rogue Amoeba has updated their minimalist audio recording app Piezo to offer better support for recording from voice-over-IP apps like Skype, iChat, and FaceTime. Previously, recording a conversation with Piezo caused you to hear yourself as well, which was extremely disconcerting. Piezo 1.1 now records local audio to the left channel and your caller to the right channel. It also supports drag-and-drop of source apps to the Piezo window, illuminates the Dock icon when recording, no longer prevents sleep when it’s not recording, and improves the VU meters slightly. Not yet fixed is the problem I reported in “Piezo Makes Audio Recording Dead Simple” (8 December 2011) whereby Piezo plays incoming audio from VoIP apps through the device selected in the Sound preference pane’s Output screen, rather than through the device selected in Skype or iChat. ($10 new, free update, 2.8 MB, release notes)
