Audio Hijack 3.0.1

by Agen G. N. Schmitz

Rogue Amoeba has released Audio Hijack 3.0.1 [1], a follow-up to the recent major update to the popular audio recording utility (reviewed in Glenn Fleishman’s “Audio Hijack 3 Bumps Up the Volume [2],” 30 January 2015). Audio Hijack 3.0.1 includes fixes for a couple of critical bugs, including a problem where audio could get crackly and eventually stop playing and a rare bug that caused the app to die at the end of a recording. The update also adds date and time tokens to recording file names, makes improvements to prevent latency growth (with more improvements to come), adds support for the Line2 and Zoom apps as VoIP input sources, and ensures that ducking quickly fades audio in and out, rather than doing hard, instant adjustments. ($49 new with a 20 percent discount for TidBITS members [3], free update for version 3.0 licenses, $25 upgrade from older versions, 14.3 MB, release notes [4], 10.9+)
