DealBITS Drawing: Rogue Amoeba's Audio Hijack Pro

Send Article to a Friend

Back in early December, we ran a DealBITS drawing for Rogue Amoeba's Audio Hijack Pro 2.1.1 and gave away three copies to highly deserving TidBITS readers. Since then, the amoebas with attitude have released Audio Hijack Pro 2.5, adding an AAC quality selector, more variables when setting ID3 tags and file names, a "Stop Recording After" option to the Silence Monitor, full AppleScriptability, support for radios like Griffin's RadioSHARK, a plug-in that accepts input from multiple applications, the capability to record all audio emanating from your Mac at the same time, a check to make sure scheduled recordings don't overlap, and more. It's a significant update, and is free to registered users. But if you don't already own a copy of Audio Hijack Pro and want to record Internet radio programs, rip your old vinyl albums, or just about anything else related to recording audio, it's worth a look.


In this week's DealBITS drawing, you can enter to win one of three copies of Audio Hijack Pro 2.5.1, each worth $32. Entrants who aren't among our lucky winners will receive a discount on Audio Hijack Pro, so if you didn't take advantage of the discount after the last drawing, be sure to enter at the DealBITS page linked below. All information gathered is covered by our comprehensive privacy policy. Be careful with your spam filters, since you must be able to receive email from my address to learn if you've won. Remember too, that if someone you refer to this drawing wins - as happened with the Matias keyboards last week - you'll receive the same prize to reward you for spreading the word.
