Airfoil 5.11.4, Audio Hijack 4.0.7, Piezo 1.7.12, SoundSource 5.5.7

Rogue Amoeba has updated four of its audio utilities to provide full compatibility with the just-released macOS 13.1 Ventura, aided by the 11.9.2 update to the shared Audio Capture Engine. The updates include Airfoil 5.11.4 (wireless audio broadcasting), Audio Hijack 4.0.7 (full-featured audio recording), Piezo 1.7.12 (simple audio recording), and SoundSource 5.5.7 (audio input/output controls). SoundSource also eliminates a rare crash when launched at login and better matches its keyboard-based volume adjustments to those in macOS. If you’re a TidBITS member, you can purchase all the apps at a 20% discount. (Airfoil, $35, 43.2 MB, release notes; Audio Hijack, $64, 34.1 MB, release notes, Piezo, $25, 23.3 MB, release notes; SoundSource, $39, 28.0 MB, release notes; all are free updates and require macOS 10.15+)

  1. I was pleasantly surprised at how well Rogue Amoeba handled the issues raised by macOS 13.1, first with a large advisory notice when any of the affected apps launched, then with updated a few days later. Well done to Paul and his team for keeping their customers in the loop. :slight_smile:

  2. Rounding out the suite, there was also a Loopback update a couple of days ago, from the v2.2.11 that came out about a month back to v2.2.12.

  3. Indeed. Since Loopback is a rather specialized tool, we don’t track it for the Watchlist. (Which I actually realized after I had started to include it; Agen Schmitz has been off for a short while for some elective surgery—he’ll be back on the mound as our regular pitcher soon.)
