Audio Hijack 3.3

Rogue Amoeba has released Audio Hijack 3.3 with several notable enhancements to the popular audio recording utility. The update changes the way recording is done for AAC and Apple Lossless formats, removing the need for finalization at the end of recording and avoiding a processing delay at the end of long recordings. A Latency slider has been added to reduce audio processing time, and Audio Hijack gains full support for capturing audio from Slack’s Calls feature (for more details, see this Rogue Amoeba blog post).

The release also updates the Instant On component to version 8.2.6, improves default quality levels for MP3 and AAC recordings, enhances the Time Shift block in a number of ways, visually displays conflicts between timers in the Schedule area of the Home window, improves recognition of changes in AirPlay output device names, and enables presets for several blocks to save additional settings (such as album art in the Recorder block). Kirk McElhearn has updated “Take Control of Audio Hijack” to cover the new features. ($49 new with a 20 percent discount for TidBITS members, free update, 16 MB, release notes, 10.9+)
