Rogue Amoeba has released Piezo 1.7.9, updating the Audio Capture Engine to version 11.8.2 with a workaround for issues with FaceTime volume when using the built-in microphone, as well as an improvement in dealing with poorly implemented Audio Units. Additionally, the Piezo update reduces CPU usage, improves clock synchronization across devices, and enhances persistent device tracking. The simple audio recording app also adds support for StarLeaf as a VoIP audio source, resolves an issue where upsampling of certain low sample rates could produce audio artifacts, and makes a couple of fussy typography improvements.
