My favourite audio utility gets a major update

Every single episode of This Week in Lotus (my goodness, I miss that show) that we recorded over Skype was captured using Rogue Amoeba’s Audio Hijack Pro.

This Mac OS X app has always been phenomenally good at managing the audio inputs and outputs available to a Mac system, applying filters and effects, and then writing high-quality recordings out to just about any format you can name.

However, Audio Hijack Pro has become a little long in the tooth over the past few years, with the last significant update almost a decade ago. The UI certainly looked out of place on the recent versions of OS X – Mavericks and Yosemite.

The great news is that Rogue Amoeba has just release a brand spanking new version of the product – Audio Hijack 3:

Featuring a beautiful new UI, and significant new features, this looks a huge update for loyal users of the app.

The new app costs $49 for first-time buyers, or $25 as an upgrade.

You can download a free trial from Rogue Ameoba’s site (it overlays noise on recordings of more than 10 minutes), and it’s worth checking out Jason Snell’s review for more detail.

I can’t wait to get recording with it…
