Loopback
Company: Rogue Amoeba
US $75 introductory price; $99 regular price

People who deal with audio on a regular basis are a persnickety bunch. They want everything to work in just a certain way and sometimes try to cram functionality with hardware and software to do things neither was meant to do. Or perhaps I’m projecting my own idiosyncrasies on everyone. No matter, if you have to deal with audio from various sources, you probably are already aware of Rogue Amoeba and some of their applications like Audio Hijack and NiceCast to name just a few. Well a little while ago, they also took control of a free program that a lot of podcasters have a love/hate relationship and that’s Soundflower. This program allows you to create virtual feeds to move audio around in your computer. It also is persnickety and boy I wish someone would make something easier to use. Well Rogue Amoeba did and it’s called Loopback.

Audio Hijack – User Report Review

Audio Hijack Hero Image 2

 

Audio Hijack in its most basic sense is a way to capture audio from your Mac. If you want to record audio from a microphone, a website or an application, you can do that and a whole lot more. It looks so simple to use yet can also do many complex and rewarding audio tasks.

Audio Hijack’s new interface is a lot like playing with Lego. You start with one block, join them together, add more blocks and hopefully you end up with something at the end. For this article I will mix the review and my usage experiences together and share the results.

About Mark Chappell

Mark’s a guy who lives in a shack by the sea in far western England, binge watching Netflix series in between reviewing tech and Mac related goodies. The switch to Macintosh was easy when using dreaded WinVista and adding a printer proved nigh on impossible. That tipped him over the edge and since getting a Mac he’s never looked back, including the Hackintosh years. Wanna be guitar player, intermittent podcaster, and a Taylor Swift fan.

Please wish David Cohen your ABSOLUTE best wishes in the hope he gets better soon.

Probably our longest show EVER, but it was all worth it as we had an extended conversation with Dave Hamilton from the Mac Geek Gab Podcast and BackBeat Media about Macworld, podcasting, how to sound good (like he does) and not so-so (like the GMen). Also some talk about how you should NEVER, EVER say bad words (but we sometimes do anyway). James Turner and Fitz John Baptiste has questions for the GMen and so can you over at our G+ MyMac Podcast page.
