Take Control of Audio Hijack
Author: Kirk McElhearn

Publisher : TidBITS Publishing, Inc.
Version 1.0
Price: $10.00
119 pages, ebook format


In addition to writing for MyMac.com, I record a podcast, 3 Geeky Ladies, with Suzé Gilbert and Vicki Stokes, also MyMac writers. When we were preparing for launch, I put out feelers on social media about what I should use for recording the podcast. Most responses were Audio Hijack Pro. I got a copy and hit the ground running.

Transfer LP records to your computer

On February 23, 2010, in Features, by Sam Negri

A friend recently gave me some LP records, some of which were still sealed in shrink wrap. Since they were in excellent condition, I decided to transfer them to my computer using my USB turntable and Audio Hijack Pro, an excellent $32 program from Rogue Amoeba. Here are the steps for transferring records to your computer and then loading them into iTunes.

1. Connect your turntable to a USB port on your computer.

2. Launch Audio Hijack Pro.

3. Click the + sign in the bottom left, and create a new Hijack point.

4. In the right pane, click on the drop down field next to Source Type and select Audio Device.

5.In the Input Device, select USB Audio Codec. Be sure that all other USB audio devices are disconnected.
