MacVoices #15162: Kirk McElhearn Takes Control of Audio Hijack

Kirk McElhearn is the author of the brand new Take Control of Audio Hijack, and joins us to talk about the capabilities of Rogue Amoeba’s versatile audio recording and processing utility. With a completely revised interface, the power of Audio Hijack is now accessible to anyone who wants to record audio on their Mac. But recording is only half the story. Kirk discusses the new design, some unexpected use cases, and how his book takes a real-world task approach to learning and using the program.
