Editors' Review

Audio Hijack Pro for Mac records audio from a variety of sources and gives you the tools to process it for multiple purposes. It offers a complete set of options for both recording and conversion, and its interface, while rather utilitarian, is straightforward enough to make the program accessible to users of all experience levels.

Pros

Record from anywhere: This program can record from all kinds of sources on your Mac. You can use it with a DVD Player, iTunes, QuickTime Player, RealPlayer, and Safari. And you can quickly record calls you make on Skype and iChat through it as well.

Processing options: Once you've made your recordings, you have some options in terms of what to do with them. The processing side of the program lets you select what you want to use the recording for and what quality you want it to be. For instance, you can process something for Internet Distribution with either High or Low quality, and there are plenty of other options as well.

Cons

Extra installation: The basic program that installs initially requires a restart every time you want to record from a new source. In order to avoid this, you can download an extra Instant On feature, but it's unclear why this couldn't just be included in the main download to begin with.

Bottom Line

Audio Hijack Pro for Mac provides a good deal of functionality through a straightforward interface. While it may require some extra installation steps to get it exactly the way you want it, the quality of the program is worth it in the end. You can try this app for free, and the full purchase price is $32.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Audio Hijack Pro for Mac 2.11.0.
