WireTap Anywhere for Mac

Download.com Staff Jan 13, 2010

WireTap Anywhere is a professional audio-capture utility that can take input from any source and redirect it to any audio-recording application. That means you can take audio from your entire system, a hardware input, or an app like Skype, and then take that directly into GarageBand, Peak, or any other recording app.

You manage WireTap Anywhere through your System Preferences, and you can create and save any number of "virtual microphones," which show up almost as if they were hardware. There are other apps (including open-source ones) that can help you with this kind of redirection, but WireTap Anywhere excels with its reliability, easy interface, and ability to aggregate any combination of software and hardware inputs into a single virtual device. Though it might not be the best value, WireTap Anywhere is a solid solution to a specific problem.

Developer's Description

WireTap Anywhere provides you with a professional virtual audio patchbay for your Macintosh. Any program on your computer that generates audio can show up as a virtual audio input device, allowing you to record or process it in any other application that works with audio. For instance, you could record both sides of a Skype or iChat conversation directly into Peak for editing... or go the other way, and pipe the audio output of ProTools over Skype or iChat for a friend to listen to. With WireTap Anywhere, your applications are instantly transformed into audio inputs. Record the audio output of any application from within your favorite audio application. Tap your audio -- anytime, anyplace, anywhere.
