Audio Hijack 3.2 boosts the power of Time Shift with better controls and a global hotkey

Rogue Amoeba's Audio Hijack has received a new major update with version 3.2, adding several major enhancements to features like Time Shift, session import and export, and more. This release of Audio Hijack also offers general support for OS X El Capitan.

The biggest update in Audio Hijack 3.2 is the update to the Time Shift Block, which allows you to pause live audio on your Mac. The interface for Time Shift now has controls for skips of 3, 10, and 30 seconds. Time Shift can also now be triggered from any app thanks to its new global keyboard shortcut, and you can also create hotkeys for pausing, resuming, jumping forward or back 10 seconds, or jumping to the live audio.

Check the list below for some of the other major improvements and additions to Audio Hijack 3.2:

  • Major Enhancement: The Import and Export of Sessions has been greatly improved. Share Sessions with friends via the Session menu. Export your own Sessions to share, or import Sessions from others!
  • Major Enhancement: The new Peak/RMS Meters Block provides precisely calibrated monitoring, with both RMS and Peak meters, a peak hold line, and a clip indicator.
  • Major Enhancement: The new Sync Block lets you add a precise delay to the audio, of up to 1000 ms (1 second), per Block.
  • Major Enhancement: The Instant On component has been updated to version 8.1, with initial support for Mac OS X 10.11 (El Capitan).

There are also some more minor enhancements in this release. FLAC files now have full support for tags, popover positions are now remembered and restored on relaunch, and the Block library has added an Advanced section. There are also fixes for several bugs.

Audio Hijack 3.2 is a free update to existing users, while new customers can purchase and download the app from Rogue Amoeba's website right now.
