- Months ago MacHeist had a free one-day special on several Mac apps and WireTap Pro was one of them.
This is the version, already keyed, they offered. Made by Ambrosia software, WTP has now been replaced by WireTap Studio which is basically the same app with a few other bells and whistles. Both versions sold/sell at $30 for a license. This version is already keyed (licensed) and free to the user.
WireTap Pro is an all-purpose digital recording device: with the click of a button, WireTap Pro allows you to record any audio on your Mac. WireTap Pro's simple but powerful interface allows you to record audio from any running applications, as well as from any microphone, line-in, headset, and even your radioSHARK.
It can save your digital recordings in the popular .mp3, AAC, QuickTime, and AIFF file formats, saving them to your hard drive for later processing/listening or directly into iTunes, or onto your iPod or other iTunes-compatible .mp3 player. You have total control over the file format, compression, and quality of your recordings.
Using presets, you can automatically save your digital music in high quality .mp3 format, your voice recordings in a more compressed, space-saving AAC format, or your DVD clips in uncompressed AIFF format... all with the click of one button. But wait, it gets better.
It has a simple appliance-like user interface and it is easy to use.
To facilitate recording streaming audio from the Internet, WireTap Pro integrates tightly with Apple's iCal, allowing you to schedule recording sessions that will automatically start up a streaming audio feed, and record it unattended. Never miss your favorite BBC Radio or NPR program again!
Even better: WireTap Pro recording sessions can be saved as "Packaged Sessions" that you can download, or send to a friend. Just a double-click will instantly make that recording session available to anyone who has WireTap Pro.
