Ambrosia Wire Tap tool
Ambrosia Software today announced the release of a new Mac recording tool, WireTap Anywhere. WireTap lets users take audio from any Mac application or hardware input device and bring it to a recording application. Any programs that output audio can be selected as input devices, their output then being recorded or edited in any application that can record from the mic input or other audio input.
Audio can be sent different directions, perhaps taking an iChat conversation and recording it in Peak to be edited, or in reverse by taking audio from a program such as Logic Pro and outputting the music to iChat. Creation and editing of WireTap devices can be done from System Preferences. After the devices have been created, the audio can be routed between them. WireTap also allows for different devices to be combined. WireTap Anywhere is a Universal Binary requiring Mac OS X 10.4.11 or later and costs $130.
