I’ve been wanting to capture audio in Mac OS X – more specifically audio streams, and even more specifically RealAudio streams. I prefer to consume spoken word with the iPod while doing dishes or laundry, so any interesting things I find that are RA streams just pile up, and I never get around to listening to them.

The other week I went looking for tools to capture audio, and the only thing I found was Audio Hijack, which indeed is a good piece of software, but I feel it has too many features that I wouldn’t use and wouldn’t want to pay for.

Yesterday I read this post by Mark Bernstein, where he mentions WireTap, a free tool that simply captures all audio played to an AIFF. It has far from all the features of Audio Hijack, but it suits my purposes perfectly.

The above was posted to my personal weblog on July 19, 2003. My name is Peter Lindberg and I am a thirtysomething software developer and dad living in Stockholm, Sweden. Here, you’ll find posts in English and Swedish about whatever happens to interest me for the moment.
