Posted Jun 10 2005, 07:45 PM

Rochester, NY -- June 10th, 2005 --In the July 2005 (issue 107) of MacAddict, WireTap Pro received a 4 out of 5 rating! This means that it's a "Great" product in the eyes of the MacAddict community.


Here is the info straight from the magazine.
WireTap Pro
Versatile Sound Recorder

WireTap Pro records sounds made on your mac. Sounds simple, but here are a few things we did with WireTap Pro: Recorded a Wilco concert streamed via RealPlayer from the NPR Website (www.npr.org), saved in in AIFF format, and added it to our iTunes library; captured Andy Kershaw's show on BBC Radio 3 (via the BBC Radio Player, which is built on RealPlayer) in MP3 format and burned it to a CD; and grabbed every evening broadcast of a local radio show streamed via the Windows Media Player and put it on an iPod for drive-time listening.

A Slew of Settings: WireTap Pro's Preferences and Audio Settings let you pick a sound source (Mac Audio Output for recordings sounds from your Mac, or Microphone/Line Input for recording via mic or digitizing your old vinyl), where to save the recording, and what format to save it in (MP3, AAC, AIFF, or QuickTime Movie). After choosing your settings, you simply click the Record button in the floating control window. If you you have settings you want to reuse, you can save them as Recording Sessions that you can start with a single click or schedule with iCal. You can even have a Session open a Web site or run an AppleScript before or after recording.

The Bottom Line: If you listen to audio streams on your Mac that you wish you could hear again, WireTap Pro will save them for posterity.
